SEATS AVAILABLE More information about this course
Practical interpretation is a "Hands-On" course. The microstructures, heat treatment and use of each group of alloys are presented in a lecture. The lecture is followed by viewing of actual structures on a projection screen. The features of the structures are pointed out and discussed. The students then examine the over 200 mounts at their microscope stations and compare them with an illustrated and annotated notebook of the structures. There are no required prerequisites, but the basic knowledge of sample preparation, heat treating or metallurgy will enhance the understanding of the presented material.
Students are encouraged to bring prepared metallographic specimens to the class for discussion.

Dr. Dennies has over 35 years of experience in various raw material, forging, aerospace, and aircraft related industries as a technical specialist, technical manager, and program manager. The majority of his career has been in the aerospace industry working on projects such as the Space Shuttle Main Engine, the National Launch System, the National Aerospace Plane, expendable launch systems like Delta and Titan, and the International Space Station. He has also worked on other projects including commercial aircraft such as the Boeing 787, military aircraft such as the C17 Transport and B1-B Bomber, proprietary programs such as the Ground Based Missile Defense and the X-37B Experimental Reusable Unmanned Space Plane. Dr. Dennies broadened his manufacturing experience and industrial knowledge by working in the forging industry and the raw material industry. In addition he has worked on projects concerning the biomedical devices, fasteners and energy industries.
Dr. Dennies has accumulated experience with a wide variety of materials, processes and test mechanisms through his association with the design, testing, failure analysis, and manufacturing aspects of these programs. His broad areas of expertise include failure analysis, engineering design support, material and process selection, material testing, customer or supplier interaction, and program development and management. He is a member of multiple professional organizations, where he has served on the board of trustees and several national committees, many as chairman. He has over 10 professional awards and was awarded a patent in 1988. Dr. Dennies has taught multiple courses a year since 2000, has given numerous technical presentations, and is highly published. He authored the books "How to Organize and Run a Failure Investigation" and "Robot Wars in the City of Materials."
He has been a member of ASMI for 37 years and is a 2002 ASM Fellow. He is also the recipient of the 2004 Allan Ray Putman Award and the 2011 George Roberts Award. Dan received the 2005 Orange County Engineering Council Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award and is a honoree of the coveted NASA Silver Snoopy Award. He was a founding Materials Mentor for the Eisenman Materials Camp for Students in 2000 and has attended a Materials Camp as a Materials Mentor each year since. He has been the coordinator and master teacher for Teachers Materials Camp in LA since 2004. Dan is active on the local level as member of the LA Chapter executive board and the national level on various ASMI national committees.
