The International Federation for Structural Concrete Turkey Branch
The Second International Workshop on Advanced Materials and Innovative Systems in Structural Engineering: Novel Researches, IWAMISSE 2019, is co-organised by The International Federation for Structural Concrete Turkey Branch, fib-Turkey, and Istanbul Technical University, ITU, on September 20, 2019 at ITU. The International Federation for Structural Concrete, fib, is a not-for-profit association formed by 42 national member groups and approximately 1000 corporate and individual members. The fib’s mission is to develop at an international level the study of scientific and practical matters capable of advancing the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete construction. Istanbul Technical University (ITU) was established in 1773 and is a state university which defined and continues to update methods of engineering and architecture in Turkey. It provides its students with innovative educational facilities while retaining traditional values, as well as using its strong international contacts to mould young, talented individuals who can compete not only within their country borders but also in the global arena. With its educational facilities, social life and strong institutional contacts, ITU has always been preferred by Turkey’s most distinguished students since its foundation and has achieved a justified respect. The workshop covers the topics of advanced materials and innovative systems in structural engineering with a focus on seismic practices as well as other issues related with steel fiber reinforced concrete, anchors/fasteners, precast structures, and recent advances on different types of structural systems such as reinforced concrete, steel, and reinforced masonry structures. This event which is organized for the second time will provide a platform for exploring the potential national and international cooperation schemes in terms of research and application on the areas covered within the scope of the workshop. A part of this workshop is devoted to papers presenting the initial outcomes of the TUBITAK-RCUK Project “Rapid Earthquake Risk Assessment and Post-Earthquake Disaster Management Framework for Substandard Buildings in Turkey” coordinated jointly by Istanbul Technical University and Sheffield University. This proceeding book contains twelve papers from five countries worldwide. We have no doubt that the up-to-date subjects covered during the workshop will be highly beneficial for the academicians and practitioners in the field. We would like to thank all authors for their contributions to the workshop as well as the members of the International Scientific Committee for their rigorous work for reviewing the papers. We also gratefully acknowledge the support of the sponsoring companies and we express our sincere thanks to organization committee for their tireless efforts in the overall organization of the workshop. Many thanks go as well to undergraduate and graduate students from ITU for their assistance during all stages of the workshop.
