View Research Gate Profile

Dale P. Bentz has built a distinguished career as a Chemical Engineer with the Inorganic Materials Group of the Materials and Structural Systems Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, Hood College with a M.S. in Computer and Information Science, and Mount Saint Mary’s University with a M.A. in teaching. An expert in the field of concrete and building materials research and development, he has published 330 papers which have been cited over 6,400 times. He has made invaluable contributions to understanding the properties of cement based and fire resistive materials. Currently, his research is focused on the application of computer modeling to relate microstructure to material properties for random porous media. In addition to his position at NIST, Mr. Bentz is also a member of the American Concrete Institute and the American Society for Testing and Materials. The quality and significance of his work has been recognized with numerous awards, including the U.S. Department of Commerce Silver Medal (2009), and the Frank G. Erskine award by the Expanded Shale, Clay, and Slate Institute (2007).
