Bacterial weathering plays a significant role in rock weathering, yet only a limited number of studies were conducted on this topic. The recent rapid developments in geomicrobiology are expected to increase the pace of research in this area. The extent and duration of the biological weathering processes on mineral and rock samples and minerals pref...
Article
Several critical studies have recently focused on the recycling of industrial waste materials owing to their storage problems. Considering the increase in supply and demand for aggregate and limited natural raw materials, researchers have focused on producing artificial aggregates with low energy usage and environmental friendliness. Therefore, indu...
Article
In recent years, the use of geopolymer materials for ground improvement has increased with the growth in the construction sector. The lignite coal used in the thermal power plants in Turkey has low-calorie content. Thus, fly ash from these thermal power plants has high-lime content, making it unsuitable for cement production or as a cement additive...

The wind acts as a land-shaping agent in desert and coastal regions, with more significant effects on soft, porous rocks than on massive rock formations. Air-suspended particles degrade rock surfaces, form cavities, and produce drift channels; however, abrasions that have been formed without the impacts of suspended particles are occasionally obser...

Bacterial weathering, a subdivision of biological weathering, which plays a significant role in rock weathering, has increasing importance recently. Although there are a limited number of studies conducted on this topic, with the help of rapid improvement of Geomicrobiology, several studies gain pace. However, because of the wide variety of both ba...

Understanding the effects of freezing and thawing on base soil and filling materials is critical for construction stabilisation and environmental considerations. We have examined the effects of freezing and thawing on the physico-mechanical behaviours of clayey soils. A total of 64 moulded samples of high plasticity clay (CH) and clayey sand (SC) s...

In the historic masonry structures, hard and large rock fragments were used as the construction materials. The hydraulic binder material prepared to keep this used material in its entirety is a different material than the cement used today. Khorasan mortar made by using aggregate and lime exhibits a more flexible structure than the concrete. This f...
Article
In recent years, due to an increase in the number of tourists and music concerts in historical areas and a rise in the noise level caused by transport in these regions, an increase in noise-induced damage has been seen in historic structures. In the literature, few studies have examined the impact of sound sources on old buildings. In this study, t...

Küfeki stone (fossiliferous limestone), known as “Mactra limestone,” “Lumesel limestone” and “Bakırköy stone,” used by the Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans in the Marmara region as a natural building stone, is still being utilized in the construction sector due to its easy processing. Küfeki stone was the main building material of the architects dur...

Turkey's plants are fired by lignite, producing class C fly ash containing a high percentage of lime. Sulphate and alkali levels are also higher in class C fly ashes. Therefore, fly ash is, commonly, unsuitable as an additive in cement or concrete in Turkey. In this study, highly alkaline fly ash obtained from the Yenikoy thermal power plants is co...

Full-text available
Contemporarily, there are 16 coal-burning thermal power plants currently operating in Turkey. This number is expected to rise to 46 in the future. Annually, about 15 million tons of fly ash are removed from the existing thermal power plants in Turkey, but a small proportion of it, 2%, is recyclable. Turkey’s plants are fired by lignite, producing C...

Alkali aggregate reaction is a chemical reaction that occurs between the reactive component of the aggregate and alkali hydroxide from the cement used in concrete or external source. In this study, the accelerated mortar bar tests were performed and their results were compared with each other in order to investigate the ratio of reactive aggregate...

Volcanic units in the remaining region among Gediz valley, Kula, Karatas and Demirköprü Dam is very important in the western Anatolia. A large part of the volcanic field is in the town of Kula while a smaller part is located within the boundaries of Salihli. In the region, volcanic cones, lava flows, tuff covers and basalt plateaus are mainly struc...

In this study, the accelerated mortar bar tests were performed and compared their results with each other in order to investigate the ratio of reactive aggregate which causing maximum expansion in mortar and called a pessimum ratio in literature. For this purpose, the pessimum ratios of the six different reactive aggregates (Opal nodule, chert, cha...
