Matthew Haslett from TWI in Granta Park visited the College yesterday to assess bridge construction materials with AS Physics students. The students were also involved in assessing the parameters and working through the calculations that a design engineer would complete when deciding on the materials and sizes required to meet the design brief for a bridge.
Matthew is a mechanical engineer with TWI and carries out engineering assessments of structures including failure analysis of oil and gas pipelines, oil rigs, bridges, cranes and vehicles such as oil tankers.
