Technex 2014

Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication

Countless novel and groundbreaking technological advancements in the last decade have seen Technology evolve into a multifaceted being. With the intricacies of technology getting more complex, the designers faced the new-fangled task of encapsulating the technology in an urn that could both, amaze and tempt. As novel as the problem was, the solution was even more uncomplicated. The vitality of human-machine interaction obligated Technology to become effortlessly straightforward. Interfaces, these days, are designed solely attempting to make the exchange of information simpler, realizing that “Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication”.

Technex ’14, the techno-management gala of IIT (BHU) is a tribute to this very realization that has gone on to change the face of modern technology. Technex is a celebration of the building blocks of our modern lifestyles, Technology and Management. Technex 2014 thus intends to bring to you a techno-management carnival, astounding in its very Simplicity.

Guest Lectures

The sharing of ideas and thoughts has always been the way to revolutions. In early times, even before books came into being, knowledge and ideas where passed by the word of mouth. The elders and scholars would orally present their thoughts as knowledge and this would go down generations. This oral presentation was a primitive form of a lecture today. As our ancestors realised the power of speech, the power to bring change, even today it processes the same. So gather up to hear those inspiring thoughts, to witness the spectacle of how ideas can propagate and lead to change. With a line up of eminent speakers, we plan to bring an interactive platform for discussing topics ranging from technology to management.

  • Dare to differ

    In the citation given to him by BHU along with the 'Distinguished Alumnus Awards' in 2008, his name was described as synonymous with the Swachha Ganga Campaign.

    Each morning he would slowly and respectfully step into the waters at Tulsighat for prayer but not before he poured Ganga jal on his forehead.

    The river was more for the mind and less for the body, he believed.

    He also displayed a multi-talented character, from his pahalwani (wrestling) in the akhara, to being the upholder of Sanskritic values and education, and conservator of classical music. He also personified the Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb, even in times of communal distress, especially during the 2006 Sankat Mochan attack.

    The SMF, working under his able guidance for the cause of Ganga, has been associated with other organisations like Thames 21 (London), Friends of Ganges (US), Asia Foundation, Oz Green (Australia), and Swedish International Development Agency. He received many national and international awards and recognitions.

  • "Hero of the planet"

    As an expert member of the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA), he worked toward arresting the Ganga’s fast deteriorating condition, promoting education and health-care programmes for the underprivileged, and maintaining and encouraging age-old cultural traditions of Varanasi in tune with present day environmental needs. His multifaceted and innovative measures won him recognition from the United Nations Environment Programme, which put him on its Global 500 Roll of Honour in 1992. Time magazine declared him the magazine’s “Hero of the Planet” (1999) for bringing the plight of the Ganga to the world’s attention and inspiring other river activists. He was adept at explaining the issues concerning the river to both experts and laypersons. In his words, “When I talk to officials I show them reports on faecal coliform. When I talk to locals I tell them there is filth in the holy Ganges. It’s the same thing but I say it in different languages.” For his commitment to the river, he rightly won the epithet “Ganga Putra (Son of the Ganga”). Varanasi will also remember him for his “Ganga-ethics” and his personal relationship with the river, which motivated him to say: “I am part of Ganga and Ganga is part of me.” Yet, just as he once said that he “can’t think beyond [the] Ganga,” it is difficult to think of him beyond his intimacy with the river. At Varanasi, considered the sacred heart of the Ganga, the river bends north towards the city as if to prove affinity with it. It was his dream to cleanse the Ganga from its sacred point and at the same time inspire the political world and society to work towards it. Though he considered the Ganga’s devotees a vanishing species, he remained hopeful to the end that one day, there would not be a drop of sewage in the river.

  • People die when they are forgotten

    With his passing, the holy city of Varanasi has lost an iconic figure. Perhaps, as importantly, the Ganga has lost a favourite guardian.
    The noted environmentalist and mahant of the famous Sankatmochan temple, Professor Veer Bhadra Mishra, died on Wednesday at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) hospital, where he was admitted on March 3 for a lung infection. He was 74.
    He is survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters, and leaves behind a legacy of exemplary commitment and devotion towards the well-being of the Ganga. His last rites were performed on Thursday on the ghats of Varanasi.
    Professor Mishra, who inherited the position of mahant at the age of 14 after the death of his father, was the founding president of Sankat Mochan Foundation, a non-profit, non-political organisation working for the cause of Ganga in Varanasi since 1982.
    Though he was better known as a religious person, he joined his training with his spirituality, juggling the political, environmental and the holy into a practical crusade to free the river of pollution.
    Rich tributes were paid to Mishra, with spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar paying homage. Leaders across political parties attended the funeral.
    The SMF, working under his able guidance for the cause of Ganga, has been associated with other organisations like Thames 21 (London), Friends of Ganges (US), Asia Foundation, Oz Green (Australia), and Swedish International Development Agency. He received many national and international awards and recognitions.

