Abstract

Title: Field Testing of a Non-ductile Reinforced Concrete Building in Turkey (NEES-2010-0929)

Year Of Curation: 2013

Description: This project brings together the technical expertise and advanced testing capabilities of a group of researchers from the US and Turkey to provide unique data on behavior and performance of older reinforced concrete buildings. This type of construction comprises the majority of residential, public service (i.e., schools, hospitals), and commercial buildings in the industrial heartland of Turkey; and there are a significant number of similarly vulnerable buildings within more active seismic regions in the USA (e.g., California, Washington, Utah, South Carolina, etc). In California, the vulnerable buildings are typically pre-1973 vintage.
