For the purpose of investigating two-dimensional (2D) performance of the designed cross-sections of rubble mound coastal defense structures planned to be constructed at different coastal regions of Turkey, several physical model experiments were carried out in the Ocean Engineering Research Center, Department of Civil Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. This study presents the comparisons of results of cumulative damage performance of five different crosssections of rubble mound coastal defense structures.

Analysis on the mechanical properties of historical brick masonry after machinery demolition
Ucer, Deniz; Ulybin, Aleksey; Zubkov, Sergey; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira (2018-02-10)
The demolition process of a historical brick masonry building in St. Petersburg, Russia was observed as a case study and research was conducted on the possibility of reusing the resultant debris, which was composed of high quality brick masonry, as new building material. Therefore, samples from the demolition debris, i.e. brick, mortar and wall pieces were collected and tested for their mechanical properties, according to Russian standards, when available, and according to International Standards for the re...
A Comparative Study on Structural Wall Design Approach of 2007 Turkish Seismic Code
Kurç, Özgür; Lulec, Andac; Ozcebe, Guney (2011-07-01)
The new version of the Turkish Seismic Code was released in 2007 and the capacity design approach for high ductility structural walls was introduced for the first time. The practicing engineers, however, mentioned various problems especially related with the shear design of structural walls. Because of this reason, an in-depth comparative study was conducted to examine the differences and similarities of the design approaches of Turkish Seismic Code, American Reinforced Concrete Code and various studies in ...
Evaluation of seismic resistance of traditional Ottoman timber frame houses
Aktaş, Yasemin Didem; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Türer, Ahmet; Department of Architecture (2011)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the seismic resistance of traditional Ottoman timber frame “hımış” structures, which form the major part of Turkey’s cultural heritage, from an engineering point of view. On the other hand, the seismic resistance of traditional Ottoman timber frame structures was not evaluated from an engineering perspective. For the aim of seismic resistance evaluation of traditional Ottoman timber frame houses, the TUBITAK (the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) p...
A Study on reusing Bouleuterion of Teos /
Çalışkan, Merve; Gökce, Fuat; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2015)
This study is constructed upon the question of “How should we approach to a building in an archaeological site for its compatible and sustainable utilization?” as a contemporary phenomenon which was and still has been considered for ancient places of performances and Bouleuterion in Teos Archaeological site - an architectural remain in excavation process, is assessed as the case of the study. For this reason, starting with a generic research on ‘reusing’ of historic buildings, the research on the utilizatio...
An equivalent linearization procedure for displacement-based seismic assessment of vulnerable RC buildings
Gunay, M. Selim; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2005-06-01)
Seismic assessment of vulnerable reinforced concrete buildings in Turkey is a challenging task. Considering both the size of the problem and the inadequacy of inelastic analysis methods in the seismic evaluation of large building stocks, it is evident that simple and convenient methods are required. A displacement-based seismic assessment procedure, employing equivalent linear analysis in combination with capacity principles, is developed herein. Briefly, the procedure consists of identifying the expected l...
