PCI Big Beam Competition

The PCI Student Education Committee is inviting entries from students to participate in the Engineering Student Design (Big Beam) Competition for the 2017-18 academic year. Each student team must work with a PCI Producer Member to build a precast/prestressed concrete beam that is 22 ft long. The beams will be tested and prizes awarded for best performance in the stated areas. Students must discuss both the structural design and the concrete mixture proportions for the beam.

The contest begins August 15, 2017, and ends June 15, 2018. All beams must be fabricated and tested within this time frame. Results are due by June 15, 2018, at PCI Headquarters. The winning team will be recognized at the 2018 PCI Committee Days and Membership
Conference in Chicago, Ill.
