Etabs is a refined and convenient special purpose analysis and design program developed especially for building systems. With its integrated system and the ability to handle the largest and most complex building models configuration, it assures:
- Powerful CAD-like drawing tools in a graphical and object based interface.
- Increased productivity of structural engineers in the building industry.
- Significant savings in time and efficiency over general purpose programs.
Why should you learn?
ETabs can help you convert your ideas into product designs quickly and effectively. It enhances your ability to learn the geometry of building systems. In ETabs, model creation and reporting of results are accomplished at the object level. It enables the designer to focus on macroscopic performance targets. ETabs is well equipped to handle simplified lateral procedures, Push-over analysis, Response Spectrum Analysis and Response History Analysis. The data output options are much more conducive to lateral design in special purpose software like ETabs. ETabs can also be utilized for handling large scale seismic projects including those that involve Non-Linear Modeling. It comes with libraries of various pre-built or pre-designed code-dependent formulations so that the user does not have to re-define basic parameters depending on the conditions
