Hill Engineering recently participated in the virtual 2020 United States Air Force Structural Integrity Program Conference (ASIP). The ASIP Conference is specifically designed to bring together the world leaders in the area of aircraft structural integrity and to disseminate information on state-of-the-art technologies for aircraft structures in both the military and civilian fleets. Hill Engineering’s presentation included a summary of recent work related to developing a digital quality assurance record for typical aircraft maintenance processes like hold hole expansion. The abstract text is presented below along with a copy of the presentation slides.Continue reading ASIP conference 2020

2016 was an exciting year at Hill Engineering. We accomplished so much and we wanted to take a moment to recognize some of the highlights. Continue reading 2016 Highlights at Hill Engineering
The Hill Engineering employees took a quick break from all the residual stress analysis to partake in a few fall-themed festivities this season. We recognize that enjoying quality time together is an important way to strengthen our resolve as a team. What better way to do that than through everybody’s favorite activities: pumpkin carving and food! Continue reading A Feast of Fall Festivities
Hill Engineering is presenting about fatigue analysis methods for cold expanded aircraft fastener holes at the upcoming 2016 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) Conference in San Antonio, TX. Cold hole expansion is a method commonly used to induce compressive residual stress around the perimeter of fastener holes, which are common in aircraft structure. The compressive residual stress has significant benefits related to fracture and fatigue of the structure. Hill Engineering’s presentation will include a summary of current analysis methods and a plan for how these methods can evolve to allow for improvements in aircraft design and sustainment. The abstract text is presented below. Continue reading ASIP Conference
Hill Engineering is presenting about fatigue analysis as part of the AFGROW User Workshop 2016 in Layton, UT. The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for AFGROW users to exchange information and ideas related to fracture and fatigue. Hill Engineering’s presentation will include a summary of recent work on the formulation and solving of benchmarking problems in the field of fatigue crack growth analysis. The abstract text is presented below. Continue reading AFGROW User Workshop
