Award List:

Modeling capability for realizing engineered residual stress due to mechanical surface treatment

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$67,046.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Michael R. Hill, President
Abstract:
Laser Peening (LP) and Low Plasticity Burnishing (LPB) are two recently emerging surface treatment technologies capable of introducing deep, near-surface residual stress. While judicious use of these treatments is often of significant benefit to structural component fatigue lives, no prediction… More

Modeling capability for realizing engineered residual stress due to mechanical surface treatment

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$451,072.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Adrian T. DeWald, Research Engineer
Abstract:
Advanced surface treatments like laser shock peening (LSP) can significantly improve the mechanical performance of turbine engine airfoils. For example, LSP is currently in production to improve the FOD tolerance on a number of fan-blade leading edges. Success in these applications of LSP has come… More

Design/Life Prediction Tools for Aircraft Structural Components with Engineered Residual Stresses

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase I

$99,779.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Michael R. Hill, President
Abstract:
Hill Engineering is committed to the development and application of engineered residual stress, which is the intentional use of residual stress treatments coupled with sound engineering analysis to improve the performance of metallic structure. Hill Engineering's experience with recent aerospace… More

Near-Surface Residual Stress Measurements for Aerospace Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,995.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Adrian T. DeWald, Managing Member – (916) 635-5706
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: It is widely recognized that near surface residual stresses play a significant role in fatigue performance. Tensile residual stresses are of concern because they accelerate fatigue crack initiation and fatigue crack growth relative to what would occur in the absence of residual stress.… More

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,971.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Adrian T. DeWald, Managing Member – (916) 635-5706
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Hill Engineering is committed to developing and expanding residual stress engineering technology. The proposed program will develop an approach for quality management of residual stresses in aerospace forgings and will demonstrate important elements of this approach on a representative… More

Efficient shaping or reshaping of complex 3D parts using engineered residual stress

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,942.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Adrian T. DeWald, Managing Member – (916) 635-5706
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Due to their excellent strength-to-weight characteristics, integral components (i.e., thin-walled components machined from a single piece of material, which typically consist of a series of pockets, ribs, and stiffeners, have become commonplace on modern aircraft structure. The… More
