Introduction A powerful earthquake has occurred in the southeastern region of Iran on the 26th December 2003. The magnitude of this event was reported to be 6.6 by USGS. In Bam Township, more than 40,000 was killed and more than 25,000 was injured. The buildings in these regions are highly vulnerable even to moderate earthquakes and most of them completely collapse when subjected to this earthquake. The population of Bam was estimated to be 100,000 at time of the earthquake in 2003. So a project of a new concept of construction is developed and proposed for this area. In this study, a seismic analysis of a modular bubble system of housing is presented. This type structure is designed by the architect Mr. Justus Dahinden. It consists of a medium tubular main unit as cylindrical structure, and number of cupola units or monolithic domes that are connected to the cylindrical main unit. This system is based on the shell concept. This concept is known as differentiated shell construction. It is well known that Shells structures gain their strength by virtue of the three dimensional development of their surfaces, with a resulting ability to carry external loads primarily through in-plane stresses rather bending. The internal force and stress distribution in shell structures, and especially for domes, is in general, spatial. Then a careful study must be preformed to catch the real behavior of such structures under lateral forces when bending will be a non-negligible effect. In general, relatively simple and idealized cases could readily be solved analytically. However, for more complex structures under combined loading paths, these are relegated to the domain of numerical analysis. The main difficulty in designing structures that are subjected to seismic action is to calculate the forces generated by this phenomenon. Some codes do not contain specifications for uncommon structures, such as domes. So, a three dimensional finite element model for seismic analysis is then required. A modal spectral analysis is performed on the basis of the SIA Swiss codes using ANSYS finite element package commercial software. Regarding seismic actions in Bam region, a specific seismological investigation was performed in order to update the seismic hazard according to the new data gained by the Bam earthquake. 2. Description of the Bubble system 2.1. Geometrical characteristics of the Bubble system The concept is a one story concrete tubular and concrete cupolas modular system for housing. The cupola units are jointed according to need around the tubular main unit. The connecting links between the tubular and cupola forms act as flexible joints. Then, the both tubular and domes units are studied separately. A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 2 The cupola structure is pierced by a skylight with two large openings at the lateral sides. One of these openings is used to have an access to the tubular unit. The tubular unit has also two large openings for domes connection. Both, tubular and domes units have no bearing walls. This allows the subdivision of the units into a number of partitions. The structures are assumed to be rigidly connected to the floor foundation. Then, dome and tubular units are considered to have continuous support. However, the structural behavior of domes is represented by the so-called arch action mechanism of the shell along the meridional direction. The tubular and cupola unit dimensions for structural modeling are given in the following figures.

Reinforced concrete shell structures 2.2.1. Design of reinforced concrete shells structures In concrete shell structures, reinforcement is required to resist tensile stresses, as well as to control shrinkage and thermal cracking. In shell structures, the reinforcement bars which resist the in-plane stress resultants should be placed in two or more directions and should ideally be oriented in the general directions of the principal tensile stresses, especially in regions of high tension. Reinforcement to resist stress couples should be placed near both faces even though moment reversal is not anticipated, since the bending may vary rapidly along the surface. Under seismic loading, the two layers are also include the membrane reinforcement. The provision of adequate clearance and cover may necessitate increasing the shell thickness. In the current structure, the thickness of the bubble system was taken to be equal to 20 cm. A special attention is required for edges members and opening frames that must be proportioned to resist the forces imparted by the shell. In practice, we can consider two regions in shell structures where the stresses are primarily inplane or membrane and regions where there is significant bending action. In the first case, direct tensile stresses should be resisted entirely by reinforcing steel in concrete shells. Regions with direct compressive stresses are generally controlled by stability requirements. In the second case, the moments or stress couples may resist by considering a concrete section with reinforcement near the surfaces to act as a wide flexural member. So, a suitable depth is required for facilitate the provision of ample reinforcing steel. 