## ETABS Tutorial Example

Note: 1. Output time step size should be set such a way that the peak amplitude points on the time history function are not missed. (0.1 sec for this example) 2. Because the values along Y axis of time history function as specified in step 3 are normalized by ground acceleration (g), the scale factor will be value of g (9.81 in metric unit). 3. This scale factor can also be used to increase or decrease the time history magnitude for difference soil condition, site locationetc. 4. Total analysis time = Total time history function + 5 time of building period in first mode (for damping = 0.05). = 12 + 5 x 1.2 = 18 sec 5. Number of output time steps = Total analysis time / Output time step size

9. Run Shear Wall Design and View Results Typical Shear Wall Design Procedure
Following is a typical shear wall design process that might occur for a new building. Note that the sequence of steps you may take in any particular design may vary from this but the basic process will be essentially the same. 1. After create the building model Use the Options menu > Preferences > Shear Wall Design command to review the shear wall design preferences and revise them if necessary. Note that there are default values provided for all shear wall design preferences so it is not actually necessary for you to define any preferences unless you want to change some of the default preference values. 2. Run the building analysis using the Analyze menu > Run Analysis command. 3. Assign the wall pier and wall spandrel labels. Use the Assign menu > Frame/Line > Pier Label, the Assign menu > Shell/Area > Pier Label, the Assign menu > Frame/Line > Spandrel Label, and the Assign menu > Shell/Area > Spandrel Label commands to do this. Note that the labels can be assigned before or after the analysis is run. 4. Assign shear wall overwrites, if needed, using the Design menu > Shear Wall Design > View/Revise Pier Overwrites and the Design menu > Shear Wall Design > View/Revise Spandrel Overwrites commands. Note that you must select piers or spandrels first before using these commands. Also note that there are default values provided for all pier and spandrel design overwrites so it is not actually necessary for you to define any overwrites unless you want to change some of the default overwrite values. Note that the overwrites can be assigned before or after the analysis is run. Important note about selecting piers and spandrels: You can select a pier or spandrel simply by selecting any line or area object that is part of the pier or spandrel.

4. Assign these check sections to the piers, change the pier mode from Design to Check, and rerun the design. Verify that the actual flexural reinforcing provided is adequate. 5. If necessary, revise the geometry or reinforcing and rerun the design. 6. Print or display selected shear wall design results if desired. Note that shear wall design is performed as an iterative process. You can change your wall design dimensions and reinforcing during the design process without rerunning the analysis. However, you always want to be sure that your final design is based on analysis properties (wall dimensions) that are consistent with your design (actual) wall dimensions.
