The response of nonlinear hysteretic multistory buildings to random strong motion earthquakes is investigated by Monte Carlo method using a hybrid computer scheme. Digitally produced artificial earthquakes are applied to several different analog models of multistory structures and the corresponding responses are studied statistically. The effects of natural period, hysteretic model, and earthquake intensity are discussed.
