Wireless Monitoring of a Structural Beam To Be Used for Post-Earthquake Damage Assessment
Ozbey, Burak; Kurç, Özgür; Demir, Hilmi Volkan; Erturk, Vakur B.; Altintas, Ayhan (2018-06-01)
Wireless monitoring of a standard reinforced concrete beam is shown in a simply supported beam experiment. The passive nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) probes are attached on the reinforcing bars (rebars) within the beam...
A Wireless Metamaterial-Inspired Passive Rotation Sensor With Submilliradian Resolution
Gargari, Ali Maleki; Ozbey, Burak; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; Albostan, Utku; Kurç, Özgür; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET (2018-06-01)
A novel passive wireless rotation sensing system with high levels of sensitivity and resolution is proposed and demonstrated for measuring elastic-region bending in materials such as steel. This system is composed of a tra...
Nonlinear Seismic Dam and Foundation Analysis Using Explicit Newmark Integration Method with Static Condensation
Albostan, Utku; Bahcecioglu, Tunc; Arıcı, Yalın; Kurç, Özgür (Elsevier BV; 2017-09-13)
Engineers use the explicit Newmark integration method to analyze nonlinear dynamic problems. Instead of using computationally expensive global matrix assembly and factorization, the explicit integration method performs com...
Experimental investigation of wake flow field and wind comfort characteristics of fractal wind fences
Coskun, Semsi; Hazaveh, Hooman Amid; Uzol, Oğuz; Kurç, Özgür (Elsevier BV, 2017-09-01)
Wind fences are frequently utilized in many areas from agriculture to traffic safety in order to provide a sheltered region behind. The conventional geometry of wind fences are usually porous with circular or rectangular h...

An Electromagnetic Sensing System Incorporating Multiple Probes and Single Antenna for Wireless Structural Health Monitoring
Ozbey, Burak; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür (2017-03-24)
In this study, a wireless and passive displacement/strain sensing system is proposed for structural health monitoring (SHM). The wireless and passive interrogation of the sensing unit [a variant of a nested split-ring reso...
Multi-Point Single-Antenna Sensing Enabled by Wireless Nested Split-Ring Resonator Sensors
Ozbey, Burak; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Kurç, Özgür; ALTINTAŞ, AYHAN; DEMİR, Hilmi Volkan (2016-11-01)
In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point...
Application of 2D Digital Image Correlation Three Point Flexure Test of Reinforced Concrete Beam
Albostan, Utku; Kurç, Özgür (null; 2016-09-21)
Digital image correlation (DIC) method has been used in many disciplines to measure displacement and strain without any contact to the specimen. Moreover, it is usually a cheaper method when compared with other measurement...
Building-Information-Modeling-Based Earthquake Damage Assessment for Reinforced Concrete Walls
Anil, Engin Burak; Akinci, Burcu; Kurç, Özgür; Garrett, James H. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2016-07-01)
Engineering analysis to quantify the effects of earthquake forces on the structural strength of components requires determining the damage mode and severity of the components. The analysis requires strength computations an...
