T he award is in recognition of Freeman’s time and effort in developing ASTM Standard Designation D7891.

Tim Freeman, managing director of Freeman Technology, has been presented with the ASTM’s Richard S Ladd Standards Development Award.

The award is in recognition of his time and effort in developing ASTM Standard Designation D7891: ‘Standard Test Method for Shear Testing of Powders using the Freeman Technology FT4 Powder Rheometer Shear Cell’.

‘We are thrilled to have received this prestigious award from ASTM in recognition of our efforts,’ said Freeman. ’I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the Freeman team for their hard work and contribution to this project.’

ASTM D7891 details the apparatus and procedures used to evaluate the incipient failure properties of a powder under consolidation, including the determination of cohesion, unconfined yield strength and flow function.
