As you know, we are forced to convert the ETABS results to executive drawings. This is a time consuming job. Is there any software that accept ETABS outputs and generate drawings? Specially for a reinforced concrete structure.

ETABS has a built in detailing feature.

Here are a few others.

I have personally tried none of these so can't give you any expert advise about specific softwares.

      Dear fellows!
      I have observed that some senior engineers have not been using stiffness modifiers in their designs. What is the concept behind  i am not clear . As we design RC for strength, section is cracked and to cater for this cracked section, property modifiers are used as per
       ACI 318-11  10.10.4 (stiffness requirement)

       ACI 318-11  8.7 (stiffness requirement)


      UBC97 1630.1.2 (modelling requirement)
       so why whole section is considered in design. is there any other logic which i couldn't understand.
       
      Regards

      Assalam o alaikum,
      I was reading ETABS concrete frame design manual ACI 318-08. In beam design section, it gives two formulae which I am unable to find in books. One formula for stress block depth and one formula for negative steel calculation. I have highlighted the formulae in below images. The manual design using these formulae and conventional formulae gives the same result. But kindly guide me from where I can get derivation of these formulae or theory behind this.
