Dr. Glenn Daehn
Fontana Professor, Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Ohio State University
Glenn S. Daehn is The Mars G. Fontana Professor of Metallurgical Engineering in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University
* His research group has been actively developing impulse- based manufacturing and metalworking technologies for the past 20 years and current applications are in the use of very high transient pressures for forming, joining, cutting and precision shape calibration in manufacturing processes. He is one of the founding members of the International Impulse Forming Group. He also has research interests in the high temperature creep deformation of solids, the reactive processing of ceramics to create ceramic-metal composites. One long-term theme in his work is using unusual mechanics or reactions to open new paths to manufacturing processes and innovating manufacturing processes. Daehn was named a National Young Investigator by NSF, was recipient of the Hardy Medal of TMS (1992), and named a Fellow of ASM in
2010. Daehn's academic training includes a BS from Northwestern University (1983), and MS and PhD degrees from Stanford University (1987), all in Materials Science and Engineering.
* Professor Daehn has also been interested in engaging university assets to improve the local technical and economic environment. He has been engaged in promoting the development of materials science courses in high schools; he is the founding director of the Ohio Manufacturing Institute and a pillar leader in Agile Metalworkin for the National Network of Manufacturing Innovation's Institute on Lightweight Metals, LIFT.
Continuing Its Annual Output Of Technical Discussions And Networking Opportunities
This Summit Brings Together The Latest OEM Case Studies Looking At The Joining, Forming And Manufacturing Of Lightweight Materials
This exciting two-day agenda will feature the latest case studies on the practical application of the latest manufacturing technologies for joining, forming and quality assurance applicable to a wide spectrum of materials. Looking at the most suitable manufacturing processes for diverse strength aluminum, steel, magnesium and composites, no similar event will provide the same depth of knowledge and level of details to aid the cost effective and process efficient adoption of new technologies.
