Numerical investigation of coherent structures forming around bridge piers sitting on an inclined surface
Hesap, Emre; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-11)
Coherent structures forming around the piers play an important role in the formation of scour hole. Detached Eddy Simulation is used in this study to investigate the three-dimensional coherent structures forming around bri...
Yılmaz, Anıl; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-11)
The construction industry still suffers from reaching critical objectives of projects like duration and budget. To deal with this situation researchers and practitioners realized the importance of knowledge management in t...
Investigation of the effects of uncertainties of inflow hydrograph and dam breach geometry on outflow hydrograph
Gödek, Neslihan Pınar; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Çalamak, Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-11)
Precise breach outflow hydrograph is crucial for the accurate determination of the flood damage and cost at the downstream region. Precise flood inundation modeling is based on the use of a realistic breach outflow hydrogr...
Çabuk, Eser; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-09)
In Turkey, seismic base isolation have become mainly used passive earthquake control system especially among hospital structures after the amendment of Ministry of Health in 2014, regulating the design of hospitals in high...
Digital terrain model extraction from high-resolution point clouds by using a multi-resolution planarity-based approach
Koçan, Yasin; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2021-9-09)
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a mathematical representation of the elevation of the Earth’s surface. There are two types of DEM, namely Digital Surface Model (DSM) and Digital Terrain Model (DTM). DSM contains natural (...
BIM-based formwork and cladding quantity take-off using visual programing
Çepni, Yaşar; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-09)
Material quantity take-off (QTO) is an indispensable work item in construction projects since it is essentially utilized for scheduling and cost calculation. Traditionally, quantities are calculated based on 2D drawings, w...
A laboratory study on the use of lime columns to improve expansive soils
Özkan, İlyas; Çokça, Erdal; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-09)
Expansive soils are well-known for their cyclic shrink-swell behavior due to seasonal moisture changes. These cyclic movements of expansive soils are due to physicochemical changes at the particle level that are dependent ...
Numerical modeling of dam breach in concrete gravity dams
mosaddeghi, farshid; Köken, Mete; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-08)
When a dam fails, a large amount of water is suddenly released that may create large flood waves capable of causing devastating impacts to downstream areas. This is even more important when the damage is caused by an earth...
Opportunities and challenges in using soil moisture from cosmic ray neutron sensing for rainfall-runoff modelling
Duygu, Mustafa Berk; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-08)
Retrieving or estimating soil moisture is one of the most important elements of hydrology, since most of the hydrological studies consider the absence (drought) or excessiveness (flood) of water stored in the soil. Water s...
Utilization of wet-handled and dry-handled coal bottom ashes in portland cement based composites
Tirkeş, Sera; Akgül, Çağla; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9-7)
Coal bottom ash (BA) is a coarse, granular, incombustible by-product collected from the bottom of coal-burning furnaces. Traditionally, it has been handled by wet-handling systems (WHS) that use large amounts of water for ...
Investigation of legal issues and contractual considerations associated with BIM use in construction projects
Kaya, Fatih; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9)
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has expanded its use worldwide in recent years, as it brings efficiency and better quality to the construction industry. This expansion also motivates researchers to investigate potenti...
Computational modeling of self-assembly in deformable bodies
Bilgin, Koçak; Göktepe, Serdar; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9)
Self-assembly is a process in which an irregular system transforms into a regular pattern or an organized structure through local interactions between the components of the material without any external influence. Therefor...
