Özet

Masonry buildings constitute most of the buildings in our country. Although they are used both in rural areas and city centres, supplying the material around the building area is an important factor. Thus, especially in the countryside these types of buildings are more preferable but there may be problems under dynamic loads such as horizontal loads and earthquake when some rules in architecture are not obeyed.
