An integrated system for design standards processing

Abstract:This paper describes an integrated model for the documentation, representation, and processing of design standards in a Computer AidedDesign (CAD) environment. We combine object-oriented and logic programming paradigms to provide a unified Object-Logic model to represent and process design standards. In this model, a designer can check the design for compliance with design provisions as well as perform component design. Furthermore, the Object-Logic model also allows checking the properties of completeness and uniqueness of design standards. Besides the Object-Logic representation, the framework includes the storageof background information such as commentaries of the design provisions in a HyperDocument environment. The Object-Logic and HyperDocument models are integrated into a unified framework. To demonstrate the feasibility and practicality of this framework, a prototype system has been implemented for the American Institute Steel Construction (AISC) Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) specification.
