About the pushover analysis

Dear Michael Valley

<It is possible to reflect some of the higher mode response and

yield states.  The goal here is to monotonically increase the total
shear applied but to capture incremental changes in the possible
dynamic response>

I'm interested in the change of lateral forces distribution by mode shapes
during pushover analysis.
Would you explain the process in more detail ?
Please let me know whether those process is used in practical
engineering.not academic.

Thanks in advance
