Abstract:   (15151 Views)
In recent years some multi-mode pushover procedures taking into account higher mode effects, have been proposed. The responses of considered modes are combined by the quadratic combination rules, while using the elastic modal combination rules in the inelastic phases is not valid. Here, an optimum weighted mode combination method for nonlinear static analysis is presented. Genetic algorithm is used for optimization of the modal weight. The proposed procedure is applied for a sample building. The results show that the resulted response from the proposed method has minimal error in comparison with the response of the nonlinear time history analysis.
