Thor On Castle

Description

Thor on castle is a live model making competition wherein the participants have to construct a tower of popsicle sticks to withstand gradual load.

General Rules:

  1. h/d ratio should be minimum 6.0.
  2. Final decision will on the basis of the above formula.
  3. Initial gradual load will be 750gm.
  4. Load increment will be 250gm after each testing.
  5. The top of the tower should be flat so that load can be place over it.
  6. In case of a tie, the crushing load value shall be considered for which the participating team shall have to give consent, in void of which the team agreeing for the same shall be considered as a winner.

NOTE:Rules are subject to last minute change. Contact corresponding coordinator(s) for further inquiries. Final Decision lies in hands of Coordinators and Judges. Participants have to abide the decision in all cases.

Evaluation Criteria:

The evaluation will be done on the basis of gradual load applied, h/d ratio and self-weight of the model. The tower will be judged on the basis of the factor calculated as per following formula :

Where,
h = height of the structure from base to peak point.
d = largest outer lateral dimension
