Scotland's Emerging Engineer 2021 - Alice Butler

Well done to Alice who has been named Scotland's Emerging Engineer 2021 by ICE Scotland for her paper:
‘The Influence of Top-Hat Strengthening Solutions on Shear Stresses in a Railway Bridge Girder using Finite Element Analysis’.


Alice said: “This project incorporated hand calculations, and finite element analysis to explore different options for bridge strengthening top-hat design. By making changes to standard designs we can decrease installation time and costs, improve site health and safety and reduce disruption to the railways.


“Entering this competition was a big personal challenge, I am pleasantly surprised I have made it this far, and I am looking forward to the next stage.”


ICE Scotland Director, Hannah Smith, said: “Civil Engineering is a profession tacking the world’s biggest challenges and we saw this in spades in our ICE Scotland Emerging Engineers Awards.

Many congratulations from us all at MHB Consultants.

Let us make the difference to your next project
