His company has published over 50 engineering textbooks since its founding in 1997.

Dally has remained active with the university and engineering community after his retirement in 1997.  He continues to be involved with the Keystone Program and with introductory engineering courses. He has authored three textbooks used in ENES100 Introduction to Engineering Design, ENES102 Mechanics I, and ENES 220 Mechanics II. Dally also consults on fuses and instrumentation for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
