What does the warning message “lost 6.4 digits of accuracy” mean? ETABS equation solutions are performed in double precision arithmetic, which allows for 15 significant figures. If you have global or local instability (e.g., a node that is not restrained),…

A very informative paper about shear reversal or Back stay effects in Tall buildings. Shear Reversals in Walls

Vertical Line Objects. For vertical line objects the local axes have the following default orientation: Local axis 1 is along the line object. The positive local 1 axis is in the same direction as the positive global Z-axis, upward. Local…
