In this study, the dam-break analysis of Ondokuz Mayıs Dam, İhsaniye Dam, and Avcıdere Dam is performed using full momentum HEC-RAS and dynamic wave FLO-2D model. The breach hydrograph for each dam was obtained by modeling...
Water surface profile computation around square blocks by imaginary representation of the obstructions in the shallow water equations
Hofioni, Sayed Omar; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-7)
Depth integrated shallow flow equations can be solved easily over large domains to provide flood inundation maps. However, there may be numerous natural or artificial obstructions that increase resistance to flow due to dr...
A STUDY ON OPTIMUM LAYOUT DESIGN OF PIEZOMETERS IN EARTH-FILL DAMS
Gökmen, Salih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-7)
Excessive pore water pressure is one of the causes of failure in earth-fill dams. Therefore, distribution of pore water pressure within the dam body must be observed throughout the lifetime of the structure. The observatio...
A STUDY ON PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF RELIEF WELLS DOWNSTREAM OF EMBANKMENT DAMS
Göğüş, Doruk; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Çalamak, Melih; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-6-30)
This study investigates the performances of reduction methods of the seepage problem at the foundation of a real embankment dam, Oğulcuk Dam located in Yozgat, Turkey. The steady-state seepage modeling is used in the analy...
A tool for visualization of risk information: the Risk Box
Karakoçak, Elif; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-6-28)
Visualization is an effective way to represent data that mainly aims to make the data easier to be understood, analyzed, and processed by the users. In literature, there exist many studies focusing on the necessity and eff...
A topological system for codification of river basins in Turkey
Ulucan, İbrahim; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2021-6-23)
Recently, owing to incredible development in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and software fields, besides effectively using the network and topology instruments, great advances have been made in the field of hydrologi...
Estimation of wheat yields by using remotely sensed and modeled agro-meteorological data-driven statistical and crop growth models
Bulut, Burak; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-6)
Estimation of wheat yield is essential not only for agricultural sectors but also for making economic and strategic decisions at the national level. In this thesis, wheat yield estimation was carried out on the cities and ...
