*n case of using signed +uadratic
combinations it will be necessary to
set main modes for each of
directions% ,sually the main
criterion to select such modes is
their contribution to participation
mass for given direction - this
contribution can be checked in

.ass matri/ types:
*f you use lumped masses then mass is
1assigned1 to nodes e/isting in the structure%
The larger number of the intermediate nodes
along a beam you create the closer to the
reality you are and it increases the precision of
the solution% *f you use the consistent mass
matri/ the mass is distributed along a bar
element rather than assigned to the nodes%

Active mass direction:
2ou may need to deselect a direction when
performing the seismic analysis% *f you deselect
the mass in the 3 direction4 for the modal
analysis that precedes the seismic case4 it
eliminates local vertical vibration modes for
floor slabs% *n the seismic analysis for such
model you will consider only transversal
vibrations%

.ass eccentricities:
The tensional effect is taken into account by
adding mass eccentricity% 2ou can do this as
either modal analysis parameters &e/act
method( or seismic analysis parameters
