A construction-led design process for tubular trusses

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper describes a process for the design of tubular steel trusses using a construction-led approach. This process does not aim at automating the design of this type of structure, rather it aims at facilitating knowledge-aided design whereby the designer is fully in charge of design decisions aided by knowledge about the effect of these decisions on construction of a structure. © 1994.
