2017 CNSBC Rules and Regulation.pdf
WELCOME AND DISCLAIMERS
The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and the Canadian Institute of Steel
Construction (CISC) support and encourage the equitable opportunity for participation in
the Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition (CNSBC) by all interested and eligible
individuals without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation,
nationality, or physical challenges. Bridge teams should be inclusive, open, and fair to
all interested and eligible participants. The goal of this competition is to give to
Canadian civil engineering students an opportunity to have a first hands-on experience
during their curriculum.
CNSBC committee would like to thank the American Institute of Steel Construction
(AISC) as well as the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for the use of the
AISC/ASCE National Student Steel Bridge Competition (NSSBC) rules as a baseline for
these rules. Please note that the Imperial system was used in this document to facilitate
reading of teams participating to both American and Canadian competitions.
We will see you in May 2017 for the second edition at Laval University in Quebec City,
