Our very own Nevil Gomes, EI (Indianapolis Bridge Group) recently had his research paper published in the ASCE journal! This research, part of his graduate degree at the University of Cincinnati, explores the use of beam stiffeners to strengthen corrugated plate structures using a software called CANDE (Culvert ANalysis and DEsign).
The paper recommended various ways to design and analyze of culverts. The study found that it is possible to design lighter, longer, and more cost-effective structures by using stiffened plates. As of August 5, the paper has been downloaded 28 times. Check it out here: https://bit.ly/2ZNZF9T
