Berkün, Uğur
The swell waves which are an important component of wind generated waves have significant effects on small craft and fisheries. The swell wave climate has an important role in the design and operation of fishing harbors and harbors for small craft. Despite this fact the swell wave climate is not well known for the Turkish coasts. The purpose of the present study was to identify the swell wave climate along the Black Sea coastline of Türkiye. For this purpose wind and swell wave data for a 65 months period is obtained from ECMWF for the analysis. And the data are analyzed for thirteen locations selected along the Turkish coast. For every location the wind and swell wave roses, significant swell wave height versus Mean period of primary swell relations, extreme probability distribution and log-linear cumulative probability distribution are presented. Also some extreme swell events in the Black Sea occurred in the data period are presented for a better understanding of generation and propagation of swell waves. The results showed that the swell wave activity and severity is higher in the western Black Sea coastline of Türkiye. The investigation of extreme swell events provided that the swell waves occur and diminish in a relatively short duration and the data available from ECMWF which is provided for 12 hour intervals is not sensitive to time enough for the investigation of swell wave occurrence and propagation. The significant swell wave height versus Mean period of primary swell relations and analysis on period of swell waves showed that the swell wave periods could reach up to 11 seconds in the Northern shores of Türkiye.

Aldoğan, Serhan; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
The wind waves have significant effects on small craft and fisheries. Therefore, wind wave climate has an important role in the design and operation of fishing harbors and harbors for small craft. The purpose of this study is to identify the wind wave climate along the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea coastline of Türkiye. For this purpose, wind wave data for a certain period is obtained from ECMWF for the analysis. Moreover, the data will be analyzed for locations selected along the Turkish coast usin...
Reliability-based evaluation of scouring around dual bridge piers
Yilmaz, Meric; Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (Croatian Association of Civil Engineers, 2019-01-01)
The causes of uncertainty involved in temporal variation of the depth of cavern formation due to clear water scouring at dual piers with tandem arrangement are identified in this study. In an example, the probability of failure induced by scouring around dual piers is estimated for various pier spacing using probabilistic analysis. The effects of changes in the coefficient of variation of probabilistic scouring variables and probability distributions on the probability of the loss of stability, are also inv...
Wind and wind wave climate research along the southern part of Black Sea
Çaban, Seçkin; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Winds and wind wave climate are two important phenomena for Black Sea basin. Wind wave climate has an important role on design of coastal structures and naval transportation. Despite this fact the wind wave climate is not well known for the Turkish coasts because of limited studies on this subject. The purpose of the present study was to further understand wind and wind wave climate along the Black Sea coastline of Türkiye. For this purpose wind and wind wave data for every 65 months is obtained from ECMWF ...
Stochastic strong ground motion simulations on North Anatolian fault zone and central Italy: validation, limitation and sensitivity analyses
Uğurhan, Beliz; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Assessment of potential ground motions in seismically active regions is essential for purposes of seismic design and analysis. Peak ground motion intensity values and frequency content of seismic excitations are required for reliable seismic design, analysis and retrofitting of structures. In regions of sparse or no strong ground motion records, ground motion simulations provide physics-based synthetic records. These simulations provide not only the earthquake engineering parameters but also give insight in...
