1. For Moderate/Expert Users
There are three types of Analysis covered in this Tutorial Series.
1. Linear Static Analysis
2. Non-Linear Static Analysis (Pushover Analysis)
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. In the end , you will learn how to design the Steel Structures as per AISC 360. A separate lecture is given at the end for Connection and Base Plate Design.
Case study 4- Linear Dynamic Analysis and Design of Steel Space Truss Structures for American Standards
Space Truss Structures are very unique in the way how force travel in them. A big space truss is first taught how to model , then analyze and in the end design as per the American Standards. You will learn more about the mode shapes of the huge structures. In the end , you will be comfortable with how the Steel Space Truss Structures can be Designed.
Case study 5- Non-Linear Static Analysis or Pushover Analysis of the Structures
In the last decade , much has been written on the push over analysis. How the push over analysis is superior to Static Push over Analysis , but very few people actually know how to do the push over analysis. Even experts in the Structural Engineering Field Shy away from this topic.
In this lecture series , you will learn how to make the push over curve and find the Performance Point. What it really means to push the Structure up to a certain displacement. How the Response Spectrum Curve needs to be aligned with the Pushover Curve to find the Performance Point. In the end , you will be able to access the Performance of the Structure. Axial , Shear and Moment Hinges are explained with the help of slides.
Case study 6- Linear Dynamic Analysis of 23 Story High Rise Structure as per Indian Standards
In this lecture series , you will learn how to read the Architecture Drawings , How to Do the basic planning of the Structural Elements.
The important widely asked questions that will get answered in this lecture series are
1. What is the difference between flexible and rigid diaphragms and how to assign the diaphragms to the RCC Slab ?
2. How to do P-Delta Analysis
3. How to do the Scaling of the Response Spectrum values to the Static Earthquake Analysis Values.
4. How to Read the ETABS Editor File ?
5. How to Design the Shear Wall ?
6. How to Export the reactions to SAFE and Design the Raft in SAFE ?
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 will learn the basics of Soil Structure Interaction and designing basic Raft Foundation. Completing this Part will make you clear about the difference between Thin shell, Thick shell and Membrane.
You will also learn the Basics of Structural Dynamics. You will be familiar with the Mode Shapes, Mass Participation, Earthquake analysis, Time periods etc. You may understand that this is a section to refer in case , you are stuck with any case study.
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.
