    1. To check soil pressure in SAFE v8, - After running the analysis, go to Diplay menu, - Select 'Show Reaction Forces...', - Select 'Soil Pressures', - Select the Load case or combination, - Click on OK. 2. Minimum & maximum pressures are the Actual range of calculated pressures anywhere on the given foundation. 3. The limit of pressure us the Allowable Soil Bearing Pressure provided by a geotechnical engineer, after carrying out necesary field & laboratory tests on the at the project site or the soil samples taken from the site. Regards.
  3. Plz check this , suddenly he gives me a huge axial loads on columns due to thermal loads , i tried to delete it and assign it many times but nothing change



    How to check the soil pressures in SAFE? What is difference between min and max pressures? and what is allowable limit?

  6. Frame Bending Moment in ETABS

    hi everyone, have anyone got a similar problem like below? I've modeling a concrete buulding with slab as membrane the frame I've modeling per part, but the bending moment still like 1 long beam with 2 end support Thanks

    Good article.. The best part is that it is in urdu.. I am trying to get a language pack for forum too that can allow urdu posts but no luck so far. Thanks for sharing.
  9. Live Load Reduction

    The file referred in the link is Chapter 4 of 2002 version (ASCE 7-02) of 'Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures', dealing with Live Loads. Reduction of Live Load is permitted, as per procedure & limitations described in Section 4.8 of this chapter. This information is also available in later versions of ASCE 7. In case of ASCE 7-05, it is provided in Section 4.8, whereas in ASCE 7-10, you may find it in Section 4.7 of the standard. Regards.

    How can i assign ductility class in Etabs 2015?
  12. Live Load Reduction

    Dwar Baz in the above link file not found.we usually select Tributary Area for L.L.R,can sm1 explain why its done and wat abt other options like Influence area etc.thnx

    Very informative & impressive article, on a very very important topic of earthquake awareness, both technically as well as for the general knowledge of common people. And, that too in Urdu language for easy understanding of even non-technical people. Fully appreciated. Except a mistake (most probably typographic) of indicating Quetta in Zone 3 (Instead of Zone 4), the article is really superb, both from technical information as well from clarity points of view. Hopefully, it would help the readers understand how the earthquakes initiate, what are their negative effects & why their homes should be earthquake resistant. Regards.
  14. Seismic dynamics

    This is related to calculus... you can study the theory about complex numbers... refer calculus by howard anton For seismic dynamics refer Structural Dynamics by Anil K Chopra..

  19. Shear Wall vs Column

    See this thread.
  20. Thickness of footing

    Before you decide the thickness, you need to size the foundation based on bearing pressure so that there is minimum eccentricity if possible. We never want to have high sustained tension on combined foundation. After that you can use one way and two way shear checks to see which one governs.
  21. Thickness of footing

    To the point background & design examples prividing step-by-step procedure for the design of combined footings, including determination of thickness, is available at the following link. Design calculations are based on ACI 318-05 requirements. Combined footings Regards.

  24. Shear Wall vs Column

    My point here is different. Walls are also designed as flexural members like columns. Aspect ratio is a guide line. Cols and walls however are reinforced differently but my main point is different regarding modelling. You can do an example in a 3d model try replacing a line element with shell element of same size and check how much latetal force both are resisting (compare their base reactions).
  25. Thickness of footing

    Draw the shear force diagram for one way shear. Calculate the design bearing pressure for determining the demand for resistance against punching.
  26. Shear wall from 3rd storey

    The demand on the horizontal and vertical members that will transfer the forces of a wall to the foundation is a major concern. The demand will be calculated by considering the expected ductility and overstrength of the wall.
  27. Thickness of footing

    Thickness can be determined by punching shear and beam shear formula
