In the proposed methodology, a load pattern is applied in a non-adaptive fashion to obtain the seismic response of two-dimensional steel moment resisting frames. The proposed methodology is based on the structural dynamics theory and consists of a single run nonlinear analysis. This invariant load pattern is formulated by considering higher mode effects with the use of an effective modal mass contribution factor. Also, part of the proposed procedure, a corrective factor is employed to adjust the displacements obtained from the nonlinear analysis ensuring that the drift values obtained from the corrected displacements are adequate. The procedure allows the analysis of the structural response, i.e, story displacement and story drifts. To evaluate the methodology a nine-story steel moment frame is analyzed. Material and geometric non linearities are considered for all the cases. The results are compared with the ones obtained by the Nonlinear time history analysis.
