۳-D Pushover Analysis for Damage Assessment of Buildings
A.S. Moghadam and W.K. Tso

The Pushover procedure is extended for seismic damage assessment of asymmetrical buildings. By mean of an example, it is shown that the accuracy of the proposed 3-D pushover analysis is similar to those applied to planar structures. The procedure is found to be more successful in estimating the global response parameters such as interstorey drifts than local damage indicators such as beam or column ductility demands.
