9 Location 3e322 Telecommunications Lab, 3e321 Electronics Lab
10 Skills necessary before the project Basic Computer Skills
11 Description of the project Students will begin by learning about simple electronic breadboard followed by the Arduino graphical user interface.  Students will then assemble and test electronic several circuits using Arduino UNO with circuit prototype board including use of sensors, LEDs, shift registers.
12 Involvement of students in the project Students will learn about electronic circuits and programming using ‘hands-on’ approach.

 

Project 2

1 Project’s title Introduction to 3D Printing and Modelling for Airfoil Design
2 Responsible School’s representatives Konstantinos Kostas
3 Assisting School’s representatives Luis Rojas and Bolat Ramazanov (or any other lab technician that can operate school’s wind tunnel)
4 Duration 3hrs
5 Number of students per group up to 25
6 Number of groups per day for this project up to 1
7 Necessary equipment
  1. Computer Lab,
  2. 3d Modelling CAD package (Rhino 3d),
  3. Access to a PLA/ABS 3d printer,
  4. Wind tunnel
8 Necessary consumables 1 kg of PLA filament
9 Location Computer Lab: Block 3 Room 3e.227 (or 3e217)

Aerospace Laboratory: Block 3 Room 3e.117-8

10 Skills necessary before the project Basic Computer Skills
11 Description of the project A short introductory section on airfoils is followed by a gentle introduction to 2d sketching and 3d modelling. This tutorial ends with a short introduction to 3D printing and slicing software packages. At the end, the performance of several 3D printed objects and airfoils is evaluated using an actual wind tunnel.
12 Involvement of students in the project Students learn how to design free-form shapes in CAD packages and how to prepare solid models for 3d printing. Additionally, a series of wind tunnel experiments using their designs are performed.
13 Knowledge/skills introduced after the project Basic drafting skills, 3d solid modelling skills and basic knowledge of the modelling prerequisites for 3d printing. Short introduction to experimental work via the wind tunnel demonstration.
