Saturated and dry sandy soils of different densities, shaft vibrating table machine with shear box was used Flexible laminate. Simulation of the local earthquake on the western as well as the international earthquake of El Centro and Kobe in this studying. Experimental tests were carried out on two water tank models It consists of a laminate cut box. The first model is a water tank Equivalent holding tank with water pressure to simulate a water storage tank without hydrodynamic pressure. From the results, it was found that the stability and offset in the directions of (x & z) directions significantly compared to the humidifier bent is equivalent in the second model at all acceleration states. Where is the area of ​​subsidence in subsidence Liquid storage due to the hydrodynamic pressure of saturated sand in the case of El Centro 2.3% and 6.2% in Ali Al Gharbi.






















Prof.Dr.Salah Al-Fatlawi, Head of Supervision and Scientific Research Department at Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research accompanied with Prof.Dr.Ahmed Al-Gabban President of University of Technology and vice-president for scientific affairs Prof.Dr.Haider Dahad and vice-president for administrative affairs Prof.Dr.Hussien Hamad inspected on Tuesday the face examinations in the engineering departments and see the procedures and the types of the examination questions, their difficulty and the plans adopted during the exams, the protective actions as social distancing, wearing masks to avoid pandemic breakout.

Al-Fatlawi praised the efforts of the presidency departments and the examination committees to serve the students and provide all their needs, wishing everyone all the success to serve our country.
