Generally, Etabs is used for the analysis and design of concrete & steel frames.
Etabs is a Structural analysis & design softwares used by Civil Engineers. It can be used to design Civil Engineering structures mainly Buildings.Etabs is highly efficient analysis & design program devoloped especially for building systems.It is loaded with an Integrated system with an ability to handle the largest and most complex building models and configurations.
MODULE 1: Modelling of Frame
Understanding the Architect plan
Locating the columns and Beam Framing for the given Architect Plan
Working with grids
Defining and assigning the material properties, Cross section dimensions of skeletal elements like beams and columns
Defining and assigning the spatial elements like slabs and walls
Concept of Moment release and assigning the moment releases
Assigning Boundary conditions to Frame at base level.
MODULE 2: LOADS
Defining load cases (Gravity loads, Wind loads and Seismic loads)
Assigning the loads to the model
Defining the load combinations as per IS Codal provisions
MODULE 3: ANALYSIS
To check displacements for serviceability load conditions
To check stress in terms of Bending moments, Shear forces, Axial loads, Twisting moments
Tabulated results for Internal Force resultants for Gravity loads, wind loads and Seismic loads
Graphical story forces, Base shear and Story drift for Wind and Seismic loads
Manual calculations for Base shear by using IS 1893-2002/16
MODULE 4 : DESIGN
Design of structural members of beams, columns will be performed for applied Gravity and Lateral loads.
