In Turkey located on active earthquake zone, earthquake resistant building design becomes more important with the rapidly increasing population and urbanization. In the great earthquakes occurred in our country for centuries, many people lost their lives after the earthquake damaged the buildings and this also increase the importance of building an earthquake resistant structure. The performance based seismic design evaluates how the buildings are likely to implement under an earthquake motion and is comprised linear elastic and nonlinear elastic methods in recent seismic codes. In this study, the performance based design of a four-storey and three-span reinforced concrete frame system is performed according to the Turkish Building Earthquake Code (TBEC-2018). The nonlineer static pushover analysis of the reinforced concrete (RC) frame system carried out for DD-2 level earthquake and it has been determined whether it has the performance criteria targeted in the code.
