Computer program for linear and nonlinear analysis of tall buildings subjected to horizontal loading

Abstract:In Slovenia, as in many other countries where earthquake or wind loading can be excessive, the stiffness of a tall building is governed by horizontal loading. The paper presents a computer program for linear (static and dynamic) and for nonlinear push-over analysis of symmetric and asymmetric building structures subjected to horizontal loads (such as wind or earthquake loads). The paper briefly describes the used mathematical model and the analysis method for nonlinear static analysis. As an example, the program is used for the nonlinear pushover analysis of several (symmetric and asymmetric) variants of four-storey reinforced- concrete building structure consisted of frames and walls. The results, that are presented in a form of normalized charts, give a valuable information about the nonlinear behavior of different structure variants.
