College of aeronautical engineering, National University
of sciences and technology, being the research institute, conduct the research
in variety of research areas. The basic aim of the research is to improve the
self reliance and reduce dependence on foreign agencies in order to save the
foreign exchange. The main research
energy research Group.
research group mainly focuses on the renewable energies. Research is being
conducted in solar energy, wind energy and hydro power generation. Pakistan is
facing acute shortage of electricity. The aim of this research group is to
address the energy issues of Pakistan by producing electricity using alternate
energy resources. The main projects conducted by this group are, electricity
production using wind energy, electricity production using solar energy and
electricity production using hydro energy.
conventional materials are being replaced by innovative materials having better
strength to weight ratio as compared with their metal counter parts. These
innovative materials are composite based. This research group focuses on the investigation
of the behavior of these materials to better understand the potential of such
materials. The use of composite materials is increasing day by day in aviation
industry.. Boeing 787, which comprises 50% of composite by weight, is a classic
example of composite usage. There are many unknown feathers of these materials,
which researcher need to investigate.
Design / Analysis Group.
design and analysis is a useful and cheap technique to simulate the behavior of
any system. This research group mainly focuses to address the field problem of
PAF and to propose innovative solution of field problems. The group is also
involved in exploring new technologies using FEA packages.
is a power tool to simulate the aerodynamic performance of a system. The
research conducted by this group includes the CFD analysis of aircrafts,
automobiles and sports goods. This group have conducted CFD analysis of many
PAF aircrafts to investigate their performance. The research in aerial weapons
is also being conducted extensively.
structural design Group.
research group focuses on the structural analysis and simulation and
fabrication of aircraft, UAV, UCAV. The main projects of this group include
manufacturing of small scale UAV and manufacturing of ultra light aircraft.
Aerodynamic design group.
group is involved in the aerodynamic designing and analysis of small scale
aircraft and aerial weapons. Many successful projects have been completed by
and turbo machinery group.
group is involved in the design and analysis of jet, turboprop engines being
used on aircraft and aerial weapons. This group has also conducted many useful
projects for PAF, Which resolved many field problems.
from the mentioned research groups, research in various other areas is also
