Student Prize Presentations 2012

On Tuesday, 16 October the Republic of Ireland Branch will host the annual Student Prize competition evening, in Room 259, DIT Bolton St. Starting at 18:30 the nominees will each make a 10 minute presentation on their project and then answer questions from three industry-representative judges. This years entrants, representing the seven accredited degree programmes within the Branch area, are:

  • CIT: Colm Casey – Wind turbine base design;
  • DIT: Darragh O’Sullivan – The dynamic response of pedestrian footbridges to loaded pedestrians;
  • NUIG: Finn Graham & Gavin Maloney – An evaluation of the performance of prestressed concrete elements using numerical modelling and measurements from embedded sensors;
  • TCD: Ornagh Higgins – Investigation into effects of active control strategies to improve inefficiencies in wind turbines and reduce fatigue damage;
  • UCD: Robert Corbally – Calculation of wind load on wind turbines.

The evening promises to be highly informative for both industry practitioners and students (especially final-year students).
