Özet

In 1958, Ankara Sports Center, the first long span cylindrical shell structure in Turkey, collapsed two years after its scaffoldings were removed. The underlying reasons for this collapse could not be elucidated, in spite of the juridical experts' report and the designer professor's statement of defense,. In this study, this collapse is investigated by making use of Bayulke's paper published in TMH, Turkish Engineering News [1].
