In buildings with basements where different R and D coefficients are used in the upper and lower sections, the earthquake calculation is made by considering the Modal Calculation Methods as mentioned in 4.3.6.2 . For each nth vibration mode and taking the relevant natural vibration period T n into consideration , the procedures in Equation (4.4) , Equation (4.5) and Equation (4.6) are applied.

Here , instead of the base shear ratio in Eq. (4.5b) , the ratio of the modal effective masses corresponding to these shear forces in the same mode mentioned in TBDY Section 4B.1.4 is used. According to TBDY Section 4B.1.4 for the (X) earthquake direction, the modal contribution factor Γ n (X) for the nth vibration mode and the base shear force modal effective mass of the building in the x-axis direction m txn (X) Eq. (4B) .1) .

When the option "Calculation method with single load case" is selected in rigid basement buildings with R bottom <R top , ν n, top (X) = 0 assumption is made according to 4.3.6.2 (b) . In this case, the following simplifications are applied in the nth mode for the subsection and D sub = 1.5 for the basements .

The "Calculation method with single loading status" option is selected from the "Analysis Settings" command as shown in the picture below.
