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.
