Ice load on bridge piers focus of grad research

Posted: Thursday, Feb 20th, 2014

SDSU graduate student Brittney Ahrenstorff stands by a measuring device installed on a pier of the southbound I-29 bridge south of Brookings after it was installed in fall 2012. Her research is being conducted through the Mountain-Plains Consortium at SDSU.

BROOKINGS Drivers are only concerned if there is ice on the bridge, but an SDSU graduate student has been awarded for her work on studying ice under the bridge.

Brittney Ahrenstorff, a graduate student in the civil and environmental engineering program, was named the Outstanding Graduate Student of the Year for 2013 for the Mountain-Plains Consortium, a university transportation center formed by eight universities stretching from Utah to North Dakota.

She and winners from other regions received their honors at a banquet in Washington, D.C., Jan. 11.
