Derivation of analytical fragility curves using SDOF models of masonry structures in Erzincan (Turkey)

2020-02-01
Seismic loss estimation studies require fragility curves which are usually derived using ground motion datasets. Ground motion records can be either in the form of recorded or simulated time histories compatible with regional seismicity. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the use of alternative ground motion datasets (simulated and real) on the fragility curves. Simulated dataset is prepared considering regional seismicity parameters corresponding to Erzincan using the stochastic finite-fault technique. In addition, regionally compatible records are chosen from the NGA-West2 ground motion database to form the real dataset. The paper additionally studies the effects of hazard variability and two different fragility curve derivation approaches on the generated fragility curves. As the final step for verification purposes, damage states estimated for the fragility curves derived using alternative approaches are compared with the observed damage levels from the 1992 Erzincan (Turkey) earthquake (Mw=6.6). In order to accomplish all these steps, a set of representative masonry buildings from Erzincan region are analyzed using simplified structural models. The results reveal that regionally simulated ground motions can be used alternatively in fragility analyses and damage estimation studies.

A study on fragility analyses of masonry buildings in Erzincan (Turkey) utilizing simulated and real ground motion records

Ground motion records are generally required to develop fragility curves which are utilized in seismic loss estimation studies for earthquake prone zones. These records could be 'real', i.e. recorded acceleration time series or 'simulated' records consistent with the regional seismicity and produced using alternative simulation techniques. This study mainly concentrates on development of fragility curves for masonry buildings located in Erzincan (eastern Turkey) using 'simulated' ground motion records and e...
An Investigation on the Use of Simulated Records in Derivation of Fragility Curves for RC Buildings in Duzce

Probabilistic assessment of seismic damage for an individual building or a building stock in terms of fragility curves generally requires utilization of ground motion records either seismologically consistent with the probable hazard for the area studied or chosen arbitrarily without considering the seismological characteristics, but covering a range of intensity levels. In both alternatives, the analyst should select several records to be able to perform the probabilistic studies accurately. This condition...
Evaluation of a recently proposed record selection and scaling procedure for low-rise to mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings and its use for probabilistic risk assessment studies
Ay, Bekir Özer (2014-05-01)
This paper evaluates a recent record selection and scaling procedure of the authors that can determine the probabilistic structural response of buildings behaving either in the elastic or post-elastic range. This feature marks a significant strength on the procedure as the probabilistic structural response distribution conveys important information on probability-based damage assessment. The paper presents case studies that show the utilization of the proposed record selection and scaling procedure as a too...
Design of V-shaped array geometry
Filik, Tansu; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Yasar, T. Kaya (2007-06-13)
in this study, a new design method is proposed for V-shaped planar array geometry for two-dimensional azimuth and elevation angle estimation. The proposed method is similar to filter design in signal processing. This method determines the V-shaped array geometry which gives the best 2-D angle estimation performances for the specified design parameters. The best geometry is determined by using Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) and performance comparison is done with other planar array geometries.
Evaluation and selection of ground motion intensity measures for nonlinear seismic demand and fragility analysis of MDOF systems
Kadaş, Koray; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-5-21)
In performance-based seismic design methodology, intensity measures are thought to be key parameters of ground motion records that relate the seismic hazard levels with the structural response or damage. Therefore, it is important to identify efficient intensity measures that are capable of reducing the variability in seismic demand predictions. There exist several simple-to-advanced scalar and vector ground motion intensity measures; however, the literature is limited in the number of comparative studies i...
