Video Vault: 2007 NSSBC

Some key construction runs from the 
CSU Northridge NSSBC 2007.


Story behind the 2007 NSSBC.  It was an extremely close competition at the top.  I think NDSU and UC Davis were separated by something like 15 seconds in construction time for the Overall...what made it more enjoyable was that Wisconsin, and what many didn't know or don't remember, Lafayette College, were good enough to win it as well...but fell due to some mistakes.  Lakehead, Texas at Austin, SUNY Canton and Virginia Tech also performed very, very well.

Full 2007 NSSBC results:

(as with all these raw footage videos...I hold no responsibility to anything said in the background, lol)

Article on the new Bay Bridge

Howdy y'all!  The big news out west is the countdown to the opening of the revolutionary new Bay Bridge SAS design.  Going from Oakland to Treasure Island.  It will be quite the event in the engineering world.

Props to UC Davis Adjunct Assistant Professor Brian Maroney (shown below leading a rare tour in the anchorage zone) who is helping oversee current construction, and was integral in the seismic performance evaluation during the design phase for the new spans.

Hope Those Designs Are Going Well...

...must be weird not thinking about connection design...then again, whoever figures out how far you can stretch the connection "parameters" will probably end up being very successful!

2012 Highlight Video From Clemson

...first edit.

Updates From Madison

(8/11/2012) - It's just about that time of year again when the NSSBC Rules Comittee releases the new rules. We've been patiently waiting to see what the 2012-13 season has in store for us, and we think big changes are coming. In the meantime we've been making changes to the website and getting things sorted out for a busy school year ahead and trying to plan out another successful run at the elusive NSSBC championship.
