REINFORCED CONCRETE DESIGN CALCULATIONS USING SMALL COMPUTERS - DECIDE

Some aspects of the design process, as applied to calculations for reinforced concrete structures, are considered. The benefits of an interactive system of design as a means of employing computers in this process are discussed and it is concluded that such a system requires only the use of a small computer. The Decide system, written specifically for small machines, is described briefly, as an example of how design calculations for reinforced concrete may be written into an interactive system. /Author/TRRL/
