Step by Step
1. Start Model with Template
Step 1-1: Select Working Unit and Start New Model using Template Start up screen of ETABS, select working unit to be ton-m at drop-down menu on the bottom-right of screen and click on New Model button to start new model using template

Note: Click the Default.edb button. This means that the definitions and preferences will be initialized (get their initial values) from the Default.edb file that is in the same directory as your ETABS.exe file. If the Default.edb file does not exist in this directory then the definitions and preferences are initialized using ETABS built-in defaults. You should create your Default.edb file such that you most commonly click this button. In some cases you may want to click the Choose.edb button and specify a different file from which the definitions and preferences are to be initialized. For example, a certain client or project may require certain things in your model to be done in a certain way that is different from your typical office standards. You could have a specific .edb file set up for this client or project which could then be used to initialize all models for the client or project. This will allow setting of the repeatedly used preferences. Click the No button if you just want to use the built-in ETABS defaults.

= Reliability/Redundancy Factor as given by the following formula = 2 20 / (rmax x sqrt(AB)) (30-3) = 2 6.1 / (rmax x sqrt(AB)) (For SI) rmax = the maximum element-story shear ratio. For a given direction of loading, the element-story shear ratio is the ratio of the design story shear in the most heavily loaded single element divided by the total design story shear. For any given Story Level i, the element story shear ratio is denoted as ri. The maximum element-story shear ratio rmax is defined as the largest of the element story shear ratios, ri, which occurs in any of the story levels at or below the two-thirds height level of building.

## 14. Check Story Drift

P- Effects In general, P- effects need not be considered when the stability coefficient () defined as the ratio of secondary moments to primary moments, is less than or equal to 0.1. The stability coefficient () for a given story can be computed from the following equation: = Px / (Vx hsx) Px = total unfactored gravity load at and above level x = seismic story drift Vx = seismic shear force between levels x and x-1 hsx = story height below level x From ETABS, / hsx is extracted from diaphragm drift of ETABS results. Px is extracted by section cut. V is extracted from story shear. Compute and if < 1, P- effects needs not be considered. In Seismic Zones 3 and 4, P- effects need not be considered when the story drift () is less than or equal to 0.02hsx / R. Story Drift Limitations According to 1630.10, story drifts shall be computed using the maximum inelastic response displacement (M), which is an approximation of the displacement that occurs when the structure is subjected to the design basis ground motion: M = 0.7 R S S is the design level response displacements. For structures with a fundamental period (T) less than 0.7 seconds, the calculated story drift using M shall not be exceed 0.025 times the story height. For structures

82/83

## ETABS Tutorial Example

ACECOMS, AIT

with T greater than or equal to 0.7 seconds, the story drift shall not exceed 0.020 times the story height. From ETABS, Calculated story drift is determined by multiplying the diaphragm drift into 0.7 x R.
