Assessment of damage zone thickness and wall convergence for tunnels excavated in strain-softening rock masses
Satici, Ozguer; Topal, Tamer (2021-02-01)
There are two fundamental issues in all underground excavations, which are safety and economy. To ensure safety and expedite excavations, level of tunnel wall convergences and damage zone thickness should be predicted before the excavation starts, should be determined accurately, and monitored during the excavation by the tunnel designer. However, accurate prediction of these two parameters is difficult unless in-situ stress and deformation measurement tools are used. In this study, damage zone thickness an...
Assessment of rock slope stability along the proposed Ankara-Pozanti autoroad in Turkey
Avci, Km; Akgün, Haluk; Doyuran, Vedat (1999-01-01)
The main objective of this study is the determination of the slope stability and excavatability category of discontinuous rock exposed between 53 + 000 and 58 + 000 km of the proposed Ankara-Pozanti autoroad in Turkey to provide secure access. The-study area is mostly in the outcrops of highly jointed sandstone with minor layers of marl. This Maastrichtian-Eocene Group also contains conglomerate and limestone bands of flysch character called the Pasadag Group. Quaternary alluvial deposits occur throughout t...
Assessment of core-filter configuration performance of rock-fill dams under uncertainties
Çalamak, Melih; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-04-01)
Probabilistic analyses are conducted for seepage through a rock-fill dam having two different core-filter configurations: one sloping and the other a central symmetrical core-filter arrangement. Uncertainties in core and filter are considered, assuming their hydraulic conductivities as random variables. For this purpose, finite-element software used for groundwater flow and seepage analyses is coupled with a random-number-generation algorithm. Monte Carlo simulations are performed for probabilistic seepage ...
