Event Details

Engineers Australia UK Chapter and Engineers Ireland West invite you to attend an tachnical talk and networking event in Galway, Ireland about the world's first 3D printed steel bridge.

This talk will be streamed live from the SOM offices in London into Galway, Ireland. Details about the Galway evening programme are as follows: (Room & Venue details to be confirmed.)

18.15-18.30 :- Ireland guests to arrive
18:45 :- Introduction by Dr Noel Harrison
1900 :- World first 3D steel bridge presentation broadcast starts
20:15 :- Q & A, in-house discussion on 3D printing facilitated by Dr Noel Harrison Networking and Discussion with refreshments to follow....

About the Talk:

Craig will provide an overview of the work being undertaken for the testing, simulation and design of the MX3D Bridge, the world’s first 3D printed metal bridge. The MX3D Bridge is a stainless steel pedestrian bridge, with a width of 2.5 m and a span of 10 m, and is being built using robotic welding arms. The work being undertaken encompasses observations, testing and analysis from the microstructure level to the full structural level, advanced computer modelling and the development of a long term sensor network. From 2019/20 the MX3D Bridge will replace an existing pedestrian bridge in the centre of Amsterdam. The project was recently awarded the EU STARTS prize, recognising innovation at the nexus of science, technology and the arts.


Speaker:

Dr Craig Buchanan is a research associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College London and a group leader in the Data Centric Engineering programme at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s data science institute. His research covers the testing, numerical simulation and development of design guidance for conventionally produced and 3D printed metallic hollow structural sections. He is a past winner of the Institution of Structural Engineers Young Researchers’ Conference.

Galway's in-house discussion facilitator:

Dr Noel Harrison, Programme Director of the Mechanical Engineering Degree at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway), is an expert in 3D printing.  Noel is part of the I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre that was established by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) to deliver high-impact research in advanced manufacturing. The Centre is particularly focused on additive manufacturing (3D printing), combined with the use of digital technologies in manufacturing. NUI Galway have a number of 3D printers in its engineering building (plastic, nylon and metal).

Engineers Australia UK Chapter & Engineers Ireland West Region

Engineers Australia is the peak Australian forum for the advancement of engineering and the professional development of its members in Australia and throughout the world. There are 6 overseas chapters, one of these being the UK Chapter whose role is to further the involvement of Australian Engineers in the profession while they are based in the United Kingdom and endeavouring to service and connect with its Europe based members.

Engineers Ireland is the peak Ireland forum for engineering and professional development of its members in Ireland and throughout the world.  Engineers Ireland West region covers counties Galway, Mayo and Roscommon providing a focal point for engineers of all grades and disciplines, and proactively encouraging their continuous professional development through delivery of a varied programme of lectures, seminars, site visits, golfing and social networking events. The Region is known as a centre of excellence for biomedical engineering, with significant research and development ongoing at private companies, particularly around Galway, and at third-level institutions including NUIG, GMIT and the Irish Marine Institute at Oranmore.  It encompasses part of the Gaeltacht region of Galway and Mayo and particularly welcomes participation “as Gaeilge” with an annual “Leacht as Gaeilge” now an established component of the programme of events.
