Will my house withstand an earthquake?
Among the earthquake-resistant building determination methods used when conducting investigations in accordance with the earthquake regulations, first of all, checking the age of the building is the first thing to do.
Especially after the great Marmara earthquake in 1999, the structures built in accordance with the new earthquake regulation created by the state show higher durability, while the structures built in the old periods are in a more risky position.
Sometimes, the owners of the buildings make the structures that were built in the old period and pose a risk, with a solid appearance with exterior cladding, paint and damage repairs, but a dangerous situation may arise in these structures.
However, the older a building has, the less its resistance to earthquakes becomes.
Today, with the implementation of earthquake regulations, it is more advantageous to have earthquake-resistant buildings in the buildings built.
Because these structures are inspected by local administrations and necessary institutions during construction and inspection companies provide services in this regard, uninspected structures are in illegal condition.
The ground on which the building is built is one of the issues that increase its durability, along with the realization of the inspections subject to the regulation.
During the construction of the building, either suitable foundation conditions should be created according to the ground on which it is located, or if these conditions cannot be created, the building should not be built on a broken ground.
ATTENTION TO 7 CRITERIA THAT GIVES A RISK ALARM
1) If the building was built before 1999
2) If the building was built without a project and without a license
3) If ready-mixed concrete is not used in the construction
4) If the core concrete strength previously taken from the building is below C1O
5) If there are cracks in the columns and beams of the building
6) If there is moisture in the basement, corrosion on the column bars, sea shells on the concrete or similar
7) If the building is in a creek bed or embankment, it may be risky.
