The Multistory Shear Building

  • Mario Paz


In Part I we analyzed and obtained the dynamic response for structures modeled as a single degree-of-freedom system. Only if the structure can assume a unique shape during its motion will the single degree model provide the exact dynamic response. Otherwise, when the structure takes more than one possible shape during motion, the solution obtained from a single degree model will be an approximation to the true dynamic behavior.
