274 +These three methods really cover two basic concepts:
275 +
276 +* Lateral force method, where the base shear force can be distributed in two ways (Static linear/mode shape),
277 +* Modal response spectrum analysis (Modal analysis).
278 +
279 +=== (% style="font-size:18px" %)Lateral force method(%%) ===
280 +
281 +In some codes called equivalent static analysis.EC8 as well NS3491-12 uses this method. The user may not use this method in other codes.
282 +
283 +This method can be used to calculate the seismic effect in horizontal plan, x' and/or y' direction. The main point of this method is to calculate base shear force taking into account the base vibration period and design spectrum in x' or y' direction which is distributed into those nodes of the structure where there are nodal masses. The base shear force formula is taken from EC8 4.3.3.2.2(1)P:
284 +
285 +(% class="mark" %)F,,b,, = S,,d,,(T,,1,,) m λ
286 +
287 +(((
288 +(% style="text-align: justify;" %)
289 +where:
290 +
291 +* S,,d,,(T,,1,,) is the value of design spectrum at T1 (means the acceleration of the structure),
292 +* T1 is the fundamental period of vibration of the building for lateral motion in the direction considered,
293 +* m is the total mass of the building, above the foundation or above the top of a rigid basement. Remark: the FEM-Design always ta- kes into account the total mass of the structure including the base- ment,
294 +* λ is the correction factor, the value of which is equal to: 0,85 if
295 +* T^^1^^ ≤ 2 TC and the building has more than two storeys, or λ = 1,0 otherwise.
296 +)))
297 +
298 +(% style="text-align: justify;" %)
299 +From this formula it can be seen that the base shear force is nothing else than the total seismic force of inertia (from second Newton’s law) which acts between the ground and the structure.

304 +Remarks for NS3491-12:
305 +
306 +* There is no λ (λ = 1,0).
307 +* According to the code, if S,,d,,(T,,1,,) ≤ 0,5 m/s2, seismic analysis can be suspended, so when the above condition is fulfilled, it is not necessary to incorporate seismic loads in the design.

311 +Distribution of the base shear force can occur in two ways which is described below.

313 +
314 +**a. Linear distribution of horizontal seismic forces (Static, linear shape)**
315 +
316 +In this method the distribution of base shear force happens according to a simplified fundamental mode shape which is approximated by horizontal displacements that increased linearly along the height (see EC8 4.3.3.2.3(3)). The seismic action effects shall be determined by applying to the x' or y' direction. The horizontal forces are:
