Purpose The recovery of building materials and their reuse in new construction should be considered during the design stage of every new project. This study was conducted to quantify the potential environmental impacts and the economic feasibility of reusing waste material in new constructions with an applicable design solution. Methods Wall pieces reclaimed from the demolition debris of a historic building in St. Petersburg, Russia, were inspected for potential reuse, and their mechanical strengths were de...
Assessing the impact of climate change on Mogan and Eymir Lakes' levels in Central Turkey
Yagbasan, Ozlem; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2012-05-01)
Global warming is likely to have significant effect on the hydrological cycle. Some parts of the world may see significant reductions in precipitation or major alterations in the timing of wet and dry seasons. Climate change is one of the serious pressures facing water resources and their management over the next few years and decades. As part of the southern belt of Mediterranean Europe, Turkey is highly vulnerable to anticipated climate change impacts. The changes in global climate will seriously affect i...

A stochastic modeling approach for the migration of contaminants in soil and ground-water is developed to assess the expected magnitude of contamination at receptors located downgradient from a waste pit. The model evaluates uncertainties in contaminant concentrations due to uncertainties in waste composition and hydrogeologic properties of waste sites, and determines the exceedance probabilities of a specified concentration level at receptor points using Monte Carlo (MC), first order (FO), and point-estima...
Assessing nonstationarity impacts for historical and projected extreme precipitation in Turkey
Aziz, Rizwan; Yücel, İsmail (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-01-01)
The temporal variability in yearly and seasonal extreme precipitation across Turkey is investigated using stationary and nonstationary frequency approach. Four frequency distributions namely, generalized extreme value (GEV), gumbel, normal, and lognormal distributions are used for the historical period (1971-2016) as well as the projection period (2051-2100). The nonstationarity impacts are determined by calculating the percentage difference of return levels (30 years) between stationary and nonstationary c...
Evaluating the health risks of potentially toxic elements through wheat consumption in multi-industrial metropolis of Faisalabad, Pakistan
Abbas, Qumber; Yousaf, Balal; Liu, Guijian; Zia-ur-Rehman, Muhammad; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Hussain, Syed Arif (2017-12-01)
Potentially toxic elements (PTEs) pollution is the fastest growing concern around the entire globe especially in developing countries. Rapid industrialization and urbanization are the dominant sources of anthropogenic soil-food chain contamination with PTEs. The intent of current study was to investigate the interactive levels of Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn in soil and their accumulation in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) samples collected from 96 sites including industrial, urban, and peri-urban areas of a lea...
