This course not just a tutorial on software ETABS and SAFE but it is a complete understanding about structural design analysis, how civil engineer must begin with the project, how he/she must think, how we can determine the dimension of the element before modeling them check it in the software. In this course we will design a 4 stories Villa in UAE, within the work we will show you how to select the best type of slab type for this Villa, also how to select the best type of foundation. Also during the design we will show very complicated and challenged topic in the structural design of the Villa for example:
1- What type of slab we must choose: Ribbed Slab, Solid Slab, Flat Slab ?
2- The largest span which increase the bending moment loads on the beams.
3- Check of the short and long term Deflection of the Slabs.
4- Select the best type of foundations (Isolated or combined or Raft foundation).
5- Design of the swimming pool of the Villa using Sap2000 Software.
6- Design of the water tank of the Villa using Sap2000 software.
In the structural design of this villa you will learn all the steps that help you to modeling analysis and design of any project in ETABS and SAFE (Import AutoCAD file, create and define grids, define materials, define sections, define loads, Modeling, Analysis of the loads, Design the structural element, export loads from ETABS to SAFE to design slabs, beams and foundation, Export from AutoCAD to ETABS learn the correct method to import AutoCAD file into ETABS.
