Welcome Dallen Andrew

We would like to welcome Dallen Andrew to Hill Engineering. Dallen has 10 years of experience as a mechanical engineer supporting aircraft structural integrity programs. He received a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Utah State University in 2009, and a MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah in 2011.

During his career, Dallen has gained experience in many aspects of aircraft structural integrity, with specialization in the fatigue and fracture of metals. He has worked on many projects requiring him to utilize his capabilities in  fatigue crack growth analysis, fracture mechanics, durability and damage tolerance analysis (DADTA), fatigue testing, continuing damage, residual stress, finite element analysis (FEA), and non-destructive inspection.

Dallen is an organizer of the Engineered Residual Stress Implementation (ERSI) working group developing the analytical framework to allow the benefits from deep engineered residual stresses to be applied to aircraft inspection intervals for the United States Air Force. Dallen has significant experience supporting the A-10 and T-38 aircraft fleets. He also has significant expertise in the use of AFGROW and NASGRO fracture mechanics and damage tolerance software packages.

Vlog: How to Use the Nikon ModelMaker H120 3D Scanner

Hello Readers!

If you aren’t subscribed to our YouTube channel, we’d like to announce that our latest vlog is now live .

In this episode, we break down the steps to using the Nikon ModelMaker H120 3D scanner, the newest instrument in our laboratory arsenal. Engineer Ryan leads us through the demonstration, taking a simple hammer from physical part to solid model.

While his skills are impressive, it’s just a taste of the 3D scanner’s capabilities. The ModelMaker H120’s high resolution and versatility allows us to accurately capture complex geometries. If you need a part scanned, Hill Engineering is now offering services. After watching the video below, head on over to our website to contact us.
