ETABS Version 9.2.0

No Comments

ETABS Version 9.2.0 is now shipping and is available as a full installation or as a patch to existing installations. It includes the following significant enhancements:

New In V9.2.0

A printed report is now available for steel and concrete frame design. This report is produced in RTF format for Microsoft Word, and contains a cover page, tables of design input values, tables of design results, and an individual design summary sheet for each selected member.
Concrete frame design output for enveloping results has been improved to include, in a single sheet, the controlling forces/moment, stations, and load combinations, as well as the resulting rebar and/or demand/capacity ratios. This is available by right-clicking on the member for design results, or as part of the new printed design report.
The documentation available using the Help > Documentation command can now be modified by the user. This allows you to add company standards and procedures, project data, language translations, and other documents in a single location for ease of reference.
The “Automated Lateral Loads Manual” has been added which describes all the code-based seismic and wind loads available in ETABS and SAP2000.

ArcSDE 8 for Oracle

No Comments

ArcSDE technology is a core element of ArcGIS Server. Its primary role is to act as the database access engine to spatial data within a relational database management system (RDBMS). ArcSDE technology provides geospatial behavior, integrity, and utility to the underlying records of the geodatabase. The geodatabase is the primary data storage model for ArcGIS. It sits on top of the RDBMS and provides a single central location to access and manage spatial data.
