Behavioural assessment of clock towers subsequently added to historic structures

Burcin S. Seker

Abstract

Many historic structures across the world undergo alterations over time due to urban requirements and conditions, and their occupancy is either changed or new structures are built on the existing ones. These changes usually involve use of different materials or construction of a new structure above the original one. Each such change can reduce the building’s functionality, and negatively affect the stability and carrying capacity of the structure. Structural properties of clock towers built on a portal in the historic city of Amasya are analysed in the paper.

Keywords
