  • BITS PILANI GOA CAMPUS STUDENT SECTION Newsletter: Oct 2012
  • About ASMEASME, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, is a not-for-profit membershiporganization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skillsdevelopment across all engineering disciplines. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leadingindustrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 120,000 members inover 140 countries around the globe.India comes under District G (Asia-Pacific) of this large community. ASME started itsoperations in the student community in India around 3 years back. So relatively India is a newsection to the ASME community. But even in this small span of time, India has made itspresence felt with over 30 strong student sections-the most in District G. The number of studentmembers in India is more than any other country from Asia-Pacific constituting about 65% of allthe student members of the district.Mission:ASME in India works in accordance with its international mission- “To serve our diverse globalcommunity by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge for improving thequality of life and communicating the excitement of engineering.”Vision:ASME is a membership organization recognized globally for its leadership in providing theengineering community with technical content and a forum for information exchange. With amembership of more than 127,000 mechanical engineers and allied professionals from aroundthe world, ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through high-quality programsin continuing education, the development and maintenance of codes and standards, research,conferences and publications, government relations, and various forms of outreach. 2|Page

  • 2013 Arthur L. Williston Award Contest THE WILLISTON AWARD IS PRESENTED ANNUALLY BY ASME TO THE STUDENT ENGINEER OR RECENT GRADUATE WHO AUTHORS THE BEST ACCEPTABLE PAPER IN THE AREA OF CIVIC SERVICETOPIC AREA: Engineering of Personal Transportation AlternativesASSIGNMENT: An effective and efficient transportation system, accompanied by equally high-caliber water and electricitydistribution systems, is an indispensable part of the infrastructure of a prosperous society with a high standard of living. In theUSA, for instance, the topic is of high enough strategic importance to justify the existence of a long-standing TransportationResearch Board as part of the National Academies; the think-tank organization that shapes policy, informs public opinion andadvances the pursuit of science, engineering and medicine.Transportation systems such as buses, trains, planes and ships provide for mass transportation, and tend to serve regions ofhigher population densities. Personal transportation, on the other hand, tends to be dominated by the automobile. Whileproviding a high degree of flexibility and convenience, the dependence of traditional automobiles on petroleum-based fuels iswidely recognized as unsustainable. You are being asked to examine these issues and propose your vision for the future ofpersonal transportation.Discuss the general problems of personal transportation on a global level, with a critical look at our present means oftransportation. Include in your discussion a survey of the personal transportation alternatives that have been developed orproposed, and their current status, and follow on with your vision for the future. What role would engineering innovation,especially from mechanical engineers; play in developing effective personal transportation alternatives?AWARD: The first prize winner receives formal recognition by the Society that includes having an abstract of the paperpublished in ASME News Online or Mechanical Advantage. In addition, the first prizewinner will receive a bronze medal, anhonorarium of $1000, a certificate, and travel and expense allowance for two days at the 2013 International MechanicalEngineering Congress and Exposition.  The second prize winner receives a $500 honorarium and a Williston certificate.  The third prize winner receives a $250 honorarium and a Williston certificate.  All authors of acceptable papers will receive a letter of participation.DEADLINE: Papers must be submitted by February 15, 2013 or they will not be accepted. 12 | P a g e

  • Student Design Competition2013 Student Design Competition: Remote Inspection Devicehttp://districts.asme.org/SDOB/DistrictG/India/Events/SDC.htmlAfter the tragedy at the Fukushima nuclear facility following the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake andtsunami, the nuclear industry has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to design and build a small,remotely-controlled inspection vehicle. The purpose of the vehicle is to determine the level ofradioactivity at specified locations and inspect for damage. This vehicle will protect the human operatorfrom absorbing a high dose of radioactive contamination. There is information that could be gained by theinspection vehicle that could inform the plant operators so that they may avert an accident or beginrepairs. • Your task is to design a remotely-controlled, proof-of-concept vehicle for inspection purposes. The vehicle must be able to negotiate around obstacles, both in getting to the inspection points and in bringing the sensor back to the designated return area. The vehicle must then return to its starting location, ready for another run. 15 | P a g e
