It is pivotal that every civil engineer master the science of concrete technology. An old saying states that broken stone, sand and cement make good concrete, but a different proportion of the same ingredients can make a bad concrete. The quality of end product depends on the mortar master. A mortar master knows the right technique for achieving a strong, durable and economic method of making concrete.

The contestants are required to produce concrete blocks as per the problem statement. The participants are allowed to add any material of their choice and requirements to acquire the strength. The evaluation will be based on four parameters: the strength to weight ratio, cost, aesthetic appeal and the innovation in the mix design report.

The owner of the best concrete cube will be declared as the “MORTAR MASTER”.

Schedule : 10 am to 2 pm -- March 3, 2017.
