The methods that take part in codes and used for analyses of structures under lateral loads, are generally based on linear-elastic behaviour of structures under earthquake effects. In linear-elastic analysis of structural systems, elastic earthquake forces are reduced according to defined reduction factor, which varies based on typical inelastic response of structural systems. Although an elastic analysis gives a good indication of the elastic capacity of structures and indicates where first yielding will occur, but it can not predict failure mechanism of structure and account for redistribution of forces during the progressive yieldings (ATC 40, 1996). The damages and the economical losses during the last major earthquakes (Loma Prieta earthquake and Northridge earthquake), introduced a new approach in seismic design of structures called Performance Based Design and Evaluation. In performance based design and evaluation of structures under earthquake effects, it is necessary to determine the nonlinear behaviour of structures. Both nonlinear time history analysis and nonlinear static analysis procedures are used for this objective. The most basic inelastic analysis method, known as the Time History Analysis, is considered very complex and impractical for general use. For this reason, nonlinear static analysis methods have become popular. The central focus of the nonlinear static analysis methods is the generation of the capacity curve or pushover curve. This curve represents lateral displacement as a function of the force applied to the structure. The use of nonlinear static analysis methods for design and evaluation helps engineers to understand better how structures will behave when subjected to major earthquakes, where it is assumed that the elastic capacity of the structure will be exceeded (ATC 40, 1996). The most common used nonlinear static analysis procedures for the evaluation of the performance levels of structures are the Capacity Spectrum Method, which uses the intersection of the capacity curve with a reduced response spectrum to estimate the maximum displacement and the Displacement Coefficients Method, which provides a direct numerical process for calculating the displacement demand.. CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE CAPACITY SPECTRUM METHOD Application of the Capacity Spectrum Method requires both the demand response spectra and structural capacity curves to be plotted in the spectral acceleration vs. spectral displacement format which is known as Acceleration-Displacement Response Spectra (ADRS). In order to convert a spectrum from the traditional spectral acceleration, S a vs period, T format found in the building code to ADRS format, it is necessary to determine the value of S di for each point on the curve, S ai, T i (Figure 1). This can be done by Equation 1 (ATC 40, 1996). S di T = Sai (1) 4π In order to use the Capacity Spectrum Method, it is also necessary to convert the capacity curve obtained from pushover analysis in terms of base shear, V T and roof displacement, δ max to the capacity spectrum (Figure ). Capacity spectrum is the representation of the capacity curve in ADRS format. This transformation can be done by using Equation and Equation 3.

DÜZGÜN After the representation of response spectra and capacity curves in ADRS format, an initial performance (maximum acceleration a pi and displacement d pi ) point is selected. This may be based on equal-displacement approximation as shown in Figure 3 or any other point based on engineering judgment (FEMA 440, 004). S a Equal Displacement Approximation a pi d pi Capacity Spectrum For Figure 3. Selection of initial performance point Initial ADRS Demand Spectrum With %5 Damping S d Another step in the Capacity Spectrum Method is the construction of bilinear representation of capacity spectrum. A bilinear representation of the capacity spectrum is needed to estimate the effective damping and appropriate reduction of spectral demand. This bilinearezation defines the initial period, T 0, yield displacement, d y, and yield acceleration, a y (Figure 4). By using the values obtained from bilinear representation of capacity spectrum, the values of post-elastic stiffness, α, and ductility, μ, can be calculated as follows in Equation 6 and Equation 7 (FEMA 440, 004).

Effective viscous damping values for all hysteretic model types and alpha values have the following form, where β 0 is hysteretic damping (FEMA 440, 004): 3 β = A( µ 1) + B( µ 1 + β for μ < 4.0 (8a) eff ) eff = C + D( µ 1) + β0 0 β for 4.0 μ 6.5 (8b) F( µ 1) 1 Teff β eff = E + β 0 F( 1) T for μ > 6.5 (8c) µ 0 Values of the coefficients in these equations for effective damping of the hysteretic model type are given in Table 1 (FEMA 440, 004).

Using the effective damping, β eff, B(β eff ) which is used to adjust spectral acceleration ordinates, is calculated (FEMA 440, 004). 4 B = (10) 5.6 lnβ eff (%) Spectral acceleration ordinates are adjusted with the equation given below (FEMA 440, 004).

