When observing the consequences of earthquakes, it is accepted that earthquakes are one of the most dangerous natural disasters in the world. Therefore, special engineering methods are used to explore and analyze the effects of earthquakes on structures and to design earthquake resistant structures accordingly. In applying these methods, it is important to investigate the irregularities in the carrier system correctly. There are six irregularities in the Turkish Building Earthquake Code (TBDY-2018), one of the most important of which is A1 Torsional Irregularity [TBDY 2018]. In this article, considering TBDY 2018, the dynamic behaviour of structures with different ratios of torsional irregularity in multi-storey steel structures is examined. In a 10-storey steel structure with the same purpose and size, four type models were produced using the central inverted V cross member and changing the cross positions. The Equivalent Seismic Load Method is used in the analysis. Structural analyzes were performed with the "ETABS" finite element program. As a result of these studies; The displacements obtained from the structural analysis of 4 models with different torsional irregularity coefficients due to the cross member placement in various places in 4 buildings with the same dimensions were calculated by the Equivalent Seismic Load method.
