The design of tall building essentially involves conceptual design, appropriate analysis, preliminary design and maximum load carrying capacity of the building. The structural design of skyscrapers must ensure to withstand any kind of fatigue, cracking, and failure of the building. The super structures design workshop aims at educating the participants about analysis and design of 5 tall buildings. Students will be introduced to basic concept of structural building engineering with the help of various case studies. Participants will understand and develop the skill required for designing tall buildings for real world.
What to do
Here participants will have to make a building/tower with Newspaper and tape. They will have to make the building/tower on the spot and submit their work within the given deadline. In order to understand and to have practical hands on experience of the designing and manufacturing of the superstructures-participants require to use raw materials (Newspapers and cello tape only) and to make most stable tallest building and their structures can be inspired from or could be replica of established tall buildings within the given time constraint. Given time- 2 hours.
- Event is open to all.
- Team size- maximum 4 (min 1).
- Participants can form teams from different branches/school/colleges/universities/institutes.
- Two teams can't have a common member.
- Time limit 2 hours.
The decision of the judges will be final. Any monument that violates the mentioned rules or the spirit of the competition will be disqualified.
