Structural assessment of traditional stone-timber houses in Turkey

Fahriye H. Halicioglu, Ferit Cakir, Sevilay Demirkesen

Abstract

This study mainly focuses on the performance of historical stone-timber structures. The finite element method (FEM) is used to analyse structural performance of such buildings in order to predict possible damage mechanisms and seismic vulnerability. Traditional Şirince houses in İzmir (Turkey) were selected for the analysis. Results obtained show that the critical section of such combined structures is the transition zone between the ground level and upper floors. Furthermore, the results indicate that the "rubble stone masonry and timber frame" of these combined structures is highly vulnerable to seismic action.

Keywords
