A case study on development of flood mitigation measures

Durğut, Aybike Ceren
Severe floods have negative impacts on the infrastructural facilities in residential areas and inconveniences to socio-economical conditions. Therefore, it is a must to mitigate these adverse effects by implementing some structural measures. This study deals with the proposal of some detention basins in the upstream part of a critical area, which is located between the embankments of Ankara-Eskişehir highway and Ankara-İstanbul conventional railway. It is intended to offset the possibility of overtopping of these transportation systems and protect private properties in this critical zone. Best protective options are determined by evaluating several upstream detention basin alternatives that yield remarkable attenuation. Hydraulic performance of the culvert and lower flood pass have also been examined using HY-8 Software.


A Study on flood management practices for Güzelyurt
Şahin, Erdal; Yanmaz, A Melih; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
This study deals with the investigation of characteristics of a flash flood and development of design of flood mitigation facilities occurred in Güzelyurt in North Cyprus on 18th of January, 2010 and development of design of flood mitigation facilities. Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling of this flood event has been utilized to develop solutions for preventing the region from the flood. Topographical maps and soil properties are used in hydrological modeling. The data are inserted into a geographical informa...
Utilization of numerical weather prediction models for flood planning and operational studies in datascarce basins
Bozkurt, Okan Çağrı; Merzi, Nuri; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-9)
With the increasing rates of urbanization, floods have become a more critical problem day by day. Consequently, the perception arises that the flood control structures have become insufficient. Well-calibrated weather forecasting and hydrological models are important complementary tools to reduce the damage caused by floods. Such applications can yield results as useful as structural measures. In this study, the effects of the use of numerical weather forecasting and hydrological models on structural and no...
Modeling of Morphou Flood and Remedial Measures
Şahin, Erdal; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (2013-07-01)
Flash floods are known to result in excessive damage and loss of lives due to lack of early warning systems. In this study, characteristics of a flash flood occurred in Morphou region in North Cyprus on 18th of January, 2010 are studied and some remedial measures are proposed. Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling of this flood event has been developed for decision-making concerning type and degree of implementation of these measures. Since there is no any stream flow gauging station along the creeks in the stu...
A study to incorporate renewable energy technologies into the power portfolio of Karachi, Pakistan
Ali, S. M. Hassan; Zuberi, M. Jibran S.; Tariq, M. Arsalan; Baker, Derek Keıth; Mohiuddin, Abdullah (2015-07-01)
Karachi is facing severe power outage problems, with 3 to 8 hours of power outages every day, accounting for large economic losses. The city has a total electricity generation capacity of 2848 MW and a peak load of 2500 MW. This study estimates the potential of Solar, Wind and Biomass renewable energy options to meet part of the electrical demand in Karachi, Pakistan and further discusses the feasibility of the proposed projects. The objective is to define and evaluate a mix of these renewable energies that...

This study aims to execute a flood management system and examine the appropriate structural measures to protect Dikmen town against the impacts of flooding. At first, hydrologic models using HEC-HMS tools are developed to simulate the rainfall-runoff processes in each of the three main ungauged sub-basins on the upstream side of the town. Next, the discharge hydrographs of the 5th December 2018 flood event are defined in the 2D HEC-RAS model, and the flood inundation maps of the study area are generated. T...
