Abstract
Recent researches have proven the importance of considering the seismic directionality effect. The performance of buildings subjected to earthquakes depends on its orientation respect to the seismic actions applied. This type of calculation is computed using the nonlinear dynamic analysis (NLDA) and rotating the acceleration horizontal components onto all non-redundant angles, which entails a high computational cost. This paper presents an alternative approach to consider the directionality effe...
