SPIDetail has the possibility to prepare joists table of the structure in two methods. Such a table is made either from the existing structure model in ETABS® (Model Mode) or independent of the structure model and based on the information the user provides (Table Mode). In model mode, it is supposed that the designer uses Filled Deck elements to define joists in ETABS® model. In this regard, SPIDetail evaluates joists load based on Filled Deck information in ETABS®. In table mode, however, all the required parameters for designing and detailing joists are set manually by the user.
In model mode, all joists in the project are designed and detailed automatically. Different floor layouts and tables consisting all joists of that floor are prepared, and the amount of rebars for each floor is separately presented in another table.
