Daniel Peel (centre) of Devonport Royal Docks scooped the top prize in the Graduates & Students National Papers Competition, held at the ICE last week. His paper, 'The strengthening of cast iron beams using carbon fibre', held off challenges from (left to right) Susannah Stewart, Martin Simpson, Simon Young and Daniel Anstice. Chairman of the judges David Hattersley praised all the papers, but said Peel's understanding of the subject and presentation skills were outstanding. He wins £300 and will be presented with his medal at the ICE's annual awards ceremony on 7 November.
