Lecture at Lima's University San Ignacio de Loyola

Last 27th April, Arenas & Asociados' technical manager, Guillermo Capellán, gave a lecture at the Engineering Faculty of the University San Ignacio de Loyola (Lima, Peru).

"Caminos en el Aire: Líneas de Verdad" (Roads in the Air: Truth Lines), made a tour through the most iconic bridges and engineers of History, from Caio Julio Lacer and its impressive Puente de Alcántara, to our contemporaries Michel Virlogeux or Jiri Strasky. Then it delves into "the way of loads", to explain the different structural types: the arch and its work by form; its antithesis, the cable; to end with the beam. Harmonizing the theory with multiple examples developed from Arenas & Asociados.

The closure, was made by a detailed description of Chilina Bridge (Arequipa), the largest built to date in Peru, and the future vehicular and pedestrian Lindley Bridge, which will soon cross the South Panamerican Highway.
