Computing in Analysis and Design in Structural Engineering - An Educator's Point of View

by John F. Fleming, Univ of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Analysis and Computation


The use of the computer in structural engineering education is discussed. It is emphasized that the students must have an understanding of both the analysis process and the behavior of structural systems under various conditions before they can effectively use the computer as an analysis and design tool. It is not sufficient for the students to merely know how to create the input data file for the particular program that they are using.
