The President: Do you discern any trends for the future, in either basic designs or detailing, owing to new methods of fabrication? At the same time, bearing in mind the multiplicity of factors involved, what uses do you see for computer programming of optimisation of design, which is currently exercising the minds of the academic world?
This paper aims to present a state-of-the-art review of the use of computers in RC detailing and scheduling. It concentrates on the various aspects of the use of computer programs and of their incorporation in the design process rather than on the merits of their engineering content. It finds that the reason for the number of such programs being small may be the difficulty and cost of initial adaptations to their use. Simon Bensasson
This paper describes the latest GENESYS developments in the field of reinforced concrete design and detail. In 1974, with the advent of a new design Code of practice, work commenced on rewriting the existing CP l14 'RC-BUILDING l' programs. The programs subsequently developed are now known as the GENESYS 'CP ll0 SUITE OF PROGRAMS'. Anthony Craddock
