Cyclic response of saturated silts
Saglam, Selman; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-01)
Softening and strength loss of sands with increasing excess pore water pressure under repeated loads is well-known. However, extensive damage to the built environment also occurs at the sites underlain by fine grained soil...
Site classification of Turkish national strong-motion stations
Sandikkaya, M. Abdullah; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, Oezdogan (2010-07-01)
Since 1973, the General Directorate of Disaster Affairs of Turkey has deployed several strong-motion accelerographs at selected sites. Within the framework of the project entitled Compilation of National Strong Ground Moti...
Capacity of shallow foundations on saturated cohesionless soils under combined loading
Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık (Canadian Science Publishing, 2009-06-01)
Under seismically induced loading, shallow foundations commonly fail by overturning on saturated soils. While the excess pore pressures may have fully dissipated following construction, undrained conditions are typically p...
Defect Cause Modeling with Decision Tree and Regression Analysis
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Batmaz, İnci; Gunturkun, F. A.; Ipekci, T. A.; KÖKSAL, GÜLSER; Özdemirel, Nur Evin (2006-12-10)
The main aim of this study is to identify the most influential variables that cause defects on the items produced by a casting company located in Turkey. To this end, one of the items produced by the company with high defe...
Discussion of "Liquefaction-induced lateral spreading at Izmit Bay during the Kocaeli (Izmit)-Turkey earthquake" by K. Onder Cetin, T. Leslie Youd, Raymond B. Seed, Jonathan D. Bray, Jonathan P. Stewart, H. Turan Durgunoglu, W. Lettis, and M. Tolga Yilmaz
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Saglam, Selman (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2006-07-01)
This paper presents a study of liquefaction-induced lateral ground displacements along the coast of Izmit Bay during the 1999 Kocaeli (Izmit)-Turkey earthquake. The paper discusses: (1) observed ground displacements after ...
Discussion of "High-modulus columns for liquefaction mitigation" by James R. Martin II, C. Guney Olgun, James K. Mitchell, and H. Turan Durgunoglu
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2006-07-01)
This paper presents the performance of a shopping complex in Turkey where the soils were improved with jet-grout columns and preload fills and subjected to the 1999 Kocaeli Earthquake (M=7.4). Under construction at the tim...
Discussion of "Subsurface characterization at ground failure sites in Adapazari, Turkey" by Jonathan D. Bray, Rodolfo B. Sancio, Turan Durgunoglu, Akin Onalp, T. Leslie Youd, Jonathan P. Stewart, Raymond B. Seed, Onder K. Cetin, Ertan Bol, M. B. Baturay, C. Christensen, and T Karadayilar - July 2004, vol. 130, no. 7, pp. 673-685.
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2006-04-01)
Ground failure in Adapazari, Turkey during the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake was severe. Hundreds of structures settled, slid, tilted, and collapsed due in part to liquefaction and ground softening. Ground failure was more sever...
Reply to: Discussion of "Re-examination of damage distribution in Adapazari: Geotechnical considerations"
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT; Yakut, Ahmet; Gulkan, P (Elsevier BV, 2006-02-01)
Re-examination of damage distribution in Adapazari: Geotechnical considerations
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT; Yakut, Ahmet; Gulkan, P (Elsevier BV, 2005-06-01)
The role of ground conditions in damage distribution patterns of buildings in the city of Adapazari during the 17 August 1999 Izmit (Kocaeli) earthquake (M-w 7.4) is investigated. Damage was concentrated in the central dis...
Analysis of a highway embankment failure associated with the 1999 Duzce, Turkey earthquake
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Akis, E (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-01)
An embankment slope on a major highway totally collapsed during 12 November 1999 Duzce earthquake (M-w = 7.1) due to the intense near field ground motion. The slope had performed satisfactorily, without even minor deformat...
