Paper Title:
Post-Earthquake Damage Assessment Process and Problems in Turkey – A Case Study in Van Province
  Abstract

This paper presents the current post-earthquake damage assessment procedure in Turkey, and is based on the authors experience in the province of Van after the earthquakes in late 2011. The damage assessments were conducted mainly by the state with the collaboration of the Chamber of Architects in Turkey. It is aimed at explaining how the damage surveys are conducted and what problems occurred during and after the completion of the assessments. The differences and similarities between other countries post-earthquake damage assessment practices are also examined by comparing them and giving some examples.
