Hugh Turtle Prize - Mark Coughlin

SEP, 09, 2021

Mark recently won the Hugh Turtle Prize for Best Performance Among MEng Students in his Project Dissertation. In context, when bridges are subject to live loads, such as vehicles passing over them, beams deflect downwards resulting in displacement. Mark’s research involved the development of a computer vision algorithm to remotely measure this type of dynamic displacement to sub-millimetre accuracy using a Go-Pro action camera. These dynamic displacement results are essential within the wider Structural Health Monitoring sector to ensure the condition of the structure is safe.

We are celebrating International Women in Engineering Day 2021! Design ID actively support our employees, regardless of gender and provide equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities. Whilst the gender pay gap in the construction industry is 18%, we are proud to declare at Design ID that a gender pay gap does not exist - salaries per role are equal, with employees being measured by their ability, not their gender. Did you know that only 6% of Chartered Members of the Institution of Structural Engineers are female? Currently in Design ID 25% of our MIStructE staff are female. We are always aiming for balance; whilst the UK average for female engineers is 12%, we are currently at 30% and continuously improve on this. Our female engineers are in influential positions on the ICE and IStructE committees and tutor at local Universities, acting as role models for current and future engineers. #INWED21
