Numerical failure simulations of Kestel dam were performed under different scenarios. The numerical model employed was developed by Fread, D.L., and called DAMBRK. In the simulations, it was assumed that a breaching started, within the dam body soon after the maximum possible flood hydrograph entered the dam reservoir and caused the water to spill over the dam crest due to insufficient capacity of the spillway. Peak flood discharges, peak flood elevations and flood arrival times at preselected six cross-sec...
Reservoir heterogeneity of Ordovician sandstone reservoir (Bedinan Formation, SE Turkey): Diagenetic and sedimentological approachs
Yildiz, Gokay; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
The sandstone-bearing reservoir levels (Bedinan Formation) in the Diyarbakir Basin, SE Turkey show strong heterogeneity in porosity, permeability and capillary pressure, which influences oil production rates of the studied 6 wells and beclouds the prediction of hydrocarbon reserves. Therefore, comprehensive understanding of the sandstone reservoir characteristics has been necessitated to optimize its ultimate hydrocarbon recovery, maximize its lifetime and to make more accurate performance predictions for t...
Upstream structural management measures for an urban area flooding in Turkey
Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Surer, S.; Mumcu, H. (Copernicus GmbH; 2015-07-02)
In recent years, flooding has become an increasing concern across many parts of the world of both the general public and their governments. The climate change inducing more intense rainfall events occurring in short period of time lead flooding in rural and urban areas. In this study the flood modelling in an urbanized area, namely Samsun-Terme in Blacksea region of Turkey is performed. MIKE21 with flexible grid is used in 2-dimensional shallow water flow modelling. 1 x 1000(-1) scaled maps with the buildin...
