In this chapter, we present an overview of the E-Simulator for application to seismic response analysis of building structures. Accuracy and computational performance of simulation using the E-Simulator are discussed through examples of seismic response analysis of a four-story steel frame, buckling analysis of a column, and simulations of static cyclic responses of a composite beam and an exterior wall. Results of seismic response analysis with fixed base as well as soil-structure interaction analysis are presented for a high-rise building frame. Computational performance using the K computer is also discussed.
