STEEL STRUCTURES AND EARTHQUAKE

Prof. Dr. Nesrin Yardımcı Turkish Construction Steel Association Former President, Yeditepe University Civil Engineering Department Head

SAMPLE SCHOOL RESISTANT TO EARTHQUAKE
During the earthquake occurred at Bingöl in Eastern Turkey in 2003, several students died under the ruined buildings as stated by Prof. Yardımcı within her presentations given to ECCS EB and General Assembly members. Mr. Allan Collins, Chairman of the EB said “Children must not decease due to inappropriate structuring. Let’s initiate a campaign to build a sample steel school in Turkey”. This humanitarian proposal was accepted, and the protocol was signed by Mr. Ata, Governor of Kocaeli Province, Mr. Allan Collins, ECCS Chairman, Prof. Yardımcı, Presiden of TUCSA and EB member of ECCS in April 2005. The sample school, namely Tevfik Seno Arda High School, was constructed in Izmit Turkey and handed over to the Governorship in 2006 by TUCSA and ECCS.
SURVEY ON STEEL STRUCTURES IN EARTHQUAKE AND IN URBAN TRANSFORMATION
Turkish Constructional Steelwork Association (TUCSA) once again shared with the public the advantages steel structures bring to seismic risks with its research “Survey on Steel Structures in Earthquake and in Urban Transformation” first issued in 2017, which had also been shared with the competent departments of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation.
In the report, the suggestions in relation to steel structures listed below were highlighted:
• Consideration of steel structures as a proper alternative for structure types listed below dependant on the soil, earthquake, meteorological conditions and building height in Urban Transformation projects whilst considering seismic conditions,
- High rise buildings,
- Industrial, public and commercial structures,
- Residential buildings with one storey or up to three storeys,
- Transformable buildings in emergencies
- Temporary housings,
- Infrastructure such as bridges, towers etc.
• Steel structure load-bearing systems must be designed considering the characteristics of steel material, but not like reinforced concrete in order to reach more economical  results,
• Preparation of Regulation on Design, Calculation and Execution Principles of Modular and Light Gauge Steel Structures in priority and update of Regulation on Fire Protection of Buildings,
• Sustainable training of technical personnel in authorities approving structures in relation to design principles of projects approved by the same,
• Development of a realistic building audit and
documentation system involving design-materialmanufacturing-installation/construction phases,
• Continuation of studies on financing models and research for alternative applicable methods for reinforcing existing structures against earthquakes.
