Verification of empirically determined support systems of the Kılıçlar highway tunnel by numerical modelling
Çelik, Gözde; Topal, Tamer; Department of Geological Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study is to determine the geological and geotechnical characteristics of Kılıçlar Tunnel on Ankara-Kırıkkale Highway, to suggest the appropriate support and excavation systems and verify these suggested support systems via numerical modeling. The length of Kılıçlar Tunnel is 1110 m. The width of tunnel is 16 m, the height is 10 m and the maximum overburden height is 90 m. Since Ankara-Kırıkkale Highway consists of 2x3 lanes, the tunnel is designed as a twin tube tunnel. Kılıçlar Tunnel is pl...
Assessment of the effects of adaptive reuse interventions on three apartment buildings in Beyoğlu, İstiklal street
Tamer Türer, Füsun; Özgönül, Nimet; Department of Restoration (2020-10-26)
The main subject of the thesis is the relationship between the new function and the carrying capacity of the building in adaptive reuse interventions in the context of conserving the architectural heritage. In adaptive reuse applications, the first thing that should be considered is that the new function is compatible with the building, in order to ensure that the architectural heritage assets are conserved in a healthy way. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis is to assess the relationship between t...
Assessment of tunnel induced deformation field through 3-dimensional numerical models (Necatibey subway station, Ankara, Turkey)
Aktürk, Özgür; Doyuran, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2010)
In heavily settled areas, deformations induced by the tunnel excavation may cause serious damage to nearby structures. In this study it is aimed to model ground deformations induced by main tunnels and connection tunnels excavations as well as groundwater drainage. Therefore, it is necessary to study effective means of controlling tunnel induced deformations. The main parameters affecting the failure and deformation state of the soil around a circular underground opening are the physical characteristics of ...
Evaluation of alluvial deposits in Gemlik basin in terms of earthquake codes.
Avşar, Ulaş; Doyuran, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
Gemlik County is located in the Marmara Region (NW Turkey), which has been affected by destructive earthquakes sourced from North Anatolian Fault System throughout its history. The bulk of the settlement rests on alluvial deposits of the Gemlik pull-apart basin. So, it is vital to investigate the foundation soils in this basin and the response of them to earthquakes. Many earthquake codes were established by the authorities in different countries of the world to estimate the possible ground shaking and seis...
Estimation of potential earthquake losses for the evaluation of earthquake insurance risks
Karaca, Hakan; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Estimation of extreme seismic losses has been a major concern for the insurance sector. Especially, the recent series of large magnitude earthquakes have forced both the client and the insurance companies to obtain reliable estimates of potential seismic losses. Thus, seismic risk mapping has become a major task for the insurance industry. For seismic risk mapping it is necessary to develop a model which integrates the information on seismic hazard and the information on expected earthquake damage on engine...
