Review of Progress in Computer Uses for the Design of Structural Steelwork

There has been an increasing interest in the past decade in the use of computers for the design of structures. The rapid increase in computer technology has encouraged this interest and provided a stimulus for the development of programs that can be made available on the engineer3 desk. This paper presents a review of the current position from the point of view of the engineer seeking to gain information. It indicates the limitations of computer applications, gives some guidance on the types of program available, and considers possible future developments. A. Weller
