New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Fall Festival NJIT Day - Features a Catapult Contest, Soccer, Live Music and Food http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-295.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-295.phpThu, 18 Aug 2005 00:00:00 -0400 During New Jersey Institute of Technology's annual fall festival – known as NJIT Day – student teams will compete in a catapult-building contest. The night before the contest, five teams will be given piles of junk – wood planks, wheels, rods, rope, bolts, baskets, etc.  For the next 18 hours, the teams will use their engineering savvy to transform these materials into old-fashioned catapults. Modeled after the TV show Junkyard Wars, the contest is called Junkpile Wars. The teams will fire bean bags from the catapults at a target placed on the campus green, and a panel of NJIT deans will select the best-built and most accurate-shooting catapult.

MEDIA ADVISORY http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-128.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-128.phpFri, 31 Oct 2003 00:00:00 -0500 “During construction, pieces are still coming together, so there is definitely some vulnerability,” says John Schuring, in response to the parking deck collapse in Atlantic City. “Also, the loading on the structure is unpredictable during construction.” A multi-story structure such as a parking deck also relies on the strength of concrete cured just days earlier. “Sometimes,” he adds, those strengths may be overestimated because the concrete is not fully cured.”
