SPEAKERS TONI KOTNIK (born 1969, Germany) received his Ph.D. degree (Dr.sc. Nat.) in mathematics from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, in 1999. After completion of his second degree in architecture he worked as senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and as studio master at the Architectural Association (AA) in London. Dr Kotnik was Assistant Professor at the Institute for Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck and Associate Professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. He is principal of d’HKL, a Zurich-based office focusing on experimental and research-oriented architectural design, and has been lecturing wordwide including Harvard University, Copenhagen Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Princeton University, the Bartlett School of Architecture, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Sydney University of Technology, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and MoMA New York. His practice and research work has been published and exhibited internationally, including the Venice Biennale, and is centered on the integration of knowledge from science and engineering into architectural thinking and the design process. JAVIER MANTEROLA graduated in Civil Engineering from the Polytechnical University of Madrid (UPM) in 1962. In 1964 he obtained his PhD in Civil Engineering from the UPM and began to work at the Eduardo Torroja Institute. In 1966 he joined Carlos Fernández Casado S.L. as engineer and partner, where he has been working up to date and holds the position of President/C.E.O. For forty years the main line of his work has been the analysis and design, as well as construction counselling for bridges and unique buildings. Since 1976 Javier Manterola is Professor for Bridge Engineering at the Technical University of Madrid. Javier Manterola has participated in more than 230 projects in Spain, Europe and Latin America. The activity he has developed to mastery and for which he is known internationally is the design of over 200 bridges and viaducts, many of which are considered as the best structural realisations in Spain in the past 25 years. Javier Manterola has been conferred numerous national and international awards. He has published many articles in Spanish and international journals and has collected his experience and knowledge on bridges in a two-volume book, “Bridges - Notes for their Design, Analysis and Construction”. He has awarded the IABSE International Award of Merit in Structural Engineering in 2006.


SPEAKERS JORGE BERNABÉU is PhD Civil Engineer, expert in bridges and multidisciplinary civil work projects. He is Associate Professor at the School of Civil Engineering of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) in the subjects of Design, History of Construction and Landscape. He is project manager at IDOM where he has developed numerous transport infrastructure projects among which are several railway stations (Atocha at Madrid, Joaquín Sorrolla at Valencia, San Cristobal at Coruña), tramways (Constantine in Algeria) and bridges (Dune bridge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia). He is furthermore the author of publications and research projects on the history of structures and the heritage value of public works.

ALEJANDRO BERNAÉU is PhD Civil Engineer, expert in structures of singular buildings. He leads his own consultancy firm, Bernabéu Engineers, and is lecturer at the School of Architecture in Madrid (UPM). He has worked with well-known architects, designing and developing the structure of innovative projects like Caixaforum Madrid (Herzog & de Meuron), BMCE Tower in Rabat, Morocco (Rafael de la Hoz), Lima Convention Centre in Peru (ACXT), or three stress ribbon footbridges over the Tajo River in Toledo (Burgos & Garrido). He has being awarded with the IABSE Prize 2015, by the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering and with the Prize for Outstanding Young Engineers 2013, by the Spanish Civil Engineers Association in Madrid.


CONTEST I INTERNATIONAL COMPETION OF TABLE-LIKE 3D STRUCTURES

The aim of the competition is to design and build an efficient table-like 3D structural system that can span 80 cm over a minimum volume of 50 x 50 x 50 cm3. The structural system typology is FREE except that it must meet the following requirements: 1 Minimum internal free volume: 50 x 50 x 50 cm3 (figure 1). 2 The structural system supports can only touch the ground in a 80 cm diameter circumference as shown in the figure (3). It is very important for the supports to be placed exactly along this circumference. 3 Maximum external volume: cylinder of diameter 80 cm and height 100 cm (figure 2). The material used can be balsa Wood (specific weight 2 kN/m3) or Knex bars (commercial brand) or a combination of both. The joints in the balsa wood structure can be built with specially designed elements in balsa wood or using Knex connectors or glue. Avoid any other reinforcement material. IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO GLUE CONTINOUSLY WOOD SHEETS SO THE BARS BECOME A PIECE OF LAMINATED WOOD. It is strongly recommended to reinforce the joints and the area where the load is going to be applied (loading surface of about 15 x 15 cm2) (figure 3). Teams are encouraged to include horizontal bracing linking the supports to avoid their horizontal displacement. If you have any query regarding the table-like 3D structure design, building or testing process, please contact cperez.eps@ceu.es

Requirements on teams and contest rules

1 Students are asked to form teams (with a maximum of three students in a group). The team members should contact cperez.eps@ceu.es before January 25th 2018 to confirm they are going to participate in the competition. 2 Every team should submit to cperez.eps@ceu.es a picture of the 3D structure build before February 5th at 18:00 hours. 3 The 3D models should be brought directly to the the competition place: the Structural and Testing Laboratory in the Institute of Technology of CEU San Pablo University on Tuesday, February 6th. The time of the contest will be published the previous week. The aim of the competition is the 3D structural system efficiency (bearing the highest load with the lowest weight). The design smartness will be also awarded.

THREE CATEGORIES will be considered: 1 Highest value of the ratio load/weight (better efficiency P/p) 2 Highest supported load without considering the structure weight (P) 3 Design smartness (the panel will include internationally recognized professionals).

Competition categories A certificate of participation will be given to every participant in the contest, which will detail the activity performed explaining its equivalence to 1,5 ECTS credits (that will be recognized at least in the Degree of Architecture in the CEU San Pablo University).

Awards in each category Betting system

The winners will receive also a special diploma. If you are a student of the Degree in Architecture in the EPS USP CEU you could ask for the recognition of one of the competitions included in the degree courses.

Every participant can bet (even if you have not built any 3D structure). The betting system is on-line through the app ACME (designed to bet in CEU competitions). To be a bet participant you have to register by sending an e-mail to cperez.eps@ceu.es before February th 5 2018 at 18:00. The bets consist on predicting how the table-like 3D structures break. You choose the failure causes (one or more) among 8 given possibilities. 100 points are available to distribute among the 8 failure possibilities of each model. The winner will be the participant who gains more points as the addition of the ones assigned to correct answers in every bet. The bets winner will receive a special diploma. A certificate of participation will be given to every participant in the bet system. It will detail the activity performed explaining its equivalence to 0,5 ECTS credits (that will be recognized at least in the Degree of Architecture in the CEU San Pablo University).
