Structural Engineering (SE) Exam Adopted Design Standards – Effective April 2014
NCEES updated the structural engineering (SE) design standards in October 2013. Beginning in April 2014, the exam will reference the 6th edition of AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specification, updated from 5th edition.
Though not all of PPI's Structural Engineering (SE) products reflect the adopted editions of these design standards, in most cases the principles change very little. While specific procedures, equations, or values may change gradually from one edition of a design or reference standard to the next, PPI’s books continue to provide an appropriate overview of the design concepts presented.
