A joint research by Asst. Prof. Ali Mihsen Al-Bayati and Asst. Prof. Muthana Sadiq Al-Kafaji, from the Department of Facilities and Water Resources at the Faculty of Engineering, the UOK, was published in “Asian Transactions Eng. Journal”.
The research was entitled “Study of Energy Flow Dispersion in Semicircle Steps”.
It included a study of the runway in three different cases: horizontal, concave and convex.
The researcher concluded that the concave case scored highest in the rate of energy flow dispersion, where it reached a rate of 88%. Thus, this runway is used in the discharge of flow in cases of floods through dams.
