Abstract:

This is one in a series of three manuals designed to instruct in the use of the Computer Aided Structural Modeling CASM computer program. The manuals are composed of flowcharts which show step-by-step procedures for executing a broad range of CASM capabilities. CASM is a computer program designed to aid the structural engineer in the preliminary design and evaluation of structural building systems by the use of three-dimensional 3-D interactive graphics. This manual contains one of three different framing schemes for the same 1-2 story office building. The examples contain a complete range of capabilities to permit framing comparisons, including 3-D geometry modeling, criteria specifications, development of loads snow, wind, seismic, dead, and live, drawing structural elements, preliminary analysis and design of structural elements, and quantity take-offs.
