Event description

Description

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 10.5 m, and was 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. The MX3D Bridge will ultimately replace an existing pedestrian bridge in the centre of Amsterdam. The project has been awarded an EU STARTS prize, the Public Award at the Dutch Design Awards 2018 and the Research Development: Creating the future prize at TechFest 2018.

Dr Craig Buchanan is Lecturer in Construction 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.
