Seismic design of buildings - How can I use result storeys ?
Storeys is a widely used concept, which allows to accurately analyse each floor as a mass linked to adjacent floors by walls and columns.
Storeys are therefor ideal to perform a seismic design. Storey results give a summarised view of results in each storey.
Displacements, accelerations, internal forces and resultant forces may be displayed per storey, either as bulk values for each storey, or as detailed results for each wall and column.
Storeys may also be used for fast determination of load paths.
