Dr Murray Clarke is Director of Structural Engineering at Dematic, a global engineering company that designs, builds and supports logistics solutions that optimise material and information flow. After completing his PhD at the University of Sydney, Murray joined the academic staff to carry out teaching and research into steel structures, also at the University of Sydney. During this time he published widely in the field of advanced structural analysis and design of steel structures. Murray moved to Dematic in 1999 to initiate the core discipline of structural engineering in that organisation. The main fields of Murray’s current work include the design of storage racking and associated steel structures such as mezzanine floors to support Dematic’s automated systems projects across the Asia Pacific region. Storage racks range in height from a few metres to more than 40 m and make extensive use of cold-formed steel. In his current role, Murray has been fortunate to blend his academic interests with practical design and he maintains an active role in developing automated design tools for rapid and precise design of racking structures. Murray was a member of Standards Australia committee BD/62 responsible for developing AS 4084-2012 _Steel Storage Racking_ and is also a registered technical engineer with the European Racking Federation, a European industry body that develops design codes for the storage equipment industry in Europe
