Discussion on the Economics of Steelwork Design by F.H. Needham

Discussion on the Economics of Steelwork Design by F.H. Needham

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?

A State-of-the-art Review of Computer Programs for the Detailed Design of Reinforced Concrete

A State-of-the-art Review of Computer Programs for the Detailed Design of Reinforced Concrete

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

We have mentioned in earlier issues the lapse of time there is between the copy for this column leaving our desk and its appearance in the Journal. It has been 3 months in the past, with the result that, from the time a correspondent writes his letter until the time he sees a reply to it from another reader, at least 6 months have gone by. Thanks to the cooperative attitude of our printers it is hoped that these intervals can be reduced to 2 and 4 months respectively; not quite up to Wimbledon standards of stroke and counter, but a great improvement which it is hoped you will find agreeable.
