AUS professors get QNRF grant

/ Categories: In the Media 13193
Two faculty members from American University of Sharjah (AUS) were recently awarded an $800,000 grant by the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) through the National Priorities Research Program (NPRP), the flagship funding programme of QNRF. 
The funding is to support their research proposal entitled 'Guidelines for Enhancing the Performance of FRP-strengthened Concrete Beams under Fire and Harsh Environment Exposures'.
The proposal investigates the strength and behaviour of externally strengthened reinforcing concrete (RC) beams with fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) laminates under such severe exposures. 
Dr Rami Hawileh, associate professor in Civil Engineering, is the Lead Principal Investigator for the research, while Dr Jamal Abdalla, professor in Civil Engineering, is the Principal Investigator.

QNRF AWARDS TWO RESEARCH PROPOSALS TO GRADUATE STUDENTS

Awarded Projects Relate To The Energy And Environment Pillar of the Qatar National Research Strategy

/ Categories: Press Releases 15187
Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), a member of Qatar Foundation Research and Development (QF R&D), has announced the winners of the third cycle of its Graduate Student Research Award (GSRA) programme. The two winning proposals, awarded to researchers pursuing doctorates at Qatar University, will commence in September 2015. 
Aligned with the pillars of the Qatar National Research Strategy (QNRS), both of the proposals fall under the Energy and Environment Pillar.  Shoaib Mallick, advised by Dr Farid Touati, is pursuing a project entitled ‘Integrated Acoustoelectronic Sensors for sensing of saline water vapour in natural gas flow’, while Abdul Mannan Rauf, advised by Dr Atif Iqbal, is pursuing a project entitled ‘Development of a novel multilevel unified power controller (M-UPC) for smart grid applications’.
By investing in cutting-edge research, QNRF is enhancing a scientific culture that supports Qatar Foundation (QF) on its mission to build Qatar’s innovation and technology capacity; helping the nation develop into a hub of research excellence through QF’s Science and Research Pillar QF

Texas A&M at Qatar Mathematician Offers Theory on What Happened to MH370

/ Categories: In the Media 7691
The plight of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (MH370) is one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history, but an interdisciplinary research team led by Texas A&M University at Qatar mathematician Goong Chen has theorized the ill-fated plane plunged vertically into the southern Indian Ocean in March 2014.
The researchers' computer simulations lead to the forensic assertion that a 90-degree nosedive explains the lack of debris or spilled oil in the water near where the plane is presumed to have crashed. The research was the cover story in the April 2015 issue of Notices of the American Mathematical Society (see the team's paper here.)
Chen is an applied mathematician teaching and researching at Texas A&M at Qatar who has been a faculty member

Challenge 22 announces list of 18 finalists for innovation award

With only two weeks until the final event on 15 June, 18 finalists have been chosen from 400 applications submitted to the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) for the highly successful first cycle of Challenge 22.

Throughout the first phase of Challenge 22, 31 semi-finalists were each assigned a mentor from institutions around Qatar to support them in taking their two-page proposal to a full detailed submission.
Those applications have been carefully reviewed and processed, leaving the 18 applicants who have demonstrated the greatest capacity to deliver an innovative idea that could leave a lasting legacy.  
Fatma Al-Nuaimi, Legacy Senior Manager at the SC said: “Our partners and mentors were crucial in enabling the final 18 applicants to enter this exciting phase of the competition. The level of applications from all those remaining is extremely high, so it’s certainly not going to be an easy decision for the judging panel.”
