On April 30 and May 1, 2014, Don Cohen, PhD, an expert in surface roughness and its effects, will lead a two-day short course on surface finish, friction, wear and texture in Livonia, Michigan. Cohen is the founder of Michigan Metrology. Topics included in the course:
- Roughness, waviness and form
- Instruments for measuring texture
- Filtering surface texture measurements
- Surface texture parameters
- Surface energy
- Data analysis
- Specifying surface texture.
This workshop is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians working in the fields of automotive, aerospace, materials, polymers, and others.

About the Instructor
In 1994, Dr. Cohen established Michigan Metrology to help engineers and scientists solve problems related to “Squeaks, leaks, friction, wear, appearance, adhesion and other issues,” using 3D Surface MicroTexture Measurement and Analysis.
Prior to forming Michigan Metrology, Dr. Cohen was V.P. of Engineering at WYKO Corporation (now part of Bruker Corporation), developing surface metrology instrumentation. He served as Vice Chairman/Chairman of the ANSI/ASME B46.1 Surface Texture Standards committee from 2000-2011 and is past Chairman of the STLE-Detroit section. He holds a B.S. / M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Optical Sciences.
