Conference information: Second Congress in conjunction with A/E/C Systems '95 | Atlanta, Georgia, United States | June 5-8, 1995

Abstract: These proceedings consist of papers presented at the Second Congress on Computing in Civil Engineering held in Atlanta, Georgia, June 5-8, 1995. The proceedings cover major areas of concern: 1) databases; 2) expert systems and artificial intelligence; 3) computing in construction; 4) computers in civil engineering education; 5) computing in transportation; 6) geographic information systems; 7) computing in structures; 8) environmental and hydraulic engineering; and 9) computing in geotechnical engineering. Within these broad topics, the book contains papers on subjects such as: 1) Evolutionary systems and genetic algorithms; 2) neural networks in construction and transportation; 3) pen computing; 4) GIS for geotechnical and earthquake engineering; 5) graphical user interfaces; and 6) object-oriented programming. Additionally, the book contains papers addressing current uses of computers in civil engineering undergraduate education and the impact of multimedia information of civil engineering education.
