Material Characterization of Mudbrick and Neighbouring Plasters in Traditional Timber Framed Structures
Erdil, Meltem; Madani, Nigar; Alam, Burhan; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe (null; 2017-07-06)
The 19th century timber dwellings reflect the experience of the past on materials and construction technologies of the traditional timber frame structures in Anatolia. However, those houses suffer mostly from wrong repairs due to incompatible materials and inappropriate construction detailing. Wrong repairs introduce and/or accelerate many problems, such as moisture problems, salt decay, thermal and structural failures. Comprehensive studies are, therefore, needed to improve the knowledge for the planning o...

Material characterization of the late 12th-13th century Byzantine ceramics from Kuşadası Kadıkalesi/Anaia
Kırmızı, Burcu; Göktürk, Emine Hale; Günal Türkmenoğlu, Asuman; Department of Archaeometry (2012)
This study investigates the petrographical and chemical characteristics of a group of Zeuxippus Ware Related Ceramics dating to the late 12th-13th centuries from Kuşadası Kadıkalesi/Anaia. Kadıkalesi was a Byzantine fortress at the coast of Aegean Sea. It was also a significant commercial port and an episcopacy center during the 13th century. In this study, visual classifications of the ceramics were carried out based on their stylistic properties. Then, ceramic samples were investigated by several methods ...
Materials properties of contemporary solid bricks and their assessment in reference to the historic bricks
Atikoğlu, Merve Ceylin; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2019)
A comprehensive study was done to assess the performance properties of contemporary solid bricks and their compatibility was discussed in reference to the performance properties of historical bricks, which survived for hundreds of years. The handmade and factory solid bricks, which are used particularly in the repair works of historical buildings, are expected to be compatible with the performance properties of the historical bricks. In this regard, some types of contemporary solid burnt bricks, namely hand...
Material characterization of ancient mural paintings and related base materials: a case study of zeugma archaeological area
Akyol, Ali Akın; Demirci, Şahinde; Department of Archaeometry (2009)
In this study, two sample sets from Zeugma Archaeological Area had been examined. The sample Set I includes 7 sediment, 18 stone, 4 brick/roof tile, 9 mortar, 4 plaster samples and the sample Set II consists of 24 mural painting samples. Samples were examined to get their raw material characteristics, mineralogical and chemical compositions, and microstructural properties using various analytical techniques such as Optical Microscopy, XRD, FTIR, PED-XRF, SEM-EDX and Raman Spectroscopy. In addition, mikrocli...
