On Dec. 7 2008, the 3 teams of our university participating in the 3rd Creation Competition of Civil Engineering Structural Model in Hunan Universities, including 9 students, won the 2 items of the 2nd Class Award and the 1 item of the 3rd Class Award in the spirits of struggle, unify and innovation.
The Creation Competition of Civil Engineering Structural Model in Hunan Universities is a provincial competition for all the undergraduates Hunan universities majoring in civil engineering, which is held by the Construction Ministry of Hunan Province in every 2 years. The 3rd competition was held on Dec. 4-7, 2008 in Hunan University of Science and Technology. Professor Shen Pusheng from Hunan University played the Director of Competition Commission. The competition process included the model manufacture in situ in limited time and material (drawing paper, cotton thread, and glue), and the model test by the loading experiment. The ratio of the maximal load to the dead weight of the model was the appraisal standard. The award items included 2 items of the 1st Class Award, 4 items of the 2nd Class Award, and 6 items of the 3rd Class Award. There were 43 teams from 15 Hunan universities participated in this competition.

Among them, the model “Flower Bud” manufactured by Li Xiang, Shi Haili and Gao Ruibin won the 2nd Class Award recording the third place, which the model loaded 43kg by the dead weight of 100g with the wonderful design, the reasonable structure and the strong loading capacity; the model “Childhood Dream” manufactured by Qiu Lizhong, Zhu Sijing and Feng Zhongqi won the 2nd Class Award recording the fourth place, which the model loaded the load of 44.35kg by the dead weight of 111g with the beautiful physical appearance, the reasonable stress design and the strong loading capacity; the model “Dragon in Phoenix Palace” manufactured by Wang Jin, Zhang Saijun and Shi Jun won the 3rd Class Award, which the model loaded the load of 32.8kg by the lightest dead weight of 85g. In 15 universities, our university is the only one with all the participating teams being the awarding teams.
