Abstract

Five projects related to the Panama Canal Expansion Program were completed over a three month period with the Panama Canal Authority. These projects focused on the ongoing Panama Canal Expansion Program by: designing ArcGIS maps of the annual survey and dredge work of the Canal; developing the Atlantic Bridge's maintenance plan; creating a hydraulic model and floodplain maps to predict downstream construction impacts; designing a BIM model for analysis of early stages of concrete construction; and designing simulations of concrete pours. The results of these projects were composed of recommendations to improve the workings of the Canal.
