Rubble-mound breakwaters are subject not only to wave action but, also, to other types of environmental loading, such as earthquakes. The design of coastal structures should take into account the most relevant factors in each case, including seismic loading. The objective of this study is to present the dynamic response of breakwaters during earthquakes. An experimental work has been carried out for homogeneous breakwater structures for different seismic frequencies and amplitudes. However this paper has presented preliminary results of the study about seismic response of the rubble-mound breakwaters yet.


The spatial and temporal variability of limnological properties of a very large and deep reservoir
Soyupak, S; Yemisen, D; Mukhallalati, L; Erdem, S; Akbay, N; Yerli, S (1998-01-01)
The reservoir of Keban Dam is a very deep and large water body of temperate zone exhibiting special characteristics with respect to its limnological properties. One of the major characteristics is the development and seasonal persistence of metalimnetic oxygen minima. This characteristic has been observed for three consecutive years. Spatial heterogeneity with respect to several parameters was another distinct property that has been clearly identified. The long term study has identified the existence of an ...
An experimental study on geotextile-soil filter system
Gül, Sevil; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-10-21)
Filters have been used in earth structures such as retaining walls, earth dams etc. to prevent the loss of particles induced by seepage of water. Traditionally granular filter materials are used, however, they are becoming more difficult to obtain and transport to the construction site and transportation of granular material raise the cost of construction and carbon footprint of the project. Therefore, the need for an alternative filter material arises, and geotextiles can be considered as one of the best o...
Determination of geostatistically representative sampling locations in Porsuk Dam Reservoir Turkey
Aksoy, Ayşegül; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem (2013-09-13)
Several factors such as wind action, bathymetry and shape of a lake/reservoir, inflows, outflows, point and diffuse pollution sources result in spatial and temporal variations in water quality of lakes and reservoirs. The guides by the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Health Organization to design and implement water quality monitoring programs suggest that even a single monitoring station near the center or at the deepest part of a lake will be sufficient to observe long-term trends if th...

This study aims to evaluate the effect of horizontal irregularities and base isolation configuration on the seismic response of reinforced concrete base-isolated buildings. A set of structural models with varying re-entrant corner geometric properties has been utilized to make evaluations with respect to square-symmetric ordinary form. In addition to this set, alternative models with non-uniform mass distributions in the plan have also been employed to expand the building set. Elastic response spectrum-base...
Fragility assessment of building structural systems in Mid-America
Ellingwood, Bruce R.; Çelik, Ozan Cem; Kinali, Kursat (2007-10-25)
Uncertainty in response of buildings and other civil infrastructure to earthquake ground motion is due to the inherent randomness in the ground motion itself-peak intensity, time-varying amplitude and strongmotion duration, and frequency content-and local design and construction practices. In the recently completed SAC project and ongoing research in the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center, the focus is on performance of buildings designed for regions of high seismicity. In contrast, curre...
