Abstract

Eastern Marmara Earthquake directly struck the densely populated cities in the lzmit Bay region. Most of marine structures were damaged, coastal areas were settled and slided seaward. Failure mechanisms are geotechnical and structural. The effects of the earthquake on marine structures and coastal areas will be investigated for two cases from geotechnical point of view.
