GeoTap
Device a system to efficiently harvest energy from temperature gradient of earth.
As the harmful effects of the continual usage of conventional energy sources become more profound day by day, the need for an alternate energy source is becoming increasingly eminent. Geothermal air conditioning is potentially a very effective source of energy, accomplishing the seemingly impossible task of maintaining indoor room temperatures at the cost of minimal energy usage. The effective usage of such a system in real life would also have immensely positive implications on the environment by greatly reducing the damage caused by the conventional air conditioning systems around the world.

Kshitij 2015 brings you the event Geo Tap, a challenge to design a realistic and ideal system of air conditioning. So, do you have it in you to design the most efficient and environment friendly system of air conditioning mankind has ever seen?

Laws of Motion
Boeing National Aeromodelling Competition
The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human nature. Many elaborate attempts have been made to explain this intricacy of nature. But for the part of the universe apparent to the eye, the classical ‘Laws of Motion’ suffice. One of the flagship events, it calls upon enthusiasts and engineers alike to design a RC motor powered aircraft , abandon their advanced technical knowledge and confront our challenge head on with nothing but the "Laws of Motion -Boeing National Aeromodelling Competition".
Team Size: Maximum of 4
General Rules:
Submissions to be sent at submissions@ktj.in
  • The participants are required to submit an abstract containing pictures and video of their flight as per the problem statement, before 5th January, 2015.
  • The participants are required to bring their complete kits to IIT Kharagpur.
  • A pair of receiver and transmitter (Rx and Tx) will be provided by organizers, on prior request of the participants. The Tx-Rx pair has 4 or 6 channels. It can be used to control a maximum of 3 servo motors. Participants who wish to use Rx and Tx provided by us, will have to make provision for this receiver on their aircrafts. The participants can bring their own set of receiver and transmitter if they want.
  • All teams must be present before the commencement of the event. Teams will be disqualified if they do not turn up during the slot allotted to them.
  • Maximum Team size of 4 per team.
  • The teams must adhere to the spirit of healthy competition. The teams must not damage the opponent's aircraft in any way. Judges reserve the exclusive rights to disqualify any team indulging in misbehavior.
  • The aircraft would be checked for its safety before the commencement of the event and would be discarded if found unsafe for other participants and spectators.
  • The organizers reserve all rights to change any or all of the above rules. Change in any rule, if any, will be highlighted on the website.
  • All rounds of Laws of motion will be held at IIT Kharagpur during Kshitij.
  • Judges’ decisions on any matter will be considered final.
  • The participants need to send the video and pictures of their model by 4th January 2015 to the undersigned head keeping the subject as “Laws of Motion_Team Id”.
AIRCRAFT SPECIFICATION
  • An aircraft (model) is defined as a powered aircraft if it experiences exactly 4 forces during flight, namely lift, drag and weight (due to gravity) and thrust. Note: Parachutes and Para aircrafts do not qualify as aircrafts since they do not have lift. Also airships which contain gases lighter than air are not considered as aircrafts and hence will not be allowed.
  • Although there are no constraints on size and weight of the aircraft, it is advisable to keep the wingspan less than 1.75 meter and weight less than 900 grams.
  • The aircraft should be motor powered. Use of IC (Internal combustion) engine is not allowed.
  • The voltage of the battery used should not be more than 12V.
  • It is advisable to include a good landing gear system in the design and construction phase of your aircraft. Remember, taking-off and landing are very important phases of this competition.
  • The participants are free to use any materials of their choice. However the use of Balsa wood, Styrofoam or Sun Board is advisable. Balsa wood is light and easy to handle and to fabricate, hence is a good choice.
  • Participating teams are not allowed to use any electronic system that may augment the stability and control of the aircraft, like gyroscopes in an auto-pilot. For the purposes of the competition, no electronic performance enhancement should be used. Remember, the competition is a test of the design, construction and flight performance of your aircraft.
  • Participants must make all parts of the aircrafts themselves. Usage of Ready-to-Fly (RTF) and Almost-Ready-to-Fly (ARF) kits are strictly prohibited. However, the kit comprising of unassembled cut-pieces of balsa wood is allowed since it requires skilled work to be done upon it and one can assemble it to his or her advantage. Also use of readymade actuators/motors, remote controls is allowed. Note: Any team violating the above rule will be disqualified immediately.
