SAP 2000

SAP stands for Structural Analysis Program which is used by Civil Engineers for the analysis and design of structures. SAP 2000 has both 2D and 3D features. Learn SAP 2000 at one of the best training center, IT Training Nepal located at Putalisadak, Kathmandu. SAP 2000 provides structural components which helps to design beam and column of the structure. Normally SAP 2000 is used for all types of general structures like residential building, stadiums, water tanks, chimneys and so on. In this course we will learn to do the analysis of residential building. Moreover SAP 2000 can be used to calculate the Seismic Weight and self weight of a building easily.


Anybody who is interested to learn structural analysis can join the course however mostly civil engineers and structural engineers who want to develop their career in structural analysis and design of buildings.are interested in this course.
