In this study, non-destructive tests and laboratory tests were carried out in order to determine the material properties in Iznik Yeşil Mosque, Iznik District, Bursa Province. For the purpose of determining the soil characteristics of the building, the soil survey studies conducted in the Iznik Yeşil Mosque area were investigated. The finite element model was formed by making a three dimensional model study of the structure. With the finite element model, static analysis, modal analysis and behavioral spectrum analysis were performed under vertical loads in order to collect data for the damaged areas of the structure.
