Alpine receives Ben Franklin innovation grant

Alpine has won an Innovation Adoption Grant from Ben Franklin Technology Partners to collaborate with researchers at Penn State University on design optimization and site-specific selection of hydraulic soil mixing equipment.  The 12-month project win consist of development of a soil characterization protocol, numerical 3D modeling of soil-equipment interaction, and optimization of geometric design, torque requirements, and speed.  Computer modeling will be validated with both bench and field scale experiments.  The goal of the Ben Franklin Technology Partners is to accelerate technology development and commercialization in the state of Pennsylvania, and to create high-paying, sustainable jobs for Pennsylvanians.

Alpine is proud to participate in this project and of our role in supporting economic growth in Central Pennsylvania!
