Peter Debney joins Hugh Morrison as speaker at IABSE ‘Future of Design’ Conference 2017
The full-day conference took place on the 21st April 2017 at the University of Sheffield and inspired future generations as well as promoted the fundamentals of design. It is the first time IABSE, the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering, hosted an event in Sheffield.
Hugh Morrison of Hugh Morrison Associates and author of the acclaimed ‘Structural Engineering: Art and Approximation’ book, invited Oasys Application Specialist, Professor Peter Debney, to join him present a section of the interactive workshop. The aim of the workshop was to demonstrate how approximation of the structural behaviour of a long-span structure using hand calculations can provide an understanding of its dynamic response. The example structure used is the Merchant’s Bridge in Castlefield, Manchester with Oasys GSA being the software of choice to validate the delegate’s results.
“Inspiring, eye-opening, challenging and hugely rewarding. Engineering and architecture superstar speakers talking about mind blowing projects… a must attend for all young engineers”.
