ETABS

ETABS, an engineering software tool for analysis and design of multi-storey buildings, skyscrapers and various construction projects.  Various Modelling tools, templates, code-based load prescriptions, analysis and solution techniques coordinate with a grid based geometry unique to this class of structure. ETABS are used to evaluate various basic or advanced systems under static or dynamic conditions. Interoperability with a series of design and documentation platforms makes ETABS a coordinated and productive tool for designs which range from simple 2D frames to elaborate modern high-rises.

Prerequisites: –
  • Can access computer system and make use of internet to perform search over Google.

 

Need to Prepare?
  • Prior programming experience is not required. Basic knowledge of Civil Engineering with design concepts will be appreciated.

 

Tools Expected: –
  • Windows OS based PC, Smart phone with Internet, Notebook and Pen

 

Tools Used (for the session): –
  • Sample Codes, Software, PPTs, Reference Materials

 

Concepts:-

Design Concepts, Modelling, Loading, Design Methods and Techniques, Analysis Processes etc.

 

Summary:-

This workshop will address about the fundamental to ETABS modeling and its generalization that multi-story buildings typically consist of identical or similar floor plans that repeat in the vertical direction.

 

Highlights & Practical Experiences:-
  • Templates for global-system and local-element modelling
  • Customized section geometry and constitutive behaviour
  • Grouping of frame and shell objects
  • Link assignment for modelling isolators, dampers, and other advanced seismic systems
  • Nonlinear hinge specification
  • Automatic meshing with manual options
  • Editing and assignment features for plan, elevation, and 3D views
