The GLADYS computer system was developed in the London office of Ove Arup and Partners. The various programs and their method of operation are described, with particular emphasis on user language aspects and data checking. The use of the system over a period of 2 years is also described and analysed.

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

<h4>Reinforced Concrete Design Calculations Using Small Computers - DECIDE</h4>

Reinforced Concrete Design Calculations Using Small Computers - DECIDE

Some aspects of the design process, as applied to calculations for reinforced concrete structures, are considered. The benefits of an interactive system of design as a means of employing computers in this process are discussed and it is concluded that such a system requires only the use of a small computer. The DECIDE system, written specifically for small machines, is described briefly as an example of how design calculations for reinforced concrete may be written into an interactive system. A.W.
