Seismic response and vulnerability assessment of Tunnels: a case study on Bolu Tunnels
Üçer, Serkan; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
The aim of the study is to develop new analytical fragility curves for the vulnerability assessment of tunnels based on actual damage data of tunnels obtained from past earthquakes. For this purpose, additional important damage data belonging to Bolu Tunnels, Turkey was utilized as a case study. Bolu Tunnels constitute a very interesting case from the earthquake hazard point of view, since two major earthquakes, 17 August 1999 Marmara and 12 November 1999 Düzce, occurred during the construction of the tunne...
Seismic performance of unbonded elastomeric bearings on bridges : an experimental and parametric study
Domaniç, Kemal Arman; Caner, Alp; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Elastomeric bearings were used in a majority of bridges completed in Turkey. Usually, the connection between bearings and the structure were established only by means of friction. Vertical excitation can contribute to a significant damage in such cases, especially at bearing locations, as indeed was the case in the recent 1999 İzmit Earthquake. In Turkish seismic design practice, a common friction coefficient of 0.20 is frequently used. The aim of this study is to look into the values suggested by specifica...

Seismic fragilities for non-ductile reinforced concrete frames - Role of aleatoric and epistemic uncertainties
Çelik, Ozan Cem (2010-01-01)
Seismic fragilities are essential to earthquake loss estimation and performance-based earthquake engineering in regions of high seismicity. Construction practices for frames in regions of moderate seismicity are quite different, and such frames have received less attention in the literature. Fragilities for performance levels identified in recent seismic regulations are developed herein for reinforced concrete frames designed for gravity load in low-seismic regions using probabilistic non-linear finite elem...
