Ground motion prediction equations based on simulated ground motions
Gür, Kader; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Kale, Özkan; Department of Earthquake Studies (2018)
Ground Motion Prediction Equations (GMPEs) are one of the key elements in seismic hazard assessment to estimate ground motion intensity measures by basically taking into account source, path and site effects. Most of the existing predictive models are derived from databases compiled from real (or observed) ground motion data. However, in data-poor regions, a novel practice to develop new GMPEs is to use simulated or hybrid ground motion datasets for performing reliable seismic hazard analysis. Simulations o...
Seismic damage assessment of a historic masonry building under simulated scenario earthquakes: A case study for Arge-Tabriz
Hoveidae, Nader; Fathi, Ahmad; Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh (2021-08-01)
Damage prediction of existing buildings against natural events is a challenge for engineers. Although several approaches have been proposed in the bibliography for damage assessment of steel and concrete structures, more studies are required to survey the damage state of masonry buildings. In this research, seismic damage of a historical masonry building, named Arge-Tabriz, has been assessed using region-specified simulated ground motion records. The main goal of the research is to predict the damage levels...
Ground motion simulations based on regional input parameters and their impact on insurance premiums: Bursa case
Ünal, Barış; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Earthquake Studies (2015)
Determination of earthquake parameters are required for earthquake resistant design and retrofitting of exsisting structures. There are not many options to obtain earthquake data for regions with no or sparce earthquake recordings. Even though some methods are aplicable to these regions they generate only peak ground motion parameters. For cases that require the full ground motion simulations are necessary. Simulations can also be used for gaining knowledge about source, path and site effects. In this study...
Seismic vulnerability, behavior and design of tunnel form building structures
Balkaya, C; Kalkan, E (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
Multi-story reinforced concrete tunnel form buildings are one of the common structural types in regions prone to high seismic risk due to the buildings inherent earthquake resistance and ease of construction. Despite their good performance during earthquakes in 1999 in Turkey, and abundance of such structures scattered worldwide, current seismic codes and design provisions provide insufficient guidelines for their seismic design. As a compensatory measure, a series of modal and nonlinear static analyses are...
Seismic response of autoclaved aerated concrete masonry infill walls under in-plane and out-of-plane seismic demands
Binici, Barış; Canbay, Erdem; Uzgan, Ugur; ERYURTLU, ZAFER; Yakut, Ahmet (2018-09-01)
Infill walls of reinforced concrete (RC) frames exhibit significant vulnerability when subjected to in‐plane (IP) and out‐of‐plane (OOP) seismic demands. Despite the vast number of tests investigating the behavior of brick masonry infill walls in RC frames, past research is concerned with infill walls made up of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blocks. In this study, six single‐bay, single‐story, half‐scaled RC frames were tested under the action of IP cyclic displacement excursions and/or OOP pressure. Th...
