A Study on the tensile strength of compacted Ankara clay and kaolin clay
Dağar, Volkan; Çokça, Erdal; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Tensile strength of clay, is a major mechanical parameter and is the main controlling parameter of tensile crack development which is generally encountered in geostructures. The researches to determine the tensile strength of clays are very limited. There are two kinds of methods which are used to measure the tensile strength of soils and these are named as, indirect and direct methods. In this experimental study, a direct tensile test apparatus was developed for measurement and understanding of the tensile...

A Critique on the Turkish Earthquake Code Regulations Regarding Masonry Construction
Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Ay, Bekir Özer (2008-11-07)
Masonry is still a commonly used type of residential construction in rural and even in urban regions. Unfortunately, the strength and stability of masonry structures are critical in the case of high amplitude cyclic lateral loads such as earthquake ground motion. Hence, the masonry buildings with structural deficiencies belong to the most vulnerable class of structures which have experienced heavy damage or even total collapse in previous earthquakes, especially in developing countries like Turkey. The dama...

An investigation on compatibility properties of exterior finish coats for insulated walls in terms of water vapour pemeability and modulus ofelasticity
Örs, Kerime; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2006)
The compatibility properties of some contemporary finish coats together with their complementary layers used in insulated exterior walls were examined in terms of water vapour permeability and modulus of elasticity. Basic physical and mechanical properties of some synthetic-, cement- and polymer-based external finish coats were analyzed in laboratory. Some additional samples, complementing the wall section, were also examined for their water vapour permeability. Results showed that the finish coats were hig...
