New Laboratory of Institute of Construction, Transport and Engineering

Date of material placement: 18-06-2013, 15:43.

At the beginning of the year the new scientific educational laboratory opened at Institute of Construction, Transport and Engineering of NCFU. The interdivisional laboratory of comprehensive analyses, materials, constructions and mechanisms is founded on the technical and program basis of the American company "National Instruments”. Equipment of the laboratory became possible because the university won the grant of the Ministry for Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

The laboratory is a computer classroom with the system of complexes with cards, plates, sensors and LabVIEW uniform graphic programming software that can be replaced. To measure sound vibration level, resistance force of metal, deformation and residual deformation of materials, change of temperature and any other parameters in mechanical engineering, construction, geology; to count dependence of one process on another – all this one will be able to do on the stationary equipment of the laboratory. It is also equipped with the field complex for researches outside of the university and the small portable unit to collect information.

The uniqueness of the equipment consists in its complete interchangeability, possibility to build various units in the uniform system and ability of LabVIEW program to process any information. A user should not be the programmer. It is just necessary to set a certain task to the machine.

The equipment of the laboratory is designed for both digital and analog devices with possibility of data digitization. It will be used for modeling of different processes, for development of prototypes of products, for carrying out laboratory "semi-natural” testing from an idea to its practical realization (for example, development of ready built-in systems).

World known brands from "LEGO” to "Ford”, from "Nokia” to "Boeing” use the same software. For example, Boeing uses it to test airplanes whilst landing and takeoff in a dynamic mode: with the help of about 500 microphones that are united by the program noises are gathered, analyzed and on the basis of these data conclusions about possible turbine problems are drawn. The program also allows choosing an optimum solution of problems.

Usage of opportunities of the laboratory will allow students and teachers of the institute to carry out scientific researches with the most approximate practical conditions. It will also allow graduates of the institute to use operating skills on modern equipment for further work in production or for scientific / design activity.
