ON THE MARKING OF 100 YEARS OF AVIATION AT OUR REGION,
“ROCKET RESEARCH CENTER“ IN COOPERATION WITH
BELGRADE AERONAUTIC ASSOCIATION
INVITES YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENT POPULARLY CALLED
“HIGH POWER ROCKETRY” FESTIVAL ON
26 AND 27 SEPTEMBER, 2009.
WILL BE HELD AT A
IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF
ALL PARTICIPANTS INTERESTED TO TAKE A PART, ARE INVITED TO CAREFULLY READ THE RULES BELOW AND TO FILL OUT THE APPLICATION FORM AND SEND IT VIA E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
DETAILES AND EVENT SCHEDULE YOU CAN FIND HERE.
First of all, the attention is turn to the participants that the emphasis of this event will be not just on the competition, but primarily on the exchange of experiences and development of this new and long-forgotten discipline in which we have noted some top results in the past.
During the competition, home made missiles will be fired but device for safe descent to the ground is mandatory.
Missiles are not scale models of existing Rockets or space crafts and will be original constructive solution of any competitor by himself.
- The minimum allowed internal diameter of rocket body is 56mm if the participant uses the motor H-90-0(P) provided on the spot. Otherwise, the minimum allowed internal diameter is 46mm. In addition to these engines, there will be available and some less engines in the class F, dimensions 100 x 40mm.
- The maximum allowed rocket start mass with motor is 2.5 kg.
- The maximum altitude is 500 m
all participants on the field will be provided motors H-90-0(P)
at a cost of EUR 25, and considering the
fact that it is a Buster engine, the use of the system to activate the parachute
that is independent of rocket engine is required. Therefore, it is recommended
to use electronic timers, positional switches, differential pressure encoders, RC commands, and other similar
devices autonomous and independent of rocket engine.
The organizer of the competition provides missile rail for launch pad, 3m length, that matches your profile guide made from screw 3.5 x 25mm.
Participants can bring their missile equipment, but the professional jury will have the right to assess their security and the necessary length.
(before the start)
Before the start of competition, the professional jury certifies the rocket models and check satisfaction of basic conditions for a safe start. Competitors are obligated to submit the appropriate model with the technical documentation on the basis of which the judge can perform his evaluation. In case that the judge has a note on the security of model, he is obliged to leave the competitors the opportunity to correct the anomaly during the competition time. If a participant until the end of time anticipated for the start does not eliminate the objection he will not get permission for start and his model will be evaluated only for design quality. Thus, competitor who was not allowed to start the rocket can achieve a maximum of 40 points, what is the predicted maximum for possible points on the ground.
After checking the fulfillment of the minimum conditions for the safe start, the judges will evaluate the quality and accuracy of made, originality in design, simplicity of construction and simplicity and originality of recovery system.
- Accuracy, quality, simplicity, originality (max. 40 points)
( For example, between the two constructive solutions, more points will get a solution that is easier to make. So, you should keep in mind that this competition encourages and aims to reward creativity, imagination and innovation of competitors.)
- Stability and visual impression of the flight (0 to 20 points)
- The Recovery system activated (0 or 10 points) ___________________________________ Total 30 points
- Recovery system failed after the activation ( 0 points )
- Recovery system functioning partially after the activation (10 points)
- Recovery system functioning properly after the activation (20 points)___________________Total 20 points
- Rocket not found (0 points )
- Rocket found damaged (5 points)
Rocket found without
damages (10 points)
______________________________________Total 10 points
possible points = 100
Competitor has the right to perform 3 (three) times start again while taking into account omly the best result. Competitor who is satisfied with the result is not required to repeat the start.
TEORETICAL & EXPERIMENTAL PART OF COMPETITION
The participants are invited to reflect and explain their current researches, experiments and development projects in the field of Rocket science.
During the competition, the term for presentation of experimental work in the areas of missile technology by free choice is provided (propulsion, aerodynamics, material strength, etc.).
The first day, participants will be able to show and explain projects they work on, and the other day is reserved for practical demonstration of their works.
Expert Committee will evaluate the projects presented, and the event sponsors will reward the best and most interesting works.
We are calling all official organizations and institutions to help the maintain of competition by taking a part at the exhibition which will be set during the event.
