Abstract : This document includes material assembled as a completion report of the Corps of Engineers Structural Engineering Conference (CESEC 91) held in St. Johns County, FL, 8-12 July 1992. Under this cover are the agenda of the conference, abstracts and papers presented, a description of the exhibits, posters and demonstrations displayed, a list of attendees, and an evaluation of the conference by the participants. The 5-day conference included the presentation of 112 papers, 32 visual displays, six training sessions and two leadership forums on the state-of-the-practice in structural engineering within the Corps of Engineers and other agencies in attendance. The presentations were given as formal talks or informally through visual displays and demonstrations. A challenge workshop was conducted one afternoon where a select group of structural engineers were presented with two emergency situations which could likely occur. These teams of engineers were asked to provide an immediate assessment of the situations and both a short-term and long-term solution to the problems. Leadership forums were conducted for chiefs of structural design from each office for both military and civil works areas.
