Congratulations on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan
We are pleased to extend our warmest congratulations and blessings to all the employees and students of the Mechanical Engineering Department on the occasion of the blessed month of Ramadan.
Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering celebrates Women's Day
Mechanical Engineering, in coordination with the Women's Empowerment Unit at the University of Technology, held a celebration on the occasion of Women's Day, in the presence of the Head of the Department, Assistant Professor Dr. Moayed Razoki Hassan, the Assistant Head of the Department for the Scientific Affairs Assistant Professor Dr. Muhsin Nouri Hamza, and Assistant for Postgraduate Studies Dr. Emad Abdul Hussein.
The ceremony began with the playing of the national anthem, then reading Surat Al-Fatihah, as a tribute to the martyrs of the educational process.After that, Assistant Professor Dr. Moayed Razoki Hassan gave a speech in which he praised the great and prominent role played by Iraqi women as partners in change and progress, praising the exceptional efforts of women, especially in the scientific aspect and their distinguished role in providing society with important scientific expertise and competencies.
The celebration included a group of activities on this occasion, where Mrs. Hind Mahmoud Shabib, Director of the Women's Empowerment Department at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Antiquities, delivered a lecture entitled (Iraqi women have a bright past and continuous giving). The students of the Student Activities Department presented distinguished artistic activities, as well as poems that sang the role of women. Iraqi in sacrifice and altruism.
A patent for Prof. Dr. Sadeq Hussein Bakhy, University of Technology / Department of Mechanical Engineering, and several academic staff members.
Design and Fabrication of Resistance Spot Welding Machine to Manufacture Honeycomb Core for Sandwich Panels
Composite materials are used in the aircraft and automotive industries and in various engineering applications because they have lightweight, high resistance and energy absorption. Sandwich panel with honeycomb core is one of the most important composite material classifications, it consists of relatively thin but stiff face sheets and a thick but soft honeycomb-type core, which has several types of shapes and materials.
The existence of adhesives material in the manufacture of these panels is essential. Due to the dynamic stresses and high vibrations in the real application, adhesives are considering one of the most important causes of the failure of these panels because they do not have all the mechanical properties to maintain the form of this structure.
The proposed idea attempts to overcome these industrial constraints by using spot resistance welding instead of adhesive material in the manufacture of sandwich panels with honeycomb core. Due to the unavailability of a machine with specifications that allow the manufacture of honeycomb core for sandwich panels, the machine is designed with a controller that allows control of spot welding conditions (welding time, squeezing force, and squeezing time after welding).
Shear stress test was performed on specimens jointed by three types of adhesive material and specimens joint by spot welding by the proposed machine, according to the American Welding Society (AWS). It was observed that shear stress in welded samples under optimal conditions is 60 times greater than shear stress with glued samples. Therefore, the proposed spot-welding machine can be used in the production of sandwich panels for the aircraft and automobile industry.
His Excellency the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Inspects the Conduct of Examinations in the Department of Mechanical Engineering
His Excellency the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Dr. Naeem Al-Aboudi, inspected the examinations in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, in the presence of the President of the University of Technology, Prof. Dr. Ahmed Al-Ghabban, the Scientific Undersecretary of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Prof. Dr. Haider Abd Dahad, and the Assistant President for Administrative Affairs, Prof. Dr. Hussein Hamid Karim, and the Assistant President The university for scientific affairs and postgraduate studies, Prof. Dr. Khawla Salah Khashan, the head of the department, Dr. Moayad Razouqi Hassan, and the advanced staff of the University of Technology.
The Minister was briefed on the central preparations taken by the department in providing the appropriate atmosphere for students to facilitate the conduct of the exams in the fullest way, which were in line with the directives of the Ministry and the presidency of the university in accordance with the requirements that achieve the best atmosphere for performing the exams.
His Excellency also toured the classrooms and asked his questions to students about the nature of the questions and the appropriateness of the exam halls, as His Excellency, praised all the efforts taken during the student’s performance on the exams at the end of the first semester of the current academic year.
