Award a master’s degree


Materials Engineering Department at the University of Technology awarded a master’s degree to the student Saja Odeh Abdel-Zahra, Department of Materials Engineering / University of Technology, for her thesis in the field of reducing environmental pollution and tagged

"Evaluation of the corrosion behavior of a thermally sprayed coating layer on low carbon steel for marine applications"

Where the discussion took place in the Graduate Studies Hall in Building C in the department on Thursday 17/11/2022 at 9:00 A.M, and the discussion committee consisted of Messrs.


  1. Assist. Prof. Dr. Kadhum M. Shabeeb (Chairman).
  2. Assist. Prof. Dr. Ahmed A. Zainulabdeen (member).
  3. Assist. Prof. Dr. Bahaa Sami Mahdi (member).
  4. Assist. Prof. Dr. Fadhil A. Hashim (member and supervisor).
  5. Assist. Prof. Dr. Niveen J. Abdulkader (member and supervisor).


As well as the scientific evaluation of the thesis by Assist. Prof. Dr. Nabaa S. Radi/ Babylon University/ College of Materials Engineering, and Lec. Dr. Mofeed A. Jaleel/ University of Technology/ Department of Applied Sciences and a linguistic evaluation by Lec. Dr. Nassier A. Nassir/ University of Technology/ Materials Engineering Department.

After the discussion committee recorded its observations on the thesis, which were divided between explanation and correction, the student’s defense of her work, and the end of the discussion, the committee decided to evaluate the thesis and decided to grant the student a master’s degree in dentistry with a full grade.


The aim of the study was to evaluate the samples using 3.5% NaCl for metallic coatings composed of zinc powder, which were deposited on a low carbon steel substrate using the flame thermal spraying technique.  Corrosion and SEM, AFM, XRD, FESEM, thickness, adhesion, visual tests, microhardness were examined, and the results revealed that the corrosion rate of the sample was reduced (0.0102 mm/y)B2 (velocity=75,distance=125 ,powder feed rate=10) .
