      Basim K Jerw, Nidal M. Hussein, " Management of Multi-Lane Highways in Jordan (Case Study), " , "Jordan Journal of Civil Engineering",Vol.,No., Jordan University of Science and Technology, , 01/30/2018 Abstract:
      Transportation industry is basically a service sector component. It is of important concern for traffic engineers and planners to understand and evaluate the quality of service provided by transport facilities. Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), with all its revisions since 1950, is the pioneer document in this area. It quantified the concept of capacity for a transport facility and laid the foundations for estimating the level of service (LOS) being provided by that facility to its users. This study is concerned with traffic and highway management through evaluating and improving a multi-lane highway in Jordan. It was conducted on Amman–Jerash multi-lane rural highway as a case study. The highway is considered as a major arterial highway with high traffic volume in Jordan. The traffic data was collected from the government records at several departments in the Ministry of Public Works and Housing during summer in the year 2014. HCS-2000 and HCS-2010 software were used to evaluate the level of service (LOS) for the existing condition (year 2014), short-term condition (year 2019) and mid-term condition (year 2024). The evaluation shows that some of the highway segments are operating at LOS-E or LOS-F for short-term and mid-term conditions. The highway segments that operated at LOS-E or LOS-F for short-term or mid-term conditions were improved by modifying the geometric and traffic conditions in order to operate the highway on better LOS, such as LOS-C or LOS-D. Management flow diagrams were prepared to help decision makers make use of a guide planning program for all rural multi-lane highways in Jordan Download

      Nidal M. Hussein, " Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Potential of Jordan's Utility Scale Wind and Solar Projects " , "Jordan Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering",Vol.,No., Jordan Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, , 09/30/2016 Abstract:
      Jordan’s high reliance on foreign energy sources forced the country to reconsider its energy consumption policies and address the issue of reliance on international energy markets for direct imports. Moreover, renewable energy sources offer important environmental, social and economic benefits. Wind and Solar energy, in particular, carries a very good potential in solving the energy problem in Jordan, diversify its energy supplies and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. This paper focuses on the Green House Gas (GHG) emission reduction associated with the implementation of Jordan energy strategy's solar and wind projects. Four different scenarios were investigated based on the replaced traditional fuel type used for electricity generation that the proposed project will replace. The study shows that the proposed solar and wind project will result in a significant reduction of the country's projected greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 1.93 – 3.21 mega tons of CO2e annually.

      The densities and viscosities of ten binary mixtures of 1-propanol, 1-pentanol, 1-heptanol, 1-nonanol, and 1-undecanol have been measured over the entire composition range at temperatures of (293.15 and 298.15) K. The experimental data were employed to test the predictive capabilities of viscosity

      An experimental research was conducted to investigate the improvement in the engineering characteristics of a cohesive soil after being mixed with gradual increments of sand. To verify the above purpose, several laboratory tests were performed for both the original and mixed soils. These tests wer
