CHEM-E Car


EVENT DESCRIPTION

Chem-e-car is the major event represented by chemical engg in equilibrio 2k18. It gives an idea of how to drive a car by using chemical reaction & how to stop a car by using kinetics of clock reaction and autonomous.


STAGES OF COMPETITION

  • Abstract submission: details (weightage 10%)

  • Viva/presentation round (event day) : (weightage 20%)

  • OBJECTIVES:

    To design a chemical energy powered car that can carry a given amount of load and move specified distance.

    Round 1

    Abstract submission round: (weightage 10%)- mandatory for further selection

  • Abstract must contain

  • Introduction of team members.

  • Cost of chemical required

  • Car feature and setup

  • Chemical reaction used and its details

  • Creativity in car design

  • Environmental and safety feature

  • Send your abstract in ‘.pdf’ or ‘.ppt’ format to sakchhi470@gmail.com or neeteeshkaushik01@gmail.com Subject of mail should be “ Chem-E- Car_Abstract_<Team-Name>” and file name must be <Team-Name>.pdf or <Team-Name>.ppt

  • Selection of further round depends on last abstract submitted till 10 th January 2018.

  • The result of selected abstract will be put on the website & facebook page of eqilibrio and will also be mailed to you by 12 th january 2018.

  • Feel free to contact our competition managers for any queries.

  • Penalty will be imposed if the model deviates from the abstract submitted.

    1. PERFORMING ROUND : (WEIGHTAGE – 70%)


      A trail will be given to each team. In this car would be checked for emission of harmful chemicals, if found so team will be eliminated. Team will be disqualified if judge deems the car unsafe for run on the given venue. Only one opportunity will be given.
    2. STARTING CAR

    3. Only two minutes will be given to setup the model. Once the car crosses the starting line, team cannot touch their car i.e. No chemicals can be added else after. Any contact with the car their after will lead to disqualification. Any type of mechanical device or push for the starting of a car will result in penalty. If car is initiated and not moving (i.e. Till it has not crossed start line), you can retouch the car if you are within your time limit of two minutes.
    4. STRENGTH TEST

    5. Car is expected to carry a specified payload of 0-500 grams. Car should have a proper room to keep the load. One of the organiser from team eqilibrio will measure the payload and it would be given to you to pour it in your car. Required payload will be informed 2 hours prior to start of competition.
    6. TRACK DETAILS

    7. Car should traverse a distance of 8-15 metres in a rectangular area of width 1.5 – 2 metres. Required distance will be traversed will be given to each team for two hour prior to start of performing round. Track includes 3rammers/ speed breakers equally spaced and rough patch of 1-1.5 metres as shown in figure.
    8. COURSE LAYOUT

    9. The foremost point of car’s initial and final position will be noted down to calculate the distance traversed by the car. Distance of middle-foremost point from middle line will be measured to calculate the deviation of car. Finish distance will be measured from the finish line. The distance will be always be measured from the finish line to the front of the car. A vehicle goes outside the course will have its distance measured to where it went out of bounds and accordingly penalty in the form of point deduction will be imposed.
    10. DIMENSION OF CAR

    11. Car must fit in the box of 50 ×35×35 cm 3 . Car may be disassembled to meet the requirement. If the judges are uncertain whether the car will fit inside the box when disassembled, they may request that the team demonstrate that they can do this.
    12. PROVISION OF CHEMICALS

    13. Teams are responsible for bringing their chemical supplies. Disposal of the waste in the disposal site is team’s responsibility.
    14. WORKING OF CAR

    15. Car working mostly depends upon the chemical reaction and to control the product of the reaction. The car must be powered and stopped by a chemical reaction. Use of commercial batteries or commercial engines is strictly prohibited in your car system.
    16. DURATION OF RUN

    17. The maximum time limit for the run is 4 minutes. If the car is still moving in the end of the 4 minutes will be consider as its final position and time opf travel as 4 minutes. If the car is not moving after initiation of car for a time of one minute, your team will be eliminated or position will be noted down and time of run will be calculated as 4 minutes.
    18. TRAIL RUNS AND RESET

    19. An hour timing will be reserved for all teams to take trails runs before the actual run starts. One reset will be permissible if car goes out of bounds/track layout and does not pass through rough patch. Again if car goes out of track then best of two measurement will be taken for calculation of points.
    20. ECONOMICS

    21. Abstract must include the amount and the cost of all chemicals required for the construction of your car.

    PRESENTATION/ VIVA ROUND : (WEIGHTAGE – 20%)

  • This will be face to face round with the judge; you will be graded purely on the viva taken by judges.

  • This will be more of technical interview taken by our judges.
  • GENERAL RULES

    1. Each team may have maximum of four members. Multiple teams from same institution are allowed, considering their abstract and model is not same.

    2. Final date of abstract submission is 10 January 2018.

    3. Cost of chemical used must be mentioned in abstract.

    4. Decision made by committee and judges will be final.

    SAFETY MEASURES

    Each team must use appropriate safety measures. Which are as follows:-
  • Every chemical must be labelled properly, in English, with team identity. The container of chemicals must be covered as well.

  • • Proper protective measures must be taken by team against chemicals and electric hazards. I.e. to prevent human exposure to these chemicals and to prevent the possibility of electric shock.

  • • Every team has to bring their own equipment. These equipment may include lab coats, safety glasses, gloves, face shields, and hearing protection.

  • Certification policy

  • Top two winners will be awarded with prises and certificates of merit.

  • Third will be awarded with certificate only.
  • PRIZE
