STEEL BRIDGE

The Steel Bridge Team consists of current ASCE members who design and construct a scale size bridge entirely from structural steel. The rules of the design and construction are provided by the National ASCE organization. These rules provide a fictitious problem statement under which the bridge must be built. The rules dictate the required size of the bridge as well as member types and sizes, loading requirements, and clearances. Steel Bridge meets in the fall and spring semesters for design and construction meetings. Each spring, the students involved compete in a regional ASCE competition against other Mid-Atlantic schools. The competition criteria include construction time, bridge weight, and aesthetics. The winners of the regional competition will continue on to a national competition, also held in the spring.
