Abstract

An exact description of the complex physical effects and processes which occur in buildings during dynamic loading is virtually impossible. It is therefore important to choose a physical model representing a simplified structure which on one hand describes behaviour of a real building and on the other can be treated by the known mathematical apparatus.
