Seismic performance evaluation of eccentrically braced frames with long links using FEMA P695 methodology
Balıkçı, Elif Müge; Al-Janabi, Musab Aied Qissab; Topkaya, Cem (2022-05-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdShort links that primarily yield under shear are usually preferred in eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) due to their high rotation and energy dissipation capacities. Long links that yield under flexure ...
Lateral squeezing effects on cement-slag-bentonite slurry wall performance
Çokça, Erdal; Talefirouz, Davood (2022-05-01)
Cement-slag-bentonite slurry walls are self-hardening structures, and they are mainly used to retard contamination transport into the groundwater stream. Whilst permeability of a mixture is an initial criterion in slurry w...
An analytic network process model for risk quantification of mega construction projects
Erol, Hacı Hüseyin; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (2022-04-01)
Risk, complexity, and uncertainty are inherent components of megaprojects due to their unique features. However, existing project management practices lack a structured synthesis of these concepts, which leads to unrealist...
Global spatiotemporal consistency between meteorological and soil moisture drought indices
Afshar, Mahdı Hesamı ; Bulut, B.; Düzenli, Eren; Amjad, M.; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul (2022-04-01)
In this study, the consistency of a set of meteorological and soil moisture drought indices has been analyzed using the linear relationship between them. Commonly used Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) and Standardize...
Automated Identification of Vagueness in the FIDIC Silver Book Conditions of Contract
Candas, Ali Bedii; Tokdemir, Onur Behzat (2022-04-01)
Contract conditions are crucial as they outline an agreement between different parties. The semantic terms in contract conditions need to be precisely designated. Where these conditions contain vague meanings, the interpre...
A machine learning-based accuracy enhancement on EUMETSAT H-SAF H35 effective snow-covered area product
Kuter, Semih; Bolat, Kenan; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal (2022-04-01)
Snow is a major element of the cryosphere with significant impact on the Earth's water cycle and global energy budget. Acquiring consistent and long time series data on the spatial extent of snow cover doubtlessly plays a ...

This study presents a quantitative methodology for offshore wind power plant site selection in Northwest Turkey usingGeographical Information Systems(GIS) andAnalytical Hierarchy Process, which is one of the Multi-Criteria...
A review of inverse methods in seismic site characterization
Gosselin, Jeremy M.; Dosso, Stan E.; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Wathelet, Marc; Savvaidis, Alexandros; Cassidy, John F. (2022-04-01)
Seismic site characterization attempts to quantify seismic wave behavior at a specific location based on near-surface geophysical properties, for the purpose of mitigating damage caused by earthquakes. In recent years, tec...
A drift capacity prediction model for retrofitted reinforced concrete columns
ÖZCAN, OKAN; Binici, Barış (2022-03-01)
Seismic assessment of reinforced concrete (RC) buildings heavily relies on the deformation capacity predictions of members. Similarly, the prediction of the deformation capacity of retrofitted RC columns has the utmost imp...
