This paper investigates the shear strength of municipal solid waste (MSW) using back analyses of failed waste slopes. Shear strength of MSW is a function of many factors such as waste type, composition, compaction, daily cover, moisture conditions, age, decomposition, overburden pressure, etc. These factors together with non-standardized sampling methods, insufficient sample size to be representative of in-situ conditions, and limited shear displacement or axial strain imposed during the shear tests affect ...

Transportation agencies need to make accurate decisions about maintenance strategies to provide sustainability of pavements. Non-destructive pavement evaluation means play a crucial role when making such assessments. A commonly used method is to use Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) device which measures the surface deflections under imposed loadings. Determination of layer properties through the use of FWD deflections is known as pavement layer backcalculation. This process requires the use of mathematica...

The focus of this study is on the Nemrut Dag monuments, which were constructed approximately 2000 years ago at the peak of Mount Nemrut, 2206 meters elevation, are among the most valuable historical heritage sites in Turkey. Since the discovery of Nemrut monuments in 1881, many questions are unresolved, such as how the monuments were destroyed and why the damage level is very different between the symmetric east and west terraces. Natural causes, such as earthquakes, snow, or wind or manmade damages in the ...
