This study describes a simple method to estimate the maximum response in the seismic response analysis of multi-input nonlinear system. There are many studies on the response analysis of a system having nonlinear properties, such as elasto-plastic characteristic, but they are intended for the one input system because they cannot be applied to multi-input system. On the other hand, a simple method for estimating the multi-input response analysis can also be proposed, which is applied to a linear system, but they cannot be applied to a nonlinear system. However, the importance of seismic design in consideration of both nonlinear and multi-input problems has been increasing in recent years. Therefore, we propose a simple method for estimating the maximum response of multi-input system with elasto-plastic characteristic in the present study.
