Computing in Analysis and Design in Structural Engineering Education, Practice and Registration - A Rationale for Dialogue

by Subhash C. Anand, (F.ASCE), Clemson Univ, Clemson, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Analysis and Computation

Abstract: Structural analysis and design are increasingly being taught using personal computers, workstations or mainframe computers at the universities. The structural engineering designs in small and large consulting firms are carried out using computers to varying degrees. The examinations given by the National Council for professional registration, on the other hand, have no components which can utilize computers. This state of affairs in structural engineering education, practice and registration could be detrimental for the structural engineering profession unless an active communication exists between the three groups. This session provides such a mechanism for dialogue through short presentations and a panel discussion.
