A Master's thesis at the Faculty of Engineering discussed the experimental behavior of screw links within low-thick steel plates after temperatures Rise, by Qahtan Adnan Suleiman.

The discussion session which was headed by the University's Assistant for Scientific Affairs, Dr. Amer Mohamed Ibrahim, included an examination of the links of thin carbon steel screws as well as coupons. The study used coupons to find mechanical properties (submission stress, final stress, elasticity factor) and adopted samples to find the final load, type of failure, axial displacement, and transverse displacement.

Results showed that physical change after exposure of steel to essentially high temperatures appears in the thickness, and the submission stress, final stress, and elasticity coefficient of heated steel decrease as the heating duration increases.
