Türkiye de Şehirlerarası Yük Trafiği CO2 Emisyonlarının Tahmini

2013-01-01
Recently, road freight transportation dominates the freight sector in many countries including Turkey, which is causing a growing concern about environmental and sustainability issues. To develop better policies, road freight emissions have to be determined. Such evaluations are very challenging in the absence of disaggregate commodity flow data, which is the case in Turkey. As a solution, to calculate truck freight transportation emissions a model that combines national level national freight transportation statistics with detailed information collected from roadside axle surveys is proposed. As the roadside axle load surveys are performed on intercity roads, the proposed model can provide emission for intercity truck transportation. Emissions are estimated for the period of 2000 to 2009 using COPERT 4 software. Besides, the level of CO2 emissions is almost same in 2009 and 2000. This amount corresponded to the 25.9% of the national transportation sector emissions in 2009.

Estimation of road freight transportation emissions in Turkey
Özen, Murat; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye; İnal, Ayhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
To obtain a more sustainable transportation system, it is also important to decrease both fuel consumption and carbon emissions in road freight sector, as well. The first step towards this goal is to determine the current level of road freight demand and related emissions. This is rather challenging in Turkey, because disaggregate commodity flow data does not exist. However, annual roadside axle survey, performed by the Turkish General Directorate of Highways, is a valuable source of circulation information...
Evaluation of factors affecting mode choice of highspeed railway (HSR) users in Turkey
Dalkıç, Gülçin; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
To change the current road dominancy in the intercity passenger transportation, Turkey has been establishing High-Speed Rail (HSR) services as a competitive mode since 2009. Currently there are four HSR lines connecting seven cities and three HSR lines under construction. In the scope of this study, a passenger survey was conducted at four stations of the currently serving HSR lines to obtain data on i) intercity mode choices of HSR users for different trip purposes, ii) alternative modes preferred in HSR c...
Modeling of freight transportation on Turkish highways
Ünal, Leyla; Türel, Ali; Department of City and Regional Planning (2009)
Transportation planners are often faced with the problem of estimating passenger and freight flows between regions. In the literature there are many models for passenger flows. However, models about freight flows are more limited. Modeling freight flow is also more complex than modeling passenger flow and there are many agents related with freight flows. In addition, data availability is a critical factor. In this research, freight flows between provinces in Türkiye are forecasted by demand analysis. Transp...
Performance prediction of underground gas storage in salt caverns
Bagci, A. Suat; Ozturk, E. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Underground gas storage is a common activity in countries with major transport and distribution gas pipeline infrastructures, which allows to efficiently resolve demand seasonality problems. Subsurface caverns in salt formations are being increasingly used for storage of natural gas. In this study, a real salt cavern having the potential for being an underground gas storage unit was evaluated. A model of the salt cavern was constructed within the gas simulator established for the purposes of this study. The...
Assessment of applicability of performance-based contracts in Turkey for road maintenance services
Ateş, Koray; Öztürk, Hande Işık; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In the last decades, many countries have been in search of new contracting types for the road maintenance sector to reduce the cost by increasing efficiency. Performance-based contracting (PBC) for road maintenance services, which is one of the most popular approaches that has been preferred by many countries all over the world, has been reviewed in detail in this study. Although many studies and cases present the affirmative results of PBC, changing the road maintenance system from the traditional contract...
