This paper proposes an application of already established higher-order models and, namely, investigates the free vibration analysis of civil engineering structures subjected to nonstructural masses. The refined one-dimensional theories adopted are based on the Carrera unified formulation (CUF). The stiffness and mass matrices are obtained by means of the principle of virtual displacements in conjunction with the finite element method (FEM). According to CUF, in fact, their formulation is performed in terms of fundamental nuclei, which depend neither on the adopted class of beam theory nor on the FEM approximation along the axis. In order to account for nonstructural localised masses, the fundamental nucleus of the mass matrix has been opportunely modified. In this work, Lagrange polynomials have been employed in the framework of CUF to develop pure translational displacement- based refined beam models. The models obtained using this approach are referred, in the literature, to as component wise (CW), which allows to model each structural component as a 1D element. The free vibration analysis has been carried out for different cases of nonstructural mass distribution in typical civil buildings. The results obtained are compared with classical Solid/Shell FEM solutions from the commercial code MSC Nastran. The capabilities of the CW models are demonstrated, since this formulation is able to replicate the 3D solid results with enhanced performances in terms of computational efforts. Moreover, the importance of taking into account the correct distribution of the nonstructural masses is shown to be of fundamental importance in vibration analysis of civil buildings.
