    Competition Location: Lawlor Events Center


    The mission of the ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC) 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 SSBC increases awareness of real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints,

    material properties, strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety,

    aesthetics, and cost. Success in inter-collegiate competition requires effective teamwork and

    project management. Future engineers are stimulated to innovate, practice professionalism,

    and use structural steel efficiently.


    The 2016 Steel Bridge Competition rules have been posted! Below is a link to the 2016 National

    Steel Bridge Competition Rules.

    The National Competition was established and endowed in 1939 by Daniel W. Mead,

    Hon.M.ASCE, a Society Past-President. The contest provides an opportunity for alert young civil

    engineers to further their professional development and gain national attention.


    The National Student Daniel W. Mead Competition Rules have been published at the website

    located below:

    The same topic and rules will be applied to the paper at the Mid Pacific Conference as seen on
