Fragility based assessment of lowrise and midrise reinforced concrete frame buildings in Turkey
Ay, Bekir Özer; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In this study, structural vulnerability of reinforced concrete frame structures by considering the countryspecific characteristics is investigated to manage the earthquake risk and to develop strategies for disaster mitigation. Lowrise and midrise reinforced concrete structures, which constitute approximately 75% of the total building stock in Turkey, are focused in this fragilitybased assessment. The seismic design of 3, 5, 7 and 9story reinforced concrete frame structures are carried out according to the ...
Fragility Based Assessment of the Structural Deficiencies in Turkish RC Frame Structures
Ay, Bekir Özer; Erberik, Murat Altuğ (null; 2006-09-08)
Low–rise and mid–rise reinforced concrete (RC) structures, which constitute approximately 75% of the total building stock in Turkey, are focused in this fragility–based assessment. The seismic design of three, five, seven and nine story RC frame structures are carried out according to the current earthquake codes and two dimensional analytical models are formed accordingly. The uncertainty in material variability is taken into account in the formation of structural simulations. Frame structures are categori...
FRAGILITY CURVES FOR RC BUILDINGS OF DUZCE (TURKEY) USING SIMULATED RECORDS
Kadas, Koray; Karımzadeh, Shaghayegh; Askan, Ayşegül; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Yakut, Ahmet (null; 2018-06-25)
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...
Fragility based assessment of lowrise and midrise reinforced concrete frame buildings in turkey using Düzce damage database
Özün, Ahsen; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
In this study, the seismic fragility assessment of low-rise and mid-rise reinforced concrete frame buildings which constitute approximately 75 % of the total building stock in Turkey is investigated to quantify the earthquake risk. The inventory used in this study is selected from Düzce damage database which was compiled after the devastating 1999 earthquakes in the Marmara region. These buildings are not designed according to the current code regulations and the supervision in the construction phase is not...
Fragility based seismic vulnerability assessment of ordinary highway bridges in Turkey
Avşar, Özgür; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
Recent devastating earthquakes revealed that bridges are one of the most vulnerable components of the transportation systems. These seismic events have emphasized the need to mitigate the risk resulting from the failure of the bridges. Depending on the seismicity of the bridge local site, seismic vulnerability assessment of the bridges can be done based on the fragility curves. These curves are conditional probability functions which give the probability of a bridge attaining or exceeding a particular damag...
