boeingLOGO
The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human nature. Many elaborate attempts have been made to explain this intricacy of nature. But for the part of the universe apparent to the eye, the classical ‘Laws of Motion’ suffice. One of the flagship events, it calls upon enthusiasts and engineers alike to design a RC motor powered aircraft , abandon their advanced technical knowledge and confront our challenge head on with nothing but the "Laws of Motion".
Team Size: Maximum of 4

  • The participants are required to bring their complete kits to IIT Kharagpur.
  • A pair of receiver and transmitter (Rx and Tx) will be provided by organizers, on prior request of the participants. The Tx-Rx pair has 4 or 6 channels. It can be used to control a maximum of 3 servo motors. Participants who wish to use Rx and Tx provided by us, will have to make provision for this receiver on their aircrafts. The participants can bring their own set of receiver and transmitter if they want.
  • All teams must be present before the commencement of the event. Teams will be disqualified if they do not turn up during the slot allotted to them.
  • Maximum Team size of 4 per team.
  • The teams must adhere to the spirit of healthy competition. The teams must not damage the opponent's aircraft in any way. Judges reserve the exclusive rights to disqualify any team indulging in misbehavior.
  • The aircraft would be checked for its safety before the commencement of the event and would be discarded if found unsafe for other participants and spectators.
  • The organizers reserve all rights to change any or all of the above rules. Change in any rule, if any, will be highlighted on the website.
  • All rounds of Laws of motion will be held at IIT Kharagpur during Kshitij.
  • Judges’ decisions on any matter will be considered final.
  • The participants need to send the video and pictures of their model by 4th January 2014 to the undersigned head keeping the subject as “Laws of Motion_Team Id”.
AIRCRAFT SPECIFICATION
  • An aircraft (model) is defined as a powered aircraft if it experiences exactly 4 forces during flight, namely lift, drag and weight (due to gravity) and thrust. Note: Parachutes and Para aircrafts do not qualify as aircrafts since they do not have lift. Also airships which contain gases lighter than air are not considered as aircrafts and hence will not be allowed.
  • Although there are no constraints on size and weight of the aircraft, it is advisable to keep the wingspan less than 1.75 meter and weight less than 900 grams.
  • The aircraft should be motor powered. Use of IC (Internal combustion) engine is not allowed.
  • The voltage of the battery used should not be more than 12V.
  • It is advisable to include a good landing gear system in the design and construction phase of your aircraft. Remember, taking-off and landing are very important phases of this competition.
  • The participants are free to use any materials of their choice. However the use of Balsa wood, Styrofoam or Sun Board is advisable. Balsa wood is light and easy to handle and to fabricate, hence is a good choice.
  • Participating teams are not allowed to use any electronic system that may augment the stability and control of the aircraft, like gyroscopes in an auto-pilot. For the purposes of the competition, no electronic performance enhancement should be used. Remember, the competition is a test of the design, construction and flight performance of your aircraft.
  • Participants must make all parts of the aircrafts themselves. Usage of Ready-to-Fly (RTF) and Almost-Ready-to-Fly (ARF) kits are strictly prohibited. However, the kit comprising of unassembled cut-pieces of balsa wood is allowed since it requires skilled work to be done upon it and one can assemble it to his or her advantage. Also use of readymade actuators/motors, remote controls is allowed. Note: Any team violating the above rule will be disqualified immediately.

INCOSE SEC; Systems Engineering Challenge - Conceptualize
INCOSE LOGO
"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge."
-George R.R. Martin

An idea may be the first step towards realising a dream, but turning that idea into a full system description is what really matters. A foundational background in any of the traditional engineering disciplines along with practical, real world experience goes a long way in defining a modern systems engineer. The INCOSE SE handbook has been the magnum opus as far as the world of systems engineering is concerned. INCOSE SEC seeks to familiarise the systems engineers of tomorrow with this handbook which will provide them insights into the customer environment. The participating teams would be required to develop a prototype system encompassing the various international standards and system tools for VSEs and submit a description of the same. The modern world has been home to a customer who is not only high in his demands but also wants to be taken by surprise every now and then. INCOSE SEC will surely inspire many young minds to devise systems which would not only meet their demands but also exceed their expectations.

Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) for Wind Turbine

Background:

CVT has been successfully used in automobile, farm machinery etc.
Transmissions of the CVT type are capable of varying continuously through an infinite number of gearing ratios in contrast to the discrete varying between a set number of specific gear ratios of a standard gearbox. A CVT-equipped wind turbine is more efficient than a conventional wind turbine at extracting the energy of the wind over wider range of air speed.

Problem: Design a CVT system for following design requirement.

Power output: 1 MW, Turbine Rotor Speed: 9 - 17 RPM, Generator speed: 1800 RPM, 4 pole Generator.
Generator can be permanent magnet synchronous or Squirrel cage induction generator.

Design for Extreme Torque, which can be upto 3 times the nominal Torque.

Weight Restriction: Conventional gear box weighs approximately ~10t for similar design. CVT design should be 25% lower weight.

Expected deliverables:
  1. Design concept with Sketch.
  2. Design calculations. Efficiency and toque curve over speed range.
  3. 3D CAD model.
A scale down 3D Prototype will be created for Top 3 entries.

Tremors; Autonomous Robotics Event - Robotix
It is said that nature’s fury, when unleashed, is unstoppable. There is no technology, no human invention that can contend with a sufficiently powerful natural phenomenon. Earthquakes are right up there on the list of such events. There is little anybody can do when the very ground beneath their feet gives way and structures crumble around them.
However, where we do have a role to play, and a crucial one at that, is in the aftermath. Acting quickly and effectively would be the difference between Life and Death for many of the affected people. With its autonomous event Tremors, the team at ROBOTIX 2014 invites participants to design and program a robot capable of detecting mini-vibrations on the floor as earthquakes, of navigating to the source and saving stranded victims from their doom. Not for the faint of heart is this!
Click here for detailed rules of the event.
Prizes worth Rs. 43,000 to be won.
Build an autonomous robot that can detect the mini earthquakes and evacuate the victims that are present in the affected region.

    Pyrolerra

    The motto of IIT Kharagpur is "Yoga Karmashu Kaushalam" . The motto literally translates to "Excellence in action is Yoga" essentially implying that doing your work well is (true) yoga. It is sourced to Sri Krishna's discourse to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita. This quote in its larger context of Gita urges man to acquire equanimity because such a soul endowed with the mind of equanimity allows him to shed the effects of his good and evil deeds in this world itself. Equanimity is the source of perfection in Karmic endeavors while leading to Salvation..
