As per the agreement, the university will provide wind tunnel engineering consultancy services conforming to the recognised international standards, guidelines and practices for similar projects and in compliance with AEB requirements, reported The Gulf Times.
Its scope of work and services include a wind tunnel scheme and a detailed design stage computational fluid dynamics (CFD) verification testing of flow field performance.
It will build a 1:300 scaled model using a thermal prototype and it will also test the aerodynamic performance of the model using smoke visualisation techniques and laser sheet visualisation, said the report.
“This agreement stresses QU’s continued determination to find solutions to the challenges facing Qatar’s industry and community,” said Qatar University president Dr Hassan Rashid Al Derham after signing the deal with AEB Group chief executive officer and chief architect Ibrahim Mohamed Jaidah.
