Hello everybody!!!

I have a question related to a column type seismic analysis.
I performed a FEA calculation, spectrum response analysis. I would like to compare these results with analytical calculation based on ASCE 07. I need to compare elastic response parameters (base shear, overturning at the base). In ABAQUS I only have nodal reaction forces R1, R2, R3, my first problem is where is the moment? and the second one is how can I get the total base shear?

Thank you very much for your time. Regards
