The Department of Civil Engineering discusses a Master thesis on "The effect of suction on the behavior of gypsum soil"


The Department of Civil Engineering discussed a master’s degree in the field of geotechnical engineering for the student (Ali Abdel Kazim Jassem) on December 26, 2019 and on the postgraduate hall in the department for his research tagged: "Effect of Section on the Behavior of Gypseous Soil"


The discussion committee consisted of

1- Prof. Mohamed Youssef Fattah as president

2- Prof. Dr. Qassioun Saad Eddin Muhammad as a member

3- Dr. Mekki Kamel Mohsen as a member .

4- Prof. Dr. Hussein Hamid Karim as a member and supervisor

5- Prof. Dr. Qasim Abdul-Karim Jasem  as a member and supervisor


The results of the research showed that there is a significant effect of the density of dry soil on the relationship between negative porous pressure and water content.

The results showed that the negative porous pressure change from its highest level at the initial porous pressure (139000 kPa) is influenced by several factors and the most important of these factors: the depth of groundwater, the dry density of the soil, and the applied vertical stress.

The special tensile scale used in this research also revealed that the deformation of the soil in the moisture path lies in the average absorption range (i.e. between 10 and 1000 kPa).
