An investigation of beach aesthetics for the Antalya to Izmir coastline of Turkey: A critique of current beech aesthetic analyses

Little work appears to have been done to compare beach evaluation and rating systems in an objective manner. Many beach award/evaluation systems endeavour to guide beach users with regard to beach quality, but those currently (2000) in use in Europe are based on a small number of measurable parameters and do not approach coverage of all possible aspects of the topic.


A conceptual performance measurement framework for construction industry
Işık, Zeynep; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
The performance assessment done by objective measures have now been replaced with subjective measures. Within the context of this research; interdependencies between a construction company’s “resources and capabilities”, “project management capabilities”, “strategic decisions”, “strength of relationships with other parties” and “external factors” with “project performance” and “company performance” were investigated from a resource based perspective which put forward intangible assets of the company. To ach...
An investigation on the application of standard contracts in the Turkish construction industry
Sertyeşilışık, Begüm; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2007)
The main objective of this thesis is to review the problems of stone facades according to the performance criteria determined with codes and standards and to propose solutions for proper application. In this process the codes, standards, other documents and the knowledge of the researcher all served to determine the inadequacies present in this field. The thesis also aims at clarifying the terminolgy confusion related to stone cladding and stone curtain wall.

Megaprojects are known as complex projects that involve high levels of uncertainty. This thesis aims to explore perceived complexity in mega construction projects by lived experiences of project managers. For this purpose, data were obtained through semi-structured interviews with 18 participants from 11 mega construction projects carried out by construction professionals. The data was processed with a grounded theory approach and analyzed using the QSR NVivo qualitative data analysis software. Findings sho...
An Investigation on the Use of Simulated Records in Derivation of Fragility Curves for RC Buildings in Duzce

Probabilistic assessment of seismic damage for an individual building or a building stock in terms of fragility curves generally requires utilization of ground motion records either seismologically consistent with the probable hazard for the area studied or chosen arbitrarily without considering the seismological characteristics, but covering a range of intensity levels. In both alternatives, the analyst should select several records to be able to perform the probabilistic studies accurately. This condition...
Use of nontraditional rating sources in performance appraisals
Sümer, Hayriye Canan; Bilgiç, Reyhan (2006-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a multi-source feedback system in a public sector organization and, more specifically, to examine performance appraisals provided by nontraditional rating sources (i.e., subordinates, peers, and sell) both psychometrically and on the basis of user-reactions. Intraclass correlations (i.e., inter-rater reliabilities) for subordinate evaluations were found to be relatively high (49). The pattern of correlations between ratings provided by different s...
