A lecturer from Civil Engineering Department at UOT publishes a paper in an international journal

Lecturer Ziad Majeed Abed from Civil Engineering Department at UOT, published a scientific paper titled: ((Investigating the Various Sustainable Variables of Composite Ferrocement Mortar Using Residual Rock Wool Fibers))

In the American Journal ((Materials in Civil Engineering)), which is published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), that has four year impact factor of more than 3 and is classified within the Clarifate and Scopus Q1 containers.

In this paper, it is studied the effect of using rock wool fibers remnants on the ferrocement properties. Rock wool (made from basalt) was used as a partial substitute for fine aggregates in different proportions to study its effect on the different properties of the virus and to explore the possibility of producing sustainable cement concrete. It has been an improvement in compressive strength, bending strength and absorption despite consideration of sustainability in the materials used in the research.
