INTERNATIONAL ENGINEERING MECHANICS CONTEST REGULATIONS
1. Contest is public and open for the students from the CIS countries and abroad.
2. Contest consists of two parts:
· Theory Contest – results are summed up in the individual and team events;
· "Brain-ring" Team Contest – short task solutions.
1. Contest Opening.
2. Theory contest (4 hours). Students are set with 8 problems : 2 – statics, 2 – kinematics and 4 – dynamics.
3. All the papers are code numbered and checked. Preliminary results are summed up.
4. "Brain-ring" Team Contest (60 minutes). Tasks include 30 short problems: 10 for each – statics, kinematics and dynamics.
5. After the "Brain-ring" Team Contest the Theory Contest problem solutions are discussed and the appeals of preliminary results are given and heard.
6. Contest Summing up, Contest Winners’ Awarding and Closing of the Contest.
STUDENTS AND SUPERVISORS’ PARTICIPATION
1. Students of the first-forth year of education are to take part in the Contest. Students of the fifth-sixth year of education can participate in the Contest hors concours.
