Seismic Fragility Curves for 1 and 2 Stories R/C Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the fragility curves were formed for 1 and 2 stories reinforced concrete (RC) residential buildings. The information regarding the structures was taken from projects of the buildings. Nonlinear pushover (NP) analyze was performed to 84 RC buildings which were divided to 2 groups. The buildings built 1998 and later were called Group-A. The building built before 1998 was called Group B. As for nonlinear analysis, a 3D computer model was drawn for each building and nonlinear analyses were applied to these models. Each building was analyzed for 2 dimensions (X and Y). Totally 168 NP analysis were performed for each building. 4 damage limits (slight, moderate, heavy and complete) and 5 damage zones (undamaged, slight, medium, extensive and collapse) were determined according to maximum interstory drift ratio. Fragility curve parameters were obtained at the result of the NP analysis. Probability density functions were calculated with the help of lognormal mean and lognormal standard deviation values of limit states. The fragility curves were generalized for the buildings in Group A and Group B. At the conclusion of this work; 8 fragility curves obtained for 1 and 2 stories reinforced concrete buildings in. Using these 8 curves; damage possibility can be estimated for RC buildings which have same features.
