Near East University Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering attended the 17th National Conference…Academic Member of Near East University Prof. Dr Cavit Atalar was presented an Award of Merit

Head of Earthquake and Soil Research and Evaluation Centre of Near East University and Head of Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, Prof. Dr. Cavit Atalar attended the 17th National Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering that was held at Istanbul University.

According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations of Near East University, the Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Society holds this conference biannually and recently the conference was completed over 20 sessions where more than 130 presentations were made. It was stated that Prof. Dr. Cavit Atalar attended the conference as a member of the Scientific Board and as the Chair of a Session.

At the conference to which Chair of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Prof. Dr. Charles Ng and Prof. Dr. Misko Cubrinovski from Canterbury University-New Zealand; Prof. Dr. Gökhan Baykal from Boğaziçi University; and Prof. Dr. Mehmet Berilgen and Ord. Prof. Dr. Hamdi Peynircioğlu from Yıldız Technical University attended, Prof. Dr. Cavit Atalar was presented a tie as the ‘symbol’ of the Society.

Jointly prepared by Prof. Dr. Braja Das and by Prof. Dr. Mustafa Akgün and Özkan Özdağ from Dokuz Eylül University; Hilmi Dindar and Arif Özyankı from Near East University, a presentation on “The classification of for fine-grained soil in Northern Nicosia by using Artificial neural networks.”

During the presentation, it was stated that the algorithm of artificial neural networks was used to make classification of fine-grained soil by considering Atterberg values. For this, sand, silt, clay, liquidity index and plasticity index values were obtained and by considering the grain distribution values at the first phase of the study, the liquidity and plasticity indexes were guessed. Later at the second phase of the study, these values were used to make soil classification.
