Experimental study on hybrid precast tunnel segments reinforced by macro-synthetic fibres and glass fibre reinforced polymer bars
Tengilimoglu, Oguz; Akyüz, Uğurhan (2020-12-01)
Increasing the popularity of using fibres in precast structures has brought questions about their usability in segmental tunnel linings as an alternative to the conventional reinforced lining. Most prior studies have alrea...
Seismic retrofit of buildings with backbone dampers
Shaban, Nefize; Ozdemir, Seda; Caner, Alp; Akyüz, Uğurhan (2017-01-01)
Dampers have been effectively used in new designs and seismic retrofit of old structures in many parts of the world. The common seismic retrofit practice in Turkey is almost purely based on stiffening the structure with ad...
Remaining service life assessment of river bridges with cracked members
Ozdemir, S.; Topkara, N.; Yakut, Ahmet; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Caner, Alp (2016-06-30)
Forced Vibration Testing and Finite Element Modeling of a Nine-Story Reinforced Concrete Flat Plate-Wall Building
Çelik, Ozan Cem; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Akyüz, Uğurhan (SAGE Publications, 2015-05-01)
Tunnel form buildings, owing to their higher construction speed and quality, lower cost, and superior earthquake resistance over that of conventional reinforced concrete buildings, have been widely used for mass housing, u...
Lateral Response Comparison of Unbonded Elastomeric Bearings Reinforced with Carbon Fiber Mesh and Steel
Naghshineh, Ali Karimzadeh; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Caner, Alp (2015-01-01)
The vertical and horizontal stiffness used in design of bearings have been established in the last few decades. At the meantime, applicability of the theoretical approach developed to estimate vertical stiffness of the fib...
Seismic Resistance Evaluation of Traditional Ottoman Timber-Frame Himis Houses: Frame Loadings and Material Tests
Aktas, Yasemin Didem; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Türer, Ahmet; Erdil, Barış; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman (SAGE Publications, 2014-11-01)
Traditional Ottoman timber-frame houses ("himis") form the major part of the cultural heritage structures in Turkey. There are many studies in the literature regarding the seismic performance of himis houses, which claim t...
Comparison of fundamental properties of new types of fiber-mesh-reinforced seismic isolators with conventional isolators
Naghshineh, Ali Karimzadeh; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Caner, Alp (Wiley, 2014-02-01)
New types of fiber-reinforced rubber-based seismic isolators have been a research interest for a number of engineers in the past decade. These new types of isolators can have similar seismic performances compared with the ...
Confinement Effectiveness of CFRP in Axial Members under Various Loading Conditions
ERDİL, BARIŞ; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (2013-07-17)
In this study, parameters affecting the mechanical properties of FRP-confined cylindrical and prismatic concrete columns were studied via experimental data, which were collected after an extensive literature review. The pa...
CFRP-confined concrete columns under different environmental conditions
Erdil, Barış; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (Thomas Telford Ltd., 2013-06-01)
The behaviour of carbon fibre reinforced polymer-confined cylindrical and prismatic concrete specimens subjected to several different environmental conditions was investigated in four groups. The first group of specimens w...
Mechanical behavior of CFRP confined low strength concretes subjected to simultaneous heating-cooling cycles and sustained loading
Erdil, B.; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-01-01)
This study aims to present the mechanical behavior of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) reinforced low strength cylindrical and prism concrete specimens under both heating-cooling cycles and sustained loading. Heatin...