2.2.2. Non linear method of RC shell structures reinforcements design The values of internal stress resultants and distribution are necessary to perform the design of reinforcement. Under lateral seismic loading with gravity loads, reinforcement design in RC shell is more complex that the case with gravity loads only. For most of the proposed methods, the shell resultants are computed from elastic analysis of the structure, while the design of the bending and membrane reinforcing takes into account the inelastic behavior of steel and concrete. Stephan J. Medwadowski and al. [‘Design of reinforcement in concrete shells: a unified approach’, Jour. of the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures, IASS, pp. 41-50, Vol. 45 (2004) April n. 144] have proposed a unified approach for design of reinforcement in concrete shells. This method is applicable to shells subjected to both bending and membrane effects. Chang-shik Min has developed an iterative numerical computational algorithm to design shell element subjected to membrane and flexural forces is used ([‘Design and ultimate behavior of RC plates and shells’, Nuclear Eng. and Design 228, pp. 207-223, 2004]). This algorithm is based on equilibrium considerations for the limited state of the reinforcement and cracked concrete. In this method, the A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 6 reinforcement design is based on combined membrane forces and bending moments obtained from a finite element analysis. For these methods, the main ingredient to reinforcement designing are the principal in-plane stresses, in-plane forces or membrane stress resultants per unit length, bending stress resultants or normal shear forces per unit length and bending couples or moments per unit length. The direction of the principal in-plane stresses (angle between the principal direction and the local element axis) is of interest to determine the crack directions in the concrete. The reinforcement consists of two orthogonal layers placed at the top surface and the bottom surface, with appropriate covers. The capacity of the reinforcements will be designed according to the internal forces and principal stresses. The reinforcements are calculated per unit width of the shell. 3. Finite element model A three dimensional shell finite element with shear deformations was used to model the bubble system. The analysis of the bubble system material is based on the assumption that the shell material is linearly elastic, isotropic and homogeneous material (See Appendix 1). According to SIA262, the Young modulus of the concrete (concrete C30/37 type) is given by the following relation: E x = E y = E z = Ecm = k E 3 f cm ≅ 27000.0MPa (art. 3.1.2.3.3 SIA262) k E = 8000 is a factor for concrete Young modulus determination f cm = 38MPa , mean concrete compression strength (art. 3.1.2.3.5 SIA262) f ctm = 2,9MPa , mean concrete tension strength (art. 3.1.2.3.5 SIA262) The shear modulus is: Gxy = G yz = Gxz = G = Ecm = 0.4348 Ecm = 11740MPa 2(1 + ν ) The material Poisson’s ratio is: ν =ν xy =ν yz =ν xz =0,15 τ cd = 1,1MPa , concrete shear strength (art. 3.1.2.3.5 SIA262) In this study, we are interested to the following results: 1- displacements of the structures in Cartesian system of coordinate (nodal displacements): lateral displacements U X , U Z , vertical displacement U Y 2- internal forces per unit length (element resultants): Bending moments M x , M y and twisting moment M xy , Shear out-of-plane forces N x , N y and shear inplane force Txy , Membrane in-plane forces Tx , Ty A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 7 3- principal stresses (nodal stresses): σ 1 , σ 2 and σ 3 4- reaction forces at the structures base (nodal forces): FX , FY , FZ , M X , M Y , M Z 4. Strong motion values resulting from earthquake activity at the site of bam According to the conclusions and recommendations of the seismological investigation, on the basis of the new data of the Bam earthquake, in this study we have considered a peak ground acceleration equal to 0,45g with amplification 3 to 4 for the type of soil (See Appendix 2). This amplification gives a range of 1,2g to 1,8g for the maximal acceleration (PGA). The local soil corresponds to the class IIa at the best (Table 1).

The vertical acceleration is taken to be equal 0.7 times of the horizontal acceleration a gd according to the SIA261 considerations. 5. Response spectrum analysis with ANSYS of the BUBBLE system In the following, an elastic modal spectral analysis is performed with an elastic spectrum. In the elastic range, the behavior factor is the equal to unit (See Appendix 3). The stiffness reduction due to initial cracks was not considered in this study. 5.1. Modal analysis of the tubular unit The total mass of the tubular unit is equal to 43.93 tones. In the X-X direction, the most significant mode is mode 1. The corresponding effective mass is equal to 34.47 tones. This represents 78.46% of the total tubular unit mass. In the Y-Y direction, the most significant mode is mode 3. The corresponding effective mass is equal to 12.2 tones. This represents 27.77% of the total tubular unit mass. In the Z-Z direction, the most significant mode is mode 8. The corresponding effective mass is equal to 16.35 tones. This represents 37.21% of the total tubular unit mass (See Appendix 3).

