Anbar Journal for Engineering Sciences, 2011, Volume 4, Issue 1, Pages 1-16

This research focuses on studying the speed flow density relationships which are considered the fundamental traffic flow relationships. The objective of the present study is to predict statistical models represent these relationships depending on a field survey data collected from Al-Thirthar road in Falluja city.Data were collected by using video-recording technique. The required data were abstracted, analyzed, grouped, and processed using computer programs developed for this purpose. Standard statistical analysis techniques were used to examine and analyze the observed data.FWASIM simulation traffic software program was used to verify the predicted traffic stream models, while the obtained results were presented in this research. To test the validity and reliability of the model, the output results of the predicated model were compared with the output data obtained from FWASIM model using similar input data and segment geometry. The comparison leads to consider that the developed regression model may be used to evaluate the performance of urban streets in Falluja city.

Using three-phase synchronous generators basic units in power plants, the main source for feeding alternating current. The electromagnetic force (e.m.f) given by these generators depend mainly on the number of pairs of poles in the Member excitement and speed of rotation cycles of the generator. Since the number of pairs of electrodes are part of the structural arrangement of generator will not change due to overload, but it will be the adoption of frequency only on the speed with which revolves where the generator. The power transformers are the heart's main power plants and power transmission and delivery to the consumer and based on the work of the converted electric depends on electromagnetic induction, so the performance of work directly related to the frequency in which they operate. It is through this research will be identified on the behavior of each of the born Synchronous and transferred electrical in the case of low frequency. This is done checks of laboratory and compared to examine the system simulation through the language of MATLAB has been done to change the frequency and noting the effect on each of the power factor, efficiency and organization of voltages for each of the converted and born Synchronous and show results in the form of charts.

Anbar Journal for Engineering Sciences, 2011, Volume 4, Issue 1, Pages 47-61

In General, original reactive powder concrete (RPC) consists of a superplasticized cement mixture with silica fumes, steel fiber and ground fine sand (150-600 ىm). The main purpose of the present work is to produce and study some mechanical properties of lightweight reactive powder concrete using a superplasticized cement mixture with high reactivity metakaolin (HRM) instead of silica fume, steel fiber (with different ratios ) with ground fine sand (150-600 ىm) and light weight material called (Perlite ) also with different ratios .This investigation was carried out using several tests, these tests were compressive strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity, density and absorption, and performed for specimens at ages of 3, 7, 28 days, respectively. The tests results were compared with a reference mix. The experimental results shows that , with different ages, (for constant Perlit ratio for 0% to 10% as additional cementtitious materials) addition of 1% steel fiber will improve about (8.3%-10% , 3.2%-11%and 0.25%- 8%) for compressive strength , modulus of rupture, and modulus of elasticity respectively, and increase density, absorption about (0.8%-1.8%,4.5%-8.2%) respectively. Also an increase of steel fiber ratio to 2% will improve about (16.5%-20.3%, 9.0%-17%, and 1.7%-11.5%) for compressive strength , modulus of rupture and modulus of elasticity respectively, and increase density, absorption about (1.7%-2.3% , 7.3%-8.3%) respectively. For same steel fiber ratio about 0% to 2%, increasing Perlite ratio to 2.5% will decrease about (17.3%-18.8%, 9.5%-15.5%, 4.4%-16.6%, and 4.98% - 6.9%) for compressive strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity and density respectively and increase absorption to about (55.5% - 66.5%). Increasing the ratio to 5% will also make a decrease of about (36%-36.77%, 33.7%-37%, 16.5%- 21.88%and 15.91%-19.74%) for compressive strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity and density respectively and increase absorption for about (106%- 110.5%) . Increasing the ratio to 10% will also decrease about (45.98%-47.2%, 46.5-54.2%, 30.6%- 35.57%and 19.4%-23.36%) for compressive strength, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity and density respectively and increase absorption about(183%- 192.6%). To produce structural lightweight concrete, the tests results show that the optimum steel fiber is 1% by volume and optimum Perlite ratio is 2.5% by weight of cement as additional materials.

An experimental study is carried out to compare the thermal performance of a sintered powder metal wick heat pipe. Pure water and absolute ethanol are used as two different working fluids. The pipe is made of copper with 300 mm length, 14 mm diameter, and 1.0 mm wall thickness. The wick is made of copper powder. All the experiments are accomplished and the heat pipe is at the horizontal position (è=0o). The heat flux changed within the range (2.8 -13.13) kW/m2, while all other conditions remained constant. The results show that the thermal performance of the heat pipe is better when water is the working fluid, where the operating temperature and the thermal resistance of the heat pipe are lower when the water is the working fluid.

This paper describes a numerical method for calculating the temperature distribution and latent heat storage (LHS) in the treated wall (TW) and non-treated wall (NTW). The developed method was assumed that the outer cement layer (Iraqi wall) enveloping the external wall of building and houses are contains paraffin wax as a phase change material (PCM). (25%) is the volume percentage of paraffin wax is mixed with cement which forming a treated layer. A comparison results between the (TW) and (NTW) has been done. The paper presents a simple calculation of case study for air-conditioning in two walls type of residential building. The outer solar air temperatures as function of day time are considered for a hot day in summer (July) for Baghdad city. The aim of this paper was to obtain physical validation of the numerical results produced from using developed FORTRAN program. This validation was obtained through a comparison of numerical solution of two different wall compositions exposed to the same external and internal load conditions. The calculations on transient heat transmissions across different walls were conducted. It was found that when using the (TW) with (PCM) produces lower surface and heat flux towards the cooling space with respect to (NTW).
