“Innovative Seismic Retrofitting Technologies in Re-use of Buildings” Seminar

Miyamoto Turkey President Yusuf Zahit Gündoğdu, has participated as a speaker to the seminar “Innovative Seismic Retrofitting Technologies in Re-use of Buildings” organized by ITU.

At his presentation “Advantages of Innovative Technologies on Structural Design”, Mr. Gündoğdu discussed how tuned mass dampers (TMD) are utilized in high-rise buildings and chimneys to mitigate wind-induced vibrations. Gündoğdu also explained how high-rise buildings could be strengthened against long period seismic waves, showing examples from Japan and Taiwan.
