Conservation and re-adaptation of industrial heritage has been a quite important aspect in the sense of continuity of the historic industrial character of the place for future generations. Industrial buildings usually lost their functions due to the fast technological developments and changing within production/consumption systems. This inevitable functional loss caused the obsolete structures which are regarded as industrial heritage. It is essential to conserve and recover the post-industrial landscapes t...
An Approach for improving energy efficiency in a commercial building with learning consideration and availability constraints
Çiçek, Cihan Tuğrul; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Department of Operational Research (2014)
Energy efficiency applications are increasingly becoming more popular as available natural resources such as natural gas and fossils have been running out. In this study, we address the scheduling problem of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system of a commercial building with a supporting automation system that controls the energy resources so as to increase energy efficiency. We formulate the problem as a multilevel generalized assignment model to obtain the schedule for the HVAC syste...
An approach for seismic damage assessment of residential buildings /
Demirci, Ceren; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
For developing countries in earthquake-prone regions, two main issues in seismic damage estimation are identification of seismic hazard in the region of interest and up-to-date information of the existing building stock. This study proposes an approach to handle these key issues and to obtain reliable measures for regional seismic damage estimation. The approach makes use of the basic structural information for different types of construction. This information can be readily available or may have been obtai...
An Energy and economic efficiency comparison of the building envelope of an apartment building in Ankara, Turkey
Ahmed Shorbagi, Mustafa Ibrahim Saeed; Zeytun Çakmaklı, Ayşem Berrin; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2014)
The main aim of this thesis is to study the energy and the economic performance of the building envelope of an apartment floor consisting of three flats in Etlik, Ankara. Three flats namely flat-1 facing South-West, flat-2 facing South-East and flat-3 facing North are considered. Three different glazing window types namely ISICAM KLASIK, ISICAM SINERJI and ISICAM SINERJI 3+ with different thermal transmittance values are investigated as well as the Base Case wall section, four wall sections involving Aerate...
A Framework for sustainable urban mobility in historic urban landscapes: a proposal for antalya kaleiçi
Uluç, Aynur; Bilgin Altınöz, Ayşe Güliz; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2014)
The main subject of the thesis is the mobility systems in historic urban landscapes. In this respect, the aim of the thesis is to provide “a framework for Sustainable Urban Mobility (SUM) in Historic Urban Landscapes (HULs)” together with the process, principles and tools that will solve the mobility problems while contributing to conservation and promotion its values and significance. In this regard, the thesis is structured mainly in two parts. In the first part, the current mobility systems, existing pro...
