Relative storey drifts is limited by earthquake codes for earthquake safety of structures. In 2016Turkish Earthquake Code (TEC 2016), which has yet in draft, the criteria for delimitation ofrelative story drifts have been specified. Compared to the previous ones, this earthquake codeincluded the use of flexible jointed infill wall - frame joints which affect the relative storey driftlimit. In this study, the limitation rules of the effective relative storey drifts are explained indetail in the case of the use of flexible jointed infill wall-frame joints specified in the section"Calculation and Limitation of Effective Relative Storey Drifts" of the TEC 2016. In addition,the maximum allowable effective storey drifts are calculated separately for each province center.
