The Portland Cement Association decided about five years ago to undertake the programming effort needed for the design of concrete structures and pavements.
Manoranjan Das, Kanchit Malaivongs, and R.B.L. Smith
A simple computer program is described for the yield line solution of isotropic and orthotropic reinforced concrete slabs based on a simplex routine. It is illustrated by examples and it is used to compare the effects of simplifications to the yield line patterns. It is available in Fortran and Atlas autocode versions.
Presents general computer programs for determining the ultimate load for any type of reinforced concrete indeterminate structure by using the limit state design procedure suggested by Baker.
James A. Barker, Martin L. Moody and Chuan C. Feng
A computer program is developed which will check reinforced concrete beam designs against the ACI 318-63 Code and print out warnings of any violations. At present the routine to check the flexure and bond requirements for rectangular beams is complete.
Randbir S. Sandhu and Edward L. Wilson
A ditigal computer program using the finite element method for stress and displacement analysis of mass concrete structures is developed allowing for incremental construction, temperature changes, creep and different elastic and creep properties in tension and compression.
John P. Anderson and C.Raymond Hays
Vibration problems occuring in machine foundation systems are described and three case histories illustrating typical problems of this sort in the design of compressor foundations are discussed.
V.M. Malhotra and P.D. Hibbert
This paper describes the use of a ditigal computer in the design of concrete mixes for large construction projects.
Carl Berwanger and Takashi Fujii
This paper presents an optimaization procedure, for the design of reinforced concrete structures, that employs linear programming in its solution. The objective funtion may take the form of a linear weight or cost relationship for the structure.
Stanley W. Woods and Leon J. Schuchardt
This paper describes and discusses the utilization of computer and plotter by the Wisconsin Bridge Section for producing designs and engineering drawings of bridge abutments and box culverts. Development of existing systems and planned systems is discussed.
Stanley Dean Lindsey, Jack Richard Horner and William H. Rowan, Jr.
Modern computer developments have brought the digital computer to the engineer's fingetips by means of a remote console connection with a time sharing computer system. It is the purpose of this paper to analyze the adaption of such calculation capacity to the design problems imposed upon the engineer.