Modal spectrum analysis of the tubular unit The modal spectral accelerations for the first modes among the most significant modes in the three principal directions are given in the following (See Appendix 3): a/ The most significant mode in the X-X direction is the mode 1 having a spectral acceleration equal to 9.2606 m/s2. b/ The most significant mode in the Y-Y direction is the mode 2 having a spectral acceleration equal to 5.3295 m/s2. c/ The most significant mode in the Z-Z direction is the mode 2 having a spectral acceleration equal to 7.6135 m/s2.

Modal spectrum analysis of the cupola unit The modal spectral accelerations for the first modes among the most significant modes in the three principal directions are given in the following (See Appendix 3): a/ The most significant mode in the X-X direction is the mode 3 having a spectral acceleration equal to 7.1886 m/s2. b/ The most significant mode in the Y-Y direction is the mode 2 having a spectral acceleration equal to 5.0424 m/s2. c/ The most significant mode in the Z-Z direction is the mode 1 having a spectral acceleration equal to 7.4385 m/s2. 6. Modal spectrum results combination A well-designed structure should be capable of equally resisting earthquake motions from all possible directions. For non-rectangular three dimensional structures, a simplification in the current code is lack of definition of the principal horizontal directions which produces the maximum stresses. In practice, we are allowed to select an arbitrary reference system. If a major principal direction for the structure was chosen, the minor principal direction will be, by definition, ninety degrees from the major axis (Fig. 12). So that, both tubular and dome unit are modeled such that x and z axes are the principal directions. Z or 90° ( ) SZ 90° S2 S1 θ SX SY X or 0° ( ) Fig. 12 Major and minor principal directions In general, a structure must resist an earthquake motion of magnitude S1 for all possible directions with angle of θ , and at the same point in time, resist earthquake motions of magnitude S2 at the orthogonal direction to the angle θ (Fig. 12). Three consecutive modal spectrum analyses were performed in the three principal directions x, y and z. In the both horizontal directions, we have used the same spectrum excitation defined in the paragraph (same PGA). However, in the vertical direction, a reduction of 70% in the PGA value is adopted according to the SIA seismic code. Finally, a static analysis under self A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 12 weight load due to gravity load by a applying a linear vertical acceleration equal to g=10 m/s2 was performed. The spectrum combination was performed trough 63 possible load cases. The load cases are defined to represent the response produced by 100% of the lateral input spectrum in one direction and respectively 30%, 70% and 100% in the other directions with negative and positive signs. The maximum positives and negatives values, respectively, are obtained for the following load cases: Case A: SW+Sy+Sx+Sz Case B: SW-Sy-Sx-Sz This result confirms the previous choice of the major and minor principal directions. But these load cases correspond to a conservative hypothesis. Moreover, for complex three dimensional structures the use of the 100/30, 100/40 or 100/70 percentage combination rules will produce member designs which are not equally resistant to earthquake motions from all possible directions and can also underestimate the design forces in certain regions which are relatively weak in a certain direction. Note: SW represents the self weight response; Sx, Sy and Sz are respectively modal responses in the three principal directions. 7. Results The most significant results are given in the Appendix 4. The maximum absolute values are: For tubular unit: Maximum absolute displacements Horizontal displacement in the X-direction : Ux Vertical displacement in the Y-direction : Uy Horizontal displacement in the Z-direction : Uz Table 2 U 1.40E-3 (m) 0.657E-3 (m) 0.0687E-3 (m) The X-direction is more flexible than Z-direction.

However, in-plane shear force can not be negligible. This confirms the membrane resisting mechanism in shell structures. The figures from 1 to 48 (Appendix 4) shows that the highly stressed zones are always confined at the opening frames.

The MZ value confirms the fact that X-X is the weakest direction. According to the plasticity condition for reinforced concrete members, the tensile stresses must be taken over by the reinforcement, while the compression ones by concrete. For concrete, we must check up if the tension and compression strength condition are satisfied (table 5). Maximum absolute principal stresses σ 7323 (kN/m2) > 2900 (kN/m2) 1550 (kN/m2) << 38000 (kN/m2) σ1 σ3 (tension) (compressive) Table 5 These tensile stresses represent a good parameter to draw the most probable cracking pattern in the units. In our case, reinforcements are in necessary, however, as expected, the shell structure exhibits a very good behavior under compression.

The figures from 49 to 64 (Appendix 4) show that the highly stressed zones are exclusively confined inside and near the opening frames. The dome unit exhibits a much better behavior in comparison with tubular unit. The dome unit presents a uniform distribution of stresses in the cupola region.

