Bingöl ve Elazığ İlleri Özelinde 2007 ve 2018 Türk Deprem Yönetmeliklerine Göre İvme Spektrumlarının Değişiminin İncelenmesi


Nowadays, in order to be able to use the technological developments occurring in the construction field actively and correctly in practice, 2007 Turkish Earthquake Code was abolished as of January 01,2020 and 2018 Turkey Earthquake Code was introduced. Due to presence of active tectonic faults within the borders of Turkey, earthquake design in structure has great importance. Design acceleration spectra are used to determine the earthquake loads that will affect the structures in earthquake design. The aim of this study is to examine the changes in the earthquake calculation principles that occurred when passing from the 2007 Turkish earthquake code to the 2018 Turkish earthquake code. In this study, acceleration spectra of Bingöl and Elazığ city centers, which are located in two different earthquake zones according to the 2007 Turkish Earthquake Code, were compared according to the 2007 and 2018 Turkish Earthquake Codes. The variation of acceleration spectra, fundamental periods, and coordinate-based spectrum coefficients according to different ground classes for different earthquake ground motion levels for these regions in the study were examined. When the 2007 Turkish Earthquake Code and the 2018 Turkish Earthquake Code are compared, the acceleration spectra in the 2007 Turkish Earthquake Code do not differ regionally. In 2018 Turkish Earthquake Code, Ministry of Interior Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency created; Earthquake Hazard Map of Turkey, focused change of coordinates received acceleration parameters, show differences in acceleration spectrum as originating from a regional difference was seen to occur. Acceleration spectra varies according to the location of 2018 Turkish earthquake code working on coordinate in earthquake design principles. In the 2007 Turkish earthquake code, the acceleration spectra do not vary according to location. Therefore, in terms of earthquake design principles, it can be said that the acceleration values in the 2018 Turkish earthquake regulation show an economic and safe situation compared to the constant acceleration values in the 2007 Turkish earthquake code.
