Discussion on Computer Applications for Detailed Design Calculations of Reinforced Concrete Structures by Simon Bensasson, Anthony Craddock, D.D. Croft and A. W. Beeby

Dr. M. R. Hollington (M) (Cement and Concrete Association): I feel that my knowledge of computers is at the WL/8 stage, but nevertheless, during the past couple of years, I have become involved in the development of a system for producing reinforced concrete details by using a plotter. Today’s speakers have been talking about various methods for producing calculations, and Mr Craddock described how his program will produce the calculations and go right the way through to the drawings. We have tackled the problem from completely the other end and have looked at the drawing stage to see what a computer can do in this area.
