Research and Development of Ultra-portable Modulus Structures

Canada is considered to be one of the leading nations in nature conservation. Greenheart specializes in the design and construction of aerial trails. University of British Columbia (UBC) is a world renowned institute for structural engineering research. This Mitacs Intern Program is intended to create a robust research program that allows UBC researchers to collaborate with Greenheart to design ultra-portable, reconfigurable and lightweight structures which can be used for education, enjoyment, promotion and preservation of our environment. The program will consist of extensive array of analytical simulations, experimental testing and design optimizations. Upon successful implementation of the research, the program will train multiple highly qualified personnel with vital scientific and business skills that will further strengthen Canada’s position in pioneering engineering research and continue Canada’s leadership in nature conservation.
