This report describes a static framework validation challenge problem used in the SANDIA Validation Challenge Workshop, May 21–23, 2006. The challenge problem has clear engineering character, is simple to state and allows many different approaches to solve it. The regulatory assessment problem is to estimate the probability of a given vertical displacement to exceed a prescribed threshold.
