INTERACTIVE DESIGN AND DETAILING OF STRUCTURAL STEELWORK CONNECTIONS USING A COMPUTER

A technique for the automatic and interactive design of connections in structural steelwork using a computer with visual display facilities is described. The program can deal with inclined, oblique and eccentric beams with welded end plates and high-strength friction-grip bolts. A design example is given to illustrate the facilities provided. The discussion includes an economic assessment which indicates that the cost of using the technique is low.
