Daniel P T Ekström

Doktorand at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering

Daniel Ekström is an industrial doctoral student at the Division of Structural Engineering, in the research group Concrete Structures, at Chalmers. The purpose of his current research project focuses is to develop and make bridge construction more effective. Recent advancements in important fields such as: materials science and technology, design and analysis methods, production techniques, as well as the rapid development in information and communication technology, have resulted in a vast potential to rationalise the construction process. In addition, these advancements raise the potential to renew the role of the structural engineer as well as the structural design process in order to reach a construction process that is effective and sustainable.
