DESCRIPTION:

“Concrete is the second most consumed product on Earth, after water.” So, it is the privilege of us as a Civil Engineer to make it reach even higher through renovation. EDIFICE-2K17 provides you the best platform to validate your expertise in concrete. Avail the opportunity to bring forth the design quotient in you to renovate the present concrete world.

PROBLEM STATEMENT:

Design M70 grade concrete mix and report the 7 days compressive strength using three cubes of size 100mm x 100mm x100mm. Mineral admixtures and superplasticisers can be used. The slump value should be reported between 50mm to 75mm. Strictly follow the IS code requirements for mix proportioning and its quantities.

Judging criteria and casting procedure has been announced! scroll down to know it!

RULES:

The contestants are required to produce concrete cubes as per the problem statement:

  1. Each team must consist of not less than two and not more than four students of the same college.
  2. Teams participating in the event should submit the mix design for Problem Statement to the mail edif2k17@gmail.com in the proposed format:

Subject: <SMEATON’S CUBE >

Content:

<Name of the participants with year and branch of study and also specify the team head>

<Edifice registration ID of all participants>

<Name of the institution with address>

<Contact details of the team head>

<Scanned copies of mix design sheet in jpeg image format or .pdf format >

Last date for submission of mix design: 25.07.2017

Complete Mix design steps done based on IS: 10262:2009 with Mix proportion ratio at last.

  1. Selected teams must cast three concrete cubes of dimensions 100mm×100mm×100mm based on the mix design submitted.
  2. The time of curing is 7 days.
  3. The 7 day strength of the cubes will be tested. The average of the three cube strength will only be considered as the strength of the concrete.
  4. Maximum 15% variation is allowed in the strength and weight of individual cubes.
  5. The participants are free to use any type of admixtures but use of fiber (reinforcement) is strictly prohibited.
  6. A detailed report with mix design sheet attested by respective Head of the department should be submitted in hardcopy prior to the commencement of the event.
  7. Date of casting and college name in short form should be painted above all the cubes.
  8. Each participant in the team should be able to clearly explain the mix design sheet at the spot.

Note: Cube testing will be on 2nd August, 2017. So, selected teams must cast their cubes as soon as the intimation is made.

JUDGING CRITERIA:

While casting the cube , after tamping the first layer ,a 2*3 cm metal sheet must be placed after the first layer before the addition of the subsequent layers. After testing , if the metal sheet is not found to be present , the involved team will be disqualified

NOTE: It is duty of students to keep updated about the information posted in the website. There can be any changes in the above mentioned things. So, keep yourself updated.

Disclaimer: It is mandatory that you should design for the prescribed strength. Don’t imagine that high strength will fetch you the award. Your strength should be within the limits of 7 day strength of prescribed grade. If not, the team will not be considered for judgement.

But when it comes to repairing or rehabilitating a distressed structure, it is a sensitive as well as a precarious task for an engineer! Do you have guts to face such a situation?? EDIFICE-2K17 paves a way for you to bring up your ingenious techniques to restore a wrecking structure. Come out with your own case study to enlighten the crowd with your innovative ideas and thoughts.

RULES:

 FORMAT:

          For example, you can take “Moulivakkam 11 storey building” in chennai that has been collapsed in recent time. The reason for the collapse is foundation settlement. If you have any engineering solutions to restore that structure without any destruction, you can present it.

Send a detailed abstract of 1000 words with photograph attachments of the distressed structure about your case study to edif2k17@gmail.com in the following format.

Abstract should contain:( in .doc or .pdf file)

  1.  Description about the structure namely type of structure, location of structure, materials used in the structure, year of construction, etc., 
  2. Type of Distress in that structure with photographs.( symptoms and causes should also be mentioned)
