Estimation of seismic losses in urban regions within an interdisciplinary framework a case study

Abstract – The purpose of the study described in this article was to assess teachers’planning practices at the primary-school level in Turkey. Altogether 210 schools weresurveyed, a questionnaire was distributed to all teachers in these schools, and 1194teachers responded to the questionnaire. The results indicated that the main sourcesof influence on daily and unit plans are teachers’ experience, the national curriculumand the course textbooks. In daily planning, teachers assigned the highest level ofimportance to student characteristics and availability of learning materials, and thelowest level of importance to evaluation procedures and writing objectives. The mainproblems faced by teachers in planning were: the gap between the national curriculumand the classroom needs, difficulties in using the standard format for preparing plans,shortage of time and resources, insufficient support from principals and inspectors


Comparison of different yield criteria in various deep drawn cups
Cogun, Ferah; Darendeliler, Haluk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-03-01)
The aim of the study is to evaluate the performance of three recent yield criteria namely; BBC2008-8p, Yld2003-8p, Hu2003 through the simulation of the hemispherical, cylindrical and square cup drawing processes by comparing the results with the ones obtained by using the von Mises criterion for the isotropic, kinematic and combined hardening and the Hill'48 criterion. For this purpose, two different sheet materials, SS304 stainless steel and DKP6112 steel, and various punch travels were used in the simulat...
Site-specific uniform hazard spectrum in Eastern Turkey based on simulated ground motions including near-field directivity and detailed site effects
Sisi, Aida Azari; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-04-01)
In this study, stochastic earthquake catalog of the Erzincan region in Turkey is generated based on synthetic ground motions. Monte Carlo simulation method is used to identify the spatial and temporal distribution of events. Ground motion time histories are generated using stochastic simulation methodology. Annual exceedance rate of each ground motion amplitude is calculated through statistical distribution of the complete set of ground motions. The results are compared with classical probabilistic seismic ...
The relationship between human and nature -as conceptionalized by the representatives of the selected environmental NGOs in Turkey
Akman, Zeynep İdil; Kalaycıoğlu, Hediye Sibel; Department of Social Policy (2011)
This thesis studies the perceptions of the selected representatives of environmental non-governmental organizations’ (NGO) about the human and nature relationship in Turkey. The representatives of the NGOs’ perceptions about human-nature relationship are studied refering to four dimensions, Production and Consumption processes, Energy Production, role of Science and Technology, and the concept of Sustainability. Approaches of the NGOs about Policies and the Activities of Environmental NGOs in Turkey are als...

Objectives: To investigate, first, the effects of septal deviation and concha bullosa on nasal airflow, and second, the aerodynamic changes induced by septoplasty and partial lateral turbinectomy, using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Assessment of Factors Negatively Affecting the Communication Process in Turkish State Universities
Gizir, Sıddıka; Şimşek, Hasan; Department of Educational Sciences (2005)
The purpose of this study is twofold: to assess the relationships among factors negatively affecting communication process in Turkish state universities and to test a hypothetical model drawn from a qualitative case study done by Gizir (1999). The sample of the study consisted of 480 faculty members employed in seven public universities representing seven regions of Turkey. As an instrument, أInventory of Communication Analysis in Academic Contextؤ, which was developed by the researcher by using the qualita...
