- Item"Design of The Western Part of Nablus Ring Road" "Moh'd Bin Rashid Al-Maktom Road"(2009) Hakam Aaraj; Qadri Shaheen; Mutaz O'deh; Sameer Abu EishehProper transportation services permit the specialization of industry or commerce, reduce costs for raw materials like building stone, or manufactured goods, and result in lower costs and greater choices for the consumer. Nablus city, one of the main commercial centers in the West Bank, suffers from high congestions in Central Business District (CBD) because it lies between two mountains. Nablus roads are characterized as relatively narrow and long, especially through its limited but highly dense downtown area and center. Nablus city center connects several main roads leading to other roads and towns around. It connects the northern cities (Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqilya, Haifa, etc.) and the southern cities (Ramallah, Jerusalem, Hebron, etc.). The construction of a Ring Road around Nablus is essential for solving the congestions problem in Nablus CBD. Therefore Nablus Municipality has proposed the Ring Road to circle the city from all directions. This project is concerned with the design of the Western Part of Nablus Ring Road. It reviews, analyzes, plans and designs all elements of the road and provides the required data, calculations, and details of the design.

- ItemAlternatives to solve Faisal/Haifa Streets problems(2009) Dina Marwan Abdulhaq; Dima Aquil Qamhiyeh; Sameer Abu EishehAs more and more vehicles crowd the citiess roadways, traffic congestion has an increasingly debilitating effect on our quality of life. Across the West Bank, people, business, the industry, the economy and the environment pay a higher and higher price for mounting congestion through delays, lost opportunities, higher costs, increased accidents, reduced competitiveness, pollution, frustration and much more.Nablus city is a major city located in the central part of North West Bank, connecting the northern governorates with the governorates in the middle and south of the West Bank. Moreover, Nablus City is the center for the villages and refugees camps around it. Figures (1) and (2) present the central location of Nablus city in Palestine and Nablus governorates, respectively. Therefore, traffic that passes through the city is considered to be high. It requires a thorough examination to develop possible solutions to through traffic passing the city center, thorough major projects, rather than traffic management plans, in order to provide the appropriate links for through traffic, considering the available space of the roadway network and to keep at the same time acceptable service operations for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Through traffic passing along ''Faisal Street'' and its western extension of "Haifa Street", they form the basic arterial street across the city. Traffic along the street is rapidly growing due to political, social and economical changes that are happening there. City planners, civil engineers, environmental, politicians and the general population can have a significant impact on how we address traffic congestion. Traffic is a very political and sensitive issue since almost every proposed method of addressing it carries a hefty price tag.

- ItemDesign of Several Foundation Systems For Faculty of Optics(2010) Maysaa Qushou; Sama Ismail; Isam G. JardanehThe lowest part of the structure generally is referred to as the foundation; its function is to transfer the load of the structure to the soil on which it is resting. A properly designed foundation transfers the load throughout the soil without overstressing the soil, both of which cause damage to the structure. Thus, geotechnical and structural engineers who design foundations must evaluate the bearing capacity of soils. Depending on the structure and soil encountered, various types of foundations are used and may be classified in two main groups, namely, shallow foundation and deep foundation. Shallow foundation is simply an enlargement of a load bearing wall or column that makes it possible to spread the load of the structure over larger area of the soil in soil with low load bearing capacity, the size of the foundation requires is impracticably large, in that case, it is more economical to construct the entire structure over a concrete pad, this is called a mat foundation. Deep foundation including pile and drilled shaft foundations are used for heavier structures when great depth is required for supporting the load. Piles are structural members made of timber, concrete, or steel that transmit their load into the subsoil, piles can be divided into two basic categories: friction piles and end bearing piles. In the case of friction piles, the superstructure load is resisted by the shear stress generated along the surface of the pile. In the end bearing pile, the load carried by the pile is transmitted as its tip to a firm stratum. This project will present design of several foundation systems of the Faculty of Optics Building. The Optics Building has seven stories and its plan area is about 1200 m for each story. The structural system is a typical structure of slabs, beams, columns and foundation system to carry columns loads. Columns loads are found by analyzing the structure with Software called SAP 2000 ver. 12. Tributary area method is also used for analysis and comparisons were made between tributary area method and analysis using SAP 2000.

- ItemSpatial and temporal drought analysis in the west bank(2010) Shadi Kalabani; Atyia AltosDrought considered from the most natural hazards that threatened the West Bank water resources and very critical issue to understand. This study aims at assessing the behavior of spatial and temporal drought in the West Bank. In order to study drought, it is important to correlate it with rainfall analysis. Also this study shows the effects and features of drought and discussing them depending on spatial and temporal analysis. The drought changes along West Bank temporally and spatially. Hence the drought features must be considered for all water resources management in the West Bank. Most of formulas of drought prediction are based on statistical analysis, because drought is treated as random and probability is the main way to deal with drought. Rainfall data is an essential element of basic data input to many hydrologic and engineering studies. The West Bank is characterized as a arid to semi-arid region with rainfall varies spatially from one station to another and temporally at specific station on many factors.

- ItemConstruction project management(2012) Hanen Hamaydeh; Hazar Jabbareen; Sajeda Al shaarThe traditional material is a critical problem in our country in term of both duration and cost. For the cost of construction material forms approximately 60% of the total project cost and affect the project duration. Recommending alternatives for cost significant material will reduce total project cost. In construction projects it is very important to reduce projects duration and the cost of labor and material, the main aim in our project to study the current used material locally and suggest alternative economical material; we will focus on plastering material, external cladding, and concrete formwork. We will study the possible alternatives and analyzes their cost impact on total project cost and duration, and we will study alternative material applicability, availability, durability and safety, to be able to recommend economical, practical and safe alternatives for local contractors. And we will study the effect of this material on the design of structure. This will improve building performance and improve cost performance of the construction projects which in turn will be reflected on the entire society welfare. In Graduation project 2, we will test the impact if the possible alternative material on total project cost by conducting cost analysis for a project designed to use common construction material and after using the suggested alternatives of the same project, and redesign the affected parts of the building to check applicability of proposed material. A Residential project will be selected as case study, and alternative material will be tested to check suitability and applicability by redesigning the building considering the selected alternative material. The findings of this project will be recommended to be used by various construction professionals.
