Speaker : Dave Cousins
Dave Cousins has been a bridge engineer for 15 years working in a variety of roles including: design, fabrication, installation, assessment and demolition for a number of firms. Research into the behaviour of reinforced concrete deck hinge joints early in his career, set a pattern for his interest in finding deficiencies and resolving the causes. Positions have taken him across the world to find steel fatigue problems and faulty constructions. His passion is in deteriorated structures and for the past 3 years he has concentrated solely on monitoring and non-destructive testing applied to bridge structures.
