Thermographic analysis of heat generation during ucs testing of rocks
Kırmacı, Alper; Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Mining Engineering (2020)
SMining activities concentrate on the production of underground resources for energy generation and raw material requirements worldwide, as it is also the case in Turkey. For this reason, the exploration of new resources p...
Tensile opening mode fracture toughness measurements and size effect investigations with Brazilian disc type rock specimens
Şar, Elifnaz .; Tutluoğlu, Levend; Department of Mining Engineering (2020)
The flattened Brazilian disc(FBD)geometrieswere subjected to compressive loads at the loading ends. Tensile stresses were generated indirectly at the center of the disc specimens. Cracks were initiated, and they propagated...
Effect of loading span on tensile mode fracture toughness for three-point bend specimen geometries
Karataş Batan, Ceren; Tutluoğlu, Levend; Department of Mining Engineering (2020)
Straight notched disk bending specimen geometry has a potential to find size independent mode I fracture toughness, since the thickness of the disk loaded by threepoint bending can be increased. Increasing the thickness an...
Creep behaviour analysis of thin spray-on liners
Güner, Doğukan; Öztürk, Hasan; Department of Mining Engineering (2020)
Thin Spray-on Liner (TSL) is a relatively thin (2–5 mm) and fast-setting liner material used by spraying onto rock surfaces to support underground excavations. Areal support materials that are sprayed onto the rock, such a...
Estimation of rock mass rating values with geostatistical analysis
Özkan, Esma Selma; Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
The raw material of many goods, products, and equipment used by humankind on earth or even in space are obtained from extracted and enriched minerals from the surface or underground mines. A large proportion of the energy ...
Beneficiation of carbonaceous lead and zinc ores by a combined flotation and leaching method
Sarılar, Sena; Atalay, Mustafa Ümit.; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
Within the scope of this thesis study carbonaceous lead and zinc ore obtained from Yozgat – Akdağmadeni region of Turkey was used. Main objective of the study is to obtain lead concentrate at possible maximum grade and rec...
Mode I fracture toughness and tensile strength investigation on molded shotcrete brazilian specimen
Tayfuner, Tuğçe; Tutluoğlu, Levend; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
Tensile opening mode I loading state is important for shotcrete-concrete type materials, since these are weak under tension. Brazilian type splitting tests are commonly used for checking the structural effectiveness of con...
Obtaining hybrid fuel briquettes using local biomass and fossil fuel resources
Ulusoy Tasar, Aslı; Altun, N. Emre.; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
This study aims at obtaining a hybrid fossil fuel-biomass fuel by blending olive pomace and lignite in varying amounts (10-50% by weight). The main objective is to combine the positive characteristics of both fuel types to...
A New approach to 3-dimensional optimization of ultimate pit geometry for open pit mines with variable overall slope angles
Altuntov, Firdevs Kübra; Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
The mining activities have high economic risks and the determination of the optimum ultimate pit limit of an ore body greatly affects the economic feasibility of an open pit mine. Due to necessity of determining optimum pi...
Investigation of fracture toughness on flattened Brazilian disc type molded shotcrete specimens
Yoncacı, Selin; Tutluoğlu, Levend; Department of Mining Engineering (2019)
Monitoring behavior of cracks generated by various reasons in shotcrete/concrete is of crucial importance for the stability of structures in various industries. Despite the need of understanding the crack initiation and pr...
