The association of the graphics terminal with the digital computer has markedly affected the way structural analysis is taught to present undergraduates. The growth in the use of digital models has been accompanied by a decrease of interest in physical models especially when the digital results can be translated into pictures. The use of digital models in student instruction at Sydney over the past five years is described. The case is made that as a consequence, the graduate of the early eighties has a better grasp of structural principles than any of his predecessors. (TRRL)
