ETABS MODELLING

1. DEFINITION : a. Define Grids and units : b. Define codes : Concrete frame design: ACI318-08/IBC2009 Shear wall design : ACI318-2009 c. Define Materials : Concrete C30/C40/C50 Mass = 2.4 Weight per unit volume = 24.6 Modulus of Elasticity = 25800/29800/33300 { ECO = 4700 fc } Poissons ratio =0.2 Coefficient of thermal expansion = 9.90 E-06 Specified concrete comp strength, fc = 30 MPa / 40 MPa / 50 MPa Bending Reinf. Yield stress, fy = 400 MPa Shear . Yield stress, fys = 400 MPa d. Columns and beams Concrete columns: - Sizes : appropriate sizes - Material : C30/C40/C50 - Modification factors : Moment of inertia about axis 2 = 0.7 Moment of inertia about axis 3 = 0.7 - Reinforcement data : Design type = column Cover = 40 mm Reinf. To be designed And later Rein. To be checked Concrete beams: - Sizes : appropriate sizes - Modification factors : Moment of inertia about axis 2 = 0.35 Moment of inertia about axis 3 = 0.35 - Reinforcement data : Design type = beam Cover = 40 mm Reinf. For ductile beams to be putted later after design e. Walls and Slabs Concrete Walls: - Sizes : appropriate sizes - Material : C40

Type : shell Modification factors : Bending m11 = 0.7 Bending m22 = 0.7 Bending m33 = 0.7 Concrete Slabs: - Sizes : appropriate sizes - Material : C40 - Type : shell - Modification factors : Bending m11 = 0.25 Bending m22 = 0.25 Bending m33 = 0.25 The modification factors for columns and beams can be defined later by selecting the elements
