Define Coordinate System/Grids

For a regular or general system, the coordinate system is defined using an origin and orientation relative to the Global coordinate system. All coordinate systems follow the right-hand rule. The grid lines for a regular system are defined relative to X and Y (Cartesian) or r and theta (cylindrical). The grid lines for a general system are defined relative to X and Y only. A regular system is any coordinate/grid system having a Cartesian (rectangular) or cylindrical grid system. A general system is a system comprised of arbitrarily defined grid lines. The Global coordinate system always exists, and has its own grid. All other systems are user defined with respect to the Global system.

Select the point and area

Offset selected points of selected areas only

Edit Areas

Add point to area edge

ACECOMS, AIT

Add points to the edges at the midpoint between the existing points of the selected object. This procedure can do repeatedly as many times as needed.

Edit Areas

Remove points from area

Select the area and the point to be removed. If the point was not colinear with the remaining points, the area object will be reshaped.

Time History:

ACECOMS, AIT

Linear Time History. Time-varying loads are applied. Requires time-history functions. All objects behave linearly. Period. Specify a single cycle of the periodic function and assumes that the specified cycle continues indefinitely. All objects behave linearly. Nonlinear Time History. Time-varying loads are applied. Requires time-history functions. Nonlinear dynamic properties assigned to link elements are considered.

Energy/ Virtual Work Function In this very simple example, the equation above could be reduced to an element level where the elements are illustrated in Figure "c" as: P δ = [P1 δ roof - P1 δ second] + [(P1 + P2) δ second]

Energy/ Virtual Work Function P δ = [P1 δ roof - P1 δ second] + [(P1 + P2) δ second] ETABS show the energy diagram, it reports the equivalent of the values shown in brackets in the above equation of the background information for each element in the structure. Note the following about the energy values that ETABS reports:

Analysis and Design of Buildings using ETABS

Energy/ Virtual Work Function P δ = [P1 δ roof - P1 δ second] + [(P1 + P2) δ second] They are based on all six degrees of freedom of the element, not just the one degree of freedom described in the Figure and the associated equations in the background information. They are determined as follows: ETABS determines the energy per unit volume associated with each element in the structure. ETABS normalizes all of the calculated energy values such that the largest one has a value of 100.
