Abstract

This paper is based on the study of the damages by earthquakes on the historical buildings constructed in Bysantine and Ottoman period and represents a preliminary approach to the problem of identifying the causes of these damages influenced by soil conditions. In this paper, some aspects of soil conditions and foundations systems are given related to the preservation of monument, especially the presentation is concentrated on the following topics: • An estimation of seismic area and on Design basis response spectra for historical buildings. • Geotechnical problems of the old city Istanbul. • Statistical aspects of masonry of Bysantine and Ottoman buildings. • Seismic behaviour of the masonry of Bysantine and Ottoman buildings. • A prevention system for historical buildings against hazardous future earthquakes.

Earthquake Damages Influenced by Soil Conditions in Historical Buildings in Istanbul

St. Louis, Missouri

This paper is based on the study of the damages by earthquakes on the historical buildings constructed in Bysantine and Ottoman period and represents a preliminary approach to the problem of identifying the causes of these damages influenced by soil conditions. In this paper, some aspects of soil conditions and foundations systems are given related to the preservation of monument, especially the presentation is concentrated on the following topics: • An estimation of seismic area and on Design basis response spectra for historical buildings. • Geotechnical problems of the old city Istanbul. • Statistical aspects of masonry of Bysantine and Ottoman buildings. • Seismic behaviour of the masonry of Bysantine and Ottoman buildings. • A prevention system for historical buildings against hazardous future earthquakes.
