This tutorial will show how to analyze and design a reinforced concrete building subjected to floor, wind and seismic loads. The structure will be modeled by importing CAD files for different sections of the structure as well as using automatic functions to copy symmetrical floors. Finally, the training will cover how the program can design reinforcement bars of sections like columns and footings as well as how it can interact with Design Plus to obtain the optimum design of the section and its detailed drawings.
