Damped Earthquake Response of Non-symmetric Multi-storey Structures

The analysis of the damped and undamped earthquake response of non-symmetric multi-storey structures is presented, with consideration of the foundation mass and partial restraint of the structure in the subgrade. The analysis is based on the continuous connection method using the normal modes of the structure. Proportional and constant damping are considered. E. Mendelson and M. Baruch
