Steel Bridge

Description:

The mission of the ASCE/AISC Steel Bridge Competition is to supplement the education of civil engineering students with a comprehensive, student-driven project experience from conception and design through fabrication, erection, and testing, culminating in a steel structure that meets client specifications and optimizes performance and economy. The Steel Bridge Competition increases awareness of real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints, material properties, strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety, ethics, and cost management. Success in inter-collegiate competition requires effective teamwork and project management. Future engineers are stimulated to innovate, practice professionalism, and use structural steel efficiently.

Surveying

Description:

Surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them, commonly practiced by licensed surveyors, and members of various building professions. Civil Engineering students will be expected to conduct a land survey such as those commonly practiced by licensed surveyors in an area chosen by the conference hosts.

 

Mead Paper

Concrete Bowling

Description:

The goal of this competition is to design and construct a concrete bowling ball that is practical, durable, and aesthetically pleasing.

 

Mystery Event

Description:

The objectives of this competition are to use the materials provided to you to accomplish the given task at hand, to build teamwork, encourage attention to detail, recognize and apply relevant analysis/design information, and most importantly, to have fun! The task will be given to you at the time of the competition, hence the “mystery.” The competition is open to any and all student members of ASCE in attendance. Students will only compete with other students from their respective ASCE student chapters. Structural analysis software is not necessary for this competition but may be helpful. At the start of the competition, you will be provided with a bag of materials and set of directions. You will be given a certain amount of time to complete the task.
