"Progress Through Knowledge" Welcome to The American Concrete Institute San Diego Chapter
In 1905, concerned concrete enthusiasts set out with a mission to develop a means for making concrete a safe usable, durable material. The result of their determination was the formation of the American Concrete Institute. Chartered as a technical society, the not-for-profit
ACI emerged with a goal of guiding and assisting its members and the general public by disseminating information on concrete.

Help Support The Concrete Canoe Teams from UCSD & SDSU
To Our Valued Sponsor,
The UC San Diego Concrete Canoe Team of the
Society of Civil and Structural Engineers (SCSE) requests your assistance as we
prepare for the 2013 Pacific Southwest Conference (PSWC), held by the American
Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The conference will be co-hosted by the
University of Southern California and Loyola Marymount University from April
4-6, 2013. At this year’s PSWC, the 2012 UCSD-SCSE Concrete Canoe Team entered
the competition with its second pre-stressed canoe. With an improved
construction method, featuring a male-female mold structure and an advanced
pre-stressing system, the team was able to fabricate its strongest and lightest
canoe in its ten-year history. After a successful performance at the 2012 PSWC,
placing 8th out of 16 teams, the 2013 Concrete Canoe Team is ambitious to
continue the team’s success and qualify for Nationals.
The Concrete Canoe
Competition encourages students to experience engineering innovation and project
management at its best. We are challenged to plan, design, fabricate, and refine
a 20-foot-long canoe. Working together as an innovative team of motivated UCSD
students, we manufacture an efficient product to compete with our peers at the
annual conference. We learn firsthand the importance of education, team
coordination, and leadership. Not only do these qualities and skills illuminate
students’ academic experiences, but they are vital to implement in the
engineering field and contribute to our employers’ future success.
2012-2013 Concrete Canoe Team kindly asks for your support to achieve our goals
of developing a strong and lightweight mix, pursuing a new, efficient
construction method, enhancing aesthetics, and excelling our paddlers’
performance and techniques. Any material donations, technical support, and/or
monetary sponsorship are greatly appreciated. All donations are 100% tax
deductible. Your support will benefit the team’s project as shown on the
attached sponsorship form.
On behalf of the members of the 2012-2013
UCSD-SCSE Concrete Canoe Team, thank you for your time and consideration. If
there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Jennifer Sexton
at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit our website at http://www.scse.ucsd.edu for more information.
