Middle East Arid (Dry) RegionLittle or No RainLack of Fresh Water ResourcesSurrounded by Red Sea,Arabian Gulf

Typical Characteristics are( Varying Geomorphic Conditions· Changing ClimatesÁOscillating Water Tables, High Salted “Sabkha” SoilsÀ Fluctuating Humidity'sq Low Electrical Resistivity of Soilsq Fast Track Construction

In Middle EastSea Water is Desalinated forDomestic RequirementsConstruction RequirementsIndustrial Demands etc.Desalination / Power / Chemical /Oil and Gas Plantsare Being Builtalong the Coasts of Red Sea and Arabian Gulf.

Factors Affecting Traditional MaterialsSeawater of Arabian Gulf and Red SeaTDS ranges from 40,000 to 65, 000 ppmIt contains Dissolved GasesDecaying Organics, In-Organic and Other aggressiveelementsActing alone or simultaneouslyproduces various forms of Degradation

Factors Affecting Traditional Materials Chemical FactorsOxygen, H2S, ChlorineSolubility, pH, Carbonate SolubilityPhysical FactorsVelocity: Air Bubbles, Suspended Solids, SiltTemperature and Pressure
