Recently updated Turkish Structural Steel Specification [Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning, 2018] has been adopted from American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Specification for Structural Steel Buildings [AISC, 2016]. To facilitate the design of steel structures in Turkey and elsewhere, where European steel sections are used together with AISC Specification, design tables similar to those in AISC Steel Construction Manual [AISC, 2017] providing the capacities of members that use European steel sections are required. This book provides design tables to accompany Turkish Structural Steel Specification for eight European I-shaped steel sections of three different steel grades used in Turkey: HD, HEA, HEB, HEM, IPE, IPEA, IPEO and IPN sections of S235, S275 and S355 steel grades. Design tables are developed for members subject to tension, compression, flexure and combined forces, composite members, connecting elements as well as bolts and welds. Structural engineers are referred to Al Nahawi [2020] for the design equations related to the limit states and the sample calculations in developing these design tables. These tables would aid structural engineers in selecting the appropriate sections and verifying the design calculations.


Design tables for Turkish structural steel code
Al Nahawi, Zaid Mohammed H.; Çelik, Ozan Cem; Topkaya, Cem; Department of Civil Engineering (2020-10)
Steel structures comprise a good share of the industrial construction in Turkey. Accordingly, developing systematic means for structural steel design would directly translate into reduced engineering time in a project. American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) provides practicing engineers with a design manual to facilitate the design process. The design tables in this manual, however, cannot be used in Turkey. Turkish Structural Steel Code has recently been adopted from AISC Specification for S...
Design provisions for stair slabs in the Bangladesh Building Code
Kilic, H; Citipitioglu, E (1997-08-01)
This paper deals with the current state of the building code provisions for the structural design of concrete stair slabs in general and those proposed for the Bangladesh National Building Code (BNBC) in particular. The design of stairs has not received due attention in most building codes. As a result, stairs, as they occur with a variety of support conditions, are designed based on the individual designer's judgment. This results in considerable overdesign with some particular types of support arrangement...
Performance Based Seismic Evaluation of a 62 Story RC Tower in Istanbul
Budak, Erhan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2018-06-18)
A 62-story tall reinforced concrete office building with a free-standing height of 250 m has been designed in Istanbul in accordance with the new Turkish Earthquake Code (TEC, 2017). According to TEC 2017, buildings taller than 70 m and located in the first and second seismic zones are classified as tall buildings and these building shall be designed to meet the special rules based on performance-based seismic design approach. The tall building in Istanbul, having a parallelogram shaped floor plan and reinf...
Structural rehabilitation of damaged RC buildings after the 1 october 1995 Dinar earthquake
Wasti, ST; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Utku, M (2001-04-01)
This paper contains technical information related to the Dinar project for the rehabilitation of moderately damaged reinforced concrete buildings after the 1 October 1995 Dinar earthquake. The structural appraisal of the damaged buildings, analytical studies leading to decisions regarding structural rehabilitation or demolition, the supervision on site of the rehabilitation and the overall coordination of the project was entrusted to the Middle East Technical University Earthquake Engineering Research Cente...
Modelling of strengthened hollow brick infills
BARAN, MEHMET; Ozcelik, Ramazan; Sevil, Tugce; Canbay, Erdem (2013-02-01)
Strengthening the existing hollow brick infill walls by bonding high-strength precast concrete panels or applying steel fibre reinforced mortar was found to be an occupant-friendly seismic retrofitting technique for the buildings in use with deficient reinforced concrete structural systems. Both techniques convert the existing non-structural hollow brick infill walls into load-carrying structural members. To verify the effectiveness of the techniques, 20 reinforced concrete frames with hollow brick infill w...
