Title: Large-Scale, Integrated Reinforced
Concrete Design System
Author(s): Lawrence F. Kahn and Michael H. Swanger
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 7-15
Keywords: computer programs; computers; reinforced
concrete; structural analysis; structural design.
Abstract:The use of many individual small programs running on a microcomputer is compared with the use of a large-scale, integrated system for reinforced con-crete design Microprograms require considerable bookkeeping by the engineer and may limit design freedom. Integrated systems combine analysis and floor/beam/column design so that the machine handles the data. While microcomputer systems are beneficial, overall engineering productivity may be enhanced by use of integrated programs.*