The MZ value confirms the fact that X-X is the weakest direction (table 8). The principal stresses developed in the dome unit are: Maximum absolute principal stresses Maximum absolute principal stress cupola region opening frame region σ σ1 1584 (kN/m2) < 2900 (kN/m2) 1969 (kN/m2) < 2900 (kN/m2) Maximum absolute principal stress cupola region opening frame region Maximum absolute principal stress cupola region opening frame region Table 9 σ2 604 (kNm2) 682.6 (kN/m2) σ3 699.4 (kN/m2) << 38000 (kN/m2) 684.2 (kN/m2) << 38000 (kN/m2) Both these tensile and compressive stresses are very low. As expected, Dome system can resist seismic actions without reinforcement. However, steel reinforcements are necessary to resist other effects as shrinkage and thermal cracking. The maximum drift in the tubular-dome connection is governed by the tubular deformation in the X-X direction and is equal to 1.497 mm. The dome is more rigid than tubular unit in the X-X direction. 8. Conclusion A new system of housing based on shell concept is presented. The system is developed for high seismic risk areas. A three dimensional finite element analysis was performed to assess the seismic performance of the concept subjected to earthquake actions. Both of the tubular and dome unit exhibit a very low period of vibration. Then, the type of soil has a less effect on the amplification of the seismic actions in the structures. Also, we can conclude after an examination of the modal spectrum response that: A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 16 1/ For the tubular unit, it exhibits a relatively uniform stresses distribution, however, a special attention is required for opening frame region. In these regions, highly membrane stresses are confined essentially in small zones. 2/ For Dome unit, it exhibits a uniform stresses distribution. Stress concentrations are observed exclusively in the opening frames. However, the dome unit exhibits a very good behavior with compression resisting mechanism. The tension stresses are found very low. In general, we have observed that the bubble system can carry the external seismic actions exclusively by membrane mechanism. Globally, both tubular and unit can be considered as free of bending actions. Membrane reinforcement is still sufficient. However, the bending and shear field were developed in some regions to satisfy the global equilibrium (monolithic behavior) and deformation requirements. The bending and shear field tend to be localized and confined is some regions to the vicinity of loading and geometrical discontinuities and deformation incompatibilities as opening connections, units base regions. However, the calculated internal forces are found to be not higher. Finally, a very satisfactory behavior under seismic actions is observed for the BUBBLE system of housing. We can conclude that the proposed system for housing can be recommended as a housing system for regions with a high seismicity. This is due to the most profound and efficient structural performance of shell concept. A three dimensional seismic analysis of a bubble system of housing 17 APPENDIX 1 SHELL FINITE ELEMENT MODEL A shell element is defined as a three dimensional solid element in the form of a surface with a thickness small compared to its other dimensions. In general, in a shell structure subjected to applied external loads, internal stresses and forces may develop. A three dimensional shell element with shear deformations is shown in the following figure. Nx Mx Tx M xy l r n σ y,top σ y,bot k Ny My M xy Txy Ty Txy j Middle-surface Txy i σ x,top σ x,bot Txy Top surface Bottom surface z y x Fig. 1 Shell finite element showing the components of internal force resultants and stress field (quadrilateral element - four nodes ‘ijkl’) For conveniency, we are working under Cartesian system. The so-called Mindlin finite element is used for the structural analysis. It is well known that shells structures carry the applied loads mostly-called membrane forces and shear mechanisms by comparison with so-called framed structures. In the shell structures under lateral actions, the bending field and shear field are crucial in the design of the reinforcements. The internal membrane (in-plane) forces consists of two membrane normal resultant forces Tx , Ty and a membrane in-plane shear force Txy per unit length such that: t/2 Tx = −t / 2 ∫σ t/2 x dz , Ty = −t / 2 ∫σ t/2 y dz , Txy = −t / 2 ∫σ xy dz where : t is the shell thickness at midpoint of element, computed normal to center plane) These forces are the resultant internal forces which lie inside the middle-surface of the shell. The membrane forces cause the stretching of the shell without producing any bending and / or local curvature changes. These forces are associated to the membrane and