Re-evaluation of the petrological features of the Ekecikdağ Plagiogranites in Central Anatolia/Turkey



Re-reading of the conservation activities in the historic city of Gaziantep in the 2000s through conservation council decisions
Teker, İlker; Özgönül, Nimet; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2013)
The changes in legislative, financial and administrative structure of conservation, which are the fundamentals of this field, put into action in 2004 and started a new era within the conservation history of Turkey. These changes introduced new opportunities for the conservation field and increased the number of conservation implementations, which were insufficient in accordance to reach cultural heritage of the country, enormously in this era. Gaziantep has been one of the historic cities in Turkey, where t...
Re-characterization of architectural style of reinforced concrete building facades by exterior seismic strengthening
Toker, Saadet; Ünay, Ali İhsan (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
Recent earthquakes in Turkey have shown the poor seismic performance of reinforced concrete residential buildings. This led to widespread utilization of several strengthening methods, each of which is convenient in different aspects. However, what is required to apply any of these methods is to evacuate the building in question, since the interruptions are mostly within the building and to the structural members. In this article, a method is introduced for external strengthening of typical reinforced concre...
Re-examination of damage distribution in Adapazari: Geotechnical considerations
Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yakut, Ahmet (Elsevier BV, 2005-06-01)
The role of ground conditions in damage distribution patterns of buildings in the city of Adapazari during the 17 August 1999 Izmit (Kocaeli) earthquake (M-w 7.4) is investigated. Damage was concentrated in the central districts of the city over the alluvial basin where four to seven-story reinforced concrete buildings were most adversely affected. Two distinct and mutually exclusive modes of building damage were observed on the alluvium: structural system failures due to strong ground shaking, and foundati...
Re-construction of ghost buildings: taksim artillery barracks /
Kırbaş, Berrak; Zelef, Mustafa Haluk; Department of Architecture (2014)
This thesis is a critical assessment of the re-construction project of Taksim Artillery Barracks in the place of Taksim Gezi Park. In the meantime, it is an attempt to discuss the tendency of re-construction in architecture in relation to the “ghosts” in architectural discourse. In the scope of the thesis, the stimulation behind the resurrections of the “ghost” of the barracks and other “ghost buildings” are examined within three themes; “ghosts” in architectural discourse, “ghost building” as the haunted r...
Re-examination of damage distribution in Adapazari: Structural considerations
Yakut, Ahmet; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT (2005-06-01)
Adapazari was the scene of spectacular structural damage as well as widespread foundation displacement that occurred in the city during the devastating earthquake of August 17, 1999. The damage patterns observed in Adapazari were quite peculiar, so these are re-examined in an effort to answer the question of whether they are indicative of a consistent trend in terms of the building attributes and/or site conditions. For this purpose two databases comprising buildings surveyed in Adapazari after the earthqua...
