Revision of the Turkish development law no. 3194 governing urban development and land use planning

Gulkan, P
This paper is based on a report1 that stemmed from an investigation into improving Turkey’s legal framework for spatial planning and physical development. The principal motivation for the investigation has been the renewed awareness in the wake of the Erzincan earthquake of 13 March 1992 that there exist systemic defects in the way the built environment in Turkey is created. These deficiencies cause the building stock to have poor record against disasters, and bleed the national economy. It drains resources in an endless cycle of rebuilding after each occurrence of a disaster. In view of the great losses from the 17 August 1999 and 12 November 1999 earthquakes in northwestern Turkey, parliamentary adoption of the types of legal and structural instruments that have been developed during the course of the investigation has become more pressing.

Automatic Mapping of Linearwoody Vegetation Features in Agricultural Landscapes
AKSOY, SELİM; AKÇAY, HÜSEYİN GÖKHAN; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; Wassenaar, Tom (2008-07-11)
Development of automatic methods for agricultural mapping and monitoring using remotely sensed imagery has been an important research problem. We describe algorithms that exploit the spectral, textural and object shape information using hierarchical feature extraction and decision making steps for automatic mapping of linear strips of woody vegetation in very high-resolution imagery. First, combinations of multispectral values and multi-scale Gabor and entropy texture features are used for training pixel le...
Retrofit of Non-Ductile RC Frames with Precast Concrete (PC) Wall Panels
BARAN, MEHMET; Tankut, Tugrul (2011-12-01)
An economic, structurally effective and practically applicable strengthening method had been developed for reinforced concrete (RC) framed buildings. This study presents the test results on strengthening of deficient RC frames by using high strength precast concrete (PC) panels. The idea of the method is to convert the existing hollow brick infill wall into a load carrying system by bonding PC panels on to the plastered hollow brick infills. For this purpose, six (two reference and four strengthened) one-th...
Construction techniques of traditional Güdül houses
Yaren Celen, Nu; Gökce, Fuat; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2019)
The aim of this study is to prepare comprehensive and reliable documentation about construction techniques and materials of traditional houses in Güdül, district of Ankara, considering construction processes. For this purpose, studies about general features and history of Güdül as well as preservation activities in the settlement were collected and reviewed. By evaluating collected information from literature research and documentation of collected data on site surveys, architectural characteristics of Güdü...
Risk assessment of international construction projects using the analytic network process
Bu-Qammaz, Amani Suliman; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
This thesis offers a comprehensive risk assessment methodology that provides a decision support tool, directed for Turkish construction organizations, which can be utilized through the bidding decisions for international construction projects. Within this context the analytic network process technique is implemented to develop a risk assessment model, which is used to derive the relative priorities of the risk factors associated with international construction projects. The findings of the risk assessment m...
