Recently, many attempts were made to use steel fiber reinforcement to improve some soil properties. In this research, the effect of steel fibers on the compaction and mechanical properties of cement stabilized soil (silty soil) was studied. Variables such as stabilizer (cement) content, amount and type of steel fibers were studied. Results indicate that the addition of fibers leads to increase in the maximum dry unit weight. On the other hand, a maximum value of unconfined and tensile strength were obtained with the addition of 0.5 % short fiber (FS) and 1.5 % long fiber (FL) respectively.

In this study , Silicon and Aluminum with and without cerium were simultaneously co-deposited by diffusion into austenitic stainless steel (AISI 316L) substrates, by a single-step packcementation process. Cyclic hot corrosion tests were conducted on coated and uncoated austenitic stainless steel alloy with 50wt.% NaCl+50wt.%Na2So4 deposits at 750C° for 120h at 10h cycle. The results show that the hot corrosion resistance of both coated stainless steels, was significantly improved as compared with the uncoated steels. The scale formed on coated stainless steel after oxidation in mixture environment was consisted of NiAl2O4, NiFe2O4 and NiCr2O4. Optical metallography (LOM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD) was used to characterize the resulting coating and cyclic hot corrosion structures.

Portland cement consists of major oxides which include CaO, SiO2, Al2O3 and Fe2O3 as well as minor oxides which include: SO3 , MgO, Na2O and K2O, the last two oxides are called alkalis oxides.
The research aims to study the effect of alkalis oxide ( Na2O+ K2O) on some physical properties of ordinary Portland Iraqi cement (type I) and sulfate - resisting Portland Iraqi cement (type V) provided from (Taslooja Factory) are used in the experimental work. The physical properties of the two types above , which are used in the experimental work, are initial and final setting time, soundness and compressive strength at (3, 7 and 28)days.
The results show that the values of physical properties of type I and type V increase when the alkalis percentage increases up to 0.6 percent, while the value of the physical properties of the two types of cement mentioned above begins to reduce even when the percentage of alkalis still increases.
Through the use of the ordinary Portland cement (type I) and the sulfate resisting Portland cement (type V), it is found that there is a little difference in the value of the physical properties.

This investigation was conducted to assess the efficacy of some environmental conditions of soil specimens stabilized with optimum waste lime content 6%. These conditions are represented by cycles of (wetting-drying-freezing), (wetting-freezing-drying), (drying-wetting-freezing), (drying-freezing-wetting), (freezing-wetting-drying) and (freezing-drying-wetting). The soil specimens were subjected to these conditions, the durability of these specimens is study by knowledge the change in unconfined compressive strength, volume change and loss in weight. The results indicated that the unconfined compressive strength decreases with cycles for all conditions, but for different percentages according to the type condition. Where the condition more effect that starting freezing-drying-wetting. Also the results show that the specimens subjected to cycles of (freezing-drying-wetting) and (wetting-freezing-drying) destroyed at the end of eight cycle, but the specimens were subjected to other conditions destroyed at the end of tenth cycle. The results show that the maximum loss in weight for specimens subjected to cycles starting wetting-freezing-drying, and the maximum value of volume change for cycles starting freezing-drying-wetting. Finally these condition are regarded very severe conditions and effect on durability of soil stabilized.

In this paper, an analytical solution of a tapered bimodular beam has been developed. An Euler-Bernoulli beam theory with shear deformations has been utilized to obtain the solution. The bimodular beams are different from those unimodular beams in having two different moduli of elasticity one in compression and another in tension. A verification for the solution has been performed using FEM analysis with ANSYS. The results of the program were very close the results of the analytical solution presented in this paper.

To control on the operation of sheet metal forming without failure, A diagram is used in which the range accepted, failure and critical deformation range are shown. This diagram is known as the Forming limit diagram. It is considered as one of the important tool to determine the formability of sheet metals. Every sheet metal has its own forming limit diagram which determines its formability, strain limit and the forming regions. In this paper, the forming limit diagrams (FLDs) were experimentally evaluated for low carbon steel sheets with different thickness (0.6, 0.75, 0.85, 1.2mm). The highest limit strain in the forming limit diagram is found in the steel sheet at thickness (1.2mm) and the lowest limits in the steel sheet at (0.6mm), this meaning that the formability improve with increase the thickness of steel sheet. The effect of load punch is higher at biaxial stretch path and the lowest at uniaxial tension path. The load punch is change with different thickness of sheet at the same path. The maximum thinning is found in the biaxial stretch path and the lowest of thinning in plane strain path for all sheets.

The purpose of this paper is to developing a mathematical relationship between the Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) and the compressive strength for concrete specimens subjected to different amounts of exposure of sulfate attack.
The experimental data were collected from a research work by the author using concrete subjected to sulfate exposure and form a literature used an extensive concrete work without sulfate exposure. The sulfate exposures studied were 0%, 3%, and 6% of fine aggregate. It is found that with the same amount of sulfate exposure a clear relationship curve can be drawn to describe the UPV and compressive strength.
This paper proposes the UPV-strength mathematical expression suitable for prediction of the concrete strengths when subjected to sulfate attack.
