Disasters caused by natural hazards or socio-political crises pose widespread damage on built environment resulted with loss of housing. To meet accommodation needs of disaster victims, temporary accommodation units are a common solution not only to bridge the gap until permanent housing are ready to use but also to provide physical and psychological rehabilitation. As post-disaster accommodation units are absolutely diversified from the housing production in usual conditions with respect to necessity of prompt readiness and instant as well as extensive response, the management of provision, design and construction of them require rapid and organizational evaluation. In an ideal disaster management process, it is critical to define decision criteria of temporary accommodation units in ‘preparedness’ period to achieve a rational decision-making process in limited time of ‘reconstruction’ and ‘recovery’ phase. In literature, there are several studies on decision criteria of temporary accommodation units, yet they generally concentrate on a particular feature. The aim of this study is to generate an extensive and holistic decision criteria matrix to guide decision makers in evaluation of post-disaster temporary accommodation units.

Evaluation of temporary housing units with multi-criteria decision making methods
Akdede, Nil; Ay, Bekir Özer; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2018)
Disasters caused by natural hazards or socio-political crises pose widespread damage or mass migration on built environment resulted with loss of housing. To meet accommodation needs of disaster victims, post disaster temporary accommodation units, including temporary sheltering and temporary housing units, are common solutions not only to bridge the gap until permanent housing are ready to use but also to provide physical and psychological rehabilitation. As post-disaster accommodation units are absolutely...
An Optimization-Based Decision-Support Tool for Post-Disaster Debris Operations
Lorca, Alvaro; Çelik, Melih; Ergun, Ozlem; Keskinocak, Pinar (2017-06-01)
Debris generated by disasters can hinder relief efforts and result in devastating economic, environmental, and health problems. In this study, we present a decision-support tool employing analytical models to assist disaster and waste management officials with decisions regarding collection, transportation, reduction, recycling, and disposal of debris. The tool enables optimizing and balancing the financial and environmental costs, duration of the collection and disposal operations, landfill usage, and the ...
Pre-Positioning Disaster Response Facilities and Relief Items
RENKLİ, Cigdem; Duran, Serhan (2015-07-04)
Large-scale disasters cause enormous damage to people living in the affected areas. Providing relief quickly to the affected is a critical issue in recovering the effects of a disaster. Pre-disaster planning has an important role on reducing the arrival time of relief items to the affected areas and efficiently allocating them. In this study, a mixed integer programming model is proposed in order to pre-position warehouses throughout a potential affected area and determine the amount of relief items to be h...
An Assessment of energy efficient and climate sensitive urban design principles: design proposals for residential city blocks in temperate arid and hot humid regions
Karagöz, Damla; Balaban, Osman; Barlas, Mehmet Adnan; Department of City and Regional Planning (2016)
Environmental problems caused by urbanization and industrialization processes have almost irreversibly damaged the ecological balance in the natural environment. In the 21st century, when half of the worlds population has become urban, the links between urbanization and environmental problems gained more attention and the search for measures and solutions to address the negative impacts of urban development on natural environment increased. Global warming and climate change, the major challenges that contem...
An experimental study on the behavior of box-shaped culverts buried in sand under dynamic excitations
Ülgen, Deniz; Özkan, M. Yener; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
Seismic safety of underground structures (culvert, subway, natural gas and water sewage systems) plays a major role in sustainable public safety and urban development. Very few experimental data are currently available and there is not generally accepted procedure to estimate the dynamic pressures acting on underground structures. This study aims to enhance the state of prevalent information necessary in understanding the dynamic behavior of box culverts and the stresses acting under dynamic excitations thr...
