A student from the Department of Building & Construction Engineering gain a master's degree in the resistance, stiffness and compressibility of gypsum soil

The Department of Building and Construction Engineering at the University of Technology awarded a Master's degree with distinction to the student Bassma Ali Dawood for her thesis entitled "Resistance, Hardness and Compression of Unsaturated Gypsum Soil during Moisture and Immersion" in the discussion held at the Graduate Studies Hall of the Department.
The discussion committee consisted of Prof. Hussein Humaid of the Department of Building Engineering at the University of Technology as Chairman of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Mustansiriya and M. Qassem Abdul Karim, At the Technological University.
This study investigates the behavior of gypsum soils by studying the effect of suction on volumetric variation and the collapse index and the study of the effect of factors on the anaerobic properties such as the initial conditions, the date of stress, the direction of flow and the amount of loads added.
Three types of gypsum soil were examined in this study, sandy gypsum soil from various parts of Iraq. A series of crash tests were carried out using the standard "double and double crash test".
The study showed that the collapse index, soil sufficiency and soil shear resistance were affected by the initial conditions of soil "water content and dry density". The results showed that the good soil gradient tends to collapse more than the soil of the gradient paragraph under the same initial conditions.
