Evaluation of steel building design methodologies: TS648,Eurocode 3 and LRFD
Zervent, Altan; Yılmaz, Çetin; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
The aim of this study is designing steel structures with the same geometry, material and soil conditions but in the different countries, and comparing these designs in terms of material savings. According to three steel building codes, namely TS 648, LRFD, Eurocode 3, same structures with various stories (2, 4, 6, 8, and 10) are analyzed and designed. To calculate the design loads, Turkish Earthquake Code 2007 and Turkish Standard 498 (Design Load for Buildings) are utilized when TS 648 is applied. When LRF...

Displacement-based seismic rehabilitation of non-ductile RC frames with added shear walls
Karageyik, Can; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Non-ductile reinforced concrete frame buildings constitute an important part of the vulnerable buildings in seismic regions of the world. Collapse of non-ductile multi story concrete buildings during strong earthquakes in the past resulted in severe casualties and economic losses. Their rehabilitation through retrofitting is a critical issue in reducing seismic risks worldwide. A displacement-based retrofitting approach is presented in this study for seismic retrofitting of medium height non-ductile concret...
Approximate analysis and condition assesment of reinforced concrete t-beam bridges using artificial neural networks
Dumlupınar, Taha; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
In recent years, artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been employed for estimation and prediction purposes in many areas of civil/structural engineering. In this thesis, multilayered feedforward backpropagation algorithm is used for the approximate analysis and calibration of RC T-beam bridges and modeling of bridge ratings of these bridges. Currently bridges are analyzed using a standard FEM program. However, when a large population of bridges is concerned, such as the one considered in this project (Pen...
Analytical examination of performance limits for shear critical reinforced concrete columns
Ergüner, Kamil; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
Most of the older reinforced concrete (RC) buildings have columns that are deficient when the current code requirements are considered. Therefore, performance of the columns determines the performance of the structure under the effects of earthquake induced lateral loads. It is recognized that no provision is proposed in TEC2007 to estimate the failure type called flexure-shear. Behavior of columns having probability of failing in flexure-shear failure mode is mostly underestimated by TEC2007 procedures. In...
