Analysis of a historic masonry building

Cengiz Ozmen, Asli Er Akan, Ali Ihsan Unay

Abstract

The paper starts from the observation that historic masonry buildings are often modified and altered to make them fit for present day use. A single-family masonry house in Turkey, situated in an earthquake prone area and built in the early 20th century, is studied. The analysis is made based on Turkish regulations for the initial building and for the building after alterations. Introduction of a reinforced-concrete slab has greatly improved seismic resistance of the building.
