See results in the units that you are used to seeing them in.
Use architectural dimensioning.
3D perspective graphical displays
Static deformed and mode shapes animation of deformed shapes
Users can display deformed geometry based on any load, or combination of loads.
Moment, Shear and Axial Force Diagrams
Force diagrams and stress contours
Story vertical loads, shears and overturning moments
Selective results displayed on-screen with right-button click
Tabular display of model input & output
Graphical section cut definitions for forces and stresses
The resultant (free-body) forces and moments across any cut in the structure can be defined using section cuts.
A section cut can have any shape, and can be used to compute story shears, connecting forces, design forces in shear walls, and for many other purposes.
Section cut results can be obtained for all types of load cases and combinations.
ETABS has the ability to generate video (.avi) files to visually display a set of analysis results that vary over a particular time period, such as in a time history analysis.
Output plot functions include:
Generalized Displacement functions
Section Cut functions
Shell Force and Stress Contours
Based on load case, load combination or modal case
Show resultant forces or shell stresses or any component in any direction
Control stress contour appearance:
Show on undeformed, deformed, or extruded shape
Display selected reaction components
Display as arrows
Display as tables that can be user-positioned
Results for load combinations and cases
Tables for all input data, analysis results, and design results
Filter, sort, and query table data
Customize column data format
Hide unnecessary columns
Print or save tabular data to Access, Excel, Word, HTML, or TXT
Rendered views can used to create very nice images to include in client reports. ETABS has multiple lighting options, shadows, and texture options to create life like looking images of your structures.
