Design three cement concrete cubes of 100mm size. Teams of average compressive strength of their three cement concrete cubes greater than 45 Mpa (Take note that the value is for average compressive strength) will be considered satisfying the eligibility criteria. Maximum weight of each cube will 2.5 kgs with a permissible error of plus or minus 10%, suitable penalty will be given for the teams who fail to follow the above constraints.
The Contestants will be judged on the following points:
1. Compressive strength (45 Mpa)& least weight:
Teams with average compressive strength of their cement concrete cubes greater than 45Mpa will be considered satisfying the eligibility criteria. Maximum weight of each cube should be 2.5kg with permissible error of 10% give or take.
The teams satisfying both the criteria will qualify for the oral round. In case the number of teams falling within this range is low, then the top six teams with maximumRATIO of,compressive strength by weightwill be considered for the next round.
The next section concerns only those teams that qualify for the oral round.
A total of 20 marks will be awarded for the average weight of cement concrete cubes. A perfect 20 will be awarded for least average weight (>45 Mpa). The other teams will be given scores in relative to the highest score achieved.
2. Design report:
The design report to be submitted online will carry 20 marks, to be awarded by the judge. Additional weightage will be given for economical and eco-friendly design. Contestants are advised to stick with the design format provided in the Pragyan website.
3. Oral briefing:
The oral presentation will be conducted by our senior faculty member and judge Prof. Dr.C.Natarajanwho will also quiz the team members on the submitted design report. This section will carry a total of 20 marks.
