    D professor in the FIU Civil and Environmental Engineering Department The concrete canoe built by the USF ASCE chapter To cover the nearly 100 000 cost of putting on the conference FIU and UM student organizers garnered financial support from 18 sponsor organizations many of them companies with strong ties to the South Florida engineering community This conference is by far the biggest of the ASCE Regional conferences so our small chapter had to put in a tremendous amount of effort to make it work says Felipe Cifelli Whereas some regions may only have six or 10 universities attending and competing only in one or two major competitions the southeast region had 25 universities competing in 15 competitions Among the many conference activities were traditional ASCE competitions including the Steel Bridge challenge Balsa Tower building contest and Concrete Canoe competition and a newcomer event that showcased FIU s preeminent Wall of Wind WOW research facility FAU students with the mitigation solution they tested in the Wall of Wind challenge The Wall of Wind Mitigation Challenge was a brand new competition introduced exclusively to the 2013 ASCE Southeast Student Conference The event made use of the state of the art 12 fan WOW hurricane simulator to familiarize students with the basics of wind hazard mitigation Each competing student team was tasked with creating a mitigation solution to improve a building s aerodynamic performance Student designed solutions were tested on their ability to prevent gravel on structures roofs from being blown away by hurricane force winds The victor of the Wall of Wind challenge also turned out to be the big winner overall the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez whose team was honored with a trophy at the closing awards ceremony on Saturday March 16 at Jungle Island For the full conference rankings click here Congratulations to the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez on winning at the largest ASCE student conference We thank the FIU ASCE student chapter for your excellent work planning organizing and executing such a huge successful event in partnership with the University of Miami ASCE chapter Share this Click to email this to a friend Opens in new window Share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on LinkedIn Opens in new window Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Tumblr Opens in new window Click to share on Pinterest Opens in new window Click to share on Reddit Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related roy on Apr 23 2013 No Comments Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Testing Inquiries Please contact us with your questions about testing opportunities at the Wall of Wind Wall of Wind Research and Testing Facility Florida International University FIU Engineering Center Operations and Control Center 10555 West Flagler Street Miami
