AEB inks Qatar wind tunnel engineering services deal

Qatar University has joined hands with Arab Engineering Bureau (AEB) to start wind tunnel engineering services for the Al Thumama stadium, one of the venues for Fifa World Cup 2022 matches in Qatar, said a report.

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.

“Through this agreement, we seek to promote the common relationship with AEB and widen areas of collaborations between the two sides in the field of consultancy, research and development,” stated Dr Al Derham.

“This would serve the domestic industry particularly the 2022 world football championship in Qatar in line with national priorities towards the achievement of a knowledge-based economy,” he added.

“As a leading architectural and engineering local firm, AEB is proud to see such services available at Qatar’s leading educational institution,” remarked Jaidah.

These services will greatly help young local engineers gain exposure and get involved in complex projects during their studies, he added.
