1. Drafting for model generation
It includes modelling the structural members of the buildings in ETABS as per the architectural drawings. In this duration we tend to learn the tools and commands required to model any structure.
Having a good hand on AutoCAD then you can Draft the Model in it and then import it to ETABS. Or you can also bring Floor Plans just for reference from either AutoCAD or Revit Architecture.
ETABS includes various types of loading methods. It is very easy to apply Seismic or Wind Load on any type of structure.
ETABS supports many types of high level analysis like the Response Spectrum analysis, Time History analysis, Pushover Analysis, P-Delta analysis, Auto-Construction Sequence Analysis and many more.
The Capabilities of ETABS is not only related to analysis but the results are also very easy to read and understand. The results can also be easily segregated or can be exported to Excel with just one click.
ETABS is also integrated with report Generation technique which helps us to generate report with required inputs and outputs of the model with shortest period of time. And we can also export the report to Microsoft Word so that you can edit it.
