The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) deals with the problems of modeling human intelligence. The application of AI to structural engineering has been limited, but potential applications are numerous. The paper discusses some potential applications by summarizing the state of the art techniques in AI from a structural engineering standpoint; and introducing efforts presently being undertaken by the authors to develop an 'Expert System' for preliminary structural design.
