Article
Full-text available
The destructive effects of earthquakes negatively affect many people's lives and cause a large number of lives and property losses. One of the most crucial factors that increase the destructive effects and structural damages of earthquakes is the deformations in the soil layers during strong ground motion. Especially liquefaction due to sudden incr...

Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA), the main component of global construction and demolition (C&D) waste, is mostly stockpiled, creating environmental impacts and consuming valuable land space. Utilizing RCA in geotechnical applications, particularly in highways would result in consumption of large volumes and decrease of the stockpiled amounts. In...
Article
The use of the recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) obtained from construction and demolition wastes not only reduces the demand for natural aggregate, which ultimately leads to economical and eco-friendly designs, but also improves the long-term performance of a conventional flexible pavement. This study aims to investigate the effects of using 100...
Article
Freeze and thaw processes are mostly observed in cold regions and impact the short- and long-term performances of road pavements. Thus, freeze and thaw processes should be considered when designing and constructing roads due to the potential change it will cause to the structure, arrangement and properties of the materials used in road construction...

Stiffness properties affecting the road performance of recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) should be determined before using them in the road subbase and base course. On the other hand, the freeze and thaw (F-T) negatively affects the long-term performance of the road. In this study, the F-T effect on the stiffness properties of RCA obtained from th...

The severity and spatial distribution of ground motion are affected by geological and geotechnical conditions as well as earthquake source properties. The characteristics of ground motion at a particular site depend on many factors such as tectonics of the region, rupture mechanism, source distance, geological formations and local soil conditions a...

The use of limited resources in suitable applications has gained great importance because of increasing investment in the construction industry every year in the world and Turkey. Besides reinforcement; concrete, plaster, brick, and other materials are mostly used in the construction practice, among them concrete, which has very little loss in stre...
