On December 20th , 2016, F12- students of Civil Engineering Department/ Komar University of Science and Technology had a visit to Azady Industries Company for Galvanized and steel frames in Tanjaro Industrial Area 2. The visit aimed to see practically how structural steel sections and galvanized transmission towers are cut, bolted or welded, assembled and put in practical use.

The field trip was managed by CVE department under the supervision of Prof Dr Jalal Ahmed Saeed the instructor of Structural Systems Course which is taken by F12- CVE Students. The chief executive director of the company Engineer Dilshad Muhammed Shakir had accompanied the group of students in order to explain the manufacturing, constructing and installation processes.

Performance of CFT (Concrete Filled Steel Tube) Connection in Seismic Hazard Situation

posted Dec 12, 2016, 10:23 PM by Sardasht Sardar

On November 23rd, 2016 Mr Sardasht Sardar a coordinator of CVE/ Komar university of science and technology held a seminar titled "Performance of CFT (Concrete Filled Steel Tube) Connection in Seismic Hazard Situation".

The Seminar Aims to explain the performance of composite structure under varying seismic hazard situation. He clarified that as the application of performance-based seismic design begins to get root, new structural concepts need to  be developed. Concrete filled steel tube (CFT) can be considered as a typical construction hybrid system since CFT combines both the advantages of ductility associates with steel structure with the stiffness of concrete components. 

The typical welded steel moment frame connection used in seismically active zone failed to provide the expected ductility. Recently, bolted connections have become popular among other types of connections.  Providing robustness of the connection would be increased by replacing bolted rods with shape memory alloy (SMA) bars.

Finally, the appreciation letter upon the success of the seminar had been awarded by Dr Jalal a Vise President of Academic Affairs.

On December 6, 2016, a competition was held between students from the Department of Civil Engineering and students from the Department of Computer Engineering as part of the constantly ongoing entertainment activities at KUST. Five students from each department triggered the event by asking such questions as Zhiran Taha, Ayub Qadir, Soma Jaza, Evan Arsalan and Basak Mohammed from civil engineering as Rawezh Yasin, Wlyan Kamaran, Mohammed Ismail, Lawk Mohammed and Ahmed Hussein from Computer Engineering also asked theirs.  The competition commenced with a number of general questions on various disciplines including science, mathematics, space and Kurdistan.  Every participant who answered a question correctly earned 2 points.
The one-hour competition engaged 200 students from all departments.  The students said that they had great fun participating and that it was both an entertaining and an educating experience at the same time. The conclusion of the event met a big round of applause as the Civil Engineering students won the day with a total score of 21 points, leaving the Computer Engineering students one and a half points short of getting even.