The estimated maximum acceleration, a i, corresponds to d i on the capacity curve (Figure 5). The estimated maximum displacement, d i, is compared with the initial assumption. If it is within acceptable tolerance (0.95d pi d i 1.05d pi ), the performance point corresponds to a i and d i. If it is not within the acceptable tolarance, the procedure mentioned above is repeated. S a T 0 T eff Capacity Spectrum For a i a pi Initial Demand Spectrum Reduced Demand Spectrum Figure 5.

Determination of performance level 3. THE DISPLACEMENT COEFFICIENTS METHOD The Displacement Coefficients Method provides a direct numerical process for calculating the displacement demand. It does not require converting the capacity curve into spectral coordinates. The nonlinear force-displacement relationship between base shear and displacement shall be replaced with an idealized relationship to calculate the effective lateral stiffness, K e, and effective yield strength, V y, of the structure. This relationship shall be bilinear, with initial slope K e and post yield slope K s. Line segments on the idealized force-displacement curve shall be located using an iterative graphical procedure that approximately balances the area above and below the curve. The effective lateral stiffness, K e, shall be taken as the secant stiffness calculated at the base shear force corresponding to 60% of the effective yield strength of the structure (ATC 40, 1996) (Figure 7). The effective fundamantal period in the direction under consideration shall be based on the idealized force-displacement curve and can be calculated in accordance with the Equation 14. K i T e = Ti (14) K e where T i is elastic fundamental period in the direction under consideration calculated by elastic dynamic analysis, T e is effective period of the structure, K i is elastic lateral stiffness of the structure in the direction under consideration and K e is effective lateral stiffness of the structure in the direction under consideration. The target displacement shall be calculated in accordance with Equation 15 (FEMA 440, 004). Te δ T = C0C1CSa g (15) 4π In this equation C 0 is modification factor to relate spectral displacement of an equivalent single degree of freedom system to the roof displacement of multi degree of freedom system. C 0 can be taken as the first modal participation factor ( PF1 φ roof, 1) at the level of the control node, the modal participation factor at the level of the control node is calculated using a shape vector corresponding to the deflected shape of the structure at the target displacement or the appropriate value from Table 3.

C is the modification factor to represent the effect of pinched hysteretic shape, stiffness degradation and strength deterioration on maximum displacement response. It is recommended that the C coefficient to be as follows. 1 R 1 C = 1+ (18) 800 T C 1 may be assumed to be equal to 1.0 for periods greater than 0.7 sec.

In pushover analyses of the structures, plastic hinge hypothesis is taken into consideration. In that hypothesis, it is assumed that plastic deformations are considered to gather in sections called plastic hinge and other parts of system behave linear elastic. For effective stiffness values, the values given in FEMA 356 are used. In the performance evaluations of the structures, limit values for different performance levels given in FEMA 356 in terms of plastic hinge rotation are taken into consideration (FEMA 356, 000).

CONCLUSIONS In this study, it is intended to determine the performance levels of structural systems under earthquake effects by using the Capacity Spectrum Method and the Displacement Coefficients Method, which are both used to determine performance levels of structures by considering structural capacity obtained from pushover analysis. For this purpose, five-storey reinforced concrete 3D frame system structures having the same floor plan are considered in the analyses. To observe the differences in the performance levels, the above mentioned fivestorey reinforced concrete structure is taken into consideration having the same story heights in the first phase and then the first story height is increased intentionally in order to examine the weak story irregularity. Two five-storey reinforced concrete 3D frame system structures are designed geometrically and materially in accordance with TS 500 and the Turkish Earthquake Code. Life safety structural performance level is chosen as a target for the sample structures under a design earthquake that may be exceeded in a 50-year period with 10 percent probability. Considering the performance levels for the sample structures obtained by the Capacity Spectrum Method and the Displacement Coefficients Method, it can be said that the mentioned two methods gives nearly the same performance levels. According to the performance evaluation with the Capacity Spectrum Method and the Displacement Coefficients Method, the five-storey reinforced concrete 3D frame system structure with the same story heights (RC 5.1.) can easily get the Life Safety performance level under the design earthquake. For the five-storey reinforced concrete 3D frame system structure with the weak story irregularity (RC 5..), the obtained performance levels are worse than the performance levels of the five-storey reinforced concrete 3D frame system structure having the same story heights (RC 5.1.). In the sample structure with the weak story irregularity, the values of plastic hinge rotations in beams and columns (especially in the first story colums) and the story drifts are increased. Considering the results obtained from this study, the earthquake behaviour of the structure with the weak story irregularity is in the negative aspect. In case with weak story irregularity, the total earthquake force that the structure can resist, which is called the seismic capacity of the structure, is decreased.
