There has been a growth in extensive research aimed at examining the effects of seismic events on the performance of a structure. Buildings have a tendency to exhibit inelastic deformation in during seismic activities and post-elastic behavior. Hence, better insights of the performance of structure can be obtained by examining its post-elastic behavior. Non-linear static analysis (also known as Pushover Analysis) is an improved and effective modern way of examining structural performance in the event of potential seismic impact. Such an approach involves horizontally pushing a structure using a predetermined loading pattern which constantly increases over time thereby making it possible to determine the collapse conditions, associated lateral displacement and total applied shear force. It offers a sound Perception of Structural Performance against earthquake as well as damages suffered. Thus, pushover analysis makes it feasible to ascertain the responsive behavior of buildings in non-linear zones which is not catered for by conventional elastic designs.
