The objective of this thesis is to develop computer programs for the dynamic analysis of structures. For a shear building two computer programs were developed: (1) Dynamic Analysis of a Shear Building within the Elastic Range and (2) the Dynamic Analysis of a Shear Building with Elasto-Plastic Behavior. Parallel to this computer work a study was performed to investigate the error due to static condensation applied to dynamic problems. In the development of computer programs the stiffness method and the consistent mass matrix were used; and viscous damping was assumed.
