The research performed during the PhD and presented in this thesis, allowed to make judgments on pushover analysis method about its application in evaluating the correct structural seismic response. In this sense, the extensive critical review of existing pushover procedures (illustrated in chapter 1) outlined their major issues related to assumptions and to hypothesis made in the application of the method. Therefore, with the purpose of evaluate the effectiveness of pushover procedures, a wide numerical investigation have been performed. In particular the attention has been focused on the structural irregularity on elevation, on the choice of the load vector and on its updating criteria. In the study eight pushover procedures have been considered, of which four are conventional type, one is multi-modal, and three are adaptive. The evaluation of their effectiveness in the identification of the correct dynamic structural response, has been done by performing several dynamic and static non-linear analysis on eight RC frames, characterized by different proprieties in terms of regularity in elevation. The comparisons of static and dynamic results have then permitted to evaluate the examined pushover procedures and to identify the expected margin of error by using each of them. Both on base shear-top displacement curves and on considered storey parameters, the best agreement with the dynamic response has been noticed on Multi-Modal Pushover procedure. Therefore the attention has been focused on Displacement-based Adative Pushover, coming to define for it an improvement strategy, and on modal combination rules, advancing an innovative method based on a quadratic combination of the modal shapes (QMC). This latter has been implemented in a conventional pushover procedure, whose results have been compared with those obtained by other multi-modal procedures. The development of research on pushover analysis is very important because the objective is to come to the definition of a simple, effective and reliable analysis method, indispensable tool in the seismic evaluation of new or existing structures.
