Cyclic response of saturated sands has become one of the most popular topics in geotechnical earthquake engineering due to the consequent damages of earthquakes. Related to this topic, detailed performance of offshore structures founded on saturated sands under the effect of cyclic loads carries vital economic importance. It is well-known that besides seismic loading; storm, wind and/or submarine slope failures have direct effect on the strength and deformation behavior of soils through induced sea-level va...

This paper presents a study of liquefaction-induced ground deformations at the Hotel Sapanca site during the 1999 Kocaeli (Izmit)-T Turkey earthquake. The paper discusses: (1) observed ground deformations and displacements after the earthquake, (2) the results of field investigations by means of borings and in situ index tests including standard penetration tests (SPT), static cone penetration tests (CPT) and piezocone (CPTU) tests, (3) analyses of observed ground settlements and lateral deformations by a s...
Alkali-silica rectivity and activation of ground perlite-containing cementitious mixtures
Ünsal Sağlık, Aslı; Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
Perlite is a volcanic mineral. The latest investigations on ground perlite showed that it is suitable for pozzolanic usage. Thus, it is of vital importance especially for countries rich in perlite such as Turkey. The aim of this study is to investigate the advantages and problems associated with using perlite in concrete and to identify accurate methods and amounts of use for producing durable cementitious mixtures. Within the scope of this study, the alkali-silica reactivity of perlite containing cementiti...
