Earthquake Focal Mechanism And Stress Tensor Analysisalong The Central Segment Of The North Anatolian Fault

Karasozen, Ezgi 01 July 2010 (has links) (PDF)
The North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is one of the world&rsquo / s largest active continental strikeslip faults, and forms the northern margin of the Anatolian plate. Although its geologic and geomorphologic features are well defined, crustal deformation and associated seismicity around central segment of the NAF is relatively less-known. In this study, we analyzed locations and focal mechanisms of 172 events with magnitude &ge / 3, which are recorded by 39 broadband seismic stations deployed by the North Anatolian Passive Seismic Experiment (2005-2008). Distribution of the events shows that the local seismicity in the area is widely distributed, suggesting a widespread continental deformation, particularly in the southern block. For the entire data set, P- and S- arrival times are picked and events are relocated using the HYPOCENTER program. Then, relocated events which have a good azimuthal coverage with a maximum gap of 120&deg / and at least 13 P- wave readings are selected and 1-D inversion algorithm, VELEST, is used to derive the 1-D seismic velocity model of the region. The final model with updated locations is later put together to the FOCMEC program, to obtain focal mechanisms solutions. In this step, an iterative scheme is applied by increasing the number of data errors. To obtain more unique solutions, first motions of P and SH v phases are used along with SH/P amplitude ratios. Resultant 109 well-constrained focal mechanisms later used to perform stress tensor inversion across the region. Our focal mechanisms suggest a dominant strike-slip deformation along two major fault sets in the region. In the east, E-W trending splays (Ezinepazari, Almus, and La&ccedil / in Kizilirmak) show right-lateral strike-slip motion similar to the NAF whereas in the west, N-S trending faults (Dodurga, Eldivan) show left lateral strike-slip motion. Overall, stress orientations are found as: maximum principal stress, &sigma / 1, is found to be subhorizontal striking NW-SE, the intermediate principle stress, &sigma / 2, is vertically orientated and the minimum principal stress, &sigma / 3, is found to be NE &ndash / SW striking, consistent with the strike-slip regime of the region.

An Integrated Seismic Hazard Framework For Liquefaction Triggering Assessment Of Earthfill Dams&#039 / Foundation Soils

Unsal Oral, Sevinc 01 February 2009 (has links) (PDF)
Within the confines of this study, seismic soil liquefaction triggering potential of a dam foundation is assessed within an integrated probabilistic seismic hazard assessment framework. More specifically, the scheme presented hereby directly integrates effective stress-based seismic soil liquefaction triggering assessment with seismic hazard analysis framework, supported by an illustrative case. The proposed methodology successively, i) processes the discrete stages of probabilistic seismic hazard workflow upon seismic source characterization, ii) numerically develops the target elastic acceleration response spectra for typical rock sites, covering all the earthquake scenarios that are re-grouped with respect to earthquake magnitude and distance, iii) matches the strong ground motion records selected from a database with the target response spectra for every defined scenario, and iv) performs 2-D equivalent linear seismic response analyses of a 56 m high earth fill dam founded on 24 m thick alluvial deposits. Results of seismic response analyses are presented in the form of annual probability of excess pore pressure ratios and seismically-induced lateral deformations exceeding various threshold values. For the purpose of assessing the safety of the dam slopes, phi-c reduction based slope stability analyses were also performed representing post-liquefaction conditions. After having integrated this phi-c reduction analyses results into the probabilistic hazard framework, annual probabilities of factor of safety of slopes exceeding various threshold values were estimated. As the concluding remark, probability of liquefaction triggering, induced deformations and factor of safeties are presented for a service life of 100 years. It is believed that the proposed probabilistic seismic performance assessment methodology which incorporates both phi-c reduction based failure probabilities and seismic soil liquefaction-induced deformation potentials, provides dam engineers a robust methodology to rationally quantify the level of confidence with their decisions regarding if costly mitigation of dam foundation soils against seismic soil liquefaction triggering hazard and induced risks is necessary.

Neotectonics Of The Karamik Graben-afyon- (isparta Angle), Sw Turkey

Cicek, Aydin 01 July 2009 (has links) (PDF)
ABSTRACT NEOTECTONICS OF THE KARAMIK GRABEN-AFYON-(ISPARTA ANGLE), SW TURKEY &Ccedil / i&ccedil / ek, Aydin M.Sc., Department of Geological Engineering Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Ali Ko&ccedil / yigit July 2009, 98 pages The Karamik Graben (KG) is 6-17-km-wide, 29-km-long and NNE-SSWtrending active depression located within the Isparta Angle of the Southwestern Turkey extensional neotectonic domain. The KG is bounded by ENE-SSWtrending Karaca&ouml / ren fault zone to the south, the NNE-SSW-trending Ko&ccedil / beyli- Akkonak fault zone to the east, the WNW-ESE-trending AkSehir fault zone to the north, and the NE-SW to NNE-SSW-trending Devederesi fault zone to the west. The KG contains two graben infills separated by an angular unconformity: (1) Middle Miocene-Middle Pliocene deformed infill, and (2) the Upper Pliocenerecent non-deformed infill. Some geological structures reveal that the older infill was accumulated under the control of an extensional tectonic regime (phase-I extension). Analysis of NW-SE-trending folds and some strike-slip faults indicate that the older infill deformed by a short-term NE-SW-directed compression. This contractional event is the last record of the paleotectonic period. Some geological and geophysical evidence indicate that the younger infill has been deposited under the control of an extensional tectonic regime (phase-II extension). Analysis of some slickensides implies that the current tectonic regime is being characterized by a multi-directional extension in predominantly N-S, E-W and NW-SE directions. This multi-directional extension dominates the Plio- Quaternary neotectonic period initiated Late Pliocene. Total throw amounts accumulated along the margin boundary faults imply that subsidence rates are ~0.15 mm/yr and ~0.21 mm/yr since Late Pliocene. Some of the northern margin-boundary faults of the KG reactivated during the neotectonic period as evidenced by 2002.02.02 Mw = 6.5 &Ccedil / ay earthquake. However, the rest of these faults are still active and they keep their nature of seismic gap.

Analysis Of Seismic Behavior Of Underground Structures: A Case Study On Bolu Tunnels

Ertugrul, Niyazi 01 December 2010 (has links) (PDF)
In today&rsquo / s world, buried structures are used for a variety of purposes in many areas such as transportation, underground depot areas, metro stations and water transportation. The serviceability of these structures is crucial in many cases following an earthquake / that is, the earthquake should not impose such damage leading to the loss of serviceability of the structure. The seismic design methodology utilized for these structures differs in many ways from the above ground structures. The most commonly utilized approach in dynamic analysis of underground structures is to neglect the inertial forces of the substructures since these forces are relatively insignificant contrary to the case of surface structures. In seismic design of these underground structures, different approaches are utilized like free-field deformation approach and soil-structure interaction approach. Within the confines of this thesis, seismic response of highway tunnels is considered through a case study on Bolu Tunnels, which are well documented and subjected to D&uuml / zce earthquake. In the analyses, the seismic response of a section of the Bolu tunnels is examined with 2-D finite element models and results are compared with the recorded data to evaluate the capability of the available analysis methods. In general, the results of analyses did not show any distinct difference from the recorded data regarding the seismic performance of the analyzed section and that the liner capacities were sufficient, which is consistent with the post earthquake condition of the Bolu Tunnels.
