Özet

Considering the fact that similar structural and construction deficiencies which are exposed during the recent destructive earthquake events are existing in many southern European, Middle Eastern and west Asian countries settling on highly seismic zones, designating the seismic adequacy of the existing building stock for providing structural safety is a significant necessitation in the mitigation of losses during the future seismic events. In most of these regions, a clear majority of the building stock has not been adequately designed or constructed in terms of the seismic regulations of the design codes, while some have even not benefitted from engineering services. Post-earthquake site observations demonstrate the insufficient capacities in these buildings depending on different structural and construction deficiencies. Within the scope of this research, it is aimed to investigate and compare the analytically calculated structural performances of a building ensemble consists of 3-5 story structures with known damage level by utilizing different procedures.
