The Effect of infill walls on the seismic performance of boundary columns in reinforced concrete frames
Fenerci, Aksel; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Reinforced concrete frames with unreinforced masonry infill walls constitute a significant portion of the building stock throughout the world. Infill walls in these buildings are generally considered as non-structural elements and neglected during design and assessment. On the other hand, observations after several earthquakes revealed that infill walls may have detrimental effects on the adjacent frame members. This observation brings out the requirement for further research on the effects of infill walls ...

Is it possible to create conditions in the anaerobic digesters to control nutrients without changing the performance of a reactor? This study investigates an answer for this question. To this purpose, anaerobic reactors are operated at high concentrations of Mg2+ ion to harvest the nutrient ions (NH4 (+) and PO4 (3-)) in the form of struvite, that is, magnesium ammonium phosphate. The effects of this modification on the anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge were investigated in terms of chemical oxygen deman...
The effect of structural variability and local site conditions on building fragility functions
Sisi, Aida Azari; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (2018-04-01)
In this study, the effect of local site conditions (site class and site amplifications) and structural variability are investigated on fragility functions of typical building structures. The study area is chosen as Eastern Turkey. The fragility functions are developed using site-specific uniform hazard spectrum (UHS). The site-specific UHS is obtained based on simulated ground motions. The implementation of ground motion simulation into seismic hazard assessment has the advantage of investigating detailed l...

In this study, the influence of defects that are occurred in manufacturing operations of filament wound composite overwrapped pressure vessels on burst pressure is investigated experimentally. Firstly, material characterization methods such as tensile testing and fiber volume fraction testing of carbon/epoxy composite specimens are completed. Following determining of different layer configurations for small scale composite pressure vessels, manufacturing and burst testing of vessels are accomplished. Ef...
