Title: Integrated Design Environment for Concrete Structures

Abstract:Presents a new computer design environment that allows the designer complete freedom in choosing design options. It combines three common tools--analysis, graphics, and a spreadsheet--into a completely integrated system. The environment allows the designer to take results directly from the analysis database, display them graphically, choose the values to be used for design, and then insert those values automatically into the spreadsheet environment. The spreadsheet can be customized, through the use of templates, to fit any design scheme. A template for the design of singly reinforced concrete beams is presented.
