PCI Big Beam Contest

PCI Big Beam Contest

The UW Milwaukee teams recently finished their design for the 2016 PCI Big Beam Contest. Spancrete sponsored two teams this year under the direction of Jian Zhao, Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at UW Milwaukee. Students were on hand to watch the set up and pour of their beams at Spancrete’s manufacturing facility in Valders, WI.

The objective of the PCI Big Beam Contest is for teams of students to fabricate and test a precast, pre-stressed beam with the help of a local precast PCI member.
