Dr. Viktor Markelj to lecture at ASES Congress 2022

Ponting Bridges Director Dr. Viktor Markelj will give the keynote lecture at the 16th Congress of the Association of Structural Engineers of Serbia on September 30, 2022. He will visit the ASES Congress in Aranđelovac, Serbia.

Dr. Viktor Markelj will be talking about the design and construction of the new Pesnica viaduct, a 912-meter-long, relatively low, double-track railway viaduct. The viaduct is designed as a series of frame structures connected into an integral structure without bearings. This design concept allows the implementation of a continuous welded rail track (CWR) without expansion joints, with great advantages in terms of traffic safety, economy, sustainability and noise emissions.

His notable bridges include the Ada Bridge in Belgrade (2012), Puh Bridge in Ptuj (2007), Pedestrian drawbridge in Gdansk (2017), Bridge over Mura River (2003) and viaducts Lešnica (2007, 2010). A winner of many awards for his engineering expertise and a lecturer that passes the knowledge to future generations at University of Maribor.
