Fundamental Concepts of Performance Based Earthquake Engineering

2015-08-29
In modern earthquake engineering, seismic performance properties are more important than the resistance properties of structures. Seismic performance of a structure is related to the expected damage level under an earthquake excitation, and how this damage relates to safety and use of the building. Accordingly, estimation of member deformations becomes more critical than the estimation of internal forces since the deformations in the post elastic regions of the structure are well correlated with damage in these regions. Fundamental issues of performance based seismic design in the next generation of seismic codes are evaluated in this paper. Their ranges of applicability, limitations and prediction accuracies are evaluated comparatively. Finally, difficulties in the practical implementation of these procedures and the required level of engineering knowledge are discussed. Basic examples are presented on the implementation of performance based design.

Multi-objective performance based design optimization of steel structures
Eser, Hasan; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-5)
Seismic performance of structures designed in accordance with conventional force-based design (FBD) codes can vary significantly since (1) estimation and distribution of earthquake loads are based on initial stiffness of members and (2) force reduction factors are based on the rough assumption that all members will yield simultaneously. In recent decades, attempts to predict the seismic performance of structures resulted in the development of several guidelines for evaluation and rehabilitation of existing ...
Nonlinear performance analysis of steel lattice energy distribution towers
Köşker, Yunus Anıl; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-2)
Steel lattice tower structures play a vital role in overhead energy transmission and distribution networks. The safety of the towers has a great significance in order to keep power systems functioning. Despite their crucial function, these structures are susceptible to damage and sometimes total collapse as a result of environmental overloading. The collapse of tower structures in varying magnitude has been reported due to changing global weather patterns in the past few years. On January 16th, 2019, strong...
Analysis Methods for the Investigation of the Seismic Response of Concrete Dams
Aldemir, Alper; Yilmazturk, Sema Melek; Yucel, Ali Riza; Binici, Barış; Arıcı, Yalın; Akman, Altug (2015-01-01)
The consideratiOn of the dam-foundation-reservoir interaction is extremely important for estimating the seismic response of concrete gravity dams. Moreover, nonlinear analysis may be required for determining the possible risk associated with dams. In order to address these issues, DSI recently published the "Guidelines for Seismic Design of Concrete Dams". Authors who have contributed to the preparation of this document provide a perspective on the seismic safety/design of concrete dams and structural analy...
Performance Assessment of Turkish Residential Buildings for Seismic Damage and Loss Estimation
Un, Elif M.; Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (2015-04-01)
This study aims to present an integrated method in a probabilistic manner for seismic performance assessment of Turkish residential buildings, which can be used as a tool to estimate earthquake losses due to structural damage. In particular, the objective is to determine the performances of different types of residential buildings for predicting the potential seismic loss in terms of casualties (death toll) for a highly populated city in northwestern Turkey. The main phases of this study are seismic hazard,...
Comparative assessment of the efficiency of seismic isolation for seismic retrofitting of highway bridges in regions of low-to-moderate seismicity
Karalar, Memduh; Dicleli, Murat (null; 2019-07-06)
In this paper, the economical and structural efficiency of friction pendulum bearings (FPB) for retrofitting typical seismically vulnerable bridges in the State of Illinois is studied. For this purpose, a bridge was selected by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to represent typical seismically vulnerable bridges commonly used in the State of Illinois. A comprehensive structural model of the bridge was first constructed for seismic analysis. An iterative multi-mode response spectrum (MMRS) ana...
