LUCID - An Aid to Structural Detailing

After a brief introduction, the reasons are described for setting up LUCID, a joint venture between Loughborough University and over 100 firms in the construction industry, whose aim is to reduce detailing costs. A general discussion of standard details is followed by a description of LUCID standard details and an outline of the overall project development plan. A description of the first, or manual, phase of LUCID to be introduced into design offices is followed by an outline of the possible plans for the future computer phase. Some factors which influence the form of design and detailing systems are then examined and the relationship between LUCID and other systems is described. Development and operating costs are indicated, and the final section estimates the savings in detailing costs that can be expected from the manual phase. L.L. Jones
