News and Events
Prof. Leroy Gardner was awarded the prestigious IABSE Prize 2017 ‘in recognition of his outstanding contributions to structural engineering in the areas of structural steel research, code development and teaching’. Leroy was presented the prize at the 39th IABSE Symposium in Vancouver in September 2017.
Members of the Steel Structures group, led by Prof. Leroy Gardner, are currently working with The Alan Turing Institute and the 3D printing company MX3D on the world's first metal 3D printed bridge due to be installed across a canal in Amsterdam next year. The team are working on a 'digital twin' of the bridge using FE modelling, as well as testing samples of the 3D printed steel, to anticipate the behaviour of the bridge under loading from pedestrian or cycling traffic and inform its design. Find out more here and watch some of the work in action here.
The Fifth International Experts Seminar: Stainless Steel in Structures was held at Imperial College in September and a number of the group attended and presented their work.
Members of the group attended the Eighth European Conference on Steel and Composite Structures in Copenhagen.
