Design for Pedestrian Bridge Brief

The Corus Students Awards Structural Bridge Design has been organised by The Steel Construction Institute, and is one of a pair of undergraduate prize award competitions; the other competition covers the design of building structures. The objective of the Competition is to encourage excellence in steel bridge design.

The competition is restricted to undergraduates.

The project Brief this year is to design a structure to carry a pedestrian link and cycleway over a major river that separates two parts of a major city. A wide range of solutions is available, and the client is seeking a cost-effective, elegant solution. This project is intended both to motivate and challenge the entrants. The competitors are expected to demonstrate sound engineering skills and structural design and to produce an elegant structural solution.

SUBMISSIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY All students intending to submit an entry for this competition should inform the academic tutor in charge of the project at their university, who should submit a Notice of Intent form (page 20) by Friday 18 January 2008. Completed submissions should be handed to the tutor in sufficient time to allow for the selection of the best entry from the university.

SENDING SUBMISSIONS TO THE SCI The chosen submission from each university must be received at the SCI by 4:00 pm on Friday 6 June 2008. Late submissions will not be accepted.
