Linear Acceleration MethodNewmark’s Method
The numeric computation procedure for the solution of the equation of motion of a single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system subjected to any type of ground acceleration is exhaustively presented. The followed numeric approach is the Linear Acceleration Method, i.e. Newmark’s Method with and . The approach allows considering any time of multilinear elasto-plastic behavior. It also allows computing the Complete Hysteretic Curve of the SDOF system.
