Hello sefians,
After I analyse a building in ETABS and and do the design,
What are the results or output from etabs I need to give to site engineer for execution? Also in what forms it needs to be., I mean detailing drawings or or any other forms.
As of I know, etabs does only concrete frame elements design I.e beam and column design. So do we need to provide the other designs of members like slab, footing, staircase  by manual analysis?
Also my doubt is for example in design of beams, there will be hundreds of beams in a structure. Do we design for every beam  of particular sizes or just few we need to design that in which BM are maximum.
Same holds for other members too..there will be numerous column's, slabs etc in a structure, do we design all of them individually or only few with critical values. And how to decide it.
Regards.

1.       After analysis no output results are required to give to Site Engineer.

2.       We are required to give Good For Construction (GFC) Drawings to site Engineer.

3.       Yes we have to manually make the design of stairs, slabs, footings etc. ( Softwareare available for design of foundation and slab design            ( SAFE))

4.       Not only Bending moment but other internal forces like shear and torsion we need to check. Also serviceability limits such as crack width deflection etc we need to check. So we have to see each beam separately. After that if grouping is possible then we can do the grouping and according can make the structural drawings. Same is applicable for other structural members also.

Dear Aatif,

As the fraternity,  advise you please work with experienced persons in your company or group.

Something should be learnt and implemented on the site under the supervision of those learned people. we and our designs are subject to liability and people safety.

If you have a specific query in the process, we all there to support you.


Regards,
