abstract

An attempt is made to analyze the damage caused to reinforced concrete-framed structures in the towns of İzmit and Adapazarı by the Mudurnu Valley earthquake of July 22, 1967. The observed damage shows that elaborate calculations for the design of structures to withstand earthquake forces are of little use unless they are based upon sound concepts, proper details, and are carried out by construction practice of good quality.
