The Q-slope system is an empirical method for discontinuous rock slope engineering classification and assessment. It has been introduced recently to provide an initial prediction of rock slope stability assessment by applying simple assumptions which tend to reflect different failure mechanisms. This study offers a correlation relationship between Q-slope and slope stability degree using case studies of sedimentary rock slopes from 10 regions of Iran. To this end, we have investigated 200 areas from these r...
Engineering geological investigations along the Iliksu Tunnels, Alanya, southern turkey
Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2003-03-01)
The main objective of this study is to assess the engineering geological characteristics of the rock mass and to suggest appropriate support recommendations along the two autoroad tunnel projects, named as Iliksu 1 and lliksu 2, which are located along the Antalya-Alanya Highway. The study area consists of pelitic schist and calc schist overlain by a thick sequence of recrystallized limestone and an intercalation of pelitic schist, calc schist and graphite schist. The tunnel ground support types and categor...
Improvement of statistical landslide susceptibility mapping by using spatial and global regression methods in the case of More and Romsdal (Norway)
Erener, Arzu; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-03-01)
Statistical models are one of the most preferred methods among many landslide susceptibility assessment methods. As landslide occurrences and influencing factors have spatial variations, global models like neural network or logistic regression (LR) ignore spatial dependence or autocorrelation characteristics of data between the observations in susceptibility assessment. However, to assess the probability of landslide within a specified period of time and within a given area, it is important to understand th...
Engineering geological investigations and the preliminary support design for the proposed Ordu Peripheral Highway Tunnel, Ordu, Turkey
Sopaci, Evrim; Akgün, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-07)
This paper presents engineering geological investigations and the tunnel support design for the Boztepe tunnel of the Ordu Peripheral Highway located in northeast Turkey. In order to characterize the rock masses in Boztepe Tunnel which mainly consist of flysch (mostly alternation of sandstone, marl and siltstone) and pyroclastics (agglomerate and tuff), engineering geological investigations have been carried out in three stages as surface, subsurface and laboratory investigations. Rock mass classification s...
