The Computer-Aided Structural Modeling (CASM) computer program is designed to aid the structural engineer in the preliminary design and evaluation of structural building systems by the use of three-dimensional (3-D) interactive graphics. CASM allows the structural engineer to quickly evaluate various framing alternatives in order to make more informed decisions in the initial structural evaluation process. The program was developed by the Information Technology Laboratory in conjunction with the Computer-Aided Structural Engineering (CASE) Project, Building Systems Task Group. This release of the CASM is designed to aid the user with design criteria, building loads, and structural framing and design. The various parts of the program are summarized below. (a) Basic design criteria. The user can enter information directly or retrieve information from a user-definable database. The design criteria include information about the project, regional design information, and site-specific design information. (b) Building geometry. The user can assemble the building shape using 3-D primitives (cubes, prisms, spheres, cylinders, etc.) in an easy manner using pulldown menus, icons, and a mouse.
