Generalized fragility curves for earthquake insurance premiums
Ekici, Melis Aysun; Yakut, Ahmet; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Earthquake Studies (2015)
Since there are three major earthquake lines on Anatolia which are North Anatolian Fault, East Anatolian Fault and West Anatolian Fault, earthquake is one of the most important issue for Turkey. Following the damages of Kocaeli (1999) Earthquake to our economy, importance of earthquake insurance was understood and therefore Compulsory Earthquake Insurance was put into action. However, for the calculation of insurance premiums which were specified by Turkish Catastrophe Insurance Pool (TCIP), only type of bu...
Generalized force vectors for multi-mode pushover analysis of bridges
Perdomo, Camilo; Monteiro, Ricardo; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2017-12-01)
Nonlinear static procedures (NSPs) are gaining wider use in performance based earthquake engineering practice due to their simplicity compared to rigorous nonlinear time history analysis (NTHA), and being implemented in the new generation of seismic design codes. In this study, a recently proposed Nonlinear Static Procedure (NSP) for the seismic performance assessment of building structures using the concept of generalized force vectors (GFV), is further validated through application to reinforced concrete ...
Generalized Pushover Analysis For Torsionally Coupled Systems
Kaatsız, Kaan; Alıcı, Fırat Soner; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2017-01-13)
Generalized pushover analysis procedure that was previously formulated on 2D planar frames is extended to 3D systems with torsional coupling in the presented study. The instantaneous force distribution acting on the system when the interstory drift at a story reaches its maximum value during seismic response is defined as the generalized force distribution. This force distribution is then expressed in terms of combinations of modal forces. Modal contributions to the generalized force vectors are calculated ...
Generalized pushover analysis for unsymmetrical plan buildings
Kaatsız, Kaan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
Nonlinear response history analysis is regarded as the most accurate analysis procedure for estimating seismic response. Approximate analysis procedures are also available for the determination of seismic response and they are preferred over nonlinear response history analysis since much less computational effort is required and good response prediction is achieved by employing rather simple concepts. A generalized pushover analysis procedure is developed in this thesis study as an approximate analysis tool...
Generalized beam angle statistics for shape descrition
Tola, Ömer Önder; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, we introduce a new shape descriptor and a graph based matching algorithm to detect a template shape in an image that contains a single object. The shape descriptor, Generalized Beam Angle Statistics, GBAS is obtained with the generalization of the boundary based shape descriptor, Beam Angle Statistics, BAS
