Abstract: This paper describes applications of client-server models, interprocess communications (IPC), and concepts of intelligent CAD (ICAD) to the interactive design and analysis of highway bridge structures. The name of our prototype implementation is XBUILD - XBUILD operates in a client server mode, the server being a finite element program that accepts requests for finite element analyses from client pre- and post-processors. The client and server are connected via Interprocess Communications, and communicate by message passing. This paper describes the model we have developed for the message passing.
