Hill Engineering is presenting about residual stress in welding as part of the EPRI International Light Water Reactor Materials Reliability Conference and Exhibition. The objective of the conference is to gather the leading domestic and international nuclear engineers, materials scientists, and vendors in a forum for discussing and reporting the latest research regarding the reliability of materials in Light Water Reactor Vessels and their components. Hill Engineering’s presentation will include a summary of recent work on residual stress measurement for an excavate and weld repair mockup. The abstract text is presented below.

We love planes
The dawn of the airplane changed the way we humans viewed the world. In a relatively short amount of time, travel across oceans was reduced from a month or more onboard a sea vessel to a few hours in the air. Getting from one side of the country to the other no longer meant spending days on a train, but a quick flight across state borders. It’s easy to see why planes were welcomed so eagerly into modern society.
But beyond convenience, have you ever taken the time to just consider the technology behind airplanes and what they are capable of? Continue reading We love planes
ASME 2016 Pressure Vessels & Piping Conference
Hill Engineering is proud to deliver a presentation as part of the David Smith Memorial Symposium at the upcoming ASME 2016 Pressure Vessels & Piping Conference. The presentation delivered at PVP2016 will include a summary of recent work on residual stress measurement for an excavate and weld repair mockup that was performed in collaboration with EPRI. This novel work will help the industry address issues related to residual stress in welding. The abstract text is presented below. Continue reading ASME 2016 Pressure Vessels & Piping Conference
