Conference information: Fifth International Conference (V-ICCCBE) | Anaheim, California, United States | June 7-9, 1993

Document Type: Book - Proceedings


This proceeding consists of papers presented at the Fifth International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering held in Anaheim, California, June 7-9, 1993. The proceedings cover five major areas of concern: 1) Computing in construction, 2) geographic information systems, 3) expert systems and artificial intelligence, 4) computing in structures, and 5) computing in transportation. Within these broad topics, subjects such as: 1) Computer analysis of cable-stayed bridges; 2) artificial intelligence in highway CAD systems; 4) automted systems for construction bidding; 5) effect of automation on construction changes; 6) optimal seismic design of structures; and 7) CAD instruction for civil engineering students. The book also presents several papers discussing different aspects of multimedia information systems and geographic information systems.
