PARTICIPATE IN SEI TRIAL DESIGN PROBLEM – Live Load Design
Help improve codes and standards--submit your solution by July 31, and be entered in a drawing for an SEI necktie or scarf.
SEI Trial Design Problems are investigations into how structural engineers interpret code provisions. The purpose is to evaluate if practicing engineers are able to accurately understand and consistently implement the current code as well as possible future code provisions. The exercise is designed to take about an hour. Solutions are anonymous in the publication of results which are summarized and communicated to the respective standards committees. This problem is representative of a common engineering task that is performed in structural engineering offices on a routine basis.
View the SEI Trial Design Problem, submit your solution by July 31, and
encourage your colleagues to participate. Thank you for your input to improve codes and standards!
