Automotive Branch Laboratories:

Automotive branch labs utilized for students practical work and for post graduate students research needs, it includes:

1. Engine Dynamometer.

   It is used for evaluation of ICE performance through the following  measurements:

- engine torque and rpm.

- engine fuel consumption.

- intake air flow rate.

2. Petrol Engine and Diesel Engine

    These two engines are suitable to be tested on the engine dynamometer.


3-Automotive Air Conditioning System Panel.

   It consists of all the components of the automotive air conditioning system

   fixed on mobile bench and introduces to the students the following:

- The components of the air conditioning system.

- System operation.

- Maintenance and repair of the system.


4. Multi-Fuel (Petrol and natural gas)  Engine (Fiat 124).

    The Engine fixed on test rig and operated by two fuel systems (petrol or Natural  Gas) and provides the following:


- performing some tests related to natural gas and petrol fuel systems

- maintenance operations ( compression pressure test – leakage test-exhaust gas analysis-  fuel pump output pressure)

 – measurement for engine electrical equipment..

- construction, operation and diagnosis of the components  of the natural gas engines fuel system.



 5-Automotive Electrical Circuits Simulation Device:

   It consists of the majority of electrical systems and circuits in vehicles mounted on board, and    it is used  for the following:-

- construction of  car electrical systems.

- maintenance operations.

  - trouble diagnosis of electrical system.

6- Friction Clutch Measuring Device      

               It’s a devices used for the following measurements:

   - the force  on friction plate .

   - the deflection in the spring.


7-  Diesel Injection Pump and Injectors Tester :

    It’s advice which allows testing the following:

   - Measuring the injection pump quantity.

   - Measuring the pressure of injection and operation of each injector 


              - The injection pressure of each injector separately.


8- Electronic Petrol Fuel Injection and Direct Ignition System (DIS).

    It following can be performed using the board :

    - construction and operation of  electronic systems (fuel- injection – ignition) .

    -  testing of different system parts, (fuel injection –ignition)
