i have some questions and i am hoping to find some answers from you kind people.
1) when we use doubly reinforced beams how can be obtain economy be controlling ceiling height ?
2) where do we use bar curtailment and bent up bars in beams because there are not ACI provisions related to bar curtailment (as far as i know)
3)i have seen examples in books they calculate steel area for beams and they provide combination of different dia bars to satisfy that area why they do it because they can satisfy same area using same dia bars ?
4)which design method Etabs uses. LRFD or ASD?
5) how do we design the hanger bars. what is ACI provision for it?
6)where do we use inclined stirrups in beams ?
7) how the longitudinal reinforcing can be used as shear reinforcement ?
Thank you all in advance. Looking forward to your responses.

Assalam o alaikum,
Is there any suitable software available for concrete and steel quantities take of for all members like slab, column, beam, shear wall and foundation? especially which may work in conjunction with ETABS/SAP2000/SAFE. I found suggestions of some seniors to use SAFE for slab footing beam quantities but I want some specialized software where I can export my model of etabs or safe for quantity estimation? I just want to avoid time consumption for this purpose and speed up the process. Has any one listen about BLUEBEAM REVU software? I have heard about it but dont know in details.

Hello dear Seniors,
i am new to etabs i was designing a multistory plaza and when i ran the analysis following error occurred
Warning: Area load transfer, Check StoryX, F659. Total loss = .......
i have tried to re mesh my model using default meshing but it does not help can any one tell me whats wrong with my model.
Please see the below picture for more info on the same issue
Note: if i design the model while these error are present majority of my beams and columns fail, if i try to increase their sections to the max even then they dont satisfy......
