Webinar details

Embark on a journey through the complete analysis and design process of a G+2 reinforced concrete building using Eurocode 2-2004 standards in this beginner-friendly webinar. We’ll start with an overview of general considerations in structural design, covering key principles and concepts essential for understanding the structural behavior of buildings.

Next, delve into the intricacies of ETABS, the renowned structural analysis and design software, as we explore material definitions, section properties, diaphragms, load patterns, and load combinations. Learn how to effectively model structural elements including beams, slabs, and columns, and discover advanced techniques for load assignment and mesh options.

The webinar will then progress to the analysis phase, where we’ll demonstrate how to perform rigorous structural analysis using ETABS. Following this, we’ll dive into the design process, applying Eurocode 2-2004 guidelines to ensure structural integrity and compliance with regulatory standards.

Participants will also gain valuable insights into interpreting result outputs generated by ETABS, enabling them to effectively evaluate and optimize their designs. To wrap up, we’ll provide an overview of foundation design considerations, rounding off the webinar with a comprehensive understanding of the entire structural design process.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your skills and proficiency in structural engineering with Eurocode 2-2004 and ETABS.
