What is it about?

Closed-form expressions to assess different building typologies (framed, walled, etc) are found; considering explicitly for stiffness variation along height.

Why is it important?

It allows for quick assessment of large building portfolios, which is important for earthquake risk assessment

Would love to apply it for seismic risk assessments involving damage to non-structural components.
