Welcome to the 2010-2011 ASCE Steel Bridge Team webpage!
         Congradulations !!! Northern Arizona University Steel  Bridge Team achieved 1st place in the display category of the steel bridge competition at the Pacific Southwest Conference 2010 - 2011. The stiffness of our bridge ranked  5th among 19 universities.
The ASCE/AISC steel bridge competition is a student competition which offers real world engineering in
a student environment and  is sponsered by  American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Students from different regional universities get together to complete and share in the excitement of Civil Engineering.  The competition is principally sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)  and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) with additional sponsorship sponosored by the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), Steel Structures Education Foundation (SSEF), National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA), Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) etc. It is an exciting event for every civil engineering student who participates in the ASCE conference.

            The steel bridge will be judged in the following categories: Display, Construction speed, Construction economy , Lightness, Stiffness, Structural efficiency. The overall winner has the lowest score from the construction economy and structural efficiency categories.

            The theme for this year's steel bridge is Hephaestus. Hephaestus is the Greek God of Craftsmenship and the team's bridge.  The website will be updated throughout the design and building process of the steel bridge. The navigation bar includes links to home, steel team members, PSWC, schedules and costs, design drawings, sponsors and donors, and contact information.

            The team will like to thank Mayorga's Welding and Norfab Steel Fabrication both of  whom are located
in Flagstaff, AZ.  The team would also like to thank Gecko Steel Truss, Ron's Signs, Page Steel, other private donors, and Northern Arizona University 98C Engineering Fabrication Workshop, especially our technical advisor Thomas Nelson. All of the above people have made the steel bridge possible and we could not have completed this  project without their help and guidance.

            Please join us April 29th, 2011 at 9:00 am in the Du Bois Center (Agassiz Room) where we will be making a presentation for the UGRAD Design Symposium. We will also have a poster session from 3:00-4:30 pm. Other events and schedules can be downloaded from here.
