Use of Modern Technology to Develop Investment Housing Projects in Iraq


The problem of housing is one of the most important problems in Iraq, especially with the increase in the rate of population growth which is one of the highest rates in the world and after the great destruction that happened in Iraq because of wars and terrorist acts, and here begins to think about the real solutions of this crisis using modern technology and taking into account the feasibility of using modern construction materials compared to the traditional method of construction.

Investors are seriously considering changing the traditional building style and transition to modern building materials to increase quality, win a time, ease of installation and achieve dimensional consistency with ease of internal and external finishing work. The hot weather in Iraq requires real attention to the issue of thermal insulation of buildings and therefore can use the advantage of modern materials to increase thermal insulation and reduce in the energy consumption. This article sheds light on the investment housing projects in Baghdad city.

Effective Friction Angle Of Deltaic Soils In The Vistula Marshlands

1 Introduction 1.1 Aim of research This research is focused on effective angle of internal friction and compares the results for the Vistula Marshlands muds and peats with similar soft soils. Effective shear strength parameters of the deltaic soils near Gdańsk are measured in drained and undrained triaxial compression tests and estimated with the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) method using the Cone Penetration Tests (CPTU) sounding. The observed dilative-contractive soil behaviour is discussed taking into account the CPTU classification chart

Slurry shield tunneling in soft ground. Comparison between field data and 3D numerical simulation

1 Introduction During the past decade, pressurized-face tunnel-boring machines (TBMs), such as slurry shield, have established itself as a proven technology. It is characterized by safety, excavation speed, and minimal impacts on the surrounding environment ( Xie et al., 2016 ). It is usually used in urban areas where the control of ground movements is an essential task in the design of shallow tunnels. However, shield tunneling inevitably causes some ground movements that can have adverse effects on both buried and aboveground infrastructures and buildings

Application of The New Shape Crushing Plate in Machine Crushing Processes

consumption of the technological systems of minerals processing. The technological process should also be matched to the material properties to ensure maximum effects in terms of technology, economy and ecology. The jaw crusher works on the initial stage of the crushing process (the first stage of crushing) in the raw material processing plant. In mining these crushers are used for processing ores, coal and rock materials. The most common crushers used are double toggle (such as Blake type) or single toggle jaw crusher (Dalton type). In this work, studies on Blake type
