ETABS TIPS
*****
1. Analysis options :
ETABS has many analysis option which includes
- P delta analysis .
- Dynamic analysis
- Eigen vectors analysis.
- Ritz vectors analysis.
- Linear analysis.
- Non linear analysis.
- Static Non linear analysis.
- Construction sequence analysis.
2. Locking and unlocking the model :
From Main menu Option Lock model / unlock
Check model :
Before running analysis use check model to ensure that objects do not
overlap and that objects are connected.
From Main menu Analysis Check model ---3. Editing the model :
Edit edit grid data.
edit storey data.
edit reference plane.
edit reference line.
Add model from template (2D frame or 3D frame).

merge areas.
Joint lines/ Joining selected beams or selected columns.
4. Text/ Graphical output :
From Main menu Design Concrete frame design Display design
info.
To view other Tables :
From Main menu Display Show Tables Select required boxes.
Exporting the files :
From Main menu File Export Save model as etabs.e2k text file
(like a Staad editor file )
We can also export to SAP or SAFE or Excell data base or .dxf file.
Importing the file :
or Struds.
Options/Preferences:
From Main menu Option Preferences Concrete frame design
(Select code and other parameters)
- Shear wall design
- Reinforcement/bar sizes (add new dias or modify existing)
Auto saving the model :
From Main menu Option Auto save model set time Ok.
- Envelope of combinations.
To draw Column or beam to required location :
There is no move command here. Set snap grid on and draw column or
beam any where we want.

Construction sequence analysis.

Push over analysis.
Shear wall design.
Live load reduction for upper floors.
Earthquake forces can be applied in anu angle (not just X and Y
alone)
Modeling tapered concrete beams.
Floor load for irregular panels, that is easy to do.
Design of columns with cross section of any arbitary shape (including
Y, L, +)
Diaphragm action.
Automatic lumping of masses for earthquake .
Choice of Eigen or Ritz vector for Response spectrum analysis.
Auto calculation of beam reinforcements based on moments at
column face, rather than at column centre line and column
reinforcements based on moments at beam soffit, rather than at
beam centre line.
Rigid Panel zone modifier.
Ductile detailing as per IS 13920.
Additional software for foundation design especially mat (SAFE
software).
Not support for sloping roofs.
ETABS uses matrix method of structural analysis.

(Staad also uses Matrix method of structural analysis & FEA for
plates.
o 3D rendering in ETABS:
Go to view menu Select set building view options. In first column
button, check Extrusion and object fill.
ETABS can not generate floor loads. You have to model slabs as plate
element & mesh it and apply floor loads on it.
