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...
Application of the modified Q-slope classification system for sedimentary rock slope stability assessment in Iran
Azarafza, Mohammad; Nanehkaran, Yaser A.; Rajabion, Lila; Akgün, Haluk; Rahnamarad, Jafar; Derakhshani, Reza; Raoof, Amir (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
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...

Eskihisar open pit mine, located at Yatagan, southwest Turkey, produces thermal coal for a power generating plant. As mining of strips advanced southwards, instability appeared to be highly critical due to the movements in the southeast wall slopes adjacent to the state highway running parallel to the pit boundary. This situation called for an immediate response to initiate a detailed geotechnical investigation program and to redesign the pit slopes. This paper outlines the most probable mode and mechanism ...
Experimental evaluation of geomembrane/geotextile interface as base isolating system
Kalpakci, V.; Bonab, A. T.; Özkan, M. Yener; Gülerce, Zeynep (Thomas Telford Ltd., 2018-02-01)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of the geomembrane/geotextile interface on the seismic response of small-to-moderate height structures. Three building models with first-mode natural frequencies changing between 2-4 Hz (representing two, three and four storey structures) were tested with and without the addition of geomembrane/geotextile interface using the shaking table test setup by employing harmonic and modified/ scaled ground motions. Experimental results showed that the geomembran...
