This paper evaluates factors that may influence slab vibration and/or induce a horizontal–vertical (H-V) coupled response of buildings with mass irregularities. Responses are investigated through computational simulation of a hypothetical three-story building with base isolation and conventionally configured. Induced mass eccentricities are observed to influence, in an unpredictable way, the vertical slab acceleration and the H-V coupled response, which is identified through modal analysis and floor spectral analysis. The implications of vertical slab vibrations and H-V coupling behavior on the design forces for nonstructural components and systems (NCSs) are evaluated, and modifications are proposed for consideration.
The findings in this study are the ultimate outcome of work sponsored by the National Science Foundation through Grant No. CMMI-1113275.
