Department Facilities

Laboratory experiments are good assistance to lecture courses and are designed to illustrate and to supplement concepts introduced in the lectures. Laboratories are well-equipped with a variety of computing facilities and workshops.

Major laboratories are : Heat transfer; fluid mechanics; thermodynamics; hydro pneumatics; vibration and dynamics of machines; nondestructive testing and exact measurement systems, together with advanced laboratories such as CAD/DAM, robotics, CNC and a special production shop. Major workshops include: welding; casting; modeling and metal forming.

Research activities and interests include: Robotics; design and optimization of robots; shell and plate; internal combustion engine design and optimization; computational fluid dynamics; numerical methods; adaptive and fuzzy control and design of CNC machines.
