Area and population of Turkey which is situated on an important fault are on earthquakezone. Therefore, the earthquake resistant structural design is being very important day by day.
The upsetting memories are adequate by themselves to understand the importance of theearthquake. The earthquakes occurred in the near past taught the people to live together with
the earthquakes and to construct their buildings to resist against earthquake.The purpose of this study is to investigate the faults made in project and construction
stages of buildings constructed in Ankara after the Earthquake Code-2007, to observe thatthere are any lessons learned from the past earthquakes. For this purpose, questionnaires are
used, and sufficient number of building is investigated.This study consists of four chapters. In the first chapter, general information about
earthquake and its parameters, earthquake resistant structural design, general rules that shouldbe considered in the architectural project, structural forms, members of the structural forms,
faults made in project and construction stages of buildings, and the aim and scope of the studyare presented. In the second chapter, the sufficient number of buildings constructed in the city
of Ankara after March 06, 2007 is investigated in terms of the minimum and maximumconditions of the Turkish Earthquake Code-2007, and TS 500. In the third chapter, the
conclusions drawn from the results are given and some recommendations are made. Thischapter is followed by the list of references.
It is concluded that the lessons learned from the past earthquake is not enough, and thatthere is not an efficient control mechanism in construction stages of the buildings, and that the
necessary care in the construction stage of the buildings is not shown.Key Words: Project Stage, Construction Stage, Faults, Earthquake Resistant Design, the
Earthquake Code, TS 500.
