Re: ETABS Modelling-Flexible Floor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The older verions of ETABS model either perfectly rigid or perfectly
flexible - nothing in between..  I think is was around ETABS version 7 that
introduced a semi-rigid diaphragm element.

How do you model flexible floor in ETABS?

Any thoughts please.  Thanks.
