On Wednesday, May 17th, 2017, Komar Research Center organized a seminar for Dr. Ahmed Salih from University of Sulaimani and University of Houston, Texas. His seminar focused on smart cement and its applications.
Smart cement was modified with iron oxide nanoparticle to have better sensing properties so that the behavior can be monitored at various stages of construction and during the service life of wells. A series of experiments evaluated the piezoresistive smart cement behavior with and without Nano Iron in order to identify the most reliable sensing properties that can also be relatively easily monitored.
