I am Nikos, a civil engineer student at National Technincal University of Athens.
For my diploma thesis, I have chosen to do a full scale analysis and design of a reinforced concrete building.
I am thinking of ETABS, because it is the most well documented software in the market, with the most examples. To my disappointment, I haven’t found a single FEA program to support semi-automatic detailing according to the required reinforcement.
ETABS 2013 on the other hand seems promising, as it supports detailing. Because of the limitations of the trial version, I haven’t been able to assess the level of rebar detailing it does.
Which tools are you using to conduct a static analysis, design and plans for a building? What tools do you suggest to proceed with my thesis.
Could you please
1) check if EC2 code is implemented
2) upload some rebar detailing plans so that we can all see the detailing abilities of ETABS
3) check if reinforcing slabs is available or still part of SAFE
Thanks in advance,
the detailing of etabs 2013 are very usefull and informational… use a register version… download from torrentz.eu and then write in youtube how to register etab2013…. i hope your problem will be solved
Go to official website of ETABS or subscribe to their channel in UTube to see the videos coming along with software. EC2 inluded as well.
