KOTA SAMARAHAN, 12 November : On 5th to6th November 2014, after four weeks of extensive laboratory and site work, UNIMAS sent a group of three third year civil engineering students (Er Hauzhi – leader, Nurul Izzati bt. Ahmat @ Ibrahim and Phillip ak. Owen), to compete in the first National Geofest 2014 competition organized by UTHM. The team was accompanied by Dr Fauzan Sahdi.

UNIMAS competed with 26 groups from various universities across Malaysia The team competed using the topic “Development of Procedure to Measure Highly Organic Soil/Peat Permeability – From Site to Laboratory”.

The work was supervised by Dr Fauzan Sahdi and Associate Professor Dr Siti Noor Linda bt. Taib, senior lecturers at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak’s Faculty of Engineering. At the closing of the competition, the team won two awards, namely, Best Poster Award and Bronze Medal Award (Project).

In this project, a simple portable permeability kit was designed for in-situ testing. This kit has the potential to measure the permeability of peat in a comparable manner as a conventional falling head permeability apparatus, with the added advantage that sample disturbance (due to sample preparation in the laboratory) may be decreased.
