A team consisting of Prof. Dr. Muhammad Shaker Mahmoud Al-Shakraji and Eng. Shaima Mahmoud Badr from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Kufa, in cooperation with Dr. Ali Akhtarbor from Ferdowsi University in Iran, published a scientific paper entitled:
Estimation of Capillary Rise in Unsaturated Gypseous Sand Soils
In the scientific journal Pollack Periodica, which is located within the Scopes containers, it has a Q3 rating and an impact factor of 0.26.
The researchers pointed out that the research provides a practical and simulated study of the hair height characteristic and the factors affecting it in sandy soils in the holy city of Najaf, as this feature is considered one of the most important factors affecting groundwater pollution due to irregular landfills. As it is known that the leakage of pollutants into the groundwater causes pollution of that water, which may be used later for irrigation and animal watering. After conducting all field and laboratory tests for three different areas of the city, a practical and mathematical model was developed and the results were compared with other research in addition to suggesting possible solutions.
