Surface coal mine area monitoring using multi-temporal high-resolution satellite imagery
Demirel, Nuray; Duzgun, H. Sebnem (Elsevier BV, 2011-04-01)
Surface mining activities, exploitation of ore and stripping and dumping overburden, cause changes on the land cover and land use of the mine area. Sustainable mining requires continuous monitoring of these changes to identify the long-term impacts of mining on environment and land cover to provide essential safety measures. In this sense, digital image classification provides a powerful tool to obtain a rigorous data and hence diminishes the essence of time-consuming and costly field measurements. There ar...
Mine reclamation bonding and regulation
Toprak, Filiz; Ünal, Erdal; Department of Mining Engineering (2004)
Dereliction of land by mining activities within the broad range of dereliction caused by other industrial and human activities was examined. Special attention was paid to impacts, mitigation, and costs thereof. Mine reclamation was examined in detail with special reference to professional interpretations. Mine reclamation bonding was studied with reference to environmental management planning so as to contribute to a forthcoming regulation concerning exactly these matters by providing a detailed listing of ...
Optimum cover design for waste rock storage areas
Argunhan, Çidem; Yazıcıgil, Hasan; Department of Geological Engineering (2014)
Developments in mining sector in Turkey necessitate examination of mine effects to the environment in a more extensive way. In this context, cover designs became important for waste rock storage and heap leach areas. Especially, cover design is applied in most of the waste rock areas in order to prevent exposure of minerals in waste rock storage area which may result in unwanted consequences such as acid rock drainage. In this study, North Waste Rock Storage Area in Kışladağ Gold Mine located in Uşak in Wes...
Scour Countermeasure Design For Sequential Viaducts on Ankara - Pozantı Highway
Çam, Umut Egemen; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
Foundations of river bridges need to be protected with respect to excessive scouring. Degree of protection depends on the severity of scouring action around bridge piers and abutments. A case study is carried out to design appropriate protective measures for sequential viaducts located on Ankara-Pozant highway in Turkey. A number of analyses are conducted to obtain water surface profiles throughout the study reach. Local scour depths at piers and abutments of the viaducts are then obtained. The design proc...
Engineering Properties of Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Bottom Ash Cement Paste Composites
Hanafi, Mohamad; Aydin, Ertug; Ekinci, Abdullah (MDPI AG, 2020-4-21)
<jats:p>Extinction of natural resources builds up pressure on governments to invest in research to find more sustainable resources within the construction sector. Earlier studies on mortar and concrete show that bottom ash and basalt fiber are independently alternative binders in the concrete sector. This study aims to use bottom ash and basalt fiber blends as alternative novel-based composites in pure cement paste. The strength and durability properties of two different percentages of bottom ash (40% and 5...
