CONCRETE CANOE


OBJECTIVE OF CONCRETE CANOE :

Advanced materials (carbon fibers, glass fibers, polystyrene, rubber, admixtures, glass microspheres, etc.) are used to build light-weight and high-strength concrete. The construction procedure also plays a vital role in achieving the desired structural/material properties and stability/safety of the canoe.

It is really a thrilling experience to design and build and concrete canoe and finally row it in water, which a layman would find very hard to believe. This event will provide a platform for the students to showcase and expand their engineering and interpersonal skills.Wireless remote Concrete Canoe race will be conducted on the event day.

  • Each team shall have a 4 persons.
  • The canoe must be designed by a team of bonafide students pursuing Civil program at any AICTE approved University/Engineering College in India.
  • If required, the mould for casting the canoe can be prepared by professionals other than the team members. All other works (design, construction, testing, etc.) must be performed by the team members.
  • The length of your canoe must be 0.45m with tolerance of 5mm, width and depth not more than 0.15m.
  • Team Description Paper (TDP) should be emailed to the event email will revealed soon. Based on TDP, teams will be short listed.
  • One copy of report should be emailed to the event email id and participants should carry one hardcopy of the same on the day of evaluation.

MATERIALS SELECTION

  • Commercially available pre-packaged or pre-mixed concrete, mortar, or grout cannot be used.
  • The minimum amount of ordinary Portland cement should be 30% (by weight) of the total weight of the Cementitious/binder materials.
  • Fly ash, slag, silica fume, metakaolin, and other commercially available supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) can be used as mineral admixtures.
  • Commercially available chemical admixtures (super plasticizers, retarders, etc.) can be used. However, waterproofing agents should not be used.
  • The volume of fine aggregates must be more than 25% of the total volume of the concrete. Natural and/or artificial materials can be used as fine aggregates to attain certain desired properties.

Participating teams will submit Team Description Paper (TDP) and a final report. These will be evaluated and considered for selecting the winners. All the reports must use A4 size papers. If required, a maximum of one A3size paper with drawings can be used. Each report must be submitted in the form of ONE PDF file or a bound hardcopy. All the reports must follow the following formats: Times NewRoman; 12 point size; 1 inch margin on all sides; 1.15 inch spacing between the lines. This is to ensurethat all the teams get equal amount of space for reporting.

ART OF CONCRETE

Concrete is the material of choice for architects and engineers —mostly because it is moldable, strong, and cost-efficient. But concrete is also beautiful. The Art of Concrete Student Competition challenges students to explore the artistic nature of concrete and display its many varieties of form, function, and beauty.

THE CHALLENGE

To produce a work of art that exemplifies the central theme—The Art of Concrete. Entries may be in the form of sculptures, paintings, drawings, photographs, or scale models. Each entry must not exceed 100 cm in any dimension, and must be able to be readily displayed without significant support. A maximum weight of 50 kg will be enforced.

PARTICIPANTS

  • 1. Participants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.
  • 2. A team is limited to four individuals. A university may register up to three teams. A student may not be a member of more than one team. Each team may submit one entry.
  • 3. Each team must sign and submit a Statement of Originality certifying that the work of art is their original work.

Prizes (Cimenterie Nationale Awards)

Students with prize will receive cash prizes and certificates of recognition, and will be recognized in Future Concrete 2018 Conference.

JUDGING

  • Three judges will be appointed by the ACI India Chapter and KSA.
  • Judges may include artists, architects, or engineers.
  • The judges will determine whether or not the rules have been followed by each participant and will judge the work of art for its merit, based on the following categories:
No Category Points
1 Originality 20
2 Difficulty 20
3 Theme Communication 20
4 Technique 20
5 Creativity 15
6 Incorporation of Sustainability 5
Total 100

EVALUATION

  • Each selected entry will be displayed in the exhibit area at the CON’CLASH 2018 from 8:00 a.m. on February 16 2018.
  • Each Event participant will be able to vote for their favorite work of art. Only one vote per Event attendee will be counted.
  • Voting by conference participants closes on at 12:00 p.m. Votes will be tallied and the percentage of the popular vote will be assessed for each entry.
  • Each entry’s final score will equal the total judge points (maximum of 300) plus the percentage of the popular vote (maximum of 100). Winners will be the participants with the three highest final scores.
  • Winners will be announced at valedictory function.
