AD.2006.3.1 Pushover Analysis

This is a set of procedures to implement a Pushover Analysis as defined in the document FEMA 356:2000.

STAAD Pushover analysis in STAAD is a static, non-linear procedure in accordance with FEMA 356 specification. Basically, in this method, the magnitude of the lateral push load is increased progressively according to a predefined loading pattern until either loading or the deflection reaches the described level.

Please refer to M. Pushover Loads for details on using this feature.

Note: Refer to the example files ExampPush01.std, ExampPush02.std, ExampPush03.std, and ExampPush04.std in the folder C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition\Samples\Pushover\.
