Steel Bridge

Steel Bridge has been of to a bit of a slow start this year. We have a new President, so him and I, as the VP, have been working hard together to do everything that has to be taken care of. We are learning a lot in the process. We’ve had really good turn outs at all of out meetings so far, which is really encouraging. Most of our members are either freshman or sophomores, though, so we really need to start at the basics for bridge design. To do that, we wanted to get a faculty member to give them a crash course in bridge design. After talking to a few people, I ended up meeting with the guy who actually teaches a bridge design course here, Dr. Roy. He seems really interested in helping us and wants to do more than just give a crash course. He told me that he’d like to be part of the whole project, and help us with everything he possibly can. Dr. Roy has a lot of connections to firms in the Lehigh Valley (donations???), and when he was a grad student, he actually was a judge for a Steel Bridge Competition. He also knows some current grad students who would be interested in helping us as well. Obviously, having Dr. Roy would be a huge asset to our team, so we are in the process of getting him on board. Once we get him involved, the design process will surely pick up speed!
