  1. 1. The urban planning of Istanbul and the provision of green resilient zones in an earthquake-hit metropolitan area -A case study of Istanbul & Avcılar

    Kandidat-uppsats, Örebro universitet/Institutionen för humaniora, utbildnings- och samhällsvetenskap

    Författare :Melissa Högberg Yilmaz; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Earthquake; Turkey; Istanbul; Avcilar; disaster risk reduction; urban disaster resilience; green areas; green infrastructure; regional planning; governance; planning hierarchy;

    Sammanfattning : This paper examines how green areas may be used as strategic recovery zones in the event of an earthquake and how these zones may strengthen the resilience for future quakes in Istanbul. The paper also refers to investigating why the planning system in Turkey can pose a threat for the provision of green areas. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Seismic retrofitting assessment of historical churches : The reconstruction of The Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio after the 2009 L’Aquila earthquake

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på grundnivå, Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Författare :Angelika Hedenström; [2020]
    Nyckelord :L’Aquila; earthquake; reconstruction; church; Basilica; Santa Maria di Collemaggio; Collemaggio; historical; heritage; preservation; seismic; retrofit; SHM;

    Sammanfattning : This study summarizes previous research to evaluate and verify the results of the extensive restoration of The Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio after the 2009 L’Aquila earthquake. In addition, it aims at identifying the vulnerability factors and challenges in preserving these buildings. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Shaken by the stress : Does in-uterus earthquake exposure cause long-term disadvantages for the fetus?

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Författare :Christoffer Karlsson Jamous; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Health; economics; fetal; origin; hypothesis; earthquakes; natural; disasters;

    Sammanfattning : This study investigates whether in-uterus earthquake exposure causes long-term labor, human capital, and health effects. The health shock is maternal stress, which generates excessive concentration levels of cortisol in the fetal environment, negatively impacting the development of the fetus. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A Simulation of Landslide-Generated Waves Using a Fully Implicit ISPH

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Författare :Kosei Nishida; [2020]
    Nyckelord :SPH; Landslide-generated waves; non-newtonian fluid; multiphase flow; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is used to study the mechanisms of landslide-generated waves. As the landslide dynamics and the evaluation of impact forces acting on water are most important, landslide is modelled as a highly viscous fluid. Incompressible SPH (ISPH) is used for fluid simulation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Investigation Of Source Parameters Of Earthquakes In Northern Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Geofysik

    Författare :María González-Caneda; [2019]
    Nyckelord :spectral analysis; earthquake source observations; ω-2 source model; moment magnitude; local magnitude; Northern Sweden seismicity.;

    Sammanfattning : By studying the frequency domain of seismic signals generated by earthquakes, the source parameters can be recovered, i.e., the seismic moment (M0) and the stress drop (Δσ). LÄS MER
