Theoretical and practical aspects of compaction grouting

Tuncdemir, Fatih
Although not applied in Turkey, compaction grouting has been used widely in many parts of the world and especially in the USA in foundation engineering for reducing the void ratio of soils, relevelling of settled buildings, underpinning of footings and slabs, controlling settlements, and for mitigation of liquefaction potential of the soils in the last 10 to 15 years. In this study, a theoretical approach regarding compaction grouting has been presented, injection parameters and theological properties of the grout has been correlated and practical applications, especially for increasing liquefaction resistance, have been discussed.


A matematical modeling study on the feasibility of disposing partially treated domestic wastewater using soil pile systems
Altınoklar, Hatice; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2006)
The soil pile system (SPS) is a wastewater infiltration system used for secondary and tertiary treatment of wastewater. The purpose of this study is to perform a feasibility study to assess the applicability of SPS for treatment and safe disposal of domestic wastewaters, using a simplistic steady-state flow analytical modeling and a numerical transient unsaturated flow and transport modeling approaches. It is also aimed to develop guidelines for the design and operation of field scale SPS using the results ...
An assessment of Winkler model for simulation of shallow foundation uplift
Taymuş, Refik Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Department of Engineering Sciences (2008)
Foundation uplift is the partial separation of a shallow foundation from soil due to excessive load eccentricity. Foundation uplift can significantly change the seismic response of slender structures, and frames as well. In literature, different support models for foundations are employed in order to simulate foundation uplift in seismic analysis of structures. One of the most widely used models is the Winkler model which assumes distributed tensionless springs beneath a shallow foundation. In this study, t...
A process-based diagnostic approach to model evaluation: Application to the NWS distributed hydrologic model
Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Wagener, Thorsten (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2008-09-11)
Distributed hydrological models have the potential to provide improved streamflow forecasts along the entire channel network, while also simulating the spatial dynamics of evapotranspiration, soil moisture content, water quality, soil erosion, and land use change impacts. However, they are perceived as being difficult to parameterize and evaluate, thus translating into significant predictive uncertainty in the model results. Although a priori parameter estimates derived from observable watershed characteris...
Soil erosion risk mapping using geographic information systems : a case study on Kocadere creek watershed, İzmir
Okalp, Kıvanç; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2005)
Soil erosion is a major global environmental problem that is increasing year by year in Turkey. Preventing soil erosion requires political, economic and technical actions; before these actions we must learn properties and behaviors of our soil resources. The aims of this study are to estimate annual soil loss rates of a watershed with integrated models within GIS framework and to map the soil erosion risk for a complex terrain. In this study, annual soil loss rates are estimated using the Universal Soil Los...
Diagnosing Neglected Soil Moisture Source-Sink Processes via a Thermal Infrared-Based Two-Source Energy Balance Model
Hain, Christopher R.; Crow, Wade T.; Anderson, Martha C.; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (American Meteorological Society, 2015-06-01)
In recent years, increased attention has been paid to the role of previously neglected water source (e.g., irrigation, direct groundwater extraction, and inland water bodies) and sink (e.g., tile drainage) processes on the surface energy balance. However, efforts to parameterize these processes within land surface models (LSMs) have generally been hampered by a lack of appropriate observational tools for directly observing the impact(s) of such processes on surface energy fluxes. One potential strategy for ...
