Effects of vertical excitation on seismic performance of highway bridges and hold-down device requirements
Domaniç, Kemal Arman; Caner, Alp; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
Most bridge specifications ignore the contribution of vertical motion in earthquake analyses. However, vertical excitation can develop significant damage, especially at bearing locations as indeed was the case in the recent 1999 İzmit Earthquake. These observations, combined with recent developments in the same direction, supplied the motivation to investigate the effects of vertical component of strong ground motion on standard highway bridges in this study. Reliability checks of hold-down device requireme...
Effects of soil structure interaction and base isolated systems on seismics performance of foundation solis
Soyöz, Serdar; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
In this thesis primarily structural induced liquefaction potential was aimed to be analyzed. Also the effect of base isolation systems both on structural performance and liquefaction potential was studied. FLAC software was chosen for the analyses so that structure and soil could be modeled together. By these means the soil structure interaction effects were also examined. Four different structures and three different sites were analyzed under two different input motions. All the structures were also analyz...
Effects of Soil Bridge Interaction and Abutment Deck Continuity on the Live Load Distribution Factors in Integral Bridge Components
Erhan, Semih; Dicleli, Murat (2009-10-01)
In this study, the effects of soil bridge interaction and abutment deck continuity on the live load distribution in integral bridge components are studied. For this purpose, 2-D and 3-D structural models of typical integral and conventional bridges having various structural, geometric and geotechnical properties are built. The analyses of the models are then conducted under AASHTO live load. The analyses results revealed that soil-bridge interaction has significant effects on the live load distribution in a...

Effects of Fines Content and Plasticity on Index Properties and Hydraulic Conductivity of Coarse-Fine Mixtures
Ekici, Anıl; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan; Akgüner, Cem (2022-02-01)
Ten coarse-fine mixtures (CFM) (intermediate soils) having fines contents (FC) of 0%, 12%, 20%, 30%, 40%, and plasticity indices (PI) of 5% and 15% were prepared in the laboratory by mixing different fractions of gravel, sand, nonplastic silt, kaolin, and bentonite. Index properties, volume change during saturation, specific surface area (SSA), and saturated hydraulic conductivity of CFM were investigated. For compacted CFM, aFC=15%" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; display: inline; font-s...
