An investigation on plan geometries of RC buildings: With or without projections in plan
(Techno Press, 2012-06)
The interaction of plan geometry and structural configuration, a determinative factor in the earthquake behavior of buildings, has become a serious issue in the building industry in Turkey due to the poor seismic performance ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of forced convection in a double skin façade
Flow and heat transfer of the air cavity between two glass façades designed in the box window type of double skin façade (DSF) was evaluated in a test room which was set up for measurements in the laboratory environment ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of natural convection in a double skin facade
In this study, airflow and heat transfer in a rectangular cavity that simulates a double skin facade and includes natural convection were examined numerically and experimentally. This cavity separates the exterior space ...
An investigation on daylighting performance in educational institutions
(Emerald Group Publishing, 2013-05)
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to investigate natural illumination properties of one of the classrooms in the School of Architecture at Izmir Institute of Technology, located in Turkey, which is the northern ...
Experimental investigation of the pressure loss through a double skin facade by using perforated plates
The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of perforated elements on pressure drop in a double skin facade cavity. This cavity separates the exterior and interior space as thermally controllable. The temperatures of ...
The effect of architectural form on the earthquake behavior of symmetric RC frame systems
(Techno Press, 2014-02)
In this study, structural irregularities in plan, which has a considerable effect on earthquake behavior of buildings, have been investigated in detail based on Turkish Earthquake Code 2007. The study consists of six main ...
