Optimization of the lubricating oil inventory policy applied in a mining company
Şenses, Sena; Gölbaşı, Onur; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2021-02-01)
The mining industry should sustain mass and continuous production with an essential contribution of high-capacity machinery. Therefore, spare parts inventory management is vital in ensuring the intended mining production r...
Thermographic analysis of failure for different rock types under uniaxial loading
Kırmacı, Alper; Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa (2020-12-01)
Mining activities focus on the production of mineral resources for energy generation and raw material requirements worldwide and it is a known fact that shallow reserves become scarce. For this reason, exploration of new r...
Correlating common breakage modes with impact breakage and ball milling of cement clinker and chromite
Camalan, Mahmut (Elsevier BV, 2020-11-01)
Understanding the mechanisms of the breakage of ore particles is important to predict the particle size distribution in size reduction operations. This paper aims to show the presence of common breakage modes in impact bre...
A Data-Driven Approach to Control Fugitive Dust in Mine Operations
Kahraman, Muhammet Mustafa; Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa (2020-09-01)
Particulate matter (PM) is one of the main actors related to air pollution caused by surface mining. Fugitive dust, considered as particulate matter that cannot be collected by conventional measures, is classified by the p...
The use of non-parametric tests between subsamples and particle population for the assessment of minimum number of particles in microscopic analysis
Camalan, Mahmut (Informa UK Limited, 2020-08-01)
The use of small and reliable samples in a microscopic analysis can decrease the time to estimate the particle size and mineral grade distributions in a population of particles. This paper attempts to assess the minimum re...
A discrete-event simulation algorithm for the optimization of multi-scenario maintenance policies
Gölbaşı, Onur; Turan, Merve Olmez (Elsevier BV, 2020-07-01)
Maintenance policies that may incorporate alternative work packages with a different intention of implementation have an explicit effect on the availabilities and the operating costs of the production systems. These work p...
Simulating probabilistic sampling on particle populations to assess the threshold sample sizes for particle size distributions
Camalan, Mahmut (Informa UK Limited, 2020-07-01)
The primary objective in sampling is to acquire the smallest sample as a reliable estimate of a particle population. This study aims to assess the threshold (minimum) sample sizes for reliable estimation of particle size d...
Estimating the number-weighted equivalents of the mass-weighted size distribution functions
Camalan, Mahmut (Elsevier BV, 2020-06-01)
The number-weighted particle size distributions are difficult to be estimated experimentally. This study offers a simple conversion method to convert mass-weighted distributions to their number-weighted equivalents. Beside...
Yedek Parça Envanter Politikasının Makina Kullanılabilirliğine Etkisini Değerlendirmeye Yönelik Bir Simülasyon Algoritması
Gölbaşı, Onur (Çukurova Üniversitesi , 2020-06-01)
Bu çalışmada, yedek parça envanter politikasının maden makinası kullanılabilirliğine etkisini analiz edebilecek bir simülasyon algoritmasının geliştirilmesi amaçlanmıştır. Planlı üretim ve bakım duraksamaları ve makina arı...
Investigating the effects of water pretreatments on chromite liberation
Camalan, Mahmut (Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-18)
Many studies investigated the effects of grinding aids on mechanical and breakage properties of particles, as well as the flowability of ore-water slurries in wet grinding mills. Only recently, it was showed that grinding ...
Development of a supervised classification method to construct 2D mineral maps on backscattered electron images
Camalan, Mahmut; Cavur, Mahmut (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2020-01-01)
The Mineral Liberation Analyzer (MLA) can be used to obtain mineral maps from backscattered electron (BSE) images of particles. This paper proposes an alternative methodology that includes random forest classification, a p...
Comparative study of factors affecting public acceptance of mining projects: Evidence from USA, China and Turkey
Que, Sisi; Awuah-Offei, Kwame; Demirel, Ayhan; Wang, Liang; Demirel, Nuray; Chen, Yao (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-10)
Discrete choice theory has been shown to be a viable way to study individual preferences for resource development. However, only a limited amount of literature assesses the effect of culture, socio-economic, historical, an...
Laboratory and distinct element analysis of the deformability behaviour of thin spray-on liners
Öztürk, Hasan; Güner, Doğukan (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-01)
Thin spray on liners (TSL) are polymeric or cement-based products that have been used for underground rock support extensively. Although linear–elastic behaviour assumptions have been attempted during numerical modelling o...
Shortest path optimization of haul road design in underground mines using an evolutionary algorithm
Yardımcı, Ahmet Güneş; Karpuz, Celal (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-01)
All types of underground mine access serve as permanent openings to transfer men and extracted material throughout the life of an operation. Development and operating costs are predominantly controlled by the haul road len...
Investigating the effects of random sieving losses on particle size distributions
Camalan, Mahmut (Informa UK Limited, 2019-09-23)
Sieving analyses are very susceptible to the unavoidable particle losses. Therefore, it is important to assess how sieving losses will affect the particle size distributions. This study aims to simulate sieving losses unde...
