CHUCK STEARNS ANNOUNCEMENT - It is with extreme regret that we announce the passing of Mr. Charles F. (Chuck) Stearns, one of NBE’s top engineering consultants. Before forming NBE, I had the privilege of working with Chuck at both Hamilton Standard and Chandler Evans. Chuck was a legend at Hamilton, as both an engineer and inventor, amassing more than 50 patents during his time there. At Chandler Evans, I got to see his brilliance first-hand, as I sat next to him, and worked with him on a daily basis, for three years. It was not at all uncommon for us to leave work stuck on some perplexing technical issue, only for Chuck to come up with some “breakthrough” by the next morning. As an engineer, he was a “pro’s pro,” exhibiting outstanding work ethic, integrity, and cooperation at all times. Additionally, he was quite unassuming and was nice to everybody, a fairly rare trait for someone so accomplished. As fortunate as I was to have him as a co-worker and mentor, I was even more fortunate to have him as a friend. I am glad that he lived 87 good years, and that his mind was still as sharp as a tack even at the end, but I will always miss him.

August 2001 - The paper "Vibration and Stability of 3000 HP Titanium Construction Chemical Process Blower" was recently awarded FIRST PRIZE in the Outstanding Field Case History category at Bently Nevada's ISCORMA conference. The paper was co-authored by Mark Corbo, president of No Bull Engineering, and Les Gutzwiller, president of Robinson Industries of Zelienople, Pennsylvania.

The ISCORMA (International Symposium on Stability Control of Rotating Machinery) conference convened in Lake Tahoe, California in August 2001, and boasted attendees from nearly 30 countries representing five continents. Over 60 technical papers were presented at the conference, with prizes being awarded in only two categories.

In citing one of the reasons for selecting our paper for recognition, the ISCORMA Scientific Committee noted, "This paper is unique in that its content met the stated objective of a problem and solution."
