Metal matrix composites with based of Aluminum are considered among the most important ones that are used in complex engineering application for their good properties; including high resistance to weight ratio, low density, and wear resistance.
This work aims to make an Aluminum matrix composite that is reinforced with Tungsten Carbide (WC) particles with constant volumetric ratio of 3% in addition to Graphite particles (Gr) variable volumetric ratios of (0,2,4,6, and 8%) by using powder metallurgical techniques and study the physical, mechanical and wear properties of aluminum. The materials were mixed for 15 minutes using a mechanical mixer, then the mixture was cold compressed to 500 MPa to get samples with 12 mm in diameter, and 6 mm high, then they were sintered at 550 oC for two hours. Some mechanical properties were studied, hardness, compressive strength, wear rate; in addition to the physical properties of volumetric and apparent density, total and apparent porosity, water absorption, and microscopic structure examination.
The results showed that hardness and compressive strength were decreased by 24% and 40%, respectively by increasing the volumetric ratio of the graphite. Furthermore, the minimum wear rate, or maximum strength, was obtained at graphite ratio of 2%, then it increases after that, while the based composite reinforced with tungsten carbide only showed maximum wear rate and minimum resistance. Moreover, the results also showed that there is a proportional relationship between the volumetric and apparent densities in which they decrease when the volumetric ratio of the graphite increases. On the contrary, the total and apparent porosity increase by increasing graphite content, causing increase in water absorption for the hybrid composite.

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, 2017, Volume 10, Issue 4, Pages 115-129

Transport is the most important factor affecting the development of the internal structure of the city. The problem of research is that the increase in the number of cars and especially the lack of reliance on public transport has led to a great momentum on the capacity of the transport network in the city. Offset by the lack of development, expansion and modification of the transport network of the city affects the quality of urban housing of the city as well as economic and social conditions and security conditions led to the imposition of security checkpoints and the closure of many of the streets, crowding the transport network and its impact on the urban development of the city. The objective of the research is to study the historical stages affecting the composition of the transport network and the effect of the geographic factors of Baquba city and its relationship with other cities in terms of the external transport network of passengers and goods. The approach we will adopt in the research is to develop the basic plans of the city which include appropriate solutions for the internal and external transport network of the city and apply it on the ground and not allow random transgressions by enacting laws that limit this overflow and finding appropriate solutions to the phenomenon of population displacement to the city and residential violations on the basic plans of the city and its impact on urban growth..

In this study, the changing in ride height of the car, which is usually arbitrarily been made, has been investigated. Many reasons could be achieved when ride has been increased, but without consideration of the undesired outcomes such as the related aero-dynamical forces effect. In this study, wind tunnel with fixed sedan car model was used. The model was easily allowed changing of the ride height. A range of velocities had been used as well. The General Full Factorial Method and Analysis of Variance were the convenient analytical tools in this study. The results showed that the drag force increased when ride height increased, especially, at the fronted point (stagnation point) which might increase fuel consumption and related pollution..

Effects of blocked streets on the environmental pollution of the city of Baghdad (Neighborhood (909) Eastern Karrada as a case study)

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, 2017, Volume 10, Issue 4, Pages 155-173

The process of blocking streets in the city of Baghdad has had a significant impact on the lives of citizens in several aspects, including psychological, physical, physical and other effects, but the lack of a clear perception of the environmental effects caused by the streets in the city of Baghdad is a problem that must be addressed, The research found that the vehicles are forced to travel long distances in order to reach a certain point instead of going directly to them because of the blocks in the streets of Baghdad.
It has been shown that the movement of these additional vehicles generate a number of problems, including increasing the temperature in the atmosphere of the city of Baghdad as well as air pollution as a result of the increase in emissions of car exhaust gases and also increase pollution noise, and on the other hand, the increase in fuel consumption and consumption of vehicles due to increased distances And the consequent financial burden on the citizen in the first place, in addition to all that loss of time as a result of this additional movement of vehicles.
