Strengthening homes against earthquakes


Ph.D. candidate Ömer Türkmen, at the TU/e Department of the Built Environment, did extensive testing on a new way of strengthening masonry walls that is cost effective, minimally invasive, easy to install and a great improvement to the seismic resistance of existing buildings. With the resulting insights and practical experience, Türkmen and associates hope to make a significant contribution to the building strengthening efforts in Groningen, The Netherlands. Türkmen successfully defended his thesis on 17 November 2020.
