On this episode, I am pleased to welcome Tim Kenerson of AIT Bridges. AIT is an engineering and manufacturing company that supplies advanced composite materials for bridges while providing low-cost solutions to an aging infrastructure industry.
On this episode, we'll be discussing the addition of a composite tub girder to its composite bridge system offering.
The new technology has been developed in cooperation with The University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center. The tub girder (named as such as its wooden mold is shaped like a bathtub) can now be used for about 80 percent of bridges around the US and has many advantages over conventional steel and concrete girders. They are resistant to corrosion and can be manufactured to be as strong as needed.
Ken is the Senior Design Engineer at AIT and has been with the company for almost 7 years. He coordinates with Consultant Engineers and Owners on the project design process and manages the engineering team who works together to bring the project from concept to contract.
