Earthquake Response of Non-symmetric Multi-storey Structures

The analysis of the elastic earthquake respmse of non-symmetric multi-storey structures is presented, with consideration of the partial restraint of the structure in the subgrade. The analysis is based on the continuous connection method, using the normal modes of the structure. Several numerical examples represent the influence of the structure's eccentricity and the subgrade's rigidity on the response. E. Mendelson and M. Baruch
