CASM stands for Computer Aided Structural Modeling. It is a program designed to aid the structural engineer in the preliminary design and evaluation of structural building systems by the use of 3-D interactive graphics. Think of this program as a scratch pad for the structural decision process that would have been done on paper before you went to the computer to do the final numerical analysis of structural members. CASM will let you change your mind quickly and give you results that previously might have taken hours to obtain. By allowing quick changes, CASM allows you to make more informed decisions in the initial structural evaluation process. The purpose of this manual is to help you understand the CASM program. The CASM program is designed by structural engineers for structural engineers. Its purpose is to help solve those basic early problems that all engineers face when trying to fit a structural system into a building.
