Question
salam sir hope u will be fine and doing well.

sir my question is how to model an arch in etabs

regards

Answer
Dear Zain

In etabs the default model is a multi storey structure. When you need to model a non building structure, you will do like a building and reemove the extra members and add extra needed members. For instance you may suppose that an arch is a 10 storey building. You need to model the arch as a multiple sector structure with middle columns removed finally from the model.
