Material model





Structural dimensions and number of floors are some of the factors affecting the building behaviour under the earthquake effects. In this study, the structural footprint and the number of floors were selected as a variable. For this purpose, a steel structure model with fixed dimensions and properties of load-bearing system elements was selected. The structural footprint was selected as the first variable and then five different structure models were created. The structural footprint was changed by setting each axial clearance in both directions. Each axial clearance was increased by 0.5m in each structure model. Three different number of floors as to be 5, 6 and 7 floors were selected as the second variable. Eigenvalue and pushover analyses were performed for each model and each number of floors. As a result of the analyses, the target displacement values for period, frequency, cumulative participation mass ratio, base shear force, settlement, stiffness and degree of damage were acquired separately. As the structural footprint and number of the floors increase, while the period, settlement and the target displacement values increased, on the contrary, there was a decrease in participation mass ratio, base shear forces and stiffness values. In the study, cost comparisons of building construction were also made considering the change in the total structural area and the number of floors. The criterion of safety and economy was ignored due to increase both in the number of floors and the footprint. This study emphasizes the importance of avoiding the unnecessary structural dimensions via optimum design principles. As structural footprint area and number of floors increase, period values increase, stiffness and seismic capacity values decrease. As the number of floors and footprint area increases, the total building area increases, so the approximate building cost has also increased.

13/04/2022 Fraudulent Emails Impersonating Our Journal: We noticed that some emails are sent to some people impersonating our journal staff as sender and requesting recipients to follow some links. Our journal and staff has nothing to do with these emails and please do not follow the given links. Senders seem to have malicious aims. The emails include a portion of some of our previous emails to the journal users and researchers. This is only to deceive the receiver and make them trust the email. Do not follow any links or perform suspicious actions specified in these emails. Please, check the sender info carefully. Even the sender address or name resembles the journal related words they are different, generally in an easily noticeable way.


09/03/2022 Outstanding Reviewer Award: The reviewers are the anonymous heroes of the publishing society. Reviewing manuscripts is not an easy task but it is critical to the advancement of scientific knowledge. Even if authors take credit for publishing papers, the recognition of the reviewers are highly limited for their work. Therefore, our journal announces the reviewers that participated in editorial processes of the submitted articles in a yearly basis. Now, we expand our efforts to appreciate the valuable contribution of our reviewers and start to give Outstanding Reviewer Awards.


More info can be found at Reviewer Awards section. 


29/12/2021 Best Paper Award: According to the Advisory Board decision, the paper authored by Sahar Ismail, Wassim Raphael, Emmanuel Durand entitled as “Case study of the Beirut port explosion using 3D laser scan and nonlinear finite element model” is awarded the 2021 Best Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.  



29/12/2021 Most Cited Paper Award: According to the Editorial Board evaluation, the paper authored by Sinan Kutluay, Orhan Baytar, Ömer Şahin entitled as “Adsorption kinetics, equilibrium and thermodynamics
of gas-phase toluene onto char produced from almond shells" is awarded the 2021 Most Cited Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.
