2005 Winners Announced!
At their meeting at PCI on August 2, 2005, the Student Education Judging Committee selected the Engineering Student Design Award (Big Beam Contest) winners. First place winners from each of the six PCI Zones, along with the International entries considered as Zone 7, competed for the Overall Championship. The Overall winners and Zonal winners, along with the associated PCI and CPCI Producers, can be downloaded below.
The Big Beam Contest is organized by PCI's Student Education Committee (Pat Hynes, Chair) and sponsored by Sika Corporation. The objective is for teams of students to fabricate and test a precast, prestressed concrete beam with the help of local PCI producer members. Prizes are awarded for the most efficient design, highest load capacity, best report, and other categories.
Applications for the 2006 Big Beam Contest are due at PCI by March 15, 2006, and test reports by June 15, 2006.
