- The structural analysis of a high-rise building subject to a theoretically produced earthquake is presented. The analysis has been performed with the building situated at three different locations relative to the earthquake epicenter. The building has also been excited using the 1940 El Centro earthquake record. The use of theoretical earthquake models provides local seismic loading levels for use in structural design. Results have been obtained using spectral analysis, modal superposition, and time-stepping.
