Windas Workstation is a sophisticated structural engineering software renowned for its proficiency in handling an earthquake load. It utilizes response spectrum analysis to calculate the seismic loads exerted on a structure based on the provided seismic data. Windas Workstation seamlessly automates the integration of seismic loads into the structural analysis process, requiring only the input of spectral acceleration values corresponding to each natural frequency/mode shape.
Windas Workstation excels in the determination of all essential parameters essential for seismic load calculation, including modal participation factors and mass participation factors. Modal participation factor is a practical metric that quantifies the contribution of each mode shape to the structural response when subjected to external forces. Concurrently, mass participation factors represent the significance of a vibration mode, assisting in determining the number of mode shapes to incorporate.
