Course Objectives
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to distinguish wood construction techniques according to their types and properties,
  • Will be able to arrange wooden architectural building elements,
  • Will be able to describe the types and properties of wood to be used as building material,
  • Will be able to prepare a surveyor and an analytical survey in wooden structures.
  • Will be able to explain the wooden building damages, causes and solution methods,
  • Will be able to follow project and application phases in timber repair,
  • Will be able to identify conservation methods of wooden architectural heritage .
Course Description Within the scope of the course, the usage areas of wood will be explained in general; architectural construction techniques and details will be examined. Properties, types and degradation processes of wood will be transferred as a natural building material. Traditional wood making techniques (lapel, carcass, whitish) and its subspecies, change according to geographical regions and the details of the structure used will be covered. The changes and architectural features of traditional Istanbul houses will be described throughout history. Wooden architectural building elements (walls, floors, ceilings, stairs, roofs, etc.) and construction details will be categorized and reinforced with application assignments and drawings. Causes of corrosion and types of damages observed will be classified; "Damage detection" will be shown practically. The steps of a wooden building protection-restoration process (research, projecting, implementation: on-site protection - integration - reproduction) and intervention techniques will be evaluated separately and evaluated on samples. National and universal conservation principles, approaches and intervention techniques will be discussed in wood structures.
