The heart of work at Hill Engineering has everything to do with residual stress. That’s why we thought it was about time we published a case study giving a general overview of what residual stress is, and why it is so important for designers and manufacturers to consider.Continue reading New case study: Residual Stress

Have you ever heard the saying, “happy as a goat?”
Neither have we, but in this case, it applies! Meet Cookie Dough and Rocky Road the Nigerian Dwarf Goats, subjects of our latest Hill Engineering pet spotlight.Continue reading HE Pet Spotlight: Cookie Dough & Rocky Road the Dwarf Goats!
Our Rapid Forge Design (RFD) software has generated a substantial amount of buzz since it’s release last year. If you’ve been keeping up with our social media accounts, you’ve probably caught us highlighting its key features and ease of use, especially through our demonstration video in which creator John Watton goes step-by-step through the closed-die impression forging design process.
For those who want a more comprehensive rundown of the software’s features and abilities, as well as plans for future design modules, John recently published an article in Forging Industry Association magazine, where he gives a history of how RFD came to be, and how it serves forgers and forging consumers.Continue reading New Rapid Forge Design Article in FIA Magazine
When we’re not performing residual stress measurements, some of the HE team members love spending time with their furry friends! Josh Hodges is no exception. He lives with his two German Shorthair Pointers, Saaz and Barley, ages 12 and 3 respectively.Continue reading HE Pet Spotlight: Saaz and Barley
We talk a lot about the residual stress measurement techniques we employ at Hill Engineering. One of the most commonly used is the Contour Method! Invented in the year 2000, and patented by Los Alamos National Laboratory, the contour method measures 2D residual stresses over a planar surface.Continue reading Contour Method 101: Two-Dimensional Mapping of Residual Stress
