Have you been involved in a project where research was successfully applied in practice? Our case study competition celebrates the role that research plays in delivering great structural engineering projects worldwide.
Your case study could describe project-driven research and development, collaboration with academia and industry that led to practical outcomes in a built structure, or existing research that was applied in a new context.
Your case study should cover:
Please be specific when describing project benefits and outcomes, defining the benefits either quantitatively or qualitatively relative to normal practice.
The case study can contain up to three images or diagrams and a maximum of 1500 words. Note: only the first three images or diagrams will be accepted.
Judges will consider:
