[GEN/Pushover]Is Pushover Analysis Supported for Vertical Loading Conditions?

Question

Is it possible to perform a Pushover analysis for vertical loading conditions?

 

Answer

Generally Pushover analysis is conducted for lateral seismic loads. It is not recommended for vertical loading conditions.

However, if you wish to perform Pushover analysis for vertical loading conditions in special cases, you can define the load direction as DZ when defining the Pushover Load Case.
You can then review the analysis results using the Pushover Curve/Plot Type/Load Factor vs. Displacement, which will allow you to examine the Pushover Curve for vertical loading.