shear stresses which are assumed to be uniformly distributed through the thickness of the shell. The bending and membrane mechanism are decoupled. The internal bending and transverse shear forces are expressed as follows: t/2 Mx = −t / 2 ∫ zσ x dz , M y = t/2 −t / 2 ∫ zσ y dz , M xy = t/2 −t / 2 ∫ zσ xy dz , N x = t/2 −t / 2 ∫ σ xy dz , N y = t/2 −t / 2 ∫σ yz dz Where: σ x , σ y and σ z are direct stresses, σ xy , σ yz et σ xz are shear stresses. The thru-thickness stress ( σ z ) is set equal to the negative of the applied pressure at the surfaces of the shell elements, and linearly interpolated in between. The bending forces field consists of two bending moments M x , M y per unit length, a twisting moment M xy of the shell cross-sections per unit length, and two transverse shear forces N x , N y per unit length. The symbols on the left hand sides of the previous defined equations can be used to represent the stress resultants at the point in study obtained from elastic analysis of the shell elements. For linear elastic shells, the internal forces can be calculated by the following equations without integration procedure: Tx = t (σ x ,top + 4σ x ,mid + σ x ,bot ) 6 Txy = , Ty = t (σ y ,top + 4σ y ,mid + σ y ,bot ) 6 , t (σ xy ,top + 4σ xy ,mid + σ xy ,bot ) 6 Mx = t 2 (σ x ,top − σ x ,bot ) 12 ,My = t 2 (σ y ,top − σ y ,bot ) 12 , Ny = , M xy = t 2 (σ xy ,top − σ xy ,bot ) 12 6 Nx = t (σ xz ,top + 4σ xz ,mid + σ xz ,bot ) 6 t (σ yz ,top + 4σ yz ,mid + σ yz ,bot ) The component of stress normal to the shell surface (out-of-plane stress), σ z , is neglected in the classical shell finite element formulation. It is well-known for RC structures, that the reinforcing bars will be placed along the general directions of principal tensile stresses. In ANSYS, the principal stresses are calculated from the resolving of a cubic equation such that: σ x −σ0 σ xy σ xz σ xy σ y −σ0 σ yz = 0 σ xz σ yz σ z −σ0 The three principal stresses are called σ 1 , σ 2 and σ 3 . It is important to know that, in ANSYS, σ 1 is the most positive stress (tensile), σ 3 the most negative (compressive).

Introduction The aim of this report is to give an estimate of the expected strong motion in the city of Bam, to be taken into account for the reconstruction of houses destroyed during the earthquake of December 26, 2003. This earthquake allowed new information to be developed. We will first present a summary of the earthquake characteristics done by an Iranian team for preliminary report after the earthquake. In the second part, we will give our estimation of the strong motion values with justifications. II. Earthquake of the 26.12.2003 in Bam (Iran) (extract from[1]) The Bam earthquake occurred on 26th of December 2003, at 07:56:56 GMT (05:26:26 local time) near the city of Bam, which is located in the southeast of Iran (Eshghi and Zare, 2003). The coordinates of the epicentre of this earthquake have been determined by IIEES (IIEES, 2003) at 29.01N and 58.26E in 10km SW of the town of Bam , which is close to the coordinates reported by USGS (28.99N, 58.29 E (USGS, 2003)), but based on the surface evidences reported by Zare (Eshghi and Zare, 2003), the epicentre is located under the city of Bam. The Moment Magnitude of 6.5 for this earthquake (Mw) have been measured based on the preliminary evaluations and the focal depth is estimated to be 8km based on S-P evaluation on the records obtained from the main shock (Eshghi and Zare, 2003). The macro-seismic intensity of the earthquake is estimated to be I0=IX according to the EMS98 scale. The attenuation of the strong motion seems to be considerable as the surface evidences and damages decrease sharply at the direction perpendicular to the Bam fault (Figure 1). Although the focal mechanism of Bam earthquake was reported to be strike slip having a small vertical component (USGS, 2003), the strong motions recorded at the Bam station show a considerable vertical component. The maximum PGA for the horizontal components are 0.7 and 0.8g, and 1.01g for the vertical component (Corrected values; BHRC, 2003). The Bam earthquake has been accompanied by some geotechnical phenomena such as landslides, liquefaction and land subsidence. III. Estimation of strong motion values in Bam Hazard values The official hazard map of Iran elaborated by the BRHC (figure 1) considers Bam in the region with high hazard with a value of 0.3g. The highest value shown is 0.35g. The hazard map of Iran presented in the GSHAP study (figure2) shows a maximum acceleration (PGA) of the order 0.3g for a return S.Sellami Leinen souad@cluemail.com 1 05.04.2004 Estimation of strong motion values in Bam (IRAN) period of 500 years. In regard to the last event of December 2003 we could extend the nearby zone with higher hazard and take for Bam a value of 