Title: FW: Seismic Overturning & Response Spectrum Analysis
I think you are on the right track. Because your dynamic analysis accounts for a different force distribution over the height of the structure than the triangular distribution assumed by the static procedure, your overturning moment will naturally be different as well. Therefore, it makes sense that while in your case your total base shear is not much different using the two procedures, the overturning moment may be quite a bit less.
