Interactive Design and Dealing of Structural Steelwork Constructions Using a Computer

A technique for the automatic and interactive design of connections in structural steelwork using a computer with visual display facilities is described. The program can deal with inclined, oblique and eccentric beams with welded end plates and high-strength friction-grip bolts. A design example is given to illustrate the facilities provided. The discussion includes an economic assessment which indicates that the cost of using the technique is low. M.G. Moore and D.M. Brotton
