Faculty of Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering, University of Tripoli, was established in 1961 in the name of the “Faculty of Higher Technical Studies” within the program of scientific and technical cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO. Thus, this makes it the first engineering college in Libya. In 1967, it was included to the University of Libya under the name of the Faculty of Engineering. In 1972, the Faculty of Petroleum Engineering established. However, it then was then included to the Faculty of Engineering, and elements from the Faculty of Science, University of Tripoli in 1973. In 1978, the Faculty of Nuclear and Electronic Engineering was created. In 1985 the Faculty of Petroleum Engineering was merged with the Faculty of Engineering within the framework of linking the colleges and higher institutes with engineering research centers. The Faculty of Nuclear and Electronic Engineering was then added to the Faculty of Engineering in 1988.


The Faculty of Engineering has a pioneering role in the scientific career, its role is increasing significantly in line with the technical development, especially in the fields of communication and informatics engineering. In addition, it also following new developments with their applications in the engineering sector, along with permanent and renewable energy, modern methods of construction and architecture and their environmental impacts. In response to this development, the Faculty of Engineering undertook changes in its educational curricula and academic structure by growing from a faculty with four departments since its inception to become a group of thirteen departments in order to meet the desires and requirements of the Libyan society and to achieve its goals and aspirations for progress. Accordingly, the study system in the Faculty has evolved from the academic year system to term-based system.


The expansion of the academic fields in the Faculty undoubtedly requires expansions in the facilities that accommodate the increasing numbers of students which have reached twelve thousand in recent years. This development will include halls, laboratories and other advanced capabilities and equipment, including computers and research measuring devices.


The Faculties consists of the following departments: Department of Civil Engineering - Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering - Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering - Department of Computer Engineering - Department of Architecture and Urban Planning - Department of Petroleum Engineering - Department of Chemical Engineering - Department of Geological Engineering - Department of Mining Engineering - Department of Aeronautical Engineering - Department of Naval Engineering and Ship Architecture - Department of Nuclear Engineering - Department of Materials and Mineral Engineering - Department of Engineering Management "Postgraduate studies".


These departments carry out their specialized scientific tasks in accordance with the relevant laws, regulations and decisions, which include in their entirety:


-          Academic supervision of students in terms of registration, teaching and evaluation.

Influence of Design Tip Speed Ratio and Rated Wind Speed on Energy Yield of Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

Abstract Wind turbines are the means of converting wind energy into electrical energy. It is not unexpected that certain brands of horizontal wind turbines are optimally designed for certain wind speed regimes prevailing at certain sites. It has been the objective of this study to find out whether it is possible to design a wind turbine that is more suitable for a site of lower annual mean wind speed such as the western coast of Libya. In achieving this objective, use was made of a typical wind turbine aerodynamic design and performance analysis procedure together with actual wind speed data recorded at the city of Misurata.Based on the annual wind energy yield obtained from different designs of wind turbines having different rated wind speeds and different blade design tip speed ratios, this study indicates that the decrease of the rated wind speed leads to a continuous increase of annual energy yield as well as an increase of the cost of the wind turbine. Therefore the optimum value of rated wind speed for this site may only be determined as a compromise between added wind energy yield and added cost. Moreover, for any given rated wind speed this study indicates that a blade design tip speed ratio equal to six seems to be the optimum value for the given site.

Structural Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Beams Incorporating Waste Plastic Straws

The behavior of reinforced concrete beams containing fibers made of waste plastic straws (WPSs) under the three point bending test is examined. The e ect of WPS fiber addition on the compressive and split tensile strength is reported. Four concrete mixes were prepared. The control mix PS-0 had a proportion of 1 cement: 1 sand: 2 coarse aggregate and a water cement ratio of 0.4. In the other three mixes PS-0.5, PS-1.5 and PS-3, 0%, 0.5%, 1.5% and 3% of WPS fiber (by volume) was added respectively. The results show that at 0.5% WPS, there is slight increase in compressive strength. However, beyond 0.5% addition, a decrease in compressive strength is observed. The split tensile strength shows a systematic increase with the addition of WPS fibers. The reinforced concrete beams containing WPS fibers show higher ductility as demonstrated by the larger ultimate tensile strain and ductility index (Du/Dy). There is a tendency to have more fine cracks with the presence of WPS fibers. arabic 9 English 76
