I have generated my static base shear in Etabs with "Time period Ct(ft)Programm calculated" and the result are different base shears in x- and y-direction. Befor that I have used "Time period Method A" and the result were same base shear values for both direction. Does anybody know why I get differt results for my base shear and which is the correct way of generating the base shear?
