This paper contains technical information related to the Dinar project for the rehabilitation of moderately damaged reinforced concrete buildings after the 1 October 1995 Dinar earthquake. The structural appraisal of the damaged buildings, analytical studies leading to decisions regarding structural rehabilitation or demolition, the supervision on site of the rehabilitation and the overall coordination of the project was entrusted to the Middle East Technical University Earthquake Engineering Research Center [METU-EERC] by the Turkish Ministry of Public Works and Settlement. The project involved the rehabilitation of 35 moderately damaged RC buildings with a total floor plan area of 22 000 square metres.


Seismic performance of mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings in Izmir Bayrakli after the 2020 Samos earthquake
Demirel, Ismail Ozan; Yakut, Ahmet; Binici, Barış (2022-07-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdOn October 30th 2020, offshores of Samos Island, Greece was hit by a shallow earthquake of Mw = 6.9 moment magnitude. Located 76 km away from the earthquake's epicenter, the mid-rise reinforced concrete (RC) building stock of the densely populated Izmir Bayrakli district experienced the most severe structural damage. Although the horizontal peak ground acceleration recorded at the site (PGA = 0.11 g) was well below design values recommended by the past and the present Turkish seismic code...
Re-examination of damage distribution in Adapazari: Structural considerations
Yakut, Ahmet; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Yilmaz, MT (2005-06-01)
Adapazari was the scene of spectacular structural damage as well as widespread foundation displacement that occurred in the city during the devastating earthquake of August 17, 1999. The damage patterns observed in Adapazari were quite peculiar, so these are re-examined in an effort to answer the question of whether they are indicative of a consistent trend in terms of the building attributes and/or site conditions. For this purpose two databases comprising buildings surveyed in Adapazari after the earthqua...
Performance evaluation of a three-storey unreinforced masonry building during the 1992 Erzincan earthquake
Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (1997-03-01)
Seismic performance of a three-storey unreinforced masonry building which survived the 1992 Erzincan earthquake without damage is evaluated. Mechanical properties of the masonry walls have been determined experimentally by using identical brick and mortar used in construction. An accurate material model is developed for masonry and employed in a computer program for the non-linear dynamic analysis of masonry buildings. The analytical results based on measured material properties indicated that masonry build...
Structural rehabilitation and monitiring of a 28 story building

This paper reports the structural rehabilitation of a 28 story reinforced concrete building. Structural assessment of this building was initiated upon observing damage in one column after five years of service. As a result of this investigation it was concluded that the main cause of damage in the column was temperature induced deformations. A total of 36 circular (spiral) and 46 square (tied) columns were strengthened by steel jacketing. After the completion of rehabilitation, 122 sensors were placed in th...
Fragility-based assessment of typical mid-rise and low-rise RC buildings in Turkey
Erberik, Murat Altuğ (2008-05-01)
This paper focuses on the seismic fragility assessment of typical low-rise and mid-rise reinforced concrete (RC) buildings in Turkey by considering Duzce Damage database, which was compiled after the two devastating earthquakes in 1999 that affected the Marmara region. A set of fragility curves is developed by making use of the building characteristics in the database. The generated fragility curve set is referred as "reference" since it forms the basis of a parametric study. Then the influence of sampling ...
