Geotechnical Considerations for Mining Method Selection of a Potential Underground Iron Ore Mine in Mideastern, Turkey
Karpuz, Celal (null; 2013-10-01)
Geotechnical analysis plays an important role in determining mining method selection. This study presents the geotechnical design analysis of a potential U/G iron ore Mentes Mine at Yahyali province of Kayseri district in Turkey. Iron ore body is initially planned to be mined by using long hole mining method. Detailed geotechnical site investigation and laboratory work are carried out to assess the applicability of the selected mining method. Diamond-drilled borehole cores are logged and geotechnical charac...
Geotechnical rock-mass evaluation of the Anamur dam site, Turkey
Ozsan, A; Karpuz, Celal (Elsevier BV, 1996-03-01)
This paper describes a feasibility-level geotechnical evaluation carried out at Anamur dam site, in terms of stability analysis of dam foundation, excavation slopes and a diversion tunnel. The proposed Anamur dam will be built across the Anamur river on the Alanya metamorphic series which consists of phyllite, schist and slate units at the site. Geotechnical investigations included drilling for core, pumping tests, sampling for laboratory testing, and a detailed discontinuity survey.
Geotechnical characterization of soils prone to rainfall-induced landslides in Rize (Northern Turkey)
Üyetürk, Celal Emre; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Landslides are common type of natural hazards around the world. Every year, hundreds of landslides are induced by rainfall in Rize. These landslides are shallow failures, generally having a maximum depth of 5 m. Although many of these landslides are observed every year, there is limited data on characteristics of these soils in the literature. Characterizing these soils is of paramount importance for numerical modeling of the landslide mechanisms, for landslide susceptibility mapping and for establishing ra...
Geotechnical evaluation of Ankara clay as a compacted clay liner
Met, Ilker; Akgün, Haluk (2015-08-01)
This study investigates the geotechnical properties, and mineralogical and permeability characteristics of "Ankara clay" to evaluate its suitability as a compacted clay landfill liner material. The geotechnical index properties of the clayey soil samples collected from the western part of Ankara were determined. All the soil samples were tested for permeability by means of falling head compaction permeameter apparatus. The mineralogy of the soil samples were examined by X-ray diffraction and scanning electr...
