Wave Mechanics and Hydrodynamic Wave Forces in Drinking Water under the Lake Pipeline in Burdur Lake – Turkey

Abstract

Burdur Lake is one of the largest lakes of Turkey consisting of about 23 700 ha. Unfortunately, Burdur Lake area and the lake depth decrease each year. Additionally, the salinity increased twice in 30 years because of the aridity. Burdur Municipality Drinking Water Pipeline had been constructed under Burdur Lake in 2002. Groundwater drained from deep wells was flowed to Burdur city under Burdur Lake. Burdur drinking water pipe line under Burdur Lake was broken to pieces during the storms in 2008, 2010 and 2013.

In this study, the stability analyses of Burdur Drinking Water Underlake Pipeline system were made for 2002-2008, 2008-2010 and 2010-2013 time periods by using the techniques of wave mechanics. Stability analysis was also made for the pipeline in the ditch with the gabions as a projection. Horizontal and vertical wave forces, weights of the cement bags and marble filled gabions were used at the calculations of wave mechanics. Soil mechanics parameters of the Burdur Lake and water hammer effect of the drinking water in the pipe line were also investigated in the content of this study.

Burdur Lake’s depth decreases every year because of the aridity, so the horizontal and vertical wave forces over the pipeline increase due to the decrease of the depth. Burdur Municipality could not use this pipeline system, so pipeline system must be placed in a ditch and suitable gabions that must be used in order to obtain the stability.
