GIS-based landslide susceptibility mapping for a problematic segment of the natural gas pipeline, Hendek (Turkey)
Cevik, E; Topal, Tamer (2003-11-01)
A segment of natural gas pipeline was damaged due to landsliding near Hendek. Re-routing of the pipeline is planned, but it requires the preparation of a landslide susceptibility map. In this study, the statistical index (Wi) and weighting factor (Wf) methods have been used with GIS to prepare a landslide susceptibility map of the problematic segment of the pipeline. For this purpose, thematic layers including landslide inventory, lithology, slope, aspect, elevation, land use/land cover, distance to stream,...

GIS-based structural performance Assessment of Sakarya City after 1999 Kocaeli-Turkey earthquake from geotechnical and earthquake engineering point of view
Yılmaz, Zeynep; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
The August 17, 1999 Kocaeli-Turkey Earthquake (Mw=7.4) caused severe damage to the structures and lifelines in the Marmara region. Soil liquefaction was identified as one of the major causes of this damage. The aim of this study is to determine geotechnical and earthquake engineering factors that contribute to the structural damage observed in Sakarya city after 1999 Kocaeli Earthquake. For this purpose, the results of an extensive field investigation program compiled by General Directorate of Disaster Affa...
GIS based seismic hazard mapping of Turkey
Yunatcı, Ali Anıl; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Rojay, Fuat Bora; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Efficiency of probabilistic seismic hazard analysis mainly depends on the individual successes of its complementing components; such as source characterization and ground motion intensity prediction. This study contributes to major components of the seismic hazard workflow including magnitude – rupture dimension scaling relationships, and ground motion intensity prediction. The study includes revised independent models for predicting rupture dimensions in shallow crustal zones, accompanied by proposals for ...
GIS-based environmental assessment of wind energy systems for spatial planning: A case study from Western Turkey
Aydin, Nazli Yonca; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Duzgun, Sebnem (2010-01-01)
Increasing population and life standards causes fossil fuel consumption to increase. Due to this increasing consumption, fossil fuels are being depleted rapidly. In addition to rapid exhaustion, another important problem associated with fossil fuels is that their consumption has major negative impacts on the environment. Therefore, many countries around the world have included renewable energy systems (RES) in their future energy plans so that they can produce reliable and environmentally friendly energy. P...
