This week the “Meet the Team” series introduces Morgan Gallagher of the EWI Materials group. Morgan has co-authored and delivered a number of presentations on resistance spot welding of galvanized sheet steel and elevated temperature cracking susceptibility of Alloy C-22. Please feel free to contact Morgan if you have any questions or related to EWI or materials related issues. You can reach him at 614.688.5000 or email@example.com.
Morgan Gallagher works as an applications engineer in the materials group at EWI. He specializes in the welding metallurgy of low-alloy steels, stainless steels, and nickel-based alloys – among other alloy groups. His work has included failure analysis, weld procedure development, dissimilar metal joining, engineering consulting duties, weldability testing, microstructural characterization, and materials and process selection.
In his position at EWI, Morgan uses both his academic and industrial background to support projects, directly assist 200+ member companies, and to develop internal research projects with industrial relevance.
Background and Project Experience
Morgan has conducted research on Electrode Life Extension During the Resistance Spot Welding of Galvanized Steel Sheet (master’s thesis), and on the Elevated Temperature Cracking Susceptibility of Alloy C-22 Weld Metal (doctoral dissertation). This research included the use of standard and advanced metallurgical characterization, the use of a variety of weldability test methods (varestraint, hot-ductility, and strain-to-fracture testing), as well as the development of technical writing and presentation skills. Morgan has co-authored and delivered a number of presentations on these research activities.
Prior to joining EWI, Morgan worked for Acute Technological Services, Inc. (ATS) in Houston, TX. Morgan’s work at ATS included intimate familiarization with ASME, API, DNV, and NACE codes. One area of specialization during his time at ATS was the welding and manufacturing of drilling risers; during this project Morgan spent considerable time as a consultant in both Norway and Malaysia.
