Structural Assessment of Buildings
Çanakkale / Turkey
Structural Safety Assessment of Various School Buildings in Çanakkale and Strengthening Projects
The surveys of 2 school buildings located in the city center of Çanakkale were taken and the necessary field studies (core extraction, x-ray imaging, ground investigation, etc.) were carried out to assess the structural vulnerability of the building. Using the information obtained, existing structures were modeled and earthquake performance analyzes were conducted. Based on the outcome, retrofitting and strengthening measures were designed.
Liquefaction risk was determined for the foundation of Atatürk Primary School in the city center. Together with the structural retrofitting, Jet-grout application was designed to be implemented within the existing structure for mitigating the liquefaction risk.
