Seismic Retrofit of Deficient RC Structures with Internal Steel Frames
ÖZÇELİK, RAMAZAN; Akpinar, Ugur; Binici, Barış (2011-12-01)
This paper describes an experimental study on internal steel frames (ISFs) to retrofit seismically deficient reinforced concrete (RC) frames. One reference and six strengthened frame specimens were tested under constant gravity load and cyclic lateral displacement excursions. Installation of the ISF with and without anchors to the RC frame was examined. Test results showed that the snug tight ISF installed inside an RC frame may suffice to realize the benefit of implementing ISFs. If the horizontal shear st...
Seismic upgrading of reinforced concrete frames with structural steel elements
Özçelik, Ramazan; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
This thesis examines the seismic internal retrofitting of existing deficient reinforced concrete (RC) structures by using structural steel members. Both experimental and numerical studies were performed. The strengthening methods utilized with the scope of this work are chevron braces, internal steel frames (ISFs), X-braces and column with shear plate. For this purpose, thirteen strengthened and two as built reference one bay one story portal frame specimens having 1/3 scales were tested under constant grav...

Seismic performance evaluation of reinforced concrete frames infilled with autoclave aerated concrete masonry
Siddiqui, Umair Ahmed; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (2013)
Seismic risk reduction requires detailed assessment and rehabilitation of vulnerable buildings to avoid significant property and life losses. Several reinforced concrete buildings are deficiently designed and constructed and also contain non-engineered unreinforced masonry infill panels which dominate the seismic response and impart excessive lateral forces for which they are not designed for. Therefore, seismic performance assessment procedures recommended in guidelines and codes needs detailed examination...
Seismic vulnerability assessment using regional empirical data
Yakut, Ahmet; Yucemen, M. Semih (2006-08-01)
This article presents a procedure developed for the seismic performance assessment of low- to mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings in Turkey. The past performance of reinforced concrete buildings during major earthquakes have been compiled and analysed comprehensively using statistical procedures in order to study the empirical correlation between the significant damage inducing parameters and the observed damage. A damage database of nearly 500 representative buildings experiencing the 1999 Kocaeli and D...
