||Computer program for linear and nonlinear analysis of tallbuildings subjected to horizontal loading
||In Slovenia, as in many other countries where earthquake or wind loading can be excessive,the stiffness of a tall building is governed by horizontal loading. The paper presents acomputer program for linear (static and dynamic) and for nonlinear push-over analysis ofsymmetric and asymmetric building structures subjected to horizontal loads (such as wind orearthquake loads). The paper briefly describes the used mathematical model and the analysismethod for nonlinear static analysis. As an example, the program is used for the nonlinearpushover analysis of several (symmetric and asymmetric) variants of four-storey reinforced-concrete building structure consisted of frames and walls. The results, that are presented in aform of normalized charts, give a valuable information about the nonlinear behavior of differentstructure variants.
