# Pushover analysis

Type of analyses in seismic enviroment
• • • • Lateral Force Method Modal Response Spectrum Non-linear Pushover Linear - Nonlinear Time History Analysis LINEAR STATIC DYNAMIC Modal analysis Time history analysis NON-LINEAR Pushover analysis Time history analysis

calculates the peak values of internal forces and displacements (for a specified ag acceleration and response spectrum) Time history analysis: .Pushover analysis Differences: Modal analysis: .calculates the actual internal forces and displacement at each time ti (for a specified acceleration-time diagram) Pushover analysis: . gives information abot the structure behavior at the predefined performance level .calculates the nonlinear force-displacement relationship of the structure.

Constant vertical loads .monotonicaly incrased horizontal load pattern until reach the target displacement Analysis: displacement controlled method (predefined target displacement) p Fi F3 F2 F1 p p p mi m3 m2 m1 .Push over analysis Nonlinear (geometrical and material) static analysis .

5) k = 2 (T 1 <= 2.5) Calculated from the storey shears by elastic response spectrum analysis EC8 Sj = m j Sj = m j ⋅ φ j1 ∑ (m j ⋅ φ j1 ) .Push over analysis Vertical distribution of the lateral load pattern Distribution mode Fundamental Equivalent SRSS Uniform Modal (Φj is from the fundamental period) (useful if the 75% of total mass participates) EC8 Method S j = m j ⋅ φ j1 Sj = m j ⋅ hk j k = 1 (T1 <= 0.
