Dear Experts,

In etabs while applying wall loads we selct the beam and add line load however the beam is connected from center nodes so does the wall load length go till the center nodes? If yes than we have some duplication of the load and in case we have large columns the duplication may result into increase in the dead load. Please advise.

Also is it recommended to apply UDL for Wall loads in Etabs for cases where we have walls on the slab?

Just a layman's view

To account for wall load duplication with rcc frame beams , apply a multiplier 0.95 or so for density of brick material in input. This will give slightly reduced load to account for duplication issue.

Light weight partitions can be placed on slabs , but 115 th brick partition walls may need beams , or concealed beams , but equivalent UDL is always higher . Better to model as line load on slab.

Not worked on etab ,and hence a layman's viewpoint.
