Performance evaluation of reinforced concrete buildings with softer ground floors

R. Tuğrul Erdem

Abstract

Determination of seismic performance is a significant task in the performance-based seismic analysis of structures. The consistency between analysis results obtained according to various codes is highly significant for seismic evaluation of structures. Non-linear performance of three reinforced concrete buildings having a soft storey irregularity is studied based on the finite elements analysis according to FEMA-356, FEMA-440, and Turkish Earthquake Code - 2007. Damage situations, modal properties, storey drift ratios, and global performance levels are comparatively presented for each structure, and appropriate suggestions are given.

Keywords
finite elements analysis, irregular structures, non-linear procedures, seismic performance
