The Making Of The Commercial Center In Tire (14th – 16th Centuries)

Yüksel, Çağla Caner
Today Tire is one of the administrative districts under the city of İzmir. Located southeast of İzmir, it is situated on the southern edge of the Küçük Menderes Plain and the northern fringe of the Güme Mountains (Figure 1). It is surrounded by the neighboring administrative districts of Bayındır to the north about 18 km away, Ödemiş to the northeast and east about 35 km away, and Selçuk to the west about 40 km away (Figure 2). The town is renowned for its lively traditional markets, particularly open air bazaars held once a week. Rich both in food products and in traditional handcrafts, these markets are still significant nodes of attraction in the region (2). This article reveals how the markets of Tire came on the scene back in the 14th – 16th centuries. It sheds light on the making of the town’s commercial center in the given periods that correspond to two distinctive, yet consecutive eras of first the Aydınid Principality and next the Ottoman rule.


Ground vibration assessment at y-3 panel of Tunçbilek open pit lignite mine
Büyükyıldırım, Kürşad; Bilgin, Hasan Aydın; Department of Mining Engineering (2005)
Yörgüç village is within the close neighbourhood of the Western Lignite Corporation Y-3 panel. Although the nearest part of the mine is 1100 m and the farthest part is 2500 m from the village at present, some of the villagers complained about the ground vibration at the past. Therefore the assessment of damage risk and, if any, control and minimization of vibrations constitutes the aim and the scope of this research work. The researh work consists of monitoring of vibration, characterising of the seismic wa...

The Denizli graben-horst system and the eastern limit of western Anatolian continental extension: basin fill, structure, deformational mode, throw amount and episodic evolutionary history, SW Turkey
Kocyigit, A (Informa UK Limited, 2005-05-01)
The Denizli graben-horst system (DGHS) is located at the eastern-southeastern converging tips of three well-identified major grabens, the Gediz, the Kucuk Menderes and the Buyuk Menderes grabens, in the west Anatolian extensional province. It forms a structural link between these grabens and the other three NE-NW-trending grabens-the Civril, the Acigol and the Burdur grabens-compri sing the western limb of the Isparta Angle. Therefore, the DGHS has a critical role in the evolutionary history of continental ...
Assessment of consolidation settlements in Karacabey soft clays: Estimated and monitored behaviour
Çelik, Gözde; Topal, Tamer; Erol, Ahmet Orhan; Department of Geological Engineering (2020-9)
Settlement of highway embankments constructed over clayey soft soils is a major problem encountered in maintaining highway facilities. Accurate estimation of consolidation settlement amounts and times has been a challenge for engineers in practice. In this study, field settlement measurements of 26 stations between 600 and 750 days of durations in Karacabey NC clays and comparison of these measured magnitudes of settlements with calculated settlements from oedometer tests are assessed. The correlation betwe...
Ege Taşrasında “Modern”in Mitleşmesi: Kemer (Bozdoğan, Aydın) Ve Demirköprü (Salihli, Manisa) Baraj Siteleri Ve Lojmanları
Ünsal Gülmez, Nilay (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2015-12-15)
Dam projects examined in this text involve not only the construction of the dam itself but also the construction of a settlement, almost a microcosmos that would meet all the needs of the employee during the construction and later performance of the setting. Kemer and Demirkopru dam sites and lodgings, which were constructed in the 1950's, share both contextual and formal features. Moreover, both are examined as genuine cases within the general framework of "workers' housing" providing accommodation for the...
