Volume change measurement in triaxial testing of unsaturated soils
Ahmadinaghadeh, Reza; Toker, Nabi Kartal (null; 2012-06-30)
Change in the volume of a soil specimen is related to its pore-fluid. In saturated soils, volume change can be measured by monitoring the inflow or outflow of pore water from the specimen. However, conventional techniques of measuring the volume change are not applicable to unsaturated soil specimens due to presence of air phase. Over the past decades, several volume measurement techniques have been developed for testing of unsaturated soils. This paper first summarizes basic working principles of different...
Size-by size analysis of breakage parameters of cement clinker feed and product samples of an industrial roller press
Camalan, Mahmut; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Mining Engineering (2012)
The main objective in this study is to compare breakage parameters of narrow size fractions of cement clinker taken from the product end and feed end of industrial-scale high pressure grinding rolls (HPGR) in order to assess whether the breakage parameters of clinker broken in HPGR are improved or not. For this purpose, drop weight tests were applied to six narrow size fractions above 3.35 mm, and batch grinding tests were applied to three narrow size fractions below 3.35 mm. It was found that the breakage ...

Subway transportation systems play an important role in human life in this century. Millions of people make use of subway transportation every day in metropolises. In subways, there is a very crucial situation "case of fire and smoke generation" that must be prevented. In subway areas, it is known that stairs are used to connect the ground with the subway area, metro stations in other words. Stairs have an angle with the ground horizontal called as tilt angle. The most important case of smoke movement in ca...

Quality control, homogeneity analysis, and trends of extreme precipitation indices in Northern Cyprus
Zaifoğlu, Hasan; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2017-12-01)
In this study, the annual and seasonal changes in extreme precipitation indices were investigated in Northern Cyprus by using the non-parametric Mann–Kendal trend test and Sen’s slope estimator. To this end, quality control of data procedure including estimation of missing data, detection of unreasonable values, and outliers were applied to 36 daily precipitation series to identify different errors. In order to test the homogeneity of the daily series, a two-step approach with four homogeneity tests and ove...
