Evaluation of Changing Building Characterisitcs in Turkey



Evaluation of Changing Building Characteristics in Turkey
Ay, Bekir Özer; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (2016-09-23)
Seismic risk combines earthquake induced hazard with structural response and determines loss that is equaled or exceeded over some time period. In this sense, it is of prime importance to utilize proper earthquake loss models that are able to consider local characteristics of building stock in a realistic way. The aim of this study is to compile changing characteristics of Turkish buildings that is believed to be necessary to develop representative models for loss estimations. Accordingly, a statistical sur...
Determination of Quality Level in Mass Housing Projects in Turkey
KAZAZ, AYNUR; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-02-01)
In Turkey, achievement of acceptable levels of quality in the construction sector has long been a problem. Great expenditures of time, money, and resources are wasted each year due to inefficient or nonexistent quality levels prevailing in the industry. The situation is even worse in the case of mass housing projects addressing to low and middle income groups. It is the purpose of this paper to identify the type of deviations resulting in rework in mass housing projects, since construction firms can only in...
Investigation of Wind Effects on Tall Buildings through Wind Tunnel Testing
Kurç, Özgür; Shojaee, S. M. Nima; Uzol, Oğuz (2012-10-01)
There has been significant increase in tall building construction in Turkey in the last decade. As the height of building increase, wind effects become more pronounced. Wind can interact with flexible buildings and can significantly magnify the wind loads and wind induced oscillations. Wind tunnel tests have been widely utilized for estimating the wind effects on buildings. In order to perform a successful test, however, flow conditions inside the tunnel must represent the actual conditions rather closely. ...
Cost-based analysis of quality in developing countries: a case study of building projects
KAZAZ, AYNUR; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; ULUBEYLİ, SERDAR (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
This paper examines construction quality costs in Turkey. First, background information is presented on quality costing, on the prevention, appraisal, and failure (PAF) approach, and on PAF components. Secondly, a model is presented for determining the optimum level of total quality cost. Finally, a case study in which the costs of quality in a mass-housing project were collected and evaluated is presented. For the case study, the data were obtained in two stages: (i) during the construction period and (ii)...
Analysis and design of FRP composites for seismic retrofit of infill walls in reinforced concrete frames
Binici, Barış; Ozcelik, Ramazan (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
There is an urgent need to retrofit deficient mid-rise reinforced concrete (RC) frame buildings in Turkey. For this purpose, an efficient FRP retrofit scheme has been developed previously, in which hollow clay brick infill walls can be utilized as lateral load resisting elements after retrofitting. The main premise of this practical retrofit scheme was to limit inter-storey deformations by FRP strengthened infill walls that are integrated to the boundary frame members by means of FRP anchors. Based on the a...
