Because the design of concrete structures and proportioning concrete mixtures can be complex, you need state-of-the-art knowledge when selecting structural systems and construction materials. Computer Applications in Concrete Technology has been especially prepared to aid designers and engineers in all facets of concrete design and technology. Providing a source of "know-how" for the entire civil engineering community, this symposium volume of 13 papers covers a broad spectrum of computer applications. Some of the subjects include: expert systems for selecting concrete constituents, analysis of reinforced concrete shear walls, analysis and design of load-bearing tilt-up walls, decision support systems for design, and spreadsheet programming for structural design. Other topics include: monitoring construction with microcomputers as you build, analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete compression members using desktop computers, and integrated design environment for concrete structures.
