A preliminary study on the use of reservoir simulation and coal mine ventilation methane measurements in determining coal reservoir properties
Erdoğan, Sinem Setenay; Okandan, Ender; Kracan, Cevat Özgen; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2011)
This thesis investigates methane emissions and methane production potentials from abandoned longwall panels produced or emitted due to mining activities either from coal seam or any underlying or overlying formations. These emissions can increase greenhouse gas concentrations and also pose a danger to the underground working environment and to miners. In addition to the safety issues, recovery and utilization of this gas is an additional source of energy. In this study, methane concentrations measured from ...
A geographic information system application for ambulance routing services : a prototype
Gülden, Birsen; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Department of Information Systems (2004)
In public safety, geography plays a significant role. One of the most important front-line elements of public safety is an efficient emergency transport and care system. The capacity to access and process information rapidly and organize resources where needed can be critically important in an emergency situation. Information about the locality of an event or a disaster is often vital in knowing how to respond. A significant operation in handling emergency situations is the routing of ambulances to incident...
A Quantitative risk assessment methodology for occupational accidents in underground coal mines: a case of Turkish hard coal enterprises
Erdoğan, Hasan Hüseyin; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Mining Engineering (2016)
Underground coal mining is one of the most dangerous occupations throughout the world. The incidence of injuries and the days lost due to accidents in underground coal mines are much greater than industrial average. In general, the reasons behind an underground occupational accident are too complex to analyze. The risk analysis and assessment is the most suitable method to cope with these type of issues. This study proposes a quantitative methodology for the analysis and assessment of risks associated with ...
Probabilistic-numerical modeling of stability of a rock slope in Amasya-Turkey
Gheibie, Sohrab; Akgün, Aykut; Department of Mining Engineering (2011)
Rock slope stability is considered as one of the most important fields in rock engineering. Developments of computation facilities and increase in application of sophisticated mathematical concepts in engineering problems have also affected the methods of slope stability analysis. In recent years, the numerical modeling methods have extensively applied instead of limit equilibrium methods. Also, the probabilistic methods are considered in rock slope designs to quantify the uncertainties of input effecting v...
The synthesis of titanium dioxide photocatalysts by sol-gel method: the effect of hydrothermal treatment conditions and use of carbon nanotube template
Yürüm, Alp; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2009)
Titanium dioxide (TiO2), a semiconductor, has been used in many areas like heterogeneous photocatalysis. In the present study, the effect of hydrothermal treatment conditions and the use of carbon nanotubes on the photocatalytic activity of sol-gel synthesized titanium dioxide were examined. The anatase particles were transformed into layered trititanate particles with either nanotube or nanoplate structure by hydrothermal treatment under the alkaline conditions. Post hydrothermal treatment under neutral co...
