Kayraktepe dam and HEPP, environmentally acceptable alternative solution

Sever, Özgür
In this study, alternative solution of Kayraktepe Dam is investigated. Kayraktepe Dam was planned more than 30 years ago, but due to various reasons the construction could not be realized. In this study, an alternative feasible formulation was developed. Former Kayraktepe Dam was planned for multiple objectives: flood control, energy generation and water supply for irrigation. The newly developed formulation was designed to meet these objects as well.


A comprehensive evaluation of possible eutrophication control methods for Keban dam reservoir with special emphasis on pre-dam construction
Karul, C; Soyupak, S; Tuncer, A; Mukhallalati, L; Cilesiz, AF (1997-05-01)
This study evaluates the available eutrophication control techniques that could be applied in Keban Dam Reservoir. A limited reduction of phosphorous was shown to be achieved by pre-dam construction on the major nutrient source, Murat River. Biomanipulation was evaluated as an ineffective method. A performed analysis has shown that only a drainage basin management program may decrease the phosphorous loading to the extent desired.
Deformation behavior of a clay cored rockfill dam in Turkey
Oral, Yaşar Zahit; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
In this study, Bahçelik Dam, which is located in Kayseri Province, is investigated by means of horizontal movement due to reservoir loading and seepage inside the core and body. Two dimensional plain strain finite element analyses are carried out in order to find total stresses, displacements and pore water pressures. Mohr-coulomb soil model is used to represent elastic behavior of rock-fill material. Since there is no information about material used in dam body, material parameters are determined by sensit...
Preparation of clay-polymer nanocomposite for the retardation of waste water infiltration in landfill sites
Bildiren, Mert; Günal Türkmenoğlu, Asuman; Department of Geological Engineering (2007)
In this thesis study, the use of clay-polymer nanocomposites for their applicability in landfill sites as a product of retardation of waste water infiltration was evaluated. For this purpose, organophilic clays from HDTMA+ organic cation and nanocomposites of montmorillonite were prepared. The bentonite samples B1, B2 and B3 dominantly contain 2:1 layer montmorillonite and 1:1 interstratification of illite/smectite mixed layer as clay minerals. B1 is an unmodified yellow bentonite and B2 is a grey bentonite...
Analysis of bakery products by laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy
Bilge, Gonca; BOYACI, İSMAİL HAKKI; ESELLER, KEMAL EFE; TAMER, UĞUR; Çakır, Serhat (2015-08-15)
In this study, we focused on the detection of Na in bakery products by using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) as a quick and simple method. LIBS experiments were performed to examine the Na at 589 nm to quantify NaCl. A series of standard bread sample pellets containing various concentrations of NaCl (0.025-3.5%) were used to construct the calibration curves and to determine the detection limits of the measurements. Calibration graphs were drawn to indicate functions of NaCl and Na concentrations...

This study investigates the performances of reduction methods of the seepage problem at the foundation of a real embankment dam, Oğulcuk Dam located in Yozgat, Turkey. The steady-state seepage modeling is used in the analysis. The variation of relief wells inner diameter, location and spacing parameters are compared with each other and are also compared with different alternatives, such as cutoff walls, core trenches, and cutoff walls with blankets. Different variations of those methods i.e. locations and d...
