WHAT IS AFTERBURNER: COLUMN®?

Afterburner: Column® is designed to empower engineers to design buildings faster and reduce tedious work via traditional methods. ETABS Afterburner: Column® reduces the design time from a few weeks to a few seconds, this eliminates the need for complicated spreadsheets, hand markups for BIM modeling and makes for more accessible documentation and iteration if the design changes throughout the life-cycle of the project.

CSi ETABS® is the most popular and capable structural analysis programs in the world. They provide structural engineers with the ability to model complex structures in 3D and analyze for varying load types (e.g., Gravity, Wind, Seismic). However, ETABS® cannot perform detailed design for concrete members to ACI-318, CSA A23.3, and, IS 456. This is where ReFRAME’s Afterburner: Column® program comes to the rescue.

ETABS Afterburner: Column® is a fully integrated post-processor. With the click of a few buttons it can connect to ETABS® to extract all user-defined material properties (concrete, rebar etc.) and analysis parameters (forces and geometry) and perform COMPLETE design code checks (Section Geometry, Rebar Detailing, Shear, Flexure, Torsion, Slenderness, Live Load Reduction and much more).

Furthermore, the design is deposited back into ETABS® for an updated model and further analysis. Additionally, the program can transfer all the section properties to REVIT®.
