Dr. Hakan Yalçıner developed high strength concrete by using perlite which protect the building during earthquake
Dr. Hakan Yalciner is a structural and earthquake engineer at Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University and chairman of the Department of Civil Engineering. Dr. Yalciner received his Ph.D. from the University of the Eastern Mediterranean. He is a voting member of ACI Committees 546-00 (Concrete Repair) and 546-0E (Corrosion Studies). His research interests include the analysis of the performance of structures under extreme conditions and loads, such as corrosion, seismic events, and explosions. Dr. Yalciner developed different empirical models for the prediction of the structural behavior of corroded reinforced concrete elements.

Dr. Hakan Yalçıner continues to grab the attention of the construction industry with a new study.Dr. Hakan Yalçıner, who has greatly contributed to the development of the construction industry, continues to lead the construction industry with a new study. Professor Hakan Yalçıner received the results of a scientific research which he carried out with a company from Erzincan. Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University, conducting research with Erzincan Perlite Mine (ERPER), determined that the concrete in which the perlite was used had a strength of 30% compared to normal concrete. Professor Hakan Yalçıner said they will continue their scientific studies to design more earthquake resistant buildings and continue to work with businessmen, especially on large scale structures. Professor Hakan Yalçıner said that to demonstrate the utility of perlite, an experimental program should be created for concrete and perlite having the same compressive strength as concrete.
Perlite Concrete Offers Many Advantages Beyond Its Light Weight.
This product guide contains various mix designs for lightweight concrete, utilizing perlite as the primary aggregate, which may be used as stated or as a starting point for your own custom mixes.Perlite lightweight concrete is used in many different applications. These include lightweight tile mortar, statuary, decorative stone, gas-fireplace logs and floor fills.
Perlite concrete, while not usually suited for structural or load bearing uses, offers many advantages beyond its light weight. Perlite concrete provides better noise reduction and thermal insulating properties than conventional concrete. Generally speaking, the lighter the weight, the greater the insulative properties.
Accoriding to Dr. Hakan Yalçıner use of perlite mines increased the strength
Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University Civil Engineering Department Head Assoc. Dr. Hakan Yalçıner stated that the use of perlite mines increased the strength of concrete by 30 percent with the scientific experiments they carried out within the scope of public industry cooperation, and said, “We think that perlite mixed concrete will allow some innovations in the construction sector.”Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University, which carries out studies within the scope of public industry cooperation, conducted a scientific study on the use of perlite mine in concrete for the production of earthquake resistant buildings in the city where the risk of earthquake is high.
The university, conducting research with the Erzincan Perlite Mine ( ERPER ), found that the concrete in which the perlite mine was used showed 30 percent strength compared to normal concrete.
- The addition of sand to a perlite/cement mix will increase the density and compressive strength.
- The addition of medium-weight aggregate (pumice or expanded shale) will increase the density and compressive strength.
- The addition of fibers increases the tensile and flexural strength of perlite concrete,thereby reducing shrink cracking.
- The addition of air entraining agents reduce the density and compressive strength of the mix, and improves freeze/thaw performance.
- A range of aggregate size is desirable for increasing compressive strength. Super-plasticizers and water reducers can also be used to increase strength.
- Finer aggregate particles can be used to produce smoother finishes.
Its strength is increasing day by day
Yalçıner stated that Erzincan is located in the first degree earthquake zone and that they foresee that more earthquake resistant structures can be designed in the scientific studies they conducted on the use of perlite mine in concrete.
Stating that they will continue their scientific studies to design buildings more resistant to earthquakes, Yalçıner added that they will carry out studies especially on full-size structures together with businessmen.
ERPER General Manager Salih Ürün also stated that they have operated a perlite mine since 1969 and said, “With the experiments carried out at our university, we have seen that the perlite concrete provides much higher strength than the concrete made with other aggregates. In addition, the strength of the perlite concrete is increasing day by day, despite all these years. We think that our university will make an important contribution to the construction sector and our people with these scientific studies. ” he spoke.
