Question
AOA,sir how etabs takes into acount shrinkage and creep analysis. i have found no option for doing time dependent analysis?guide me

Answer
Dear Saleem

As I know you would study on influence of creep and shrinkage on physical parameters of concrete and also on its plastic time dependent deflection and consider them on your design . Then you cant have a matrix analysis but a pre analysis investigation on your concrete properties. In bulk structures creep and shrinkage would produce stresses which may be simulated with thermal analysis. As a whole I suggest you to follow a dummy thermal analysis instead of any sophisticated complicated analysis.
