Bridge collapses in Turkey: causes and remedies
Schaap, Hulya Sonmez; Caner, Alp (Informa UK Limited, 2020-12-01)
Bridge collapses in Turkey have not been the subject of any comprehensive study so far. Investigations are often kept confidential for various reasons. As a result, most of the time only limited information can be found ab...
Augmented reality for bridge condition assessment using advanced non-destructive techniques
KILIÇ, GÖKHAN; Caner, Alp (Informa UK Limited, 2020-06-01)
Over the past years, a remarkable number of bridges have been collapsed or failed worldwide, underlying the growing importance of condition assessment of bridge structures within the context of health monitoring of structu...
Interview with IABSE Foundation Council Chair, Alp Caner

Condition factor for seismic performance of deteriorated bridges
Ocak, E. Canan; Caner, Alp (IOS Press, 2019-01-01)
Bridges located at moderately or highly aggressive environments can be subjected to different levels of deterioration. Deterioration can be observed as cracking or spalling of concrete and corrosion of reinforcement. Among...
Shake table tests of different seismic isolation systems on a large scale structure subjected to low to moderate earthquakes
Shahan, Nefize; Caner, Alp (2018-12-01)
Seismic isolation systems designed for extreme events may likely experience low to moderate earthquakes during the design life of the structure rather than the extreme event itself. In new seismic building design codes, lo...
Stability of Bridge Piers Subjected to a Probable Flood Event Followed by a Probable Seismic Event
Klzllduman, H. Sema; Yanmaz, Ali Melih; Caner, Alp (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-02-01)
Scour-induced reduction in bridge stability can develop vulnerabilities during a probable seismic event. This problem has been typically addressed by researchers as if these two extreme events have no joint probability of ...
In-Depth Investigation of Seismic Vulnerability of an Aging River Bridge Exposed to Scour
AVŞAR, ÖZGÜR; Atak, Bengi; Caner, Alp (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2017-10-01)
The stability and structural performance of aged structures under extreme events are rarely investigated. The severe deterioration in current condition of aged bridges can trigger premature failures under regular floods or...
A Comparative Study on Seismic Isolation Applications in Turkey
Akyüz, Uğurhan; Caner, Alp; Yakut, Ahmet (null; 2017-04-27)
Design of seismically isolated hospital structures have become popular in Turkey within last five years especially after Ministry of Health’s policy change. The new hospital complexes of about twenty campuses has been eith...
Development of mean site-dependent response spectra for new bridge designs in Turkey
Sarica, Gizem Mestav; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Caner, Alp (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
Bridges in Turkey have been designed using a modified version of AASHTO Load Factor Design Specifications. In this paper, a new design spectrum is being analysed to address the characteristics of the Turkish earthquake rec...
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...
