Comparison of fuel value and combustion characteristics of two different RDF samples
Akdağ, Akın; Atımtay, Aysel; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2016-01-01)
Generation of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) tends to increase with the growing population and economic development of the society; therefore, establishing environmentally sustainable waste management strategies is crucial. In this sense, waste to energy strategies have come into prominence since they increase the resource efficiency and replace the fossil fuels with renewable energy sources by enabling material and energy recovery instead of landfill disposal of the wastes. Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), which is...
Comparison of measured and predicted consolidation settlements in soft ground /
Ergin, Serhan; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Accurate prediction of consolidation settlement of soft clay and silt deposits has always been a topic of interest for geotechnical engineers. The objective of this study is to investigate the use of a few different computational tools for the realistic prediction of consolidation settlement in soft ground. During the literature review phase of this study, one well-documented case history of embankment constructed on soft ground with prefabricated vertical drains has been selected for further analyses. For ...
Comparison of the Combustion Characteristics of Three Different Fossil Fuels from Turkey
Hiçyılmaz, C; Altun, Naci Emre (2003-06-01)
In this study, thermal features and reaction kinetics of the raw Çorum-Alpagut Lignite, Zoııguldak-Üzülmez Bituminous Coal and Şırnak-Avgamasya Asphaltite were investigated through a qualitative and quantitative comparison via Thermogravimetric Analysis (TG/DTG) and an Arrhenius Type Kinetic Model, in order to determine the liability to ignite and effectiveness of the combustion of the concerned fuels as well as the critical points during their reaction periods. At the end of experiments, Alpagut Lignite, Ü...

Comparison of Geochemical Properties of Surface Sediments in Mersin and İskenderun Bay NE Mediterranean
Akçay, İsmail; Tezcan, Devrim (2016-10-12)
In the present study, surface sediment samples were collected at 17 stations selected within the inner sites of Mersin and Iskenderun bays (including city harbors) to examine regional variations of heavy metals (Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn), total/organic carbon (TC/TOC) and total nitrogen (TN) concentrations and grain -size distributions in less and highly contaminated sites. Though similar grain -size properties were observed, the surface sediments from the Mersin Harbor and nearby zone fed by wastewater r...
