The purpose of this article is to develop a simplified structural analysis method for determining the load-bearing capacity of traditional buildings with timber frames and infill adobe walls, which have a very important architectural value in our cultural heritage, against various loads and environmental effects. Numerical models of the existing building are prepared and structural analyzes are performed before the repair and strengthening works of historical buildings. The structural analysis of traditional timber buildings differs from the analysis approaches of today’s modern structures. In the structural analysis of such a building, criteria such as member sizes of structural frames, connection details, and material properties of unit elements may not be analyzed with a simple approach as the methods used in modern structures. For that reason, it is necessary to develop a simplified structural analysis method to reach the closest results in the conservation and strengthening studies of traditional timber buildings. The simplified structural analysis method developed in this article is applied in Boyabat Mehmet Kaya’s House. The building is analyzed in three different scenarios with the proposed structural analysis method. The compression stiffness of the T/C (Tension/Compression) friction isolator element is estimated in a different way, in the first scenario, there are no windows and door openings or deterioration in the adobe walls of the building. In the second scenario, there are door and window openings in the infill adobe walls. In the third analysis case, there are infill adobe walls where material deterioration is effective and damage is observed in certain parts of the building. In the calculations attained, the displacements at the specified points of the building indicate significant findings about the structural behavior of the building according to the compressive stiffness.
