دراسة بعض الخصائص الهندسية لربة الاهوار (هور الحمار)
Keywords: marshes, collapse soil, soft soil, vane shear strength
AbstractThe marshes are very important areas in iraq , in spite of that ,the geotechnical studies
are still very limited . Two locations which have been selected for study in this research ; al
fohod and al hammar region .
The engineering properties of the soil have been studied and focused on the collapse
properties and strength of soil , the tests performed on the soaked soil that the water
reflowing away from it during the summer time, we expect these regions to develop in the
construction and tourism sides. The results reveal that the soil of the two regions contains high percentage of salts ,although
the soil soaked with water along the winter.
also, it was found that the soil is soft and it is collapse soil and the degree of collapse ranging
from severe to moderate.
