List of Proposed Graduation Projects 2012/2013

Production and Mechatronics Divisions

Web-based controlled machines

ASU-GARDS is coordinating a new TEMPUS Project titled ‘e-Laboratories for Physics and Engineering Education’ in cooperation with 8 other Egyptian and European universities in addition to the Egyptian Ministry of Communication and the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education. The main objective is to establish a virtual engineering campus for laboratory exercises on the internet. As a part of this project, a few hardware experiments will be built at the university campus and will be controlled through web-based interfaces.

The students will be required to select a certain experiment in coordination with the supervisors. These experiments can also be from industrial applications. The objective and intended learning outcomes will be identified and the best interaction scheme among students and the e-experiment will be determined. The test rig will then be manufactured. Then comes the development of the programs which will be used to control the experiment remotely will be developed. The last phase is the implementation and testing of these experiments online. The testing of the experiment will be done in two phases by a sample of students; first they will perform the experiment themselves in the lab to ensure the proper design of the test rig and made the necessary modifications based on their feedback. Then the students will test it remotely to evaluate the interface developed and used to run the experiment.

Required number of students: 4-5

Investigation of CAD geometry definitions and meshing techniques

Engineering Design and Manufacturing use several formats for geometry definitions. Some of these formats are software locked, and some of them are universal. The CAD geometry for design and analysis is usually different from the CAD geometry for manufacturing. Within this project, it is required to investigate different CAD geometry formats in order to interpret the domains and boundaries definitions, dimensions and locations. The next step is to investigate different meshing techniques based on the interpreted geometry. It will be required to assign different boundary conditions to each boundary. This mesh will be applied for the acoustic analysis of Mufflers using a new technique based on the two-port theory.

Used Software: MATLAB and JAVA.

Required number of students: 3

Noise Impact Assessment of Wind Turbines

Noise of the turbines and its impact on the surrounded environment is a major consideration in determining the acceptance of a wind farm planning application. The purpose of this project is to study the noise impact assessment for wind turbines, and put design constraints for the wind farms to adapt with the environmental regulations. Noise impact assessment studies the positive and/or negative influences a project may have on the environmental noise. It considers three main areas:

  • Noise sources to estimate the generated sound power.
  • Sound propagation studying the effect of the environment on the propagation of noise.
  • Noise receivers investigating sound pressure levels at the receivers in comparison to law.

The objectives of this project are:

  • Deducing efficient methods to calculate sound power level generated from wind turbines.
  • Modeling noise propagation for wind farms and defining design constraints for the wind farms to adapt with the environmental regulations.
  • Validation of the developed models with real case studies.

Required number of students: 4-5

Using Virtual Reality in Cultural Heritage Education

The main project objective is to establish virtual reality academic system for Egyptian cultural heritage courses (targeting different eras) using stereoscopic virtual reality technology. Virtual reality models shall be developed for a selection of the most important ancient sites including underwater ones, allowing undergraduate and graduate students to immerse in these sites exploring all their attributes and link to world databases. Implementation shall take the following directives:

  • Develop virtual reality models (scene) for the different Egyptian eras based on existing or in-course developed digital media.
  • Stereoscopic / mono visualization technology (switching between based on the hardware used). The software detects if the system is equipped with stereoscopic capability, then it starts presenting data in stereoscopic form and otherwise makes the switch automatic to mono.
  • Virtual networking with real-time video streaming.
  • Virtual Library connected with an actual online digital library.

Required number of students: 4-5
