Concrete is a widely used material in the field of civil engineering – both, at the construction sites and for research purposes. As we all know, a slight variation in the concrete mix can produce a significant change in the strengths, setting period and other properties of concrete. We would like to exploit this unique property of concrete and this gives rise to our event, MORTAR MASTER, in Pragyan 2015.

The objective of the event is to design and produce concrete blocks of the least weight for a specified strength and size that would be mentioned in the problem statement. Quite simple isn’t it ? But, as an engineer, one has to be versatile. So, the teams to prepare a proper design mix report, cast cubes of impeccable finish and present a briefing of their work to the judges will be declared the ‘Mortar Masters’ at the end of the event !

(P.S. : Don’t ask us why it isn’t Concrete Master; we just wanted our event name to sound less ‘coarse’ ! )


Prizes worth INR 25,000
