Applied Mechanics is dedicated to the application of advanced engineering mechanics to solve practical design, analysis, and manufacturing problems. We exist to supply our clients with the level of assistance they need, at the highest level of integrity available. Customer involvement is encouraged to the greatest extent possible.
Located in Athens, GA, Applied Mechanics provides advanced analytical expertise to clients throughout the world. Experienced in the analysis and manufacturing of both machinery and heavy equipment, we can help identify and solve equipment problems in any industrial setting. Applied Mechanics uses ANSYS Mechanical for the design and analysis of pressure vessels, piping, and a wide variety of manufacturing equipment.
The company began in 1993 when the founder, Richard T. Hallman PE started performing analysis for Louisville-based metallurgical laboratory and a pressure vessel manufacturer in his basement. In 1996, Applied Mechanics Company was registered as an engineering firm in KY but remained a part-time effort. In 2002, at the end of Mr. Hallman’s contract to manage the metallurgical laboratory that was an early client, the company became a full-time effort. Reflecting how the customer base has grown from local clients in the USA to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, we became Applied Mechanics International, LLC in 2005. Applied Mechanics is a registered engineering firm in Kentucky (2369) and Texas (F-14729). Engineers are licensed in California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
