Asist. Prof. Dr. Ali Majeed Khudair from Civil Engineering Department participated in Ph.D. dissertation discussion committee tagged: (Evaluation of the performance of thin asphalt mixtures containing sustainable materials) at Al-Mustansiriya University
Within the framework of cooperation between universities to spread the scientific culture, Asist. Prof. Dr. Ali Majeed Khudair, the director of the Quality Assurance and University Performance Department UOT, in the discussion committee of Ph.D. for the student (Yasser Mahdi Issa) from Engineering College at Al-Mustansiriya University tagged:
(Evaluation of the performance of thin asphalt mixtures containing sustainable materials)
The main objective of this study is to characterize the performance of TAO blends designed in a sustainable superbave method that were evaluated through volumetric and mechanical testing methods and durability to achieve the objectives of this research. Available local materials including asphalt bond 40-50 were used with three types of nominal maximum aggregate volume NMAS is 12.5 mm, 9.5 mm, 4.75 mm and the filler then developed three statistical models using the SPSS program to predict the indirect tensile strength, rut depth, and indirect tensile strength ratio of the domestic TAO that includes specific waste polymers i.e. CRM and LDPE. Therefore, the need for a critical approach to TOA design is highly required to obtain TAO of maximum quality
Engineering College / Al-Mustansiriya University granted a letter of thanks and appreciation to the members of the discussion committee.
