Genesys - an Attempt to Rationalise the Use of Computers in Structural Engineering

PART 1 THE NEED FOR A SYSTEM Synopsis This is the first part of a paper describing the computing system called GENESYS; it attempts to show that this system could do much to rationalise the use of computers in structural engineering. The functions of a national organisation known as the GENESYS CENTRE are briefly introduced. The main features of the computing system are presented and its uses are discussed from the points of view of the engineer, fhe programmer and the computer manager. D.G. Alcock and B.H. Shearing
