Abstract:

This tutorial describes version 3.00 of the computer program CASM, which is designed to aid the structural engineer in the preliminary design and evaluation of structural building systems by the use of three-dimensional interactive graphics. CASM is a preliminary structural design program that incorporates a Structural Planning philosophy. Structural Planning is the study of structural system alternatives within the context of each projects unique set of program criteria. The goal of structural planning, and thus CASM, is to select the most appropriate, efficient, and economical structural system which satisfies established program criteria while integrating the mechanical requirements and complementing the intended aesthetics.
