A simplified procedure, which is a modification of the shear beam model, has been developed and applied to treat the seismic analysis of asymmetric buildings. This three dimensional procedure accounts for torsional coupling and the bending rotations at beam-column junctions and it can be used with a personal computer to give fast and reasonably accurate results, which compare well with those from comprehensive finite element analysis. This procedure will therefore be useful for preliminary seismic analysis and design of buildings. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
