. Studies
performed by TAKK are outlined below:
Providing solutions for the problems related with hydraulic structures by physical and/or
mathematical modeling,
Providing technical supports to units responsible for design and implementation by carrying
out researches through physical, mechanical, petrographical, etc. experiments on various
structural materials,
Examining all kind of structural materials used in DSİ projects with respect to lakes, rivers
and ground water resources,
Solving the problems that DSİ faces in the field of soil mechanics and foundation
engineering through experimental studies and resources,
Examining the radioactivity level of surface and ground water resources,
Solving the problems that DSİ faces with hydrological and hydro geological studies and
researches by applying environmental isotopes techniques,
Establishing new quality control laboratories in the central regional directorates, field
divisions and field sections where necessary and also carrying out repair, maintenance and
calibration of laboratory test equipment,
Training the laboratory staff members employed by quality control laboratories and supports
them technically according to specified training activities such as courses, seminars,
symposiums etc.
