A spectroscopic analysis of clay types and silty sand from Oltu/Erzurum (Turkey) region reinforcing with marble dust and waste tire

Zeynep Aygün, Necmi Yarbaşı


In the present study, it has been aimed to give a comprehensive analysis of unreinforced and reinforced materials (with waste tire and marble dust additions in different amounts); clays (green and red) and silty sand, obtained from Oltu/Erzurum region which consists of Oligocene lower upper sedimentary units, volcanic rocks and upper sedimentary units. In order to investigate the magnetic properties of these samples electron paramagnetic resonance has been used, to see the crystalline nature x-ray diffraction has been performed, to observe the surface morphology scanning electron microscope has been used and to learn the elemental compositions energy dispersive spectroscopy has been preferred.
