- Checking project modeling and how to fix errors if needed.
- Checking the displacements in the floors due to the seismic forces according to the code used and the irregularities such as the Torsional, Weak and the Soft story irregularity.
- Designing shear walls, columns and Beams with the requirements for each member in the ETABS program.
- Export analysis results of floors from ETABS to SAFE program
- How to prepare SAFE for the analysis and design process
- Definition of long-term deflection combinations in SAFE program and how to check it.
- Read all analysis results in the SAFE program

- How to check Soil stresses, one way shear and Punching shear
- Design and analysis of various types of concrete foundations
This course aims to provide trainees with the most important skills necessary to design and analysis processes for earthquake-resistant buildings using different engineering programs such as: ETABS and SAFE, so that the trainees become familiar with the concepts of seismic design and structural analysis and the link between office design and application on the ground.
