Introduction Courses

The Space Research Laboratory (SRL) of Khajeh Nasir Toosi University of Technology is one of the research centers of Iran engaged in the space research and education. The lab has been successful in developing new ideas and in producing high-tech products in the field of space technology. One of the long-term objectives of the lab is to level up the young generation especially students’ space knowledge. Accordingly, one of the main areas of the Space Research Laboratory’sactivity is to promotethe space concepts and discussions among the students before entering into university. Such training courses have been running since more than 5 years ago entitled “Training Workshop for Introduction to the Space Science and Technology”. A group of graduate students and graduates of Master Degree are employed to hold the workshops; so the courses are of very high efficiency. Some 350 workshops have already been held; and more than 30 educational center and 1500 students have been enjoyed the laboratory’s facilities.

To enhance the quality of the trainings; the SRL has applied a set of its facilitiesas follows

School Vacuum Simulator

This simulator is composed of a vacuum chamber, a motor suckers and some valves. Five different experiment recipes have been developed for this device; using such experiments, the concepts of vacuum and the quality of its effect on the physical phenomena may be taught to students. The lack of pressure and a material environment, the quality of sound and light transfer in vacuum, and transfer of electric current in vacuum are of such cases .

Weightlessness Simulator

This simulator is composed of a launching pad, imaging rack, and electromagnets. Using this simulator and its four designed experiments, the concept of the weightlessness conditions are simulated for the students.

 Magnetic Field Simulator

This simulator is used to simulate a magnetic field; by which the usage of the magnetic field in the control subsystem of the satellite situation, as well as the nature of Earth’s magnetic field is explained for the students .

In this experiment, a maquette of a space satellite is located within the simulator’s magnetic field space to be influenced by the simulated field so that the students can observe how the satellite operate in the real conditions of space, then the necessary concepts are explained by the teachers and transferred to the students.

scientific abilities

. The use of scientific abilities of graduates and students in the field of aerospace

Employing the knowledge of its scientific staff

the Laboratory transfers the basic concepts in the field of satellite, the space carrier and the space environment to the students. For this purpose, the SRL also employs all its facilities including a maquette of satellite, a maquette of lunch vehicle motor and a 3-D movie play system.

practical experiments

The use of practical experiments and training aids

SRL benefits from training aids

SRL benefits from training aids aiming at the better transfer of the aerospace concepts to the students. Observing the procedures of the experiment closely and even by reviewing the experiment’s recorded film; the students may communicate with the process of the experiment and obtain the necessary knowledge. A part of designed and built training aid devices in laboratory of space research are: 1) School Vacuum Simulator: This simulator is composed of a vacuum chamber, a motor suckers and some valves. Five different experiment recipes have been developed for this device; using such experiments, the concepts of vacuum and the quality of its effect on the physical phenomena may be taught to students. The lack of pressure and a material environment, the quality of sound and light transfer in vacuum, and transfer of electric current in vacuum are of such cases .
