Elevation in the temperature of the cold sink (Process fluid) initially given at room temperature.
Heat transfer area. Will be calculated on the day of the competition by the organizers.
Time taken for the entire process.
Originality and innovation in design.
Volume loss (least)..
On spot problem solving skills.
The third thermal fluid (chemical X) will be provided on the day of the competition. The maximum amount of the third fluid that will be provided is 1 litre. Participants who use less than the maximum amount will be awarded extra points. The lesser the amount of third fluid used, the more will be the extra points that are awarded. For the convenience of the participants, it can be assumed that the third fluid (Chemical X) has properties (viscosity, density, etc.) similar to that of water. This assumption is for design purposes only (the thirdfluid may or may not be water).
