Integrated Computer Aided Structural Design of Buildings

This paper discusses some principles and describes some experiments in the development of an integrated system for the computer aided structural design of buildings aimed towards: -including as wide as possible a span of design activities -linking the various design activities such that data generated at any stage can be used directly in the stages that follow -developing a mode of use in which the designer is firmly in control of the process, i.e. the software plays a supportive role in the design. Professor I.A. MacLeod and M.Y. Rafiq
