Seismic Reliability of Highway Transportation Systems
Ozcan, Naz Topkara; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (2018-09-01)
Assessment of the reliability of lifelines under seismic loads requires particular attention, since the proper functioning of these systems during or after a destructive earthquake is very important. The main objective of ...
Evolution of seismic hazard maps in Turkey
AKKAR, DEDE SİNAN; EROĞLU AZAK, TUBA; Can, T.; Ceken, U.; Tumsa, M. B. Demircioglu; Duman, T. Y.; ERDİK, MUSTAFA ÖZDER; ERGİNTAV, SEMİH; Kadirioglu, F. T.; Kalafat, D.; Kale, O.; Kartal, R. F.; Kekovali, K.; Kilic, T.; Ozalp, S.; Poyraz, S. Altuncu; ŞEŞETYAN, KARİN; Tekin, S.; Yakut, Ahmet; et.al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-08-01)
A review on the historical evolution of seismic hazard maps in Turkey is followed by summarizing the important aspects of the updated national probabilistic seismic hazard maps. Comparisons with the predecessor probabilist...
Sensitivity of seismic hazard results to alternative seismic source and magnitude-recurrence models: a case study for Jordan
Yilmaz, Nazan; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (2015-07-03)
Influence of different models and assumptions with respect to seismic source modelling and magnitude distribution on seismic hazard results is examined, taking Jordan as a case study. Four alternative models, which are bas...
Comparison of loads in Turkish earthquake code with those computed statistically
Firat, Fatih K.; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (2015-05-01)
In this study, earthquake loads are investigated statistically and compared with the nominal earthquake loads calculated according to the Turkish Earthquake Code, namely: "Specifications for Structures to be Built in Earth...
Determination of Reliabffity Based New Load and Resistance Factors for Reinforced Concrete Structural Members
Firat, Fatih Kursat; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (2014-07-01)
In this study, a procedure for the determination of new load and resistance factors for reinforced concrete structural members is proposed in view of the fact that the design practice in Turkey has changed after the occurr...
Calibration of Turkish LRFD bridge design code for slab on steel plate girders
Koç, Arzu; Caner, Alp; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (IOS Press, 2013-01-01)
In Turkish design practice, slab on steel composite I-girder bridges have been designed to span between 50 and 80 meters. To date, modified versions of the AASHTOLFD (Load Factor Design) or ASD (Allowable Stress Design) re...
Robust estimation of magnitude-frequency relationship parameters
Yücemen, Mehmet Semih; Akkaya, Ahmet (2012-01-01)
The precise estimation of the a and b parameters of Richter's magnitude-frequency relationship is of primary importance, since the evaluation of seismicity and assessment of seismic hazard depend on these two parameters. I...
Spatial sensitivity of seismic hazard results to background seismic activity models
Yilmaz, N.; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (2011-08-04)
In the probabilistic seismic hazard analysis, the past earthquake records that can not be associated with any one of the specific faults are treated as background seismic activity. Contribution of background seismic activi...
Spatial sensitivity of seismic hazard results to different background seismic activity and temporal earthquake occurrence models
Yilmaz, Nazan; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (Elsevier BV, 2011-07-01)
Spatial sensitivity of seismic hazard results to different models with respect to background seismic activity and earthquake occurrence in time is investigated. For the contribution of background seismic activity to seismi...
Magnitude conversion problem for the Turkish earthquake data
Deniz, Aykut; Yücemen, Mehmet Semih (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-11-01)
Earthquake catalogues which form the main input in seismic hazard analysis generally report earthquake magnitudes in different scales. Magnitudes reported in different scales have to be converted to a common scale while co...
