Vulnerability of Turkish low-rise and mid-rise reinforced concrete frame structures
Ay, Bekir Özer; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
In this study, seismic safety of low-rise and mid-rise structures, which constitute approximately 75% of the total building stock in Turkey, is investigated by generating fragility curves. The scope is 3, 5, 7, and 9-story reinforced concrete moment resisting frame structures. The uncertainties in material variability and the specific characteristics of construction practice in Turkey are taken into account in the formation of structural simulations. Two-dimensional analytical models are constructed accordi...
Vulnerability of coastal areas to climate change: planning reconsidered at the case of Fethiye-Göcek special environmental protection area
Atasoy Özdemir, Yüksel; Eraydın, Ayda; Department of City and Regional Planning (2017)
Climate-induced natural hazards are threatened more human lives and natural assets than ever before which are especially concentrated in coastal areas. Lowlying coastal areas will be exposed to the unprecedented risk from sea-level rise, storm surges or other sea-ward hazards as these areas are complex socio-ecological systems and most vulnerable places to climate change because of their attractiveness of various human activities such as recreational facilities, residential needs, and economic activities. T...

Vulnerability of global primary food production against extreme climatic events in the context of food governance
Yeni, Filiz; Alpas, Hami; Güneş, Şule; Department of Earth System Science (2016)
According to latest reports of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, there is a trend demonstrating that the frequency and/or intensity of the extreme climatic events have been increasing, and duration of some extreme events has been changing substantially. Moreover, this trend is likely to continue in the current century, too. The ultimate goal of this study was to identify current vulnerabilities of global primary food production against extreme climatic events in terms of exposure and sensitivity, a...
Vulnerability Factors in OCD Symptoms: Cross-Cultural Comparisons between Turkish and Canadian Samples
Yorulmaz, Orcun; Gençöz, Tülin; Woody, Sheila (Wiley, 2010-03-01)
Recent findings have suggested some potential psychological vulnerability factors for development of obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms, including cognitive factors of appraisal and thought control, religiosity, self-esteem and personality characteristics such as neuroticism. Studies demonstrating these associations usually come from Western cultures, but there may be cultural differences relevant to these vulnerability factors and OC symptoms. The present study examined the relationship between putative vu...