0.45g. The hazard level depicted on the map, 500years return period (exactly 475 years) corresponds to a hazard value, which has 90% probability of non exceedance during 50 years. This is the standard level chosen for ordinary constructions (private houses). This hazard value is computed for hard rock. To evaluate the hazard at a site we have to take into account the amplification due to the local geology, the site effect. Soil characteristics (amplification) The soils at Bam area are unconsolidated. From the satellite picture (figure3) and sites pictures (figure 4) shown on the report of the Bam earthquake (geology and geotectonics). A soil study has been done in the region north of Bam (table 1). The local soil corresponds to the class IIa at the best. An amplification of 3 to 4 times is possible. Figure 5 shows peaks of acceleration in the low frequencies 2-6 Hz and at 10 Hz. Response spectrum of the Bam earthquake From the December 26th earthquake, some information has been gathered. This earthquake, or the damages have a very strong directivity in the north-south direction for example as shown on the isoseismal map (figure 6). The Iranian strong motion network is well developed and many instruments are in the vicinity of Bam (table 2). One station was located in the Governor’s building in Bam [8.4]. This house has been damaged but the data were safe. The data showed a strong PGA of 1.02 vertical, 0.7 and 0,8g respectively in the directions NS and EO (figures 7 and 8). The Fourier spectrum and response spectrum for this earthquake are also available (figures 9, 10, 11 and12) Discussion If we consider the hazard value up to 0.45g and the amplification (3 to 4) for the type of soil, it gives a range of 1.2 to 1.8g for the maximal acceleration (PGA). We can compare this estimation to the last earthquake. This earthquake was strong with 6.5 Moment magnitude and rather shallow at 8km, which explains the high acceleration values. The accelerations recorded in Bam, 0.7 to 1.01g, are close to the accelerations expected during a longer period or a stronger earthquake 7 (figure 13). The directivity is typical of the type of faulting (strike slip) and the vicinity of the fault. The acceleration values at the epicentre are higher than the model for a magnitude of 6.5 (figure 13). We also note the large vertical movement respectively to the horizontal values at the epicentre, which is not the case anymore further away.

S.Sellami Leinen souad@cluemail.com 15 05.04.2004 APPENDIX 3 RESPONSE SPECTRUM ANALYSIS OF THE BUBBLE SYSTEM WITH ANSYS The type of the analysis performed is the response spectrum analysis. This method is used for the prediction of displacements and element forces in structures. The method involves the calculation of only the maximum values of the displacements and members in each mode using smooth design spectra. The analysis consists of a three dimensional mode shapes and natural frequencies of vibration calculation. These are the undamped free vibration response of the structure. The structure has constant stiffness and mass effects. The mass is taken distributed along the structures by a density. Then, the structure is excited by a spectrum of known directions and frequency components. A single-point response spectrum method based on an acceleration spectrum introduced as a known function is used and implemented on ANSYS as a MACRO SCRIPT function. The selected modal analysis method is FULL SUBSPACE. This method did not require a set of master degrees of freedom, and it gives more accurate answers with the comparison with reduced method for eigenvalues calculation. But, it takes somewhat longer to solve. In this method a number of modes is considered for the structural response calculation. For each principal direction, the square-root-of-sum-ofthe-squares (SRSS) modes combination method is used for the purpose of structural design. This approach assumes that all the maximum modal values are statistically independent. The significant modes are determined, in ANSYS, such that mode coefficients (MCOEF) for all modes are compared with the most significant mode having the maximum mode coefficient (MCOEFmax). So that, a significant factor for combining modes (SIGNIF) is defined and taken equal to 0,5% in this study. For a given mode i, having a mode coefficient MCOEFi, if SIGNIF>MCOEFi/MCOEFmax, then the current mode will be not considered as significant, and will be ignored in the global structural response (in the SRSS Mode Combination). The significant modes for both structures are given in tables and. Another parameter is the modal participation factor, ‘PFACT’ that is used for the modal coefficient determination. This parameter is calculated by: PFACT = With: aij is the N2 mode shape matrix, mi the mass matrix.
