Oxidation behavior of NiTi alloy has been investigated under isothermal temperature by thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy equipped with a dispersive X-ray (SEM-EDX) spectroscope systems. The Ni-45.16% Ti (composition in atomic percent) was exposed to air atmosphere, i.e., between 400˚C and 800˚C, for 1h. It was found that Ni-rich NiTi alloy exhibits different oxidation behaviour at temperatures above 400˚C in air atmosphere. The activation energy (estimated from Arrhenius plots) of oxidation reaction for NiTi alloy was determined to be 111,64 kj/mol. According to DSC measurements, the transformation temperature of alloy (Ms, Mf, As and Af) was increased and also R phase disappeared above 500˚C. X-ray diffraction patterns of the heat-treated specimens contain oxide peaks, mainly belonging to TiO2. X-ray analyses demonstrate that the amount of the TiO2 and Ni3Ti peaks expands with isothermal temperature while that of NiTi(B2), NiTi(B19) and Ni4Ti3 peaks decreases. In addition to the formal oxides were determined by means of SEM-EDX measurements and obtain oxides are TiO and TiO2

There are different methods used for strengthening in the literature. In this study, the method of strengthening with a steel wire mesh of the infill wall is examined. For this reason, four reinforced concrete frames are constructed with the same structural characteristics. While one of these samples is prepared without an infilled wall (simple), the others are prepared as with an infilled wall. The two samples with infill wall are strengthened with steel wire mesh. The spacing and workmanship of anchors are changed in the strengthened samples. The obtained results showed that energy assumption and lateral load capacities increased in strengthened samples. The lateral load capacities of the sample with infilled wall and the strengthened samples with poor and good workmanship of anchors have increased by 120%, 160%, and 180% compared to simple sample, respectively. It has been observed that the strengthening face split from the infill wall in the sample in which the workmanship of anchor is poor. Because the strengthening was applied in the single side, the infill wall on the other side cracked in an X shape. So, the strengthening must be applied in both sides rather than the single side of the infill wall.

Under the light of unpleasant experience we got through earthquakes, we observe that most of the structure reserves in our country are not durable to earthquake. Because of the main reasons such as having too many building stocks and insufficiency of time and staff, in order to minimize earthquake damages, the requisite of applying rapid assessment methods for existing structures has emerged. Determining risk priorities of the structures to be evaluated gradually will cause a decrease in the number of analyzed structures in every stage. Another aim of these rapid methods is to minimize the number of structures to be analyzed in detail. In the first stage evaluation, detailed information is not necessary. In this evaluation stage, the evaluation can be carried out through collecting the information affecting earthquake behavior from outside and partly inside the structure. There are various methods about the first stage assessment of the structures in literature. Via a regulation made by Ministry of Environment and Urbanization in 2013, these methods took part in the regulations. In this study, the soil classes, the type of structural system and the visual quality of structure parameters have been chosen as variants through using the first stage assessment method mentioned in the rules related to obtain the risky structures came into force in 2013 and structure performance scores have been calculated according to these variants. These scores have been compared and the effects of the chosen variants on structure performance scores have been commented.
