G.17.4 Pushover Analysis

Pushover analysis is a static, nonlinear procedure using simplified nonlinear technique to estimate seismic structural deformations. It is an incremental static analysis used to determine the force-displacement relationship, or the capacity curve, for a structure or structural element.

In STAAD.Pro, the basis for this analysis is the information published in the documents FEMA 356 : 2000 and ATC 40.
