5OBC Committee 
SEI of ASCE, San Francisco Chapter

The San Francisco Chapter for the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), is pleased to host the 5th Orthotropic Bridge Conference (5OBC) as a joint collaboration between industry and academia. The San Francisco Chapter for SEI of ASCE and Santa Clara University are partnering for the 5OBC.

Recognizing orthotropic bridges are a specialized area within bridge engineering, the Sacramento Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Capital Branch, initiated the first orthotropic bridge conference in 2004 so all engineers around the world could share their ideas, insights and projects.

Since 2004, the Capital Branch of the ASCE Sacramento Section conducted the second (2008), and third (2013) conferences.  The 2004, 2008, and 2013 conferences attracted many notable bridge engineers from across the USA and more than 11 countries and were well received.In 2015, the Capital Branch moved the 4th OBC outside of the USA, partnering with China Bridge Magazine.
