Nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete frame structures
Çiftçi, Güçlü Koray; Polat, Mustafa Uğur; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Reinforced concrete frames display nonlinear behavior both due to its composite nature and the material properties of concrete itself. The yielding of the reinforcement, the non-uniform distribution of aggregates and the development of cracks under loading are the main reasons of nonlinearity. The stiffness of a frame element depends on the combination of the modulus of elasticity and the geometric properties of its section - area and the moment of inertia. In practice, the elastic modulus is assumed to be ...

Seismic performance assessment of confined masonry buildings
Çitiloğlu, Cihan; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
Although it is a known fact that confined masonry construction has many advantages over unreinforced masonry construction, its application has been very limited in Turkish construction practice. One of the reasons for this issue is that the seismic regulations in Turkey do not explicitly enforce or even encourage the use of confined masonry structural systems. Now, being on the verge of releasing a new version of the Turkish seismic code, it seems to be an appropriate time to adapt confined ma-sonry to the ...
Mathematical modeling of supercritical fluid extraction of biomaterials
Çetin, Halil İbrahim; Yener, Meryem Esra; Department of Food Engineering (2007)
Supercritical fluid extraction has been used to recover biomaterials from natural matrices. Mathematical modeling of the extraction is required for process design and scale up. Existing models in literature are correlative and dependent upon the experimental data. Construction of predictive models giving reliable results in the lack of experimental data is precious. The long term objective of this study was to construct a predictive mass transfer model, representing supercritical fluid extraction of biomate...
Experimental investigation of the seismic behaviour of panel buildings
Yüksel, S. Bahadır; Atımtay, Ergin; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
Shear-wall dominant multi-story reinforced concrete structures, constructed by using a special tunnel form technique are commonly built in countries facing a substantial seismic risk, such as Chile, Japan, Italy and Turkey. In 1999, two severe urban earthquakes struck Kocaeli and Düzce provinces in Turkey with magnitudes (Mw) 7.4 and 7.1, respectively. These catastrophes caused substantial structural damage, casualties and loss of lives. In the aftermath of these destructive earthquakes, neither demolished ...
