ETABS

Description

ETABS is a software that specializes in high-rise buildings. It caters for multi-story building analysis and design. ETABS does virtually everything that SAP2000 and SAFE can do. ETABS structures can be modeled and calculated just like all other engineering software. We strongly believe that this is the software for civil engineers who need to learn and master.
