THIS IS ETABS
For nearly 30 years, ETABS has been recognized as the industry standard for Building Analysis and Design Software. Today, continuing in the same tradition, ETABS has evolved into a completely Integrated Building Analysis and Design Environment. The System built around a physical object based graphical user interface, powered by targeted new special purpose algorithms for analysis and design, with interfaces for drafting and manufacturing, is redefining standards of integration, productivity and technical innovation.
The integrated model can include Moment Resisting Frames, Braced Frames, Staggered Truss Systems, Frames with Reduced Beam Sections or Side Plates, Rigid and Flexible Floors, Sloped Roofs, Ramps and Parking Structures, Mezzanine Floors, Multiple Tower Buildings and Stepped Diaphragm Systems with Complex Concrete, Composite or Steel Joist Floor Framing Systems. Solutions to complex problems such as Panel Zone Deformations, Diaphragm Shear Stresses, and Construction Sequence Loading are now at your fingertips.
ETABS is the solution, whether you are designing a simple 2D frame or performing a dynamic analysis of a complex high-rise that utilizes non-linear dampers for inter-story drift control. In any endeavor, a tool tailored to a task is the most efficient. For buildings, ETABS provides the automation and specialized options needed to make the process of model creation, analysis and design fast and convenient. Tools for laying out floor framing, colums, frames and walls, in either concrete or steel, as well as techniques for quickly generating gravity and lateral loads offer many advantages not available from most general purpose finite element programs. Seismic and wind loads are generated automatically according to the requirements of the selected building code. All of these modeling and analysis options are completely integrated with a wide range of steel and concrete design features.
Full dynamic analysis, including nonlinear time-history capabilities for seismic base isolation and viscous dampers, along with static nonlinear pushover features offer state-of-the-art technology to the engineer doing performance design. Powerful features for the selections and optimization of vertical framing members as well as the identification of key elements for lateral drift control provide significant time savings in the design cycle.
In addition, because ETABS includes complete and detailed steel and concrete design calculations for beams and columns, braces, walls and slabs, the time typically associated with the transfer of data between analysis and design programs has been eliminated. This design integration, in combination with the fact that ETABS generates CAD output files, means that production drawings can be generated faster and with greater accuracy.
ETABS has long been a favorite for the analysis and design of buildings, and whether the project is a one story shopping center or the tallest building in the world, this latest release offers the comprehensive tools needed to produce timely, efficient and elegant engineering solutions.
ETABS LEVEL DEFINITION
Plus Version: No practical limit on model size. Object based modeling specifically developed for design and analysis of building systems. Use column, beam, brace, wall, ramp and floor objects to design for gravity and lateral loads all within the same model with auto-meshing options for one-way or two-way load transfer. Option to have multiple Cartesian and/or cylindrical coordinate systems. Insertion point options to connect top of beam, bottom of beam or other cardinal point locations. Auto lateral load generation for wind and seismic loads using UBC, IBC, NBCC, ASCE and other standards. Loading options for joint, line (uniform or trapezoidal), surface area, and temperature. Automatic design of steel members, joist design, composite beam design, concrete frame design, and shear wall design with no limits on the types of connections: continuous, moment and/or shear releases. Option to design for different materials within the same model. For example, a steel frame building with filled deck composite beam floors and shear walls can be designed within the same model. Static, modal analysis, response spectrum and time history dynamic analysis, and 2nd order P-delta effects all available with the Plus version. User control on how mass is calculated. Tension only and compression only frame elements. Line constraint option to connect mismatched meshes for transfer of shear and moments. Open GL view options for walk-thru.
Nonlinear Version: Expands the Plus options to include nonlinear analysis under both static and/or time history loading. Nonlinear analysis for gaps, hooks, friction dampers, tension or compression only, large deformation analysis, base isolators, and pushover analysis per ATC and FEMA criteria including use of plastic hinges (moment vs. rotation, force vs. deflection curves), and basic stage construction analysis.
The ETABS has a Section Designer feature as an integral part of the program. The way you access Section Designer is that you go to the Define menu and add a SD Section from the Frame section property box to define nonstandard sections, built-up sections, and/or to specify rebar configurations. An advantage using this feature instead of the Section Builder standalone program is that the sections are available to you to use within the model. The ETABS Package comes with a comprehensive set of printed and online documentation including: User Manuals, Tutorials, Watch and Learn Videos.

The Wilson FNA Method: The ETABS nonlinear time history analysis uses the new numerical Integration technique known as the Wilson FNA (Fast Nonlinear Analysis) Method. The procedure uses an iterative vector superposition algorithm that is extremely efficient for analzing structures with predefined, localized nonlinearity. The method has demonstrated significant reductions in processing times when compared with other nonlinear analysis methods.