    "I am a part of Ganga and Ganga is a part of me. I want not a single drop of sewage going into the river."

  • Rules and Contacts


    Round 1- Show your strength


    The aircraft will have to make 2 laps between two given checkpoints 300 metres apart.
    The team completing it in minimum time will be credited with maximum points.
    Timer will start with the sign of controller (starts from take off) and stops when plane comes to rest completely.


    Participant will be given 30 seconds (including take off) for propulsion and after that throttle should be cut off and participants will have to glide their plane to maximize the time of flight.

    Round 2- Show your skills

    In this round the participant will have to perform some maneuvers listed below. The number of points awarded against the total will be based on the smoothness and accuracy of the maneuvers.

    Team will have to do spot landing i.e. land the plane in landing zone after completing the maneuvers.

    The Maximum time given to each team (i.e. for engine warm-up, take-off, maneuvering and landing) is 10 minutes.

    Points will be deducted for crossing this limit and maneuvers performed after 7 minutes (total) will not be judged. The pilot must take off within 2 minutes of being called on the flight line.

    However spot landing will be considered even after 7 minutes.

    Extra points will be given for completing round before 6 minutes.


    The maneuvers need to be performed are as following:

    Sr. No. Manoeuver Max Points

    1 Roll 20

    2 Inside Loop 20

    3 Inverted loop 30

    4 Immelmann Loop 40

    5 Stall turn 40

    6 Square loop 40

    7 Half Cuban Eight 50

    8 4 point roll 50

    9 Cuban Eight 60

    10 Hovering 70

    1. Roll: Rolls have to be flown normally on a straight line (exception is the avalanche). The roll rate has to be constant and the longitudinal axis of the plane has to go straight. This requires constantly changing rudder and elevator control inputs throughout the roll.

    2. Inside Loop: A vertical circle entered from straight and erect level flight. A positive pitching movement is used at all points in the loop to draw the circle, so that the aeroplane canopy is pointing inwards.

    3. Inverted Loop: Vertical loop in which plane remains inverted at start and end of the loop.

    4. Immelmann Loop: 1/2 looping up followed by half a roll. There should be no pause between the end of the looping section and the start of the roll to erect flight.

    5. Stall turn: 1/4 loop (pull or push) to vertical, as momentum/airspeed decreases, rudder is applied and the aircraft rotates around its yaw axis, the nose falls through the horizon and points towards the ground, a momentary pause is made to draw the vertical down line, and 1/4 loop to level flight. This figure is sometimes called a stall turn which is a misnomer because the aircraft never actually stalls.

    6. Square loop: This is a variation of the basic loop. The two vertical lines and the horizontal line on top have to be of the same length. The exit line at the bottom has to be at least as long as the other three sides. The quarter loops that connect the four sides have to have the same radius at each corner.

    7. Half Cuban Eight: From level flight, 5/8s loop to the inverted 45° line, 1/2 roll to erect down 45° line, pull to level flight.

    8. 4 Point Roll: The four-point roll (hesitation roll) is a horizontal roll with a brief hesitation at 90, 180 and 270 degrees. You should be able to do a roll without any altitude loss or heading deviation.

    9. Cuban Eight: Two Half Cuban Eights can be combined to form a Cuban Eight or Lay-down Eight. The two looping parts have to be flown at the same altitude with the same radius. The exit has to be at the same altitude as the entrance to the figure.

    10. Hovering: At the height of maximum 15 feet keep the aircraft vertical for at least 10 sec and max of 20 sec at the same point (approx.). Each second carry points after 10 sec.


    After finishing the maneuvers participants have to land their aircraft in the mentioned arena. The landing zone will be marked on the airstrip. The better the touch down, greater the marks obtained.


    1. The Aircraft should have a wing span of at least one metre (1 m).

    2. There is no restriction on the type of Plane being used (may be handmade or RTF/ARF). There is no restriction on the material used to make the model.

    3. Electric powered aircrafts are not allowed. (For electric plane competition, register for La-Trajectoire).

    4. Each team has to bring its own model. Exchange of models between teams is strictly not allowed.

    5. A team can use only one model throughout the competition. The same model should be used in all the rounds.

    6. Maximum number of members in a team is 5. Participants can be from different college/university.

    7. Fuel will not be supplied by the organizers to the participants. However, it will be arranged only on prior request and payment.
