This volume contains the papers presented at the 1989 Structures Congress sponsored by the Structural Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers that deal directly with the application of modern computers to the solution of structural engineering problems. They cover a broad spectrum of topics such as knowledge based systems, finite element technology, idealized models, and computer applications in structural controls for seismic excitations. Collectively, these papers represent both the state-of-the-art as well as the state-of-the-practice in structural engineering computing.
