Abstract: An approach to evaluate the torsional effect has been presented, using the time-history method of analysis. This approach considers the effect of building size, wave propagation velocity, and the dynamic characteristics of the structure. Based on wave-propagation consideration, the ground motion is treated to produce translational and torsional input time-history motions for which a conventional seismic model can be analyzed.
