No EC8 in ETABS???

No EC8 in ETABS???

No EC8 in ETABS???

After building the whole model, setting up the analysis and getting ready for EC8 seismic design.....ooops actually there is no EC8 IN ETABS.
That one i didnt expect, is there any other code covered by ETABS that uses capacity design?

RE: No EC8 in ETABS???

There are various codes in etabs, is there any code that uses capacity design?

EC8 is considered if codes EN1993-2005 or EN1992-2005 are chosen for steel and concrete design respectively.
