release shear in etabs

hello everyone

i just want to know when we use shear release or axial release in Etabs program?
what is the conditions? can anyone help please?

RE: release shear in etabs

When you detail the connection to not take shear

RE: release shear in etabs


okay i understand but can you give me an example please?

RE: release shear in etabs

How do you understand it? Try telling us how you understand it so we can help you implement it properly in your ETABS model.

For now, see attached. Same applies to shear, moment, torsion, and all other forces.

RE: release shear in etabs

okay now its more clear for me because i was just thinking about concrete elements so i couldn't understand the idea very well>
thanks for explaining

RE: release shear in etabs

i will be so grateful if you give me more conditions

RE: release shear in etabs

Releasing restraints can also in concrete elements as well. Think of a precast T-beam being connected to a cast-in-place column. The T-beam will be simply supported with no moment restraints, so you release all moments and make it pinned.
