School of Civil Engineering, Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai is hosting a 24 hour truss building event at our campus.
The event will give a platform for the young budding Civil Engineers and Structural Engineers to show case their talent in steel design. The competition is a 24 hour event which includes design, drafting, physical model fabrication and testing of the truss. The event will enable participants to understand the process of design, drafting, execution and testing of a truss structure.
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
