Abstract:

This report presents the findings of a study performed to provide a basis for the selection of a computerized representation of three-dimensional structures for the Computer-Aided Engineering and Architectural Design System CAEADS. The project was divided into four interlinked phases a Establishment of CAEADS requirements for a building and site description system b Identification of criteria against which potential candidate base systems can be evaluated c Survey of systems and techniques and d Evaluation of candidate systems. It was found that development of a three-dimensional geometric data base system to support CAEADS will be a complex task, but it is feasible. No existing software which exactly matches the requirements could be identified, but a range of feasible implementation strategies which make use of existing available software exists. Strategies based upon the OXSYS system Applied Research of Cambridge Ltd., the Evans and Sutherland Design System Evans and Sutherland Computer Corporation, and GLIDE Carnegie-Melon University are most highly recommended.
