Abstract:

Recognizing a need for improving automatic data processing ADP capabilities in the geotechnical field, the Office, Chief of Engineers, requested the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to conduct a study to determine if geotechnical elements in the Corps of Engineers CE thought an upgrading of their ADP capabilities was needed and, if so, exactly what type of effort would be most beneficial. The first phase of this study consisted of a survey of various representative CE District and Division offices to investigate the state of the art in computer usage among CE geotechnical elements and compile what they considered to be their greatest needs. This report presents the results of that study. Based on the results of this survey, an upgrading in the area of geotechnical computer applications is apparently needed and desired by the majority of CE District and Division offices. Efforts toward accomplishing this should be directed toward increasing capabilities in the areas of a data-base management, b interactive graphics and plotting, and c technology transfer. Author
