DESCRIBE THE EVENT, TRY TO INCLUDE HOW IT RELATES TO YOUR MISSION OR VALUES
The UCSD Seismic Design Team competes in the annual Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition hosted by the EERI Student Leadership Council. This year the competition will take place in Portland, Oregon from March 7th to March 10th. In order to compete the teams must design and construct a 5-ft tall balsa wood tower that models a 29 story building, while abiding by the competition rules. Teams are scored on how cost-effective their towers are built, how the towers perform under three simulated ground motion tests on a shake table, and how the analysis calculations and predictions compare to the actual performance of the tower. Other categories such as architecture of the tower, presentation, and poster created for the competition are scored and ranked separately from the main scoring criteria.
