Assessment of artificial aquifer recharge potential in the Kucuk Menderes River Basin, Turkey
Sayit, Ayse Peksezer; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2012-06-01)
The Kucuk Menderes River Basin in western Turkey has been facing continuous groundwater-level decline for decades. Previous studies have suggested that, to avoid aquifer depletion in the basin, artificial recharge structures should be constructed. To assess artificial aquifer recharge potential in one of the subbasins, a two-dimensional (2-D) groundwater model was set up using SEEP/W software. The material functions and parameters used in the model for both saturated and unsaturated conditions were taken fr...
Uncertainty of local scouring parameters around bridge piers
Yanmaz, Ali Melih (2001-03-01)
Reliability-based assessment of local scouring mechanism around bridge piers provides information for decision-making regarding the pier footing design. Parameter uncertainties that may arise from various sources due to the inability to precisely quantify a parameter need to be estimated in order to quantify the level of risk of pier failure during the physical life of a bridge. By examining extensive experimental data from the literature on local scour depth around various shapes of bridge pier the functio...
Composition of atmosphere at the Central Anatolia
Yörük, Ebru; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2004)
Concentrations of elements and ions measured in samples collected between February 1993 and December 2000 at a rural site in central Anatolia were investigated to evaluate the chemical composition of atmosphere at central Anatolia, to determine pollution level of the region, to study temporal variability of the pollutants and to investigate the sources and source regions of air pollutants in the region. Level of pollution at central Anatolia was found to be lower than the pollution level at other European c...
Effective Stress and Shear Strength of Moist Uniform Spheres
Toker, Nabi Kartal; Culligan, Patricia J. (Wiley, 2014-05-01)
In continuum soil mechanics, the mechanical behavior of an element of soil is related to the effective stress, which is a measure of the average stress transmitted through the solid matrix in the form of contact stresses. In unsaturated soils, the coexistence of water and air within the soil pore space complicates this concept because the microscopic distribution of each fluid phase in soil pores cannot be known. Because it is thus not possible to physically measure effective stress in unsaturated soils, it...
Modeling of settlement in saturated and unsaturated municipal landfills
Durmusoglu, Ertan; Corapcioglu, M.Yavuz; Tuncay, Kağan (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2006-07-01)
Municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are not only used to dispose the refuse in most economical way but also utilized as a viable land in today’s waste management strategy. Settlement prediction is an important issue in order to guarantee the integrity of any postclosure structure on landfills. In this study, landfill settlement in saturated and unsaturated landfills is investigated by developing a one-dimensional mathematical model and performing numerical experiments. Under the saturated conditions, the ...
