Landslide stabilization by piles: A case history
Şengör, Mahmut Yavuz; Ergun, Mehmet Ufuk; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan (null; 2013-09-02)
During the foundation excavation of an industrial plant in Eskişehir, Turkey, a landslide occurred in the neighbouring slope, and consequently, the excavation had to be stopped. The instability occurred in a natural slope which had an average slope angle of 9-13 degrees. The aerial extent of the slide mass was 400 m by 115 m. The material in the slope was 7 to 20 meter-thick colluvium (slide debris), which constitutes a historic landslide mass, underlain by a gravelly sandy silty clay matrix containing lim...
Landslide risk assessment and management by decision analytical procedure for Derekoy, Konya, Turkey
Duzgun, S. B.; Ozdemir, A. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-10-01)
The Derekoy landslide threatening the town of Derekoy, Konya, Turkey is investigated in order to assess and manage the associated risk. Derekoy town, located 12 km west of Konya city center, which is the second largest city in central Anatolia, has been extending due to the demand for new settlement places in Konya for the last decade. As most of the town is situated on the slopes of Meram river valley, on which the slope movements are observed, the risk of landslide has been increasing due to these new set...
Landslide susceptibility mapping: A comparison of logistic regression and neural networks methods in a medium scale study, Hendek region (Turkey)
Yesilnacar, E; Topal, Tamer (Elsevier BV, 2005-07-01)
Landslide susceptibility mapping is one of the most critical issues in Turkey. At present, geotechnical models appear to be useful only in areas of limited extent, because it is difficult to collect geotechnical data with appropriate resolution over larger regions. In addition, many of the physical variables that are necessary for running these models are not usually available, and their acquisition is often very costly. Conversely, statistical approaches are currently pursued to assess landslide hazard ove...
Landslide susceptibility assessment of Turkey using qualitative and semi-quantitative methods
Okalp, Kivanç; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
Landslides have been studied by using several methods like inventory, heuristic, statistic, and deterministic methods in the recent years; these studies have also been integrated into geographic information systems with the help of technological developments. However, there has not been any nationwide landslide susceptibility zoning map produced for entire Turkey. In this study, assessing the landslide susceptibility of Turkey at a national scale using publicly available datasets was aimed. Two different sc...
Landslide assessment and stabilization study along the Tarsus - Çamlıyayla provincial road at km: 11+640 -12+080
Ataş, Pelin; Akgün, Haluk; Department of Geological Engineering (2017)
During the road extension works of the Tarsus - Çamlıyayla Provincial Road at KM: 11+640 -12+080, a landslide occurred due to the construction of a steeper slope at the road side for wall construction. The purpose of this thesis is to determine the critical failure location of the landslide and to determine the necessary slope stabilization methods in order to prevent the development of a larger potential landslide that may occur in the future. For this purpose, necessary engineering geological in-situ and ...
