Seismic Risk Prioritization and Retrofit Cost Evaluation of Code-Deficient RC Public Buildings in Turkey
Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Yakut, Ahmet (SAGE Publications, 2015-02-01)
A risk prioritization procedure is developed for deficient concrete public buildings within the scope of a seismic risk reduction program. The main purpose is identifying public buildings with high damage risk in a region for efficient retrofit investments. Regularity of structural systems and repeatability of deficiencies in public buildings provide opportunities for developing simple and reliable assessment procedures. The proposed procedure is based on calculating a risk index from the comparison of late...
Seismic Risk Assessment of Masonry Buildings in Istanbul for Effective Risk Mitigation
Erberik, Murat Altuğ (SAGE Publications, 2010-11-01)
Unreinforced and non-engineered masonry buildings are highly vulnerable to seismic hazard and constitute a significant percentage of earthquake losses, including both casualties and economic losses. This study presents an engineering application on seismic safety assessment of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings in Istanbul, Turkey, a metropolitan city under very high seismic risk. Nearly 20,000 masonry buildings were examined through a two-stage assessment procedure in order to identify the addresses of t...
Seismic Performance of a Deficient Reinforced Concrete Test Frame with Infill Walls
Kurt, Efe G.; Binici, Barış; Kurç, Özgür; Canbay, Erdem; Akpinar, Akpinar; Ozcebe, Guney (SAGE Publications, 2011-08-01)
A two-story, three-bay RC frame with code incompliant seismic design and detailing is tested using continuous pseudodynamic test method for three scale levels of Duzce ground motion. The ground motion produced minimum, significant, and severe damage states on the test structure. Diagonal cracking of the infill wall, column damage in the form of cover spalling and rebar buckling, and complete disintegration of the infill wall were the important observed damage events for the three scale levels, respectively....
Seismic Resistance Evaluation of Traditional Ottoman Timber-Frame Himis Houses: Frame Loadings and Material Tests
Aktas, Yasemin Didem; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Türer, Ahmet; Erdil, Barış; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman (SAGE Publications, 2014-11-01)
Traditional Ottoman timber-frame houses ("himis") form the major part of the cultural heritage structures in Turkey. There are many studies in the literature regarding the seismic performance of himis houses, which claim that these structures have an inherent seismically resistant property. However, these studies lack a quantitative engineering approach and are based on observations made after contemporary earthquakes. This study presents the results of the seismic resistance evaluation of traditional Ottom...
Seismic Performance Assessment of Unreinforced Masonry Buildings with a Hybrid Modeling Approach
Aldemir, Alper; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Demirel, I. Ozan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (SAGE Publications, 2013-02-01)
This study proposes a hybrid modeling approach for the seismic performance assessment of unreinforced masonry buildings. The method combines finite-element and equivalent-frame approaches such that more powerful features of each approach are utilized. The finite-element approach is used to model the masonry components of different geometrical and material characteristics with a high level of accuracy. Then this numerically simulated database is used in the analytical modeling of masonry buildings with equiv...
