USE OF CUMULATIVE DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS IN ORDER TO ESTIMATE DAMAGE PROBABILITY
In this study, the cumulative distribution function was formed in order to estimate the probability of earthquake damage risk of the residential buildings. Nonlinear Pushover analysis was performed to 25 reinforced concrete residential buildings. The information regarding the buildings was taken from their projects. A 3D computer model was drawn for each building and analysis was applied to these models. 4 damage limits (slight, moderate, extensive and complete) and 5 damage zones (undamaged, slight, medium, extensive and collapse) were determined on the modal capacity curves of the buildings. Probability density functions were calculated with the help of lognormal mean and lognormal standard deviation values of limit states. The cumulative distribution functions were generalized and the probability of the damage was shown. With the results of this work; damage possibility can be estimated for any reinforced concrete residential building which has same features such as soil type, story height, irregularities, soft story etc.
