Performance-based seismic assessment method for medium-rise RC buildings

Halil Görgün, Derman Kaya, Mehmet Emin Öncü, Senem Yılmaz Çetin

Abstract

Severe earthquakes registered in Turkey over the last five decades have shown that most of the existing buildings exhibit low resistance to earthquake action. In this study, a simplified version of the performance based rapid seismic assessment method (PERA) is proposed for the analysis of medium-size reinforced-concrete buildings. The influence of a critical storey is also considered when evaluating performance of the entire building. Good agreement is obtained between predictions by the simplified method, the PERA method, and the code based structural performance assessment procedures.
