Equivalent Seismic Load

Glossary Term

Equivalent seismic loads are required for a dynamic analysis of structures or for an earthquake simulation.

The equivalent seismic loads are a result of a multimodal response spectrum analysis in RF-/DYNAM Pro. The resulting load cases and result combinations can be summarised according to the superposition principle and used for the dynamic analysis of a structure.
