Abstract

A site investigation campaign using cone penetration test (CPT), dilatometer test (DMT) are carried on alluvial deposits at a site located at Gemlik, Turkey towards the design of a newly planned hot reverse mill structure within the existing Borçelik steel factory. Site is located at the south of North Anatolian Fault that is sheared during 1999 Kocaeli Earthquake. In addition, the site is under the influence zone of another fault line going through the Gemlik Bay. Therefore, prediction of the behaviour of saturated alluvial deposits under a major expected design earthquake of the planned structures is the prime importance in terms of safety and meeting the performance criteria of the subject structures. Seismic cones (SCPT) and dilatometers (SDMT) together with spectral analysis of surface waves (SASW) are also carried out in order to obtain shear wave velocity profile for seismic modelling. Data obtain from CPT, DMT, SCPT, SDMT and SASW is used for subsoil geotechnical modeling. Soil models are also supported with SPT data and laboratory test results. Obtained Vs profiles with various techniques are compared for whole site models and between closely located investigation pairs.

Comparison of Dynamic Soil Modelling Using SCPT, SDMT and SASW

San Diego, California

A site investigation campaign using cone penetration test (CPT), dilatometer test (DMT) are carried on alluvial deposits at a site located at Gemlik, Turkey towards the design of a newly planned hot reverse mill structure within the existing Borçelik steel factory.
