Zeynep Yıldırım leading Start-Up Coded BAP Project

Zeynep Yıldırım is leading a Start up (SUP) -coded BAP Project entitled Two-dimensional (2D) & Three-dimensional (3D) Effects on Stability Analysis of Slopes and Slopes Stabilized With Piles. The project budget is approximately 275K and will continue through 2022.

In the duration of her industry experience, Dr. Yıldırım was involved with the engineering and analysis of slopes and has encountered the problem of slope stabilized with piles in nearshore levees. This idea inspired the project. The research project will investigated 2D and 3D effects on stability of slopes with various geometries. Slope stabilization techniques will be investigated.

This project facilitated the first – numerical analysis laboratory in geotechnical engineering at Boğaziçi University. The newly created research environment facilitates the use of various geotechnical programs including but not limited to  academic perpetual licenses for 12 –users for both 2D FEM & 3D FEM.

Our MSc Students Eyüp Polat , Umut Gergin & Emre Tekdemir are actively participating in the research project.
