Course Objective

This is a comprehensive hands-on training course on using ETABS to model, analyze, design and detail a Reinforced Concrete Building Structure subjected to static gravity loads and lateral loads.

This course introduces the core technologies needed to become an adept user of ETABS, including an overview of the key finite elements modelling and analysis concepts. Limited registration and small class sizes allow for interaction with the instructor, and in-person courses allow additional time for discussion, exercises and Q&A.

This course is helpful for people with little experience with ETABS and numerical modelling of building structure, as well as for experienced users who would like to broaden their basic understanding of the ETABS system.
