Join ASME & Engineers Joint Committee of Long Island for an upcoming webinar!
Date: Thursday, September 17, 2020Time: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
The Zoom webinar will open up at 6:15 to let participants make sure they are connected properly and to network prior to the seminar. The seminar will start promptly at 6:30.
Seminar: “Avoidance of Legal & Ethical Professional Practice Pitfalls”
Description: This presentation will cover topics including confidentiality and privilege; records of design calculations; the obligation to preserve electronically stored information; and the role of the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). We will examine the relationship of the engineer with members of the construction team and the ultimate user; explore the force of codes as opposed to published bulletins, and define the proper reaction of the engineer to a lawsuit commenced by the client in an ongoing project. We will also discuss the following hot button issues: fee-splitting, “rubber stamping”, conflicts of interest, gifts, kickbacks, bribes as well as rendering opinions outside the scope of confidence. Many of these topics willbe elaborated on through discussion of administrative and judicial cases. This workshop will strengthen your understanding of engineering ethics in an informative and thought-provoking manner.
Speaker: Marc S. Krieg, P.E., Attorney at Law, Krieg Associates, P.C.
Fee: $20 per attendee – Each attendee must register separately to get credit and must be viewed on a separate device to allow for answering the assessment of learning questions individually.
This seminar will provide 2 PDH and is approved for the Ethics Seminar requirement by NYS.

Program Description – Fracture mechanics is the field of mechanics concerned with the study of the propagation of cracks in materials. It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of experimental solid mechanics to characterize the material's resistance to fracture1. This presentation will cover the historical development of fracture mechanics, concepts of linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics (EPFM) for crack mode characterization, stress intensity fields and validity of fracture criteria.
About the Speaker – Dr. Dorinamaria Carka specializes in computational solid mechanics, fracture, and modeling of multifunctional, smart materials such as ferroelectrics and ferromagnetics at different length scales. Her research focus has been on the computational modeling and fracture mechanics of ductile and ferroelectric materials. Prior to joining New York Tech’s mechanical engineering department, Dr. Carka served as a postdoctoral scholar at the Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Systems Engineering Center at the University of California at Los Angeles. She received her Ph.D. in engineering mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin, and her M.Sc. in mechanical engineering at the University of Thessaly in Greece.
UPDATE: The following Long Island Section event for this coming Wednesday is cancelled. Hofstra University is closed this week due to the coronavirus.
We expect to reschedule this event and will contact you once we have that information available. Thank you for your understanding!

AIAA/IEEE(AESS) Joint Section Meeting

Presentation: The Grumman Lunar Module
Speaker: Ms. Lois Lovisolo - Former Northrop Grumman Historian, and Former Bethpage Public Library Director
Location: Bethpage Public Library, 47 Powell Avenue, Bethpage, NY
In October of 1957, the successful launch of Russia's Sputnik shocked the nation and invigorated America's aircraft companies. After a number of Soviet 'firsts' in space, President John Kennedy upped the stakes by promising we would put a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth before the end of the decade. Grumman bid on, and lost, several of the ensuing competitions for Apollo hardware. But in l962, the lunar excursion module was awarded to Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation - the last major contract to be awarded by NASA. This is the story of the background, building and success of Grumman's engineering.
Lois Lovisolo was employed by Grumman from 1978 to 1994, serving as assistant to the historian and then as Corporate Historian starting in 1985. After leaving Grumman, she became a librarian.

Seminar: “Ethical Concepts, Expectations & Dilemmas”
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
Hilton Garden Inn Melville, 1575 Round Swamp Rd, Plainview, NY 11803
Phone: 516-755-5552 (Front Desk)
Moral philosophy, or ethics, is the study of right and wrong. Ethical behavior is influenced by education, experience and social norms. We will discuss basic ethical philosophical concepts and how certain theories have helped shape the laws of our land. We will also discuss the tremendous trust placed upon design professionals by the general public and how ethical violations erode that privilege. Learning objectives are: understanding the basic concepts of moral philosophy; review specific theories that shape the rules and regulations of design professionals; discussion of the resulting public expectations; and review of case studies highlighting ethical dilemmas and applicable regulations.

Increased Reimbursement Offer to ASME Long Island Section Members
In reflecting on this year’s momentous 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the ASME LI Section members are proud that the Apollo Lunar Module was designed and built by Grumman here on Long Island and that the LM has been previously designated as an ASME National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, the Cradle of Aviation Museum is holding several activities, among them the June 6th “Apollo at 50 Anniversary Dinner.” In recognition of the role that Long Island engineers played in the design and construction of the landmark Apollo Lunar Module, and to make participation more affordable, the ASME Long Island Section is increasing its reimbursement offer from $50 to $100 for up to twenty of its members who purchase a ticket and attend this dinner. We hope to see you there!
