Reliability-based analysis of time-dependent scouring at bridge abutments
Kerpiççii Kara , Sibel; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
Deterministic scour prediction equations for bridge abutments do not involve uncertainties coming from scouring parameters and they only consider effects of hydraulic parameters. However, in order to safely design bridge abutments, treatment of these uncertainties and evaluation of possible risks are required. Two artificial neural network (ANN) models are constructed to describe scouring phenomenon using the parameters of two different equations. The equation to be used in the reliability analysis is then ...
Reliability-based maintenance optimization of walking draglines
Gölbaşı, Onur; Demirel, Nuray; Department of Mining Engineering (2015)
Dragline is an earthmover extensively utilized in open cast coal mines for overburden stripping activities. Since the machinery breakdowns may induce high amount of production losses, draglines are required to be operated with high availability. In this sense, effective maintenance policies are essential to improve longevity of dragline component and sustainability of operations. In this research study, it is aimed to develop a reliability-based maintenance optimization models for two walking draglines, Pag...
Reliability Modeling of Draglines for Availability Estimation and Maintenance Planning
Demirel, Nuray (2009-11-09)
Walking draglines are the dominant production equipment for overburden excavation in surface strip mining operations. Given that the average unit cost of production by dragline is US$ 3.5/m3 for coal, the one percent increase in the machine productivity can provide significant benefits to the industry. Effective use of draglines requires a thorough knowledge of machine productivity, efficiency, and reliability. Production engineers must be guided by appropriate strategies to preserve the structural and ope...
Reliability-Based Risk Assessment of Rubble Mound Breakwaters Under Tsunami Attack
Ergin, Ayşen (2002-09-01)
In the reliability-based risk assessment, the second order reliability index (beta II) method and the Conditional Expectation Monte Carlo (CEMC) simulation were utilised in order to analyse the safety levels of Haydarpasa Port main breakwater, Sea of Marmara, Turkey. The failure probability was forecasted in the beta II method by approximating the Hudson performance surface with a second-degree polynomial having an equal curvature at the design point where the design and structural parameters were taken int...
