SP33 Examines three general aspects: (1) computer systems, (2) typical design applications, and (3) computer graphics applications. Written to give the reader an indication and appreciation of the trends in computer usage, the selected papers provide an overview of the contribution computers are making and perhaps more important, could be making to the practice of structural engineering in concrete. This comprehensive volume includes 17 papers covering: proportioning of concrete mixes; structural analysis of slabs, mass concrete, and machine foundations; design optimization; design of buildings, bridges, and beams; and an appendix listing computer program information available through ACI.
