Structural damages to RC (Reinforced concrete) buildings occasionally occur as a consequence of sudden ground movements. One of these is effect of tunnel excavation on the structures and the design process should be carried out by taking the effect into account. In this study, the structural damages caused by the Impact of sudden movement emanating at the ground were investigated for a selected hospital building. Within the scope of this study, it was aimed to obtain the most accurate data by combining different engineering disciplines through a comprehensive approach.
