The parameters appearing in the mixture and effective modulus models proposed in Part 1 are determined through optimization by matching theoretical and experimental responses. The optimization analysis is performed in frequency space. The response quantities chosen to be matched are the complex frequency response functions (experimental and theoretical) relating the Fourier transforms of top and base accelerations of the wall. Computations in optimization analysis are carried out by introducing an object (error) function and minimizing it using the Gauss‐Newton method. The results show that the mixture model is capable of predicting accurately the dynamic response of masonry walls up to a frequency which is well above the second modal frequency, whereas the effective modulus model describes the wall behaviour only up to the first modal frequency. Furthermore, it is shown that the mixture model is still valid when micro cracks, which may exist between the mortar and brick constituents, are present.

 A LINEAR MATHEMATICAL-MODEL FOR THE SEISMIC INPLANE BEHAVIOR OF BRICK MASONRY WALLS .1. THEORETICAL CONSIDERATIONS Mengi, Yalçın; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; McNiven, Hugh (Wiley, 1984-01-01) In this study two mathematical models are presented for the linear dynamic behaviour of masonry walls. The study is completed in three stages: experimental observations, selection of a mathematical model and the determination of model parameters through optimization analysis. In the present paper (Part 1) the theoretical analysis used in the development of the mathematical models is presented. Part 2 is devoted to the optimization analysis. Evaluation of the experimental data, which is described in detail ...
 Evaluation of displacement coefficient method for seismically retrofitted buildings with various ductility capacities Dicleli, Murat (Wiley, 2014-07-25) This research study is aimed at evaluating the accuracy of the displacement coefficient method (DCM) of FEMA 440 and associated nonlinear static procedure (NLSP) for actual buildings with soft story mechanism and various ductility capacities. The DCM and associated NLSP are evaluated using two existing seismically vulnerable buildings with soft story mechanism. The buildings are first retrofitted using a ductile steel-brace-link system to represent those with good ductility capacity and then retrofitted wit...
 An improvement to linear-elastic procedures for seismic performance assessment Gunay, Mehmet Selim; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (Wiley, 2010-07-10) An improved linear-elastic analysis procedure is developed in this paper as a simple approximate method for displacement-based seismic assessment of the existing buildings. The procedure is mainly based on reducing the stiffness of structural members that are expected to respond in the inelastic range in a single global iteration step. Modal spectral displacement demands are determined from the equal displacement rule. Response predictions obtained from the proposed procedure are evaluated comparatively by ...
 Comparison of 2D versus 3D modeling approaches for the analysis of the concrete faced rock-fill Cokal Dam Arıcı, Yalın (Wiley, 2013-12-01) This paper's primary purpose is to compare the 2D and 3D analysis methodologies in investigating the performance of a concrete faced rock-fill dams under dynamic loading conditions. The state of stress on the face plate was obtained in both cases using a total strain based crack model to predict the spreading of cracks on the plate and the corresponding crack widths. Results of the 2D and 3D analyses agree well. Although significantly more demanding, 3D analyses have the advantage of predicting the followin...
 Generalized force vectors for multi-mode pushover analysis of torsionally coupled systems Kaatsız, Kaan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (Wiley, 2014-10-25) A generalized multi-mode pushover analysis procedure was developed for estimating the maximum inelastic seismic response of symmetrical plan structures under earthquake ground excitations. Pushover analyses are conducted with story-specific generalized force vectors in this procedure, with contributions from all effective modes. Generalized pushover analysis procedure is extended to three-dimensional torsionally coupled systems in the presented study. Generalized force distributions are expressed as the com...
