Dr. Ahmed Salih Mohammed
Dr. Ahmed Salih Mohammed
Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering
American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS)

In the past 15 years, his work branched out into the field of applied as well as theoretical engineering. Additionally, he has established a research track in the area of modeling and simulation dealing with extremely complex problems in the oil and gas and Civil Engineering fields. Receiving excellent research certificates at UALR and the University of Houston. His consider research contribution extraordinary given the short time that he has been in the petroleum engineering field. he has successfully completed PhD requirements at the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department-University of Houston-Houston-Texas in fall 2014. His thesis was titled “Characterization and Modeling of Polymer-Treated and Nano-Particle Modified Sulfate Contaminated Soils, Drilling Muds, and Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids under Groundwater”. He joined the Civil Engineering and Environmental department at the University of Houston in August 2010 as a PhD student. As part of his PhD Dissertation, he had researched in the areas of petroleum engineering, materials engineering and geotechnical engineering. He is cutting edge research were in the areas of development of smart cement for oil well application related to preventing the disaster that we had in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. he had also developed smart drilling muds for application in the petroleum and geotechnical fields and integrated the advances in the areas of nanotechnology, polymer technology and material technology to modify the smart cement, drilling muds and expansive clays. Part of his research in the area of geotechnical engineering was on controlling the expansion in clays using polymers. Expansive clays are causing major infrastructural damages in many parts of the U.S. including Houston, Dallas and Denver. The polymer treatment method developed by him will be very effective in controlling the expansion in clays. His research was focused on the experimental studies and mathematical modeling of the performance of the smart cement, smart drilling mud and polymer treated expansive clay. he has developed several mathematical models to predict the behaviour of smart cement, smart drilling mud and polymer treated expansive clays. He has also developed models to predict the curing, rheological properties and piezoresistive behaviour of smart cement. He has also developed a new model to predict the rheological behaviour of drilling muds. The refereed journal publications are in Petroleum Science and Engineering, Geotechnical and Geological Engineering and ASTM Testing and Evaluation. His research work was also presented at the Offshore Technology Conferences in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 where there were about 100,000 attendees from around the world. His research work was also presented at the American Association of Drilling Engineers, Center for Innovative Grouting Materials and Technology and Texas Hurricane Center of Innovative Technology Conferences. Receiving an outstanding Teaching Assistant certificate in the Department of Civil engineering at the University of Houston, Houston-TX. He has provided the outstanding researcher in his endeavour and plays a crucial role in applied research in civil and petroleum engineering fields to help save lots of money and increase public safety. His expertise in experimental research and mathematical modelling, when combined with teaching ability, makes him a very unique person in the Civil Engineering field in the U.S.
