Djonno Bresser CEG’s nominee for TU Delft Best Graduate Award 2019

News - 04 November 2019 - Webredactie

Each academic year the Delft University Fund awards the prize for the Best Graduate of TU Delft. Each faculty is asked to nominate their best graduate. Djonno Breser has been nominated by CEGs faculty this year. The final announcement of the winner is on Tuesday 12 November.

Djonno has finished the master track Structural Engineering within the master programme Civil Engineering. During his thesis project, he worked on a simple but efficient model that can be used to understand complicated fracture behaviour of concrete structures and masonry. Such robust models are required for studies into subjects like masonry damage and collapse states for houses in Groningen that are subjected to induced seismicity, or the residual capacity of existing reinforced concrete bridges.
