Gypseous soils are soils that contain sufficient quantities of gypsum that are considered collapsible soil. The present study's objective is to predict the shear strength parameters (c, ϕ), collapse potential (CP), and compression index (Cc) from the gypseous soils' physical properties using a wide range of 220 collected data from various published...
Article
Gypsum soils suffer from engineering problems of collapse, which occurs when an increase in moisture causes significant soil deformation in the constructions. There is no sufficient information about the most important physical soil characteristics that affects the shear strength parameters and collapse potential of the gypseous soil, which covers...
Article
ABSTRACT A significant stage in geotechnical engineering is to establish geotechnical properties of soil models to predict the most important soil properties such as unconfined compressive strength (UCS) and compression index (Cc) because they are the main parameters in the state design of the footings, pavements, or stability assessment of existin...
Article
The focus of this research is to develop models for predicting the unconfined compressive strength and compression index (Cc) of clay soils according to Atterberg limits, natural water content, dry density, void ratio, and fine content. The soil unconfined compressive strength (UCS) ranged from 24 to 340 kPa and has been quantified with great preci...

This study aims to investigate the effect of contaminated soil samples with oily wastewater which were taken from Kawergosk refinery (20 km west of Erbil city). Laboratory constant head permeability tests on contaminated soil samples with oily wastewater have been conducted. Also, One-Dimensional (1-D) and Three-Dimensional (3-D) in-situ permeabili...

Measurement of shear wave velocity (Vs) plays a crucial role in ground movements around geotechnical structures such as building foundations in the urban area and tunnels. Basically, measuring Vs often requires when seismic properties of soils are essential to be calculated, such as elastic shear modulus. Multichannel analysis of surface wave (MASW...

To study soil-structure interaction (SSI) and create an exact computer model of soils, geotechnical and geological studies are necessary. Since these investigations are neglected for most projects for various reasons, engineers use the fixed base concept to analyze the structures. This study examines the accuracy and effect of fixed-base concept on...

Soils are the most used construction materials in engineering projects, such as embankments, highways, and railways, in which huge amounts of soil are required. Unfortunately, sometimes, these soils are high expansive clay that makes problems to these projects, and at the same time, there are waste and by-product materials such as limestone powder...

This study investigates procedures for estimating the empirical relations necessary for predicting swell pressures from natural deposits of high-, medium- and low-expansive soil samples, which were obtained from three locations in Erbil City. These soils are denoted as Soil-1, Soil-2, and Soil-3. Bentonite clay minerals of 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25...

This study was conducted that includes investigating procedures. Firstly, to estimate constitutive parameters included size effect that needed for prediction of free swell strain and swelling pressures. Secondly, to investigate experimentally the size effect of reversible and irreversible components of volume change behavior induced by desiccation...
Article
Samples of natural high, medium and low expansive soils (respectively, designated as Soil-A, Soil-B and Soil-C) were collected from different locations to obtain a wide range of swelling criteria. Soil-B was mixed with 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% bentonite mineral. The swell potentials of the expansive soil samples were measured using standard test m...
Article
Soil is a material most used in the field of civil engineering. High-plasticity clay (CH) in some parts of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, as well as globally, causes noticeable damage to buildings and roads during seasonal changes. In some circumstances, construction on CH cannot be avoided; therefore, soil stabilization is crucial. In this study, w...
Article
The aim of this study was to investigate the size effect of reversible and irreversible components of volume change behaviour of highly expansive and moderately expansive soils experimentally. The soil deformations of small-, largeand extra-large-scale samples were measured during wetting and drying cycles. Accurate dial gauges were used for measur...

This research was aimed to study municipal solid waste landfills leachate parameters for different sanitary landfill designs such as open dumping, anaerobic, and semi-aerobic with various ages in different countries. Landfill leachate characteristics such as pH, electrical conductivity (EC), turbidity, color, ammonia-nitrogen (NH3-N), biochemical o...

Soil and fresh leachate samples were collected from Erbil Landfill Site (ELS), Iraq. ELS is anaerobic landfill opened in 2001. Field permeability test for soil hydraulic conductivity was performed directly in the site. Meanwhile, other examinations for liquid limit, plastic limit, particle size distribution, etc., were conducted at the laboratory....

The present work aimed to determine the risks that formed landfill leachate from anaerobic Erbil Landfill Site (ELS) poses on groundwater source and to observe the effects of disposed municipal solid waste (MSW) on soil properties. The study further aims to fill the gap in studies on the effects of disposed MSW and produced leachate on the groundwa...

The most important test to determine the adequacy of a soil for making bricks is to make bricks and dry them in the sun, Therefore, this study was proposed to find best method to control shrinkage cracks for the green (freshly remolded) bricks. Most brick product companies in Arbil city are using open air-drying in seasonally operated small-scale b...

Abstracts This research involves an analytical study of external stability of a common type of retaining walls called gabion walls. The stability involves checking, sliding, overturning, and bearing capacity of the gabion walls. Many factors like height and inclination of Gabion, back fill soil slope, and surface surcharge are studied in this resea...

This study was conducted to evaluate the engineering behavior of clay bricks stabilized with straw, and check the visibility of using straw as soil stabilizer for brick fabrication. Soil was mixed with straw additive (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5) % by weight. Wet soil bricks were fabricated by a skilled worker. The soil bricks were dried...

The effect of additives, sand and filler (limestone's powder) were investigated in order to improve engineering requirements (strength and durability) of local burned mud bricks (additives; straw and animal wastes) in Arbil City. Soil was mixed by weight with additives (0.0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10.0, 12.5, and 15%). A skilled worker fabricated wet so...
