Information Technology for Structural Engineering

Aspects of information technology in which major developments can be expected in the construction industry are communications, information systems, models and simulations, monitoring of building performance and reactive or ‘intelligent’ buildings. The development of domain knowledge models is anticipated. These with the associated databases, expert systems and algorithms will provide the problem-orientated information systems necessary to link professional activities. Information technology in design, the process of construction and the management of buildings is expected to change both the activities of the construction industry and its products. Geoffrey Hutton
