Over the past several decades, Turkey has been hit by devastating earthquakes and remarkable number of
reinforced concrete buildings has been damaged in the high seismicity regions of our country. The aim of this
study is to evaluate the seismic performance of the mid-rise reinforced concrete buildings that are major part of
building stock of our earthquake-prone country, according to recent Turkish Earthquake Code. 4- and 7-story
buildings were selected to represent mid-rise building stock. After determining the structural parameters, each
building was subjected to pushover analysis and the capacity curves were obtained. Earthquake performance of
each building was determined in the light of their capacity curves according to the recent Turkish Earthquake
