Arifoğlu, Ali
Er, Erkan
This chapter is prepared to explain important aspects and factors to be considered in PIAPs-related projects, especially implemented in country-level. It is likely a guideline offering step-by-step and systematic approach for successfully implementing PIAP projects. The content of the guideline is divided into following sections: Potential PIAP Types, PIAP Services, Management Structure, Operational Structure, How to Create Public Demand, and Critical Success Factors.


Design for the Next: Integration of Path to Sustained Usage Model into Design Process
Karahanoğlu, Armağan; Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta (2017-10-18)
The aim of this chapter is to evaluate and further discuss the integration of the “Path to Sustained Usage” model into design process. To achieve this, this chapter explains the details and the outcomes of Engage! Workshop in which the model was tested with “backwards-designing” approach. The paper ends with further suggestions for application of the model into design process.
Assessment of improved nonlinear static procedures in FEMA-440
Akkar, Dede Sinan; Metin, Ash (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2007-09-01)
Nonlinear static procedures (NSPs) presented in the FEMA-440 document are evaluated for nondegrading three- to nine-story reinforced concrete moment-resisting frame systems. Evaluations are based on peak single-degree-of-freedom displacement, peak roof, and interstory drifts estimations. A total of 78 soil site records and 24 buildings with fundamental periods varying between 0.3 s-1.3 s are used in 2,832 linear and nonlinear response-history analyses to derive the descriptive statistics. The moment magnitu...
Optimal structural and geotechnical parameters for seismic performance improvement of integral bridges
Dicleli, Murat (null; 2018-08-03)
In this paper, practical techniques are introduced for detailed modelling of soil-pile and soil-abutment interaction effects for integral bridges (IBs). Furthermore, a parametric study is conducted to determine appropriate structural configurations and geotechnical properties to enhance the seismic performance of IBs. For this purpose, numerous nonlinear structural models of a two-span IB including dynamic soil-bridge interaction effects are built. Nonlinear time history analyses (NTHA) of the IB models ar...
Comparison of 2D versus 3D modeling approaches for the analysis of the concrete faced rock-fill Cokal Dam
Arıcı, Yalın (Wiley, 2013-12-01)
This paper's primary purpose is to compare the 2D and 3D analysis methodologies in investigating the performance of a concrete faced rock-fill dams under dynamic loading conditions. The state of stress on the face plate was obtained in both cases using a total strain based crack model to predict the spreading of cracks on the plate and the corresponding crack widths. Results of the 2D and 3D analyses agree well. Although significantly more demanding, 3D analyses have the advantage of predicting the followin...
Thread-based analysis of patterns in VMT
Çakır, Murat Perit; Zhou, Nan; Stahl, Gerry (Springer, 2009-01-01)
In this chapter we present a thread-based approach for analyzing synchronous collaborative math problem-solving activities. Threading information is shown to be an important resource for analyzing collaborative activities, especially for conducting sequential analysis of interaction among participants of a small group. We propose a computational model based on thread information, which allows us to idenepsy patterns of interaction and their sequential organization in computer-supported collaborative environ...
