A case study on the stability of berm type coastal defense structures
Fışkın, Gökçe; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
Coastal defense structures have primary importance from obtainabilty of resources and benefits served by the coastal regions point of view. However, the construction of coastal defense structures demand a high amount of investment. Therefore, in order to reduce the risk of collapse of these structures, model studies should be carried during the design process. In this study, model investigations were carried out on Eastern Black Sea Highway Project regarding the serviceability and damage thus stability para...
Application of Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment Model to Selected Coastal Areas of Turkey
Özyurt Tarakcıoğlu, Gülizar; Ergin, Ayşen (2009-01-01)
Climate change and anticipated impacts of sea level rise such as increased coastal erosion, inundation, flooding due to storm surges and salt water intrusion to freshwater resources will affect all countries but mostly small island countries of oceans and low-lying lands along coastlines. Turkey having 8333 km of coastline including physically, ecologically and socio-economically important low-lying deltas should also prepare for the impacts of sea level rise as well as other impacts of climate change while...
An investigation of the microstructural and mechanical properties of tri-calcium phosphates doped with aluminum and fluoride ions
Tahmasebifar, Aydin; Evis, Zafer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and tricalcium phosphates doped with aluminum (Al3+) and fluoride (F-) ions at different compositions. TCP was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100C for 1 and 5 h. It was observed that density and relative density of the sintered materials were decreased by extending the sintering time. Increased densities were achieved upon Al3+ and/or F- doping. For structural anal...
Development of an algorithm for material selection
Seyis, Önder; Atala, Haluk; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
Material selection is one of the major points that should be taken into account seriously in the engineering design stage. Each material has various properties such as mechanical, thermal, electrical, physical, environmental, optical and biological properties. However, it is a well known fact that only a limited number of design engineers have a thorough knowledge on all these properties of a specific material, which is planned to be used in the manufacturing of the product. Therefore, the design engineer s...
An exploratory study on utilization of BIM for risk management
Kaya, Hazal Deniz; Dikmen, İrem; Atasoy, Güzide; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi; 2020-11-14)
It is a well-known fact that BIM application in construction projects enables several advantages such as better collaboration and communication, effective project visualization before construction, more efficient cost estimation and scheduling, and an increase in productivity. Although many of these advantages that BIM contributes to construction projects may result in opportunities for better risk management, there are limited studies in the construction management literature that investigate this subject....
