Tensile behavior of chemically bonded post-installed anchors in low strength reinforced concretes

Mazılıgüney, Levent
After the 1999 Kocaeli Earthquake, the use of chemically bonded post-installed anchors has seen a great growth for retrofits in Turkey. Currently, chemically bonded post-installed anchors are designed from related tables provided by adhesive manufacturers and a set of equations based on laboratory pullout tests on normal or high strength concretes. Unfortunately, concrete compressive strengths of existing buildings, which need retrofit for earthquake resistance, ranges within 5 to 16 MPa. The determination of tensile strength of chemically bonded anchors in low-strength concretes is an obvious prerequisite for the design and reliability of retrofit projects. Since chemically bonded anchors result in the failure of concrete, adhesive-concrete interface or anchored material, the ultimate resistance of anchor can be predicted through the sum of the contributions of concrete strength, properties of anchored material (which is steel for this work), and anchorage depth. In this work, all three factors and the predictions of current tables and equations related to anchorages are examined throughout site tests.


Settlement behaviour of concrete faced rockfill dams : a case study
Özkuzukıran, Rıza Savaş; Özkan, M. Yener; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
In this study settlement behaviour of Kürtün dam, which is the first concrete faced rockfill dam in Turkey, is investigated. Two dimensional plane strain finite element analyses are carried out in order to determine the total stresses and displacements during construction and reservoir filling conditions. Hardening soil model is used in order to represent the non-linear, inelastic and stress dependent behaviour of rockfill material. Material model parameters are selected mainly referring to the previous stu...
Performance evaluation of existing medium rise reinforced concrete buildings according to 2006 Turkish Seismic Rehabilitation Code
Düzce, Zeynep; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
Linear elastic and nonlinear analysis procedures of 2006 Turkish Seismic Rehabilitation Code are applied to medium rise reinforced concrete buildings. In this study, four storey residential buildings are designed according to the 1998 and 1975 Turkish Seismic Design Codes, and the analysis procedures are verified on these case studies. In addition to these buildings, the analysis procedures are tested on an existing school building before and after retrofitting. The assessment procedures employed in the 200...
Semi-distributed hydrologic modeling studies in Yuvacik basin
Yener, Mustafa Kemal; Şorman, Ali Ünal; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In this study, Yuvacık Basin, which is located in southeastern part of Marmara Region of Türkiye, is selected as the application basin and hydrologic modeling studies are performed for the basin. Basin is divided into three subbasins such as: Kirazdere, Kazandere, and Serindere and each subbasin is modeled with its own parameters. In subbasin and stream network delineation HEC-GeoHMS software is used and for the hydrologic modeling studies the new version of HEC-HMS hydrologic modeling software released in ...
Fiber reinforced polymer confined rc circularcolumns subjected to axial load and bending moment
Doruk, Koray; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
Fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) have gained increasing popularity in upgrades of reinforced structural elements due to high strength to weight ratio and ease of application. In this study, the effectiveness of the carbon reinforced polymer wrapping (CFRP) on ductility and strength of circular reinforced concrete columns, made of low strength concrete, is presented. Four circular reinforced columns with similar dimensions, longitudinal and confining steel reinforcement were tested under combined axial load ...
Mechanical properties of cfrp anchorages
Özdemir, Gökhan; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
Due to inadequate lateral stiffness, many reinforced concrete buildings are highly damaged or collapsed in Turkey after the major earthquake. To improve the behavior of such buildings and to prevent them from collapse, repair and/or strengthening of some reinforced concrete elements is required. One of the strengthening techniques is the use of CFRP sheets on the existing hollow brick masonry infill. While using the CFRP sheets their attachment to both structural and non-structural members are provided by C...
