The event starts with a workshop on truss design, preparation of structural drawing and fabrication sketches followed by the design statement. The students have to design the truss STAAD-Pro software for given span & loads and to prepare structural drawing and fabrication sketches (AutoCAD). Once the fabrication sketches are done, they need to fabricate and erect the truss. The testing of truss will be done in the Structural
Engineering lab. Evaluation includes maximum load carrying capacity, geometry, fabrication tolerance, etc.
Team Maximum of 3 per team (at least one male student is a must)
Date: 2.00 pm, 19-03-2020 to 5.00 pm, 20-03-2020
Registration fee: Rs. 1500 per team.
Accommodation will be provided on payment basis. Kindly contact the coordinators for the accommodation arrangements.
