Re: Nonlinear Pushover Analysis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As this relates to existing buildings, I would consult ASCE 41/FEMA 356, as well as ATC 40.  Also check out FEMA 440, which compares the methods presented in ATC 40 and ASCE 41, and gives further recommendations.
Another resource is California's Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (MOTEMS), which covers non-linear analysis for piers and wharves.  This was the seismic design standard required by the DOD as of 2005 in UFC 4-152-01 for piers and wharves located in IBC seismic design categories D, E, and F.

Is it reliable to use nonlinear pushover analysis? Does it have articles or codes to use as parameters?
