The usage of computer technologies have revolutionized the practice of structural engineering during the past thirty years. The advent of multimedia technologies within computer hardware and software will continue this trend. However, unlike previous computerization in engineering which focused on the analysis and design of complex structures, multimedia will also be useful for many other business applications beyond analysis and design. This paper defines multimedia, its context to structural engineering, and reports on ways in which multimedia can enhance the engineering process.
