Dr. Glenn Daehn
Mars G. Fontana Professor Of Metallurgical Engineering, Executive Director
Honda-OSU Partnership Program
Glenn S. Daehn is a The Mars G. Fontana Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. He also is the Executive Director of the Honda-Ohio State Partnership Program.
His research group has been actively developing electromagnetic metal forming 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 and Chair 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. 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 the National Network of Manufacturing Innovation's Institute on Lightweight Metals, LIFT.
