The protocol was signed by the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prof. Dr. Kudret Özersay and EMU Acting Rector Prof. Dr. Hasan Demirel. The protocol signed between EMU and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs aims for the EMU Engineering Faculty to take inventory and evaluate the earthquake resistance of all the buildings in the closed Maraş region, within the scope of the Closed Maras Inventory Studies under the responsibility of the Ministry.
A Report Card Will Be Created For Each Building
The buildings determined by a calibrated scoring system will be processed by EMU Faculty of Engineering, based on GIS evaluation as "demolished", "very bad", "bad", "medium", "good" and "very good". Factors for each building will be determined by determining the number of floors, damage due to time (level of corrosion), whether there are short columns, console working elements, soft floor, ground conditions, topographic condition, proximity to water mites, etc.
