Long-term Dynamic Response of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul to Earthquakes and Atmospheric Conditions

E. ÇAKTI, E. DAR

Abstract


This study investigates the long-term dynamic response of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul to earthquakes and atmospheric conditions. It is aimed to display the variation in frequency-domain dynamic response parameters of Hagia Sophia due to changes in the atmospheric conditions and to identify behavioral patterns that can be associated with them. Moreover, the time and frequency domain response of the structure to earthquakes that took place since 2008 are studied to identify anything that stand out and can be interpreted as possible local or general structural problems.
