How does seismic activity affect the requirements for the construction of buildings in Turkey?

March 11, 2023

We have already told you about the seismic zoning map of Turkey, on which, depending on the degree of risk of earthquakes, certain regions of the country are marked with different colors.

Note that these data are also used to establish requirements for the construction of buildings. When designing buildings, its location must be taken into account, namely: in which zone of seismic activity it will be built. The greater the risk of earthquakes in a particular area, the stricter the requirements for the construction of buildings.

There are 4 seismic zones on the territory of Turkey and certain construction standards are applied for each of them.

Alanya is located in zone 3, where the risk of earthquakes is minimal. As a rule, only the echoes of earthquakes that occur in remote areas of the country are felt here. Nevertheless, there are rules and regulations of construction, according to which soil samples are taken before the development of the project. After analyzing the soil, engineers can start developing the project.

At all stages of construction, strict control is carried out over the implementation of all norms and requirements, and if the building is built in accordance with them, then the developer is issued Genel Iskan - permission for commissioning.

Turkish breakfast

Breakfast in Turkey is a whole ritual that reveals the culture and traditions of the country. It is called Serpme kahvaltı. Turkish breakfast can be described in two words variety and abundance. Several types of cheeses, vegetables, avocado, sausage, fried potatoes, fried eggs or menemen (omelet with tomatoes, pepper and spices) are served on the table. A separate place is occupied by strong tea, which is served in tulip glasses and fresh pastries: white bread, tortillas and, of course, simits (soft bagel with sesame seeds). Turks just love fresh, fragrant pastries. Without this, Turkish breakfast is not breakfast.
