Join us Thursday, March 22 for dinner and presentation
The aerospace and nuclear industries have developed greatly over the last 60 years, and pressures of modern day economics have changed the requirements surrounding selection of materials. Differences in materials and in procedures for selecting materials are discussed, in light of advances in priorities and realities for the Materials Engineer. The topics will be of interest both to seasoned engineers, who have seen modifications to their standard selection approach evolve over time, and to early career engineers, who are looking for guidance and insight in the modern world of material selection. Focus is provided on the effects of green programs, lean quality initiatives, specification origins, and research funding on materials selection process and criteria.
Daniel is a Staff Engineer in Design Metallurgy with Pratt & Whitney, providing materials selection expertise in the design, manufacture, and service of jet engines. Prior to Pratt & Whitney, he was a Senior Materials Engineer with Westinghouse Electric Company, advising for design and service of nuclear power plant primary systems. Previously, he was a Research Assistant in Inertial Confinement Fusion with MIT’s Plasma Science Fusion Center.
Daniel has received Bachelor’s Degrees in Nuclear Engineering and Literature from MIT. He has received a Master’s Degree in Engineering Science (Materials) from RPI, focusing on Aerospace Superalloys. Daniel is a Licensed Professional Engineer for Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in the States of Connecticut and Missouri. He is the Chair of the Hartford Section of ASM International.
