A Computer Aided Drafting System for Detailing Reinforced Concrete

This paper describes a computer aidedrafting system designed specifically to produce general arrangement plans and rein forcement details for floor slabs, together with bending and cutting schedules and quantities of the reinforcement. It is designed for use by draftsmen with little knowledge of computing procedures and has no restrictions on floor layouts or hole positions. It is a particular application of a general system that can be applied to the location and scheduling of any items that are normally specified on building plans, and that has also been extended to items, such asprecast concrete units, that are best specified and located in terms of three dimensions rather than two. The instruction menus used in the system are described in detail. G.M.J. Williams and T. J. Parsons
