Arivte, a good tool for Civil engineers

clip_image001[3] is a community with much traffic that comes from Peru but its content has general interest in different civil engineering areas.

It’s a little complicated to access issues, because of its hierarchical format with forum and subforums which affects in content’s dispersion; but once registered and when the thread is found, the goal is to take advantage of that topics organization.

But if we don’t, just doing a simple search in Arivte we can find since an easy RapidShare link to a complete tutorial.

clip_image001[1]For example, one of the recent themes includes an entire document about structural design of a two-tier building using… impressive Etabs! Post attaches the dwg in plant and memory contains step-by-step full design complemented by inputs, suggestions and criticisms of Forum’s readers.

Here are the main themes so you can take a look … and a half plus, because it won’t be enough.
