Damped Motion of Shear Buildings

  • Mario Paz


In the previous chapters, we determined the natural frequencies and modal shapes for undamped structures when modeled as shear buildings. We also determined the response of these structures using the modal superposition method. In this method, as we have seen, the differential equations of motion are uncoupled by means of a transformation of coordinates which incorporates the orthogonality property of the modal shapes.
