Internship: Structural Engineering
Locatie: Capelle, Heerenveen, Almere
We are looking for interns!
'Eager to learn, ambitions, looking for a change to develop yourself in your field of expertise? At Antea Group you will get the opportunity and the freedom to grow and proof yourself in a challenging environment! It will be an educational experience and a good start of your career.'
The Dutch infrastructure network is a high-quality civil engineering network, which is kept up to date with thorough maintenance programs. However, some of the infrastructure dates back to the mid 1900's and is about to reach (or has reached) the end of its design life. This is also the case for a large number of (movable) steel bridges. To decide what to do with these old bridges, whether it is to replace or to maintain, an engineering analysis is performed. One of which is a fatigue analysis.
Recent insights in the loading for fatigue analysis have led to an alternative approach to analyse stress effects in steel bridge decks, which will be implemented in the infrastructure market soon. In this internship you will focus on this new modelling approach and implement the approach for orthotropic bridge decks into our operation procedure, using Python code. To achieve an optimal technical implementation using coding, a research question like the examples below can be considered:
- In what way can the new fatigue analysis method be implemented efficiently in the current working method of Antea Group B.V.?
- Is the new approach generally applicable for each point of interest (detail) in the deck, or is there a dependency?
- In what way and for what details does the new fatigue analysis method influence the design life of structures?
The internship will provide you with the opportunity to gain practical experience within one of the largest engineering consultancies nationwide. It will be a chance to apply and demonstrate your engineering skills and utilise your academic skills in a practical problem.
