A comparative structural and architectural analysis of earthquake resistant design principles applied in reinforced concrete residential buildings in Turkey
Özmen, Cengiz; Ünay, Ali İhsan; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2008)
The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that it is possible to design earthquake resistant residential structures without significant compromises in the spatial quality and economic viability of the building. The specific type of structural system that this thesis focuses on is the reinforced concrete skeleton system. The parametric examples and key studies that are used in this research are chosen among applied projects in the city of Bolu. This city is chosen due to its location on the North Anatolian Fa...
Detailed evaluation of an existing reinforced concrete building damaged under its own weight
Bayraktar, Atilla; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
A significant part of the Turkey’s building inventory consists of reinforced concrete frame structures. In addition to that a big part of the existing building inventory in Turkey shows insufficiency in seismic performance damage or failure of structures under their own loads has also been observed. The failure of Zümrüt Apartment building that occurred in 2004 in Konya and resulted in the death of 92 people brings the necessity of researches on robustness and reserve capacities of the buildings under gravi...
A comparative study on earthquake resistance of reinforced concrete and masonry residential buildings in small-scale cities of Turkey
Er Akan, Aslı; Ünay, Ali İhsan; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2008)
Today the vast majority of urban population in Turkey is living in multi-story apartment blocks constructed of reinforced concrete due to the fact that in the late 19th century concrete and steel took the place of traditional materials such as masonry. However, it cannot be denied that masonry is still a crucial material for load bearing walls, internal walls and cladding of buildings. In addition to this masonry construction system has many advantages. From the architectural point of view, it provides flex...
Strengthening Infilled RC Frames Against Biaxial Seismic Action
Demirel, İsmail Ozan; Yakut, Ahmet; Binici, Barış (null; 2018-08-29)
Infill walls are widely used as formation, isolation and separation of closed spaces in reinforced concrete (RC) buildings. Although they are passive members under gravity loads, they contribute to the structural response in case of lateral loading. Majority of the past research regarding seismic response of infilled frames is limited to in-plane contribution of infill walls to the structural response. Aiming identification of in-plane (IP) versus out-of-plane (OOP) interaction of infilled RC frames, an ext...
An Experimental study on usage of hollow glass spheres (HGS) for reducing mud density in low pressure reservoirs and lost circulation zones
Arı, T. Çağrı; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2014)
Drilling fluid is a fluid mixture that is used in oil and gas drilling operations. Generating hydrostatic pressure, carrying cuttings to the surface and maintaining wellbore stability is essential for a drilling fluid with its other important functions. For low pressure reservoirs, hydrostatic pressure that drilling fluid generated should be low. To achieve that, drilling fluid density should be lowered. However, use of drilling fluids with higher density than required could cause partial or complete loss o...
