Abstract: The wide multistory building having a set of identical parallel transverse frames and a set of identical floors is an example of a separable structure. Certain problems of such structures can be solved by combining solutions for a typical frame and a typical floor. Thus, the eigenvalues and two-dimensional eigenvectors for a separable building with mass concentrated at the joints can be found by calculating the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a typical frame and a typical floor. A procedure for computing all of the frequencies of transverse vibration and all of the associated modes for such a building is presented along with the mathematical theory on which it is based.
