A questionnaire study on yachting in Göcek Bays

Demircioğlu, Çağdaş
Yachting known as a relatively old and an expensive leisure activity, due to recent developments of technology and construction techniques has become accessible to a wider range of people. Mediterranean coasts have a great importance among the world yachters. There is a congestion of yacht traffic in the western and middle Mediterranean marinas, so the yachters tend to go to the Eastern Mediterranean including the Turkish coasts. Göcek is the most popular yachting region in Turkey with its sheltered bays, natural beauties and archeological heritage. Göcek Bays are among the first group of Specially Protected Areas declared in Turkey. Yachting activity in summer months has been an ever-increasing use. At present, there exists a very low level of managerial effort for limiting the environmental impacts of boating activities in Göcek Bays. The uncontrolled yachting in Göcek Bays presents a growing pressure on the environment, and the coastal and marine ecosystem. On the other hand, it contributes to decreasing the quality of holidays due to congestion, noise and water pollution. The aim of this thesis is to produce information that would contribute to a future regional yacht tourism management plan for Göcek Bays. To determine the preferences and evaluations of the yachters about this region two surveys have been carried out during the summers of 2000 and 2001. During these surveys questionnaires were distributed to the users and their priorities of several items were asked. Besides some demographic information about the user was obtained.

Some attempts have been made to create a univer...

İnternet tabanlı sunulan ürün ve hizmetlerin, bilgi ve iletişim teknolojileri (BİT) gömülü cihazlar üzerinden kullanımının ülkemizde gün geçtikçe yaygınlaştığı ve günlük hayatımızda daha çok yer kapladığı aşikârdır. Hemen her fonksiyonun yazılımlarla çözülmeye başlandığı bu ürünlerde fiziki görünüm giderek sadeleşmekte ancak yapılabilen işlev sayısı artmaktadır.

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...
