Structural Safety Assessment of Antalya Kepez Sütçüler State Hospital Building
The surveys of the ongoing Sütçüler State Hospital construction in Kepez District of Antalya Province were taken and the necessary field studies (core extraction, x-ray imaging, ground investigation, etc.) were carried out to assess the structural vulnerability of the building. Using the information obtained, existing structure was modeled and earthquake performance analyzes were conducted. Based on the outcome, retrofitting and strengthening measures were designed. The State Hospital structure within the scope of the project has a construction area of 8.000 m2.
