Impact of national culture on knowledge sharing in international construction projects
KIVRAK, SERKAN; ARSLAN, GÖKHAN; TUNCAN, MUSTAFA; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (Canadian Science Publishing, 2014-07-01)
International construction projects generally involve participants from different cultural backgrounds. In this type of projects, national culture can significantly influence knowledge sharing between individuals. This research contributes to the literature by providing a deeper understanding of cultural issues that influence knowledge sharing in international construction projects. The research was carried out in three international construction joint ventures located in Qatar, Libya, and Bulgaria. A mixed...
Impact of capacity level on reinsurance and cat bond markets
Kerman, T. Toygar; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Yazıcı, Selamet; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2012)
Reinsurance is one of the most important tools to be used by insurance companies, for managing risks. This is an effective way; however, there are situations where reinsurance is insufficient, such as the occurrence of a natural hazard. When a natural hazard occurs, many insured experience loss at the same time, which drains the reinsurance market capacity. If future market capacity could be forecasted, then it would be easier for companies to decide when to include cat bonds or any other additional securit...
Impact of design-related workshops as extracurricular activities on industrial design students' educational and professional development
Yanpar Uzun, Zeliha Didem; Kaygan, Pınar (null; 2018-03-07)
The last couple of years have witnessed an increase in the number of workshops related to design, which are organized as extracurricular activities for students. Despite the rising interest and participation of industrial design students in these workshops, we do not encounter any systematic research focusing on this subject. Addressing this gap, this study captures the overall picture of industrial design students’ participation in extracurricular design workshops. This study is particularly interested in ...
Impact of Joint Modeling Approach on Performance Estimates of Older-Type RC Buildings
BAYHAN, BEYHAN; ÖZDEMİR, GÖKHAN; Gulkan, Polat (SAGE Publications, 2017-08-01)
The behavior of beam-column connections has usually been ignored in the modeling process due to its complexity and relatively recent awareness of its possible impact on response. This study presents the features of modeling unrein-forced beam-column joints in estimating seismic demands. A representative RC frame is subjected to strong ground motions. Through nonlinear dynamic analyses, base shear, roof displacement, inter-story drift and joint rotation are noted. The dynamic analyses are performed comparati...
Impact of Pervasive Computing on Service Design in Hospitality
Gökalp, Ebru; Eren, Pekin Erhan (2013-06-01)
The economies of developed countries have significantly transformed from manufacturing based to service based, where the hospitality industry plays an important role. Within this context, new service design and service innovation are vital for maintaining competitive advantage. Recently, pervasive computing has emerged as a key enabler in various industries in support of service innovation by facilitating the design of new services. This study aims to investigate the benefits provided by pervasive computing...
