A Bridge Towards Knowledge
In Civil Engineering Department, the students can choose the Capstone project related to the different disciplines of Civil Engineering. The following are examples of the projects offered to our students:
​- Structures and Materials Projects
Project Title (1):
Structural Analysis and Design of a Reinforced Concrete Residential/Commercial Building

Project Description:

A five story reinforced concrete school building is to be designed in this project. The process starts at the architectural plans of the building, which are used to determine the locations of center lines. These locations used to build the geometric skeleton/model using the structural analysis and design software Bentley STAAD.Pro. The loads acting on the building are calculated in accordance with the Jordanian Code of Loads and Forces, 2006. A suitable slab system is chosen and modeled in the STAAD.Pro file already built. Supports, preliminary cross-sectional and material properties and assigned to all structural elements. Load combinations in accordance with the ACI Code 2014 are applied to the structure. A 3D structural analysis is carried out in order to obtain the forces acting on all structural elements. These forces are then used to design the structural elements of the building. Samples of calculations for the design of all structural elements such as slabs, beams, columns and footings are presented and compared to the automated design results obtained using the software STAAD.Pro. Structural detailing of all structural elements are presented.

Project Title (2):

Sustainability Studies in Material and Construction Engineering

Project Description:

This graduation project covers an experimental procedure designed to investigate the effect of certain modifications/alterations/substitution to the constituents of an ordinary concrete mix to produce a more environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions. The material and mechanical properties of a reference concrete mix are studied in comparison with those of identical concrete mixes, but with a substituted constituent in each. The purpose of such study is to come up with a concrete mix, with substituted component(s), that can help in solving environmental or sustainability problems, without adversely affecting the strength and durability characteristics of the resulting concrete.

​- Highway and Transportation Project

Project Title:

Design of a Highway or a Recreational road that Connects Between Two Locations in Jordan

Project Description:

The decision to plan and construct a new road whether it is an urban road, rural roads and/or highways and recreational roads are usually based on many factors among which are; the necessity and the need for a new road. While the selection of a particular location depends on; topography, soil characteristics, environmental factors and economic factors. The data required for the decision process are usually obtained from different types of surveys, depending on the factors being considered.

​- Water and Environmental Engineering Project

Project Title:

Design and Development of Sustainable Wastewater Treatment Plant for the city of Aqaba – Jordan/ South Amman – Jordan

Project Description:

  • The project will include the following tasks
  • Site selection (minimum of two alternatives)
  • Design capacity estimation.
  • Wastewater characterization (volumetric flow and composition).
  • Preliminary treatment plant design (treatment unit selection).
  • Environmental Impact scoping.
  • Sustainable elements in new city development.
  • Elements of environmentally friendly urban planning of the new city.
