ETABS 2016 now gives users the ability to perform slab design with post-tensioning.
Integrated moment, shear, and torsion for design strips displayed onscreen and reported in tables.
Model PT tendons and allow consideration of post-tensioning in the design of concrete slabs within ETABS.
Model slab design strips that can be used for concrete slab design, within ETABS. American, European, British, Canadian, along with several additional international codes are available.
Punching-shear design checks in concrete slabs at columns and load locations specified by the user. Overwrites for punching perimeters can be added as well as specifying openings which affect the perimeter but are not explicitly modeled.
ETABS can now display slab cracked-width based on Eurocode 2-2004.
Apply thickness overwrites on a joint-by-joint basis, allowing slabs and walls to have non-uniform thicknesses. Joint offsets can also be applied.
Generate spring and dashpot properties under footing to model soil-structure interaction.
Define vibration analysis paths on floor slabs, along with parameters defining demand and capacity. Automated time-history analysis is performed for each case.
Creep and shrinkage behavior now includes the effect of rebar to reduce axial shortening of columns and walls.
Animated plot shows story accelerations, drifts, shears and overturning moments together on the same plot for time history and nonlinear static load cases.
