Seismic Design is one of the teams in the Society of Civil and Structural
Engineering (SCSE), whose objective is to design, construct, and analyze
a five foot balsa wood tower and then compete in the Earthquake
Engineering Research Institute's (EERI) Undergraduate Seismic Design
Competition. UCSD's Seismic Design Team has been participating in the
Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition for the past seven years. The
extensive support from our sponsors in the previous years has allowed our
team to extend and refine our analysis techniques, making us incredibly
successful in recent competitions, placing 5th in 2009, 1st in 2010, 11th
in 2011, and 8th in 2014.
2015 fall quarter meetings start at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays from October 13th
throughout the rest of the quarter in SME 145.
