When we’re not performing residual stress measurements, some of the Hill Engineering team members love spending time with their furry friends! This is true for Debra LaChappell who lives with her golden retriever lab mix Sunshine, and her cat, Malibu!Continue reading HE Pet Spotlight – Sunshine and Malibu
We are excited to welcome another member to the Hill Engineering team, Jeremiah Webb!Continue reading Welcome to Hill Engineering, Jeremiah!
Join us in welcoming Jesse Guymon to the Hill Engineering team!
Jesse comes to us with 7 years’ engineering experience developing and designing tools, components, and assemblies with Autoliv. During his time with the automotive safety systems company, he fulfilled his role as Design Engineer with panache, utilizing SolidWorks to improve manufacturing efficiency through solid modeling.Continue reading Welcome to the team, Jesse!
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
Hill Engineering will be presenting at the upcoming SEM Annual Conference and Exposition on Experimental and Applied Mechanics in Pittsburgh, PA on June 13th through June 16th. We invite you to come see us!
This conference focuses on all areas of research and applications pertaining to experimental mechanics, and has evolved to encompass the latest technologies supporting optical methods; additive & advanced manufacturing; dynamic behavior of materials; biological systems; micro-and nano mechanics; fatigue and fracture; composite and multifunctional materials; residual stress; inverse problem methodologies; thermomechanics; and time dependent materials. Hill Engineering’s presentation will include a summary of recent work related to residual stress measurement using slotting. The abstract text is presented below.Continue reading 2022 SEM Annual Conference and Exposition on Experimental and Applied Mechanics
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!
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
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
Hill Engineering will be presenting at the upcoming Turbine Engine Technology Symposium (TETS) scheduled for September 15-17, 2021 at the Dayton Convention Center. We invite you to come see us.
The TETS Symposium is a biennial forum where the United States’ turbine engine community gathers to review and discuss the latest turbine engine technology advances. The Symposium draws an audience of approximately 1000 engineers, scientists, managers, and operational personnel from throughout the turbine engine community, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA, DARPA, DOE, FAA, engine and aircraft manufacturers, material and component suppliers, and academia.
Hill Engineering’s presentation will include a summary of recent work related to predicting residual stress and airfoil distortion from shot peening and laser shock peening. The abstract text is presented below.Continue reading Turbine Engine Technology Symposium 2021
