Unpowered glider scoring system

  1. 1. BRIEF CATEGORY B:UNPOWERED GLIDER Page 1
  2. 2. OVERVIEW• Challenge• Competition Setup• Rules & Regulations• Scoring System• Awards• Trials: Venue & Dates Page 2
  3. 3. CHALLENGE To design and build a small unpoweredglider (of limited wingspan) to be bungee- launched from a designated launcher to compete for best range, best track and optimal performance. Page 3
  4. 4. COMPETITION SETUP Page 4
  5. 5. • The launcher will be elevated at an inclination of 0o• Upon tension to the launch position, the total pulling force on the adaptor plate is about 10kgf• During the competition, the launcher will be placed on a 0.75m high platform on the stage Page 5
  6. 6. GLIDER ATTACHMENTAttachment: Installation:Estimated 20 g Page 6
  7. 7. RULES & REGULATIONS• Each team comprises of 2-5 members• Open to Secondary and IP students (levels 1-4). Team members must be from the same school• Each team is to design and build an unpowered glider based on the following guidelines: - All parts of the glider must be fabricated by the teams. Kits or off-the-shelf models or parts, i.e. servo motor, receiver, transmitter, are not allowed - The glider must have a wing span of between 0.5m and 1.0m - The glider must be capable of being launched from a launcher via a glider attachment, which will be provided to all participating teams to be attached to the base of the glider - No balloon and airship design will be allowed. No gaseous substance lighter than air will be allowed Page 7
  8. 8. • Submit two 4R sized photo during presentation. No major changes to flying machine after presentation• Each participating team will be allowed to bring up to two IDENTICAL gliders into the competition hallNOTE: For more details please check out the Challenge Booklet onwww.dsoamazingcompetitions.com.sg/safmc/categories.php Page 8
  9. 9. FLIGHT COMPETITION• Each team will be given a total of THREE (3) minute to setup their unpowered glider on the launcher• Each team will only be given TWO (2) attempts during the competition. The attempts will not be consecutive, and will be in different sessions. Teams are advised to return to their respective team booth. The team is allowed to repair or make simple modification to the glider before the next attempt• The better measurements between the two attempts will be taken to vie for “The Best Range”, “The Best Track” and “Optimal Performance” awards Page 9
  10. 10. SCORING SYSTEMBest Range & Best Track 15 m Minimum Range of 10.00m Range = 15.00 m 25 m 5m Track = OTE Range = 15.00 m Range Track = 1.00 m Launcher Launcher Centreline Track Range = 15.00 m Envelope Range = 5.00 m Track = OTE Track = OTE Page 10
  11. 11. SCORING SYSTEMOptimal PerformanceOptimal performance for each attempt (for each team) is obtainedwith the following equation:  Glider Weight for the Attempt   Glider Range for the Attempt OP =   Heaviest Glider for the Session    Best Range for the Session   100       Optimal performance scoring will be recorded after each of the 2sessions. The team with the highest value will win this award (max valueof 100). Page 11
  12. 12. CAT B AWARDS Type How do we win that? Weightage (for the Championship Award) Championship Overall Champion -- Range Furthest distance from the launcher 25% Shortest distance from the launcher centre Track 10% line. Subjected to a minimum range of 10mOptimal Performance Largest OP value 10% Aesthetics Most artistically decorated flying machine 0% Best innovative and original flying machine Creativity 15% design Theory of Flight Best knowledge in aerodynamics principles 15% Best exhibit creativity, fluency in the Presentation 20% presentation of their team’s work Microsoft Flight Best capture of learning journey (photos, 5% Logbook videos, blogs etc) with Microsoft Live@edu Page 12
