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.‎
