A method of obtaining automated optimum cost design and detailing of continuous reinforced concrete girders serving as components of large structures is discussed and illustrated. The method has been successfully tested in automated optimum cost design of practical "one-way" solid slab, beam and girder, high-rise reinforced concrete buildings.
