We recently learned that some hole drilling method and contour method results were highlighted in the August 2022 issue of Railway Track and Structures. The article is titled Residual stress investigation of ultrasonic impact treated and untreated thermite welds.Continue reading Hill Engineering featured in Railway Track & Structures – August 2022
We are excited to welcome another member to the Hill Engineering team, Jeremiah Webb!Continue reading Welcome to Hill Engineering, Jeremiah!
Previously, we highlighted a new publication discussing our efforts to optimize the experimental technique for our PSR Biaxial mapping process, which generates a 2D map of residual stress, titled Measurement Layout for Residual Stress Mapping Using Slitting. We recently learned that the presented results made the Volume 62, Issue 3 cover of Experimental Mechanics for March 2022. Way to make it happen, Hill Engineering! If you’re interested, the abstract text is available below along with a link to the publication.Continue reading Hill Engineering Makes the Cover of Experimental Mechanics
I think we can all agree that eggs and pancakes are two of the best breakfast foods out there. They are even better when they’re the names of two cats that live with another Hill Engineering family. Seven-year-old Eggs and three-year-old Pancake take up residence with Eric and his wife, Lucy, where they like snuggling to their hearts’ content in their outside sunroom.Continue reading HE Pet Spotlight: Eggs and Pancake
On our last pet spotlight, we introduced you to Potato, the very active Syrian dwarf hamster. Keeping with the “food” theme, our next feature is about Quiche, the four-year-old, all-black domestic short hair who lives with her family: Caleb and Mari.Continue reading Pet Spotlight: Quiche
Over the past few months, we’ve highlighted a handful of employees and the hobbies they’ve either had for a while or ones they’ve picked up recently – when they aren’t solving all of the world’s residual stress related challenges. Our latest spotlight shines on Hill Engineering’s resident author, RD Pires (or Robby, as he’s come to be known by in the office), and his almost life-long passion of writing. I got the chance to interview Robby virtually where we talked about his latest novel, A Vast, Untethered Ocean, his inspiration, and his experience with self-publishing.Continue reading HE Hobby Spotlight: Robby – Fiction Author
Our latest vlog discussing our machining simulation capabilities is up on our YouTube channel today and it is chock-full of information for those interested addressing distortion issues caused by machining.Continue reading New Vlog: Machining Process Simulation
Staying safe and healthy during these times is something that’s on many people’s minds lately. Social distancing, washing our hands, and limiting outings are all things we can do to help “flatten the curve”. Wearing a face mask or covering when out in public is also something that can help protect others since some people with COVID-19 can show no symptoms. Face masks can be beneficial in areas with many people, since they can reduce the number of droplets we release when we speak, cough, or sneeze. Continue reading Face mask making with Hill Engineering
