Development of an expert system to select the appropriate structural systems for large span structures

Abstract: The purpose of structural design is to create structures that respond to the requirements of function, aesthetics, serviceability, and constructability. In order to create, the designer must deal conceptually not only with a vast array of structural alternatives but also with the behaviour of these systems under varying load conditions. This paper introduces an interactive knowledge-based expert system for selection of appropriate structural systems for a particular project. The principles, methodology and implementation of the system are described. The system will be of particular use in the choice of the most effective structural solution for large span structures. The architectural demand and structural requirements of large span structures are explained. Knowledge-based expert systems, object-xiented developments and applications of expert systems in structural design are investigated. Related approaches and the most recent developed expert systems in this area are described and discussed. Finally. the approach adopted in the developed system and potential applications of the research are presented.
