The modulus of elasticity has primary importance in geotechnical engineering, since it defines the deformability of soil under existing field stresses and applied static loads. Elastic modulus (E-s) is most commonly derived from field tests (plate load test, standard penetration test, and cone penetration test etc.) and laboratory tests (unconfined compression tests, triaxial compression tests). Apart from these common methods, empirical relations may also be used to predict modulus of elasticity from one dimensional consolidation test, when other methods are inapplicable. In this study, this empirical relation is used to estimate modulus of elasticity of copper tailings material stored in a tailings dam.


Excitation spectrum of Hubbard model with infinite electron repulsion on strip-type triangular lattices
Cheranovskii, VO; Ezerskaya, EV; Krikunov, MV (2001-02-05)
The estimations of the stability region of the lattice ferromagnetic ground state in the space of model parameters are found. For the triangular lattice strip formed by L segments with the total number of electrons N = L + 1 we derived the effective Hamiltonians describing the low-energy states of the strips and obtained the analytical estimations for above stability region. The possibility of the magnetic transition with the jump of the ground-state spin between minimal and maximal values has also been sho...
Unified assessment of stress scaling factors for liquefaction engineering problems
Çetin, Kemal Önder (2014-01-01)
Most of the widely used seismic soil liquefaction triggering methods propose cyclic resistance ratio (CRR) values valid at a reference normal effective stress (σv,0) of one atmosphere, and a zero static shear stress (τst,0) state. Then a series of correction factors are applied to the CRR to account for the effects due to variations from the reference normal effective and static shear stresses (i.e., Kσ and Kα corrections). In the literature exists a number of stress correction factors used for seismic soil...
Stress Scaling Factors for Seismic Soil Liquefaction Engineering Problems: A Performance-Based Approach
Çetin, Kemal Önder; Bilge, Habib Tolga (2013-06-19)
Most of the widely used seismic soil liquefaction triggering methods propose cyclic resistance ratio (CRR) values valid at the reference normal effective stress (sigma(v,0)') of one atmosphere and zero static shear stress (tau(st,0)) states. Then, a series of correction factors are applied on this reference CRR, for the purpose of assessing the variability due to normal effective and static shear stress states (i.e. K-sigma and K-alpha corrections) acting on the horizontal plane. In the literature, a number...
Construction of phase diagrams to estimate phase transitions at high pressures: A critical point at the solid liquid transition for benzene
Ibrahimoglu, Beycan; Üner, Deniz; Veziroglu, Ayfer; Karakaya, Fuat; Ibrahimoglu, Beycan (2021-04-01)
Phase diagrams are an integral part of the estimation of material properties in the case of high temperature and pressure. The pressure-temperature (P-T) phase diagram is used to determine the state of aggregation (solid, liquid, gaseous) of a substance under given conditions. This article presents a method to reveal new states in the phase diagram, including the possibility of the plasma state. Using the empirical data of benzene, a critical pressure beyond solid-liquid equilibrium was estimated. It is hig...
Energy Dissipation Capacity of Reinforced Concrete Columns under Cyclic Displacements
Acun, Bora; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2012-07-01)
The energy dissipation capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) columns is investigated under inelastic cyclic displacements. Experimental data are obtained from 20 column specimens tested under constant-amplitude displacement cycles and from three column specimens tested under variable-amplitude displacement cycles. The effect of failure mode, displacement ductility, material properties, and detailing on the energy dissipation capacity of columns is investigated first under constant-amplitude loading. A simple...
