Tags: , ,

Date: 12- 13 March 2012

Venue: Library Auditorium

Time : 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

The Event: Students were required to construct a working JCB model using simple construction materials and a hydraulic system.

     

 Organized by the Society of Automobile Engineers, the ‘Earth Mover’ Workshop, also known as ‘JCB’ Workshop, continued the program of the week’s SAE events after the Paper presentations submitted on the 11th of March. The workshops were conducted on the 12th and 13th of March, while the final competition will be held on the 18th.

Originally scheduled to be held at 5:15 pm, the first day of the workshop was postponed to 6:00 pm to accommodate the Student Body Meet organized at the Quadrangle at the same time.

Intended as a Theory Seminar, the first day of the Workshop, under the supervision of the SAE administration, started off by a 10 minute introductory presentation by a 3rd Year Mechanical student, highlighting the engineering principles and mechanical advantages of the Earth Mover machine.

The rest of the Seminar was continued by the President of SAE, S. Patil, who gave a detailed and very graphic explanation on the position of the Earth Mover’s centre of gravity and the angle of the lever arm, to name a few technical details. He made use of the JCB model for visual aiding, which was constructed by SAE. The presentation concluded with students’ doubts regarding modifications to the model being answered.

The Workshop continued on the 13th of March at 5:15 pm at the same venue, where participating teams were provided with the necessary kits for construction of their individual models.

SAE Manipal recently concluded their two-day Chassis Fabrication workshop on Sunday at the KC automobile workshop. The first day was just a general overview of what is a chassis, its purpose in automobile construction and the types of chassis. For the unaware, chassis is the basic structural design of an automobile which handles most of the weight of the occupants and any structural impact. Day 2 was the actual hands-on modelling and assembling of a chassis. Each team (of four) was given three 12ft steel rods, 6 wheels and M-seal, out of which they had to construct a tubular frame chassis.


The vehicle had to meet certain criteria like being lightweight with a large load tolerance, stability and practical feasibility of the chassis. Also, some technical specifications for the ground clearance, chassis length and width were set before the whole thing started. The whole place was abuzz with activity as teams came up with their own designs for the chassis.

Some used advanced software like Catia while for the rest pen and paper did the trick. Then the actual construction of the chassis started. The rods were cut into the desired lengths using the metal cutters available and put together using M-seal in the desired shape. Requesting extra materials (rods, M-seal) was allowed but points were deducted for it. A lot of last-minute ‘jugaad’ was seen as participants frantically corrected the imperfections in their structure using leftover materials.

The organizers were quick on their toes and helpful to the many that were using the cutting instruments for the first time. Summing up, it was one of the workshops held in Manipal that really caught the eye of its inhabitants. It had a lot to offer and was delivered extremely well.
