The team described the analysis methods used for structural analysis and mentioned the software employed to obtain critical parameters. They elaborated on their pre-tensioning force and said that they tested their reinforcement scheme to insure that it met the design loads.
Then the team outlined the test methods employed to evaluate the reinforcement as well as their composite design. They mentioned that the unit weight of their section was lower than last year.
Construction came next. The team described how they constructed their form and concrete canoe. Curing techniques were described and the team explained how thermal methods were employed to monitor the curing process.
