A presentation on how data-driven fatigue assessments can be used to maximise the energy production of offshore wind farms has won this year's ICE Emerging Engineers award.
Ana Vega Kurson, from the South West, delivered her winning presentation at the live-streamed, online award final today.
She fought off competition from Tereza Kleckova (Wales), who talked about bridge dynamics to moving loads, and Jordon Gask (South East England), who presented on the use of Monte Carlo Simulation to estimate the probability of encountering and detecting unexploded bombs during construction activities.
Kurson was awarded with a cash prize and an Institution Medal for her efforts.
