Hill Engineering will be presenting at the 2024 SEM Annual Conference and Exposition on Experimental and Applied Mechanics in Vancouver, WA, from June 3rd through June 6th. 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 the hole drilling method. The abstract text is presented below.

A special Issue of Experimental Mechanics on Advances in Residual Stress Technology in Honor of Drew Nelson was recently published. The Special Issue recognizes Dr. Nelson, Mike’s PhD advisor at Stanford University and a leader in the residual stress community, on becoming emeritus after 40 years of research contributions and teaching on the experimental determination of residual stresses and their effects on fatigue.

This week, we have uploaded a new vlog to Hill Engineering’s YouTube channel revolving around a particularly handy residual stress measurement technique. The hole drilling measurement method is one of our most popular residual stress measurement options, and involves the incremental drilling of a small hole into the surface of a specimen. Watch the video below and read on to learn more about the hole drilling method. Continue reading Hole drilling residual stress measurement method
