Two novel methods namely the Dominant Modes method and the All Modes method to predict the seismic-pushover load for the jacket-type structures are presented. Both of these methods are based on the linear superposition of the modal reactions. As a preliminary evaluation, the linear elastic response of a jacket structure subjected to seismic-pushover loads is compared with that obtained from the response spectrum analysis. Furthermore, the nonlinear inelastic behavior obtained from the seismic-pushover analysis is compared with that obtained from the nonlinear time-history analysis, for a portal frame subjected to El Centro earthquake motion. When more than one mode is dominant in an excitation direction, both the linear elastic and the nonlinear inelastic responses obtained using the loads generated from the All Modes method are representative of the reference solutions.
