AUTOMATIC ANALYZER FOR ITERATIVE DESIGN.
ILLINOIS UNIV URBANA DEPT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
The advent of high-speed computers has provided the structural engineer with improved analytical capabilities to cope with the highly complex problem of structural synthesis. The goal of the study is to investigate the possibility of integrating an automatic analyzer into an iterative design process more effectively by a incorporating partial reanalysis techniques into the methods of solution, so that the performance of the current trial design can be determined by utilizing the information gained in the previous cycle of analysis and b providing quantitative data pertaining to the rate of change of the response quantities of the structure due to modifications of various design parameters.
