Evaluation of alluvial deposits in Gemlik basin in terms of earthquake codes.
Avşar, Ulaş; Doyuran, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2006)
Gemlik County is located in the Marmara Region (NW Turkey), which has been affected by destructive earthquakes sourced from North Anatolian Fault System throughout its history. The bulk of the settlement rests on alluvial deposits of the Gemlik pull-apart basin. So, it is vital to investigate the foundation soils in this basin and the response of them to earthquakes. Many earthquake codes were established by the authorities in different countries of the world to estimate the possible ground shaking and seis...
Ground motion simulations based on regional input parameters and their impact on insurance premiums: Bursa case
Ünal, Barış; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Earthquake Studies (2015)
Determination of earthquake parameters are required for earthquake resistant design and retrofitting of exsisting structures. There are not many options to obtain earthquake data for regions with no or sparce earthquake recordings. Even though some methods are aplicable to these regions they generate only peak ground motion parameters. For cases that require the full ground motion simulations are necessary. Simulations can also be used for gaining knowledge about source, path and site effects. In this study...
Practical tools for ranking and selection of groundmotion prediction equations (GMPEs) for probabilistic seismic hazard assessment and development of a regional GMPE
Kale, Özkan; Akkar, Sinan; Danciu, Laurentiu; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
This study starts summarizing the progresses in ground-motion databases and ground-motion models in pan-European region and consequent seismic hazard comparisons conducted for individual local and global predictive models. Then, the study presents the compilation of the Middle East region and Turkish ground-motion databases with principle seismological features to be mainly used in predictive model selection process in these regions. In the following step, using a high standard subset of the Middle East gro...
Investigation of personal qualities contributing to psyhological resilience among earthquake survivors : a model testing study
Karaırmak, Özlem; Owen, Dean; Department of Educational Sciences (2007)
This study is designed to investigate the relationships among affective and cognitive personal qualities leading to psychological resilience among natural disaster survivors. The main assumption of this study is that positive personal qualities might be associated with better psychological adjustment. The study aimed at testing a hypothesized theoretical model accounting for resilience with regard to personal qualities. The sample for this study was composed of individuals who were exposed to earthquakes th...
Use of simulated strong ground motion records in earthquake engineering applications
Karimzadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
With the recent advances in scientific computing, ground motion simulations have become more common. However, use of simulated motions for earthquake engineering purposes is still not well investigated. In this thesis, the efficiency of records simulated with the stochastic finite-fault technique in seismic demand estimation is studied in two different earthquake engineering applications. First, vulnerability assessment in a selected region, Erzincan (Turkey) is performed with simple single-degree-of-freedo...
