Abstract

This paper presents a structural analysis scheme for multistory buildings. In this analysis the boundary element method (BEM) is used to derive the stiffness. Such a matrix is coupled with the vertical skeletal elements using the traditional assembly procedures. Nodal displacements and end-forces are then computed, hence, post-processing is done for frame and floor elements. The results are compared against results of traditional finite element analysis.
