Water-related Graduation Projects 

  1. Department of Architecture, South Valley Branch in Aswan

Presenting the project of the students of the Department of Architecture in the Faculty of Engineering at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology, and Maritime Transport, South Valley Branch in Aswan, to His Excellency the Minister, the Governor of Aswan, Major General Ashraf Atiya. The project involves the planning of the Nile Corniche area in the Nasr al-Nuba Center, west of the town of Kalabsha and the village of Abu Hor, to serve the residents of Nasr al-Nuba by establishing infrastructure and providing social, health, and educational services. Furthermore, the project aims to preserve the archaeological heritage of the area while creating a sustainable green resort that is environmentally friendly along the Nile Corniche. The project also includes the establishment of a Nile Cruise Marina and swimming services. This project is under the patronage of His Excellency, the President of the Academy, Professor Dr. Ismail Abdel Ghaffar, and Professor Dr. Atallah Heshad, the Director of the Aswan Branch of the Academy, with the participation of Professor Dr. Yasser Dahab, the Assistant Director of the Branch for Training and Community Service, and Dr. Mohamed Maher and Assistant Professor Mahab Taher from the Department of Architecture in Aswan.

The main goal of the project is building a low-cost renewable-energy-based water filtration mobile unit intended for use in remote areas, mainly for drinking and irrigation requirements. To minimize costs, the water filtration system is powered from a renewable PV resource. Once the primary prototype is implemented, the system requires monitoring for faults in the electrical and water pumping systems, so a surveillance IoT solution should be added as a secondary prototype.

The Project methodology depends on using reverse osmosis (RO) concept to transform safety water into fresh water. Multiple membrane filters have been used to implement the filtration procedures. The filtration process is started by pumping the salty water through the system with the feed pump. The water then passes through the multimedia (sand) filter first to remove the large non-dissolved particles which are around 10-25 micron. The final step before entering the RO filters is to pass the water through a cartridge filter to take down the particle size to lass then 1 micron. The water is then passed to the CCRO system to remove the dissolved salts. The clean water is stored in a tank for later use. The power provided to the pumps are from PV cells powered by solar energy.

The major aim or objective of our project is to provide safe and clean drinking water to those areas which are facing water scarcity problems. In this project, an experimental setup was constructed to extract water from the atmosphere. This project employs dehumidification / condensation technology for extracting water from the humidity present in the air. The extracted water is collected and then filtered through several filters for purification. The purified water can be served for drinking purpose. The working principle is based on cooling via evapora-tion similar to a refrigerator and air conditioner system. The coolant is allowed to flow inside the tube by using pump. Atmospheric air is forced towards the tube by using fans and it hit onto the surface of the condenser tube which decreases the temperature to its due point. As a result the air is condensed into liquid. The condensed air is then filtered for impurities using filters. This AWG system can produce 2 litres of drinking water per hour.

  • Wind operated Humidity Separator

The atmospheric water generator (AWG) extracts water from the humidity present in the air through the process of condensation and purifies it. The atmospheric water generators are divided into two types: production volume rate depending on the size of the application, the target market is bifurcated into residential, commercial, and others.

Due to the presence of varying industrial sectors, rapid growth and awareness of the importance of these devices, Demand for the atmospheric water generator is continuously increasing in the Middle East, Asia Pacific. Furthermore, the rising requirement for sustainable use of the available water resources in countries such as Egypt, KSA, Kuwait, China, Indonesia, and India may have a positive impact on industry growth.
