An investigation of agricultural use potential of wastewater sludges in Turkey with respect to heavy metals and pathogens
Özsoy, Gülçin; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2006)
Landfilling is the most common method that is used in the final disposal of sludge all around the world as well as in Turkey. However increasing sludge quantities and limited landfilling areas make this method invalid. Use of sludge in agriculture presents a possible alternative for disposal. However, it also poses some risks to be evaluated. In this respect, it is important to identify heavy metal and pathogen content of sewage sludges because of their adverse health effects. This study aims to determine t...
An Investigation of geotechnical characteristics and stability of a tailings dam
Sayıt, Emir; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
The objective of this study is to investigate the stability problems in tailing (i.e. mine waste) dams. A tailing dam is an embankment dam (made of natural borrow or tailing material) constructed to retain slurry-like mining wastes that are produced as a result of operation of mines. In the last 30 years, the stability of tailing dams has drawn much attention as a significant number of tailing dam failures have been recorded worldwide. These instability problems caused significant loss of life and damage to...
An Evaluation of Building Integrated Wind Energy
Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray; Tanyer, Ali Murat (null; 2017-06-07)
Electric, hybrid, and petrol vehicles utilize energy saving regenerative brakes to save energy• These systems generally use the same device for both locomotion and power generation (braking)• We can distribute many small aerofoils across the building façade to provide both ventilation and power generation as needed
An evaluation of Soma underground coal mine disaster with respect to risk acceptance and risk perception
Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem; Yaylaci, Evren D. (2016-08-19)
The underground coal mine disaster that occurred in Soma-Eynez Mine (SEM), Turkey, is one of the largest coal mine disasters of this Millennium. A fire suddenly started in the mine and could not be controlled, resulting in 301 fatalities and approximately 100 injuries. Although the cause of the fire has not yet been determined and there are various hypotheses related to the ignition of the fire, most of the casualties were mainly due to decision-making related problems in various hierarchal levels. Moreover...
An Assessment of boundary and category changes in Turkish national parks
Koptu, Selin; Bilgin, C. Can.; Department of Biology (2019)
The protected areas network in Turkey includes a number of sites designated by law as national parks (NP). Unfortunately, social and economic pressures may occasionally lead to downgrading of category or a redrawing of boundaries for some protected areas. The purpose of this thesis is to assess boundary and category changes in Turkish national parks, to try to understand the reasons behind such changes, and to develop recommendations. Such changes between 1959 and 2019 were identified by examining official ...
