Tarihi Türk hamamlarının akustik nitelikleri: özgün hali ve bugünkü durumu

Comprehensive studies are needed to discover the original acoustical features of historical Turkish baths and to keep their functioning together with their inherent characteristics for long periods of time. The main concern of the study wasthe discovery of original acoustical features the Kadı Hamamı(Diyarbakır) and Şengül Hamamı (Ankara), two 15thcentury historical baths belonging to the Ottoman period, and acoustical failures occurred in time due to the recent improper repairs. The historical baths had originally well-designed acoustical features. This success was attributed to the conscious use of historical lime plastershaving high sound absorption characteristics.The original acoustical features of these structures have been destroyed due to thewrong repairs using cement-based plasters,which had considerably-lower sound absorption coefficientsthan the historic ones.

The aim of the study was to investigate Seljuk Plasters used in some of their royal administrative or residential buildings from a viewpoint of their raw materials and technological characteristics. Some Byzantine Plasters of the same period were also investigated to make comparison. Plasters from some historic structures in the archaeological sites namely; Alanya Castle, Kubadabad Palaces, Syedra Archaeological Site, Aspendos Amphitheatre, Selinus Archaeological Site-Sekerhane Kösk and Hasbahçe were examin...
An investigation on the water supply and drainage systems of historical turkish baths
Dişli, Gülşen; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Architecture (2008)
Historical Turkish baths still keeping their functional systems represent their original architectural and building technologies. Studies on the functional systems of historical baths are therefore needed to discover such technologies and to maintain them in working order. This study was conducted on a 15th century historical Turkish bath, Şengül Hamamı, in Ankara for assessment of its water supply and drainage systems. These systems comprised of hot and cold-water supply, wastewater and rainwater drainage,...
A Study on rural space, land and socio-agrarian structure in ottoman edirne (1613-1670)

This study analyzes the Edirne region in the late seventeenth century, during which the city of Edirne witnessed a fascinating spatial and demographic enlargement due to the very fact that the Ottoman Sultans preferred to physically reside there. The demographic rise – and hence spatial dispersion of the city necessitated certain requirements that are imperative for us to better comprehend the city’s position in the seventeenth century. The increasing necessities of the city not only brought about the inter...
