Title: Computer-Aided Design Tools in the Corps for Concrete Structures
Author(s): N. Rakhakrishnan and Robert J. Smith.
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 109-124

Abstract:Computers are becoming a day-to-day tool in the Corps of Engineers design offices for analyzing and designing concrete structures. These structures vary from specialized hydraulic structures, such as locks and dams, to conventional retaining walls and buildings. The Corps uses both general purpose, as well as special purpose, computer programs for the design/analysis of these structures. Many of the special purpose programs are developed under a very successful project called Computer-Aided Structural Engineering (CASE). The Corps is also active in performing research toward developing ideal engineering workstations for design engineers using microcomputers as tools. Some of the Corps' activities in these areas are highlighted.
