Computer Aided Detailing in the Structural Steelwork Industry

This paper outlines experience of using computers to assist the production of information required to fabricate structural steel. The computer aided production system (CAPS) is now widely used by the UK steel fabricating industry. The system has been developed to the point where it can handle the very diverse requirements of different fabricating companies and the wide variety of irregular connections encountered in steel frames.
