Course Contents

Introduction

  • Introduction to earthquake engineering (basic concepts only from design point of view)

  • Base shear numerical

 

Super Structure Analysis and Design using ETABS

  • Background: Concepts of architectural drawings; coordinate / grid system; structural layout of beams, columns and shear walls (if any); earthquake- resistant design

  • ETABS introduction; grids layout; material properties; member sizes, modifiers and other details

  • Geometry layout (beams, columns, shear walls, slabs); replication (linear, mirror, story); supports

  • Basic load cases (Dead, superimposed dead, live, roof live, soil (if any) and earthquake); mass-source

  • Factored load combinations (considering eccentricities in all directions and using all code clauses)

  • Applying basic loads (point, uniformly distributed, varying lateral and area loads)

  • Checking model errors; analysis options; model analysis

  • Evaluation of analysis; performing concrete design

  • Extracting column design

  • Extracting beam design

  • Extracting shear wall design
  • Extracting slab design

 

Sub Structure Analysis and Design using SAFE

  • Concepts of allowable bearing capacity (net, gross and effective); examples

  • Exporting ETABS file for SAFE foundation model; Importing ETABS data/analysis; material and soil properties; foundation type and thickness; applying additional loads (if required)

  • Preliminary foundation layout

  • Factored load combinations (considering eccentricities in all directions and using all code clauses)

  • Evaluation of analysis and design; checking bearing pressures and satisfying foundation sizes

  • Extracting foundation design
