Structural Engineering in Cyberspace: Enabling Information and Communications Technologies

Increasingly, structural engineers are required to work in virtual construction project teams which are not collocated. In many cases, these transient project teams (which collaborate for relatively short periods in the design and construction of a facility) are geographically distributed in locations which span several continents and time zones. In these situations, information and communications technologies have an important role to play. This paper reviews the newer and emergent information and communications technologies which structural engineers need to appropriate as they seek to operate in the evolving cyberspace. C.J. Anumba and A. Duke
