This note describes a simplified method to evaluate the dynamic response of a building, including the wave propagation effects of ground motion. This method is based on a computer code that can calculate the dynamic response of buildings subjected to multisupport excitation given impedance data calculated by other methods. Only linear systems and symmetrical structure are considered.
