The Steel Bridge team designs and fabricates a 20-foot long bridge that can carry 2500 pounds and be constructed from pieces in less than half an hour.
GeoWall is a geotechnical engineering design competition that challenges students to create a mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall using kraft paper, capable of withstanding 400+ pounds of soil pressure. Teams are required to produce a model that is both well-built and visually appealing. Teams from different schools compete to determine the fastest, strongest, and most cost-effective design.
We spend the first semester designing and making concrete mixes as well as starting to prepare the mold for the canoe. Second semester is spent preparing for pour-day, where we cast concrete onto the canoe mold. This day is the most important for our team, and everyone in the organization gets involved. After this day and the paddling practices throughout the year, we go to PSWS to compete!
Our team consists of undergraduate engineering students who will be planning, designing, fabricating and building an aesthetic 2-story wood light-framed building. We will be calculating a structurally durable building incorporating the Allowable Stress Design Method, creating structural drawings, and more.
The objective of the Environmental Design competition is to design a system that can remove a selection of pre-selected contaminants normally present in wastewater (no poop tho!) using physical and chemical treatments (with no reliance on a power grid for operation).
Combining transportation engineering with traffic management and safety, this team looks at comprehensive street data to formulate effective solutions and improvements through engineering analysis. Utilizing drafting software like AutoCAD Civil 3D, this team visually presents their proposed solutions and renderings.
