Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Analysis and Computation


The development of the electronic computational power of the computer has been a boon to the structural engineering profession. The resulting increases in the speed and efficiency of the analysis, design, and drafting of structural systems has been phenomenal. Some of the primary advantages of these new computational and graphical capabilities will be described, together with several notes of caution that must be recognized by the practicing structural engineer as a user of these space-age technologies.
