SAMPE Benelux Bridge Building contest 2021

The SAMPE Benelux Chapter has the great pleasure to announce the 2021-2022 Bridge Building Contest: an exercise in design, manufacturing and testing of a scaled bridge model in composites!

Bachelor, Master and Phd students are invited to form a team which will be tasked to design and build a composite bridge.

The contest duration is five months and could be performed within a course or project framework. Students will have to use their knowledge and creativity to design a bridge. Students will learn and expand their abilities in composite manufacturing and engineering design: starting from a concept, design calculations and material selection, they will eventually go to bridge manufacturing and testing of the bridge element.

The team with the best performing bridge takes home a € 400 prize!
