- Prof. P K Sen, Professor Emeritus IIT Delhi
- Prof. UN Roy, Professor and Head, NITTR, Chandigarh
Indrajeet and Alok Kumar, students of 3rd Year Civil Engineering branch DGI Greater Noida presented their research paper on the topic "Floating Bridge". The paper is focused on making a bridge to cross the river that floats on the water with optimum cost. The bridge consists of two portions: Floating and Hydraulic. Floating part is made in such a way that it can float on water using buoyancy principle and can move up and down as the water level varies.
Vikas Singh and Vishal Roy 3rd Year students of Mechanical Engineering branch DGI Greater Noida presented their research paper on the topic "Rocker Bogie Suspension System for Heavy Loading Vehicles". The paper focuses on developing a suspension system for heavy load vehicles. The motive of this research is to develop a mechanical design that includes advantages of rocker-bogie suspension system and implement it suitably in conventional heavy loading vehicles (e.g. tractor and truck).
The Golden Jubilee National Seminar concluded with the distribution of Certificates.
Dr UN Roy proposed Vote of Thanks.
It was great experience for students to present the papers among delegates from around the world. Students got a chance to interact with leading academicians and their counter parts from various colleges. This has instilled confidence among students to present their ideas and ultimately improved their presentation skills. The deliberations of the seminar will go a long way in the development of innovative ideas, approaches for sustainable rural development.
