3. Linear Dynamic Analysis (Response Spectrum Analysis)

The design codes covered are American and Indian Standards with Introduction to European Standards.

Case study 1 - Design of Pre-Engineered Building Steel Structure as per Indian Standards.

Steel Structures especially PEB are somewhat tricky to model, analyze and design. Majority of the people are comfortable in RCC Design, but very few are expert in Steel Design. After covering this section , you will be able to calculate wind and seismic loads as per the Indian Standards , Model the Steel Structures i.e. Portal , Plan Bracing and Elevation Bracing, Analyze , Review the Modal Shapes and Design the Structure. Instructor will also teach you how to do the value engineering and optimize the Steel Structures. At the end of this lecture series , you will be comfortable with Steel Structures.

Case study 2- Linear Dynamic Analysis and Design of Bill Board Steel Structure as per Indian Standards.

Bill Boards are supported on the very large Cantilever Steel Structures. You will learn how to plan the basic Structural System, which can resist the high wind and high seismic loads. You will learn how to do the dynamic analysis of the Steel Structure. Modal Analysis is a very important part. You will also learn how to improve the Mode Shapes , how to check the Fundamental Time Period. At the end , you will be able to understand how to design the Steel Structure. Value Engineering and Optimization is also taught in the end. Instability also become an integral part of ETABS modellers. You will learn how to remove the Instabilities.

Case study 3- Linear Dynamic Analysis and Design of Industrial Heavy Steel Structure as per American Standards

Industrial Heavy Structures looks very difficult and confusing in the beginning. They may be a nightmare in the beginning for Novice Engineers, but in this lecture series , you will learn how to do the basic Steel Structure Planning, How to Plan the Plan and Elevation Bracing. You will learn what are the basic Mode Shapes for Industrial Heavy Structures. You shall also learn how you can do the Dynamic Analysis of the Structures.

These six questions are very important to understand for any Structural Engineer for designing any Structure in ETABS.


2. For Intermediate/Novice Users, ETABS Basics Section is provided

This Section is the very basic steps in Learning of ETABS software. Moderate or Expert users may skip this part or may refer to this part as a refresher Introduction. You may also refer to this part , in case , if you face any problem while completing Case Studies.

You will start with the

Absolute Basics Section- Instructor proceeds step by step through the process of drawing grids, defining stories, defining materials, defining section properties, drawing objects in the structural engineering models, defining loads, selecting load combinations with theoretical explanations and examples.

You need to understand that this is not an easy to do course. You may need to repeat the course content of over 20 Hours over and over again to understand the course content. This course is only intended for Serious Students. Much efforts has been done to provide the practical understanding of the Software , which is not available anywhere on the internet , hence costlier than other courses on this platform.

Healthy Discussions and Queries are always Welcome inside.
