Investigation of Trends and Nonstationarity in Hydrologic Variables in the Western Black Sea Basin, Turkey
Zaifoğlu, Hasan; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Baduna Koçyiğit, Müsteyde (2022-08-01)
Redundancy is related to the amount of functionality that the structure can sustain in the worst-case scenario of structural degradation. This paper proposes a widely-applicable concept of redundancy optimization of fin...
On the Stability of Moderate Height Berm-Type Earthen Dams: The Hancagiz Dam Example
Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
This study investigates the effects of berm properties on a moderate height earthen dam stability. The impacts of different berm heights, numbers and widths on the safety of the Hancagiz Dam are determined by analyzing the...
On the Optimum Layout of a Drainage Gallery in Concrete Gravity Dams on Isotropic Foundation
Daghestani, Tameem; Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (2019-11-01)
This study investigates the optimum location of drainage galleries of concrete gravity dams under usual, unusual, and extreme loading conditions. The uplift and the stress distributions were computed using the gravity meth...
Baduna Koçyiğit, Müsteyde; Akay, Hüseyin; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (null; 2019-11-01)
Türkiye'de meydana gelen akarsu köprülerinin yıkılma veya ağır hasar görme olayları incelendiğinde, bu olayların genellikle taşkınlar sırasında veya hemen sonrasında yaşandığı ve çeşitli hidrolik etkenler nedeniyle meydana...
Developing flood mitigation measures for the northern part of Nicosia
Zaifoglu, H.; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Akintug, B. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-09-01)
This study aims to examine a set of alternatives as remedial measures for the flood management purposes in order to protect the northern part of Nicosia which has been affected by major flooding events in recent years. In ...
Development of a Safety-Inspection Method for River Bridges in Turkey
Akay, Huseyin; Kocyigit, Musteyde Baduna; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (MDPI AG, 2019-09-01)
In this paper, findings of a research project about river bridges in Turkey are shared and details of the developed safety-inspection method based on hydrological and hydraulic factors are presented. In the project, the We...
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 fa...
Performance Evaluation of Internal Drains of Earthen Dams
Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-12-01)
Seepage is always expected in earthen dams because they are made of porous materials. However, it should be always under control and its amount and pore-water pressures should be kept below acceptable limits. This can be s...
Quality and Homogeneity Analysis of Precipitation Data in North Cyprus
Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ (2018-09-14)
This study aims to reveal procedures for testing and creating a set of complete, quality-controlled, and homogeneous precipitation data sets in North Cyprus. Database involves 37 daily precipitation series w...
A Methodology for Optimal Layout Design of Pressure Cells for Concrete Faced Rockfill Dams
Arı, Onur; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-08-01)
In this study, a methodology for optimal layout design of pressure cells for concrete faced rockfill dams is developed. A representative dimensionless stress distribution model was formed for obtaining the magnitudes and l...
