Risk assessment by fault tree analysis of roof and rib fall accidents in an underground hard coal mine
Direk, Cansu; Demirel, Nuray; Department of Mining Engineering (2015)
Mining sector has a high rate of injury and fatality among other sectors. Roof and rib fall in underground mines is one of the most commonly encountered accident causes that results in injuries, permanent disabilities, even fatalities. Implementing effective prevention measures based on the quantitative risk assessment is an emerging issue for underground coal mines in Turkey. The main objective of this study is to determine the root causes of roof and rib fall accidents in underground coal mines by impleme...
Engineering geological investigations along the Iliksu Tunnels, Alanya, southern turkey
Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2003-03-01)
The main objective of this study is to assess the engineering geological characteristics of the rock mass and to suggest appropriate support recommendations along the two autoroad tunnel projects, named as Iliksu 1 and lliksu 2, which are located along the Antalya-Alanya Highway. The study area consists of pelitic schist and calc schist overlain by a thick sequence of recrystallized limestone and an intercalation of pelitic schist, calc schist and graphite schist. The tunnel ground support types and categor...
Engineering geological investigations and the preliminary support design for the proposed Ordu Peripheral Highway Tunnel, Ordu, Turkey
Sopaci, Evrim; Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-07)
This paper presents engineering geological investigations and the tunnel support design for the Boztepe tunnel of the Ordu Peripheral Highway located in northeast Turkey. In order to characterize the rock masses in Boztepe Tunnel which mainly consist of flysch (mostly alternation of sandstone, marl and siltstone) and pyroclastics (agglomerate and tuff), engineering geological investigations have been carried out in three stages as surface, subsurface and laboratory investigations. Rock mass classification s...
Engineering geological and geotechnical site characterization and determination of the seismic hazards of Upper Pliocene and Quaternary deposits situated towars the west of Ankara
Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
The purpose of this study is to assess the engineering geological and geotechnical characteristics and to perform seismic hazard studies of the Upper Pliocene and Quaternary deposits located towards the west of Ankara. Based on a general engineering geological and seismic characterization of the site, site classification systems are assigned for seismic hazard assessment studies. The objective of the research is to determine the regional and local seismic soil conditions, predominant periods and ground ampl...
Quality assessment of the armourstones for some Black Sea rubble mound breakwaters
Özden, Utku Ahmet; Topal, Tamer; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
Black Sea coast line is a hazardous region especially in winter due to the dominant wave action. Therefore, rubble mound breakwaters used as ship shelters are vital structures especially for the fishermen. Construction of the breakwater requires good quality durable armourstones. Due to the nature of the rubble mound breakwaters, armourstones having various sizes and types are used in the construction of these structures. The deterioration of these armourstones with time in the form of abrasion and disinteg...
