Geotechnical characteristics of residual soils in rainfall-triggered landslides in Rize, Turkey
Üyetürk, Celal Emre; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Bayraktaroğlu, Hilmi; Huseyinpasaoglu, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
© 2019 Elsevier B.V.Every year, hundreds of landslides are triggered by rainfall in the city of Rize, northern Turkey, resulting in casualties and devastating social and economic consequences. Although these landslides have been observed every year, for a long time in Rize, there is limited data on characteristics of these soils in the literature. Characterizing these soils is of paramount importance for numerical modeling of the landslide mechanisms, for stabilization works, for landslide susceptibility ma...
Geotechnical characterization and performance assessment of bentonite/sand mixtures for underground waste repository sealing
Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2010-08-01)
The objective of this study is to assess the performance of a bentonite/sand mixture for the sealing of underground waste repositories through performing geotechnical laboratory tests such as compaction and flow tests. Swelling, mechanical and shear strength tests along with analyses of seal/rock mechanical interactions of an axially loaded seal in rock have been conducted to recommend an optimum compacted bentonite/sand mixture and a suitable bentonite/sand seal length-to-radius ratio (L/a) as a function o...
Geotechnical Considerations for Mining Method Selection of a Potential Underground Iron Ore Mine in Mideastern, Turkey
Karpuz, Celal (null; 2013-10-01)
Geotechnical analysis plays an important role in determining mining method selection. This study presents the geotechnical design analysis of a potential U/G iron ore Mentes Mine at Yahyali province of Kayseri district in Turkey. Iron ore body is initially planned to be mined by using long hole mining method. Detailed geotechnical site investigation and laboratory work are carried out to assess the applicability of the selected mining method. Diamond-drilled borehole cores are logged and geotechnical charac...
Geotechnical Properties and Permeability of Compacted Clay in the Gölbaşı Region Ankara
Akgün, Haluk (null; 2016-04-06)
This study evaluated the geotechnical properties and permeability of compacted clayey foundation soils in the Gölbaşı region of Ankara to determine their suitability as a compacted landfill liner material. The results of the tests showed that the clay was suitable to be used as a compacted clay landfill liner material.

Geotechnical Assessment of Compacted Sand Bentonite Mixtures to be Utilized in Underground Nuclear Waste Repositories and Barrier Design
Akgün, Haluk; Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem (2016-07-01)
This study assesses the mechanical and hydrological performance of compacted sand bentonite mixtures to be utilized in sealing underground nuclear waste repositories. In order to assess the performance of this material and to obtain an optimum sand bentonite mixture, a variety of laboratory tests, namely, compaction, falling head permeability, swelling, unconfined compression and shear strength tests were performed on sand bentonite mixtures possessing bentonite contents ranging from 5% to 15%. Sand bentoni...
