Abstract: This study was conducted to determine a significant relationship between planimetric configuration and vulnerability of hazardous buildings located in seismic zones by developing design and construction efficiency indicators. Case study examples were chosen from residential buildings in Bolu, Düzce and Kaynasli in Turkey, which were damaged by the 1999 earthquakes. Utilizing field survey drawings, efficiency quotients; compactness quotients; construction efficiency ratios; aspect ratios and height-to-base ratios were defined as planimetric configuration indicators. The significant relationship between these aspects and the damage level of buildings were determined through statistical analyses and scatter charts. Planimetric configuration - including building geometry, cantilever projections and layout of columns -was reviewed according to the Turkish Earthquake Code. Findings revealed certain dependencies for efficiency ratios, which would satisfactorily predict the seismic vulnerability of buildings based on planimetric configuration. Researchers in the field of architecture who are engaged in earthquake-resistant design may use the general methodology. In addition, architects and structural engineers can use this approach presented here to evaluate their design.
