The Design Engineer Video Blog – Bridge Beams

As blogged late last year we are uploading a series of 12 video blogs about Bridge and Culvert Design. This week Steve Lowe, our Senior Design Engineer will be discussing how a prestressed concrete bridge beam works.

Steve has in-depth knowledge of design and detailing using the latest Eurocodes to give our clients the best possible design solution for their project.  Graduating from Texas A&M University with B.S. in Civil Engineering he completed his full time education at the University of Cambridge graduating with a Master of Philosophy in Bridge Engineering.  While having practical experience in some of Ireland’s most prestigious engineering practices he also lectured in both Ireland and the States.

These blog pieces which we will upload each week give answers to some of the repeated questions we have received.  We do receive a lot of student questions and we hope this helps explain some of the basic elements. The uploads are filmed at our factory with Steve answering one question each time.

You can watch a new video each week here on our blog or sign up to receive them directly to your email using the form below.
