Influence of Shear Wall Index on the Seismic Performance of Reinforced Concrete Buildings



Influence of the shear wall area to floor area ratio on the seismic performance of existing reinforced concrete buildings
Günel, Ahmet Orhun; Burak Bakır, Burcu; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
An analytical study is performed to evaluate the influence of shear wall area to floor area ratio on the behavior of existing mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings under earthquake loading. The seismic performance of five existing school buildings with shear wall ratios between 0.00% and 2.50% in both longitudinal and transverse directions and their strengthened counterparts are evaluated. Based on the structural properties of the existing buildings, additional buildings with varying shear wall ratios are ...

Influence of ground motion scaling methods on seismic response of highway bridges
Gözütok Gündüz, Merve; Yakut, Ahmet; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Department of Earthquake Studies (2022-8-29)
Seismic behavior of bridges is a vital issue for all earthquake prone countries. Accurate seismic analysis of bridges is important because bridges are one of the most important transportation networks in Turkiye which is an earthquake prone country located on three main fault lines as Northern Anatolia Fault, East Anatolia Fault and West Anatolia Fault. In engineering practice in Turkiye there are three main specifications which are AASHTO LRFD Design Specifications for Bridge Design, Eurocodes and Turkish ...
Influence of seismic source and ground motion modeling on the probabilistic seismic hazard assessment of the city of Van after the 23 october 2011 mw7.2 earthquake
Şenyurt, Mehtap; Akkar, Sinan; Yılmaz, Mustafa Tolga; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Reliable assessment of seismic hazard is the most important step for seismic design and performance assessment of structural systems. However, the inherent uncertainty in earthquakes as well as modeling of ground motion may affect the hazard computed for a particular region. This study investigates the influence of seismic source and ground motion modeling on probabilistic seismic hazard assessment (PSHA). The study considers the seismicity around the city of Van to achieve its objective as this city was hi...
