Abstract: This book contains papers presented at the Fifth Conference on Computing in Civil Engineering. Computer applications in specific disciplines are covered. These include construction engineering and management, structural design and analysis, hydraulics and hydrology, urban water resources, geotechnical engineering, transportation, and environmental engineering. Expert systems are discussed in depth with a special section on expert systems for construction. CAD selection and implementation, graphical and spreadsheet techniques, and parallel and supercomputing are covered. Other issues related to computer applications covered here include selection and management of computer resources, engineering workstations, liability and responsibility, and software piracy. Computer applications in engineering education are also reviewed.
