Aircraft Structures Lab.
The structure lab. contains
at the moment old instrumentations; namely stress test
apparatus, shear center testing bench and deflection measurement
The department is in the
phase of replacing the old items by new and additional testing
facilities besides plans for well equipped workshops for
teaching and research purposes.
Vibrations & Acoustics
The Vibration and Acoustics
the most new unit in the Aeronautical Engineering Department.
Studying vibration and acoustic phenomena is paramount for
engineering design of safer and environmentally friendlier
aircraft and other engineering applications.
the lab. contains the following equipment:
Modal Analysis unit
Sound Intensity unit
This laboratory is equipped by different
devices and measurement tools that helps students to understand
different courses such as; Fluid Mechanics (AE301), Aerodynamics
I (AE302), Aerodynamics II (AE402), Boundary Layer Theory
(AE418) and Wind Tunnel Techniques (AE430).
The Laboratory contains the
Subsonic wind tunnel.
Super sonic wind tunnel.
Laminar & turbulent flow
Pipe flow experiments.
Jet engine (Gas Turbine)
Pressure and velocity
The department have two
computer labs. The first one contains 9 work stations connected
to a server by a local network.
And the other contains 5 work
stations, mainly used by graduate students and staff members.
