The purpose of this study is to develop computer grograms which can be used to determine immediately the economic member size of reinforced concrete structures, to integrate structural analysis, analysis plotting, member design, cost estimation, and drawing work into one working system, and to develop final drawing which can be used directly on construction sites by computer aided design system. This study will substantially contribute to the advancement of design technology by improving structural design as a speedy precision work, by accumulating design technology, and by facilitating the use of CAD system for structural design. The computer programs are developed for structure analysis, analysis plotting, member design, cost estimation, and structural drawing for frame structures as one working system. They are developed on the basis of the practical equations for member sections obtained from the analyses of economic sizes of individual structural elements. The design criteria for reinforced concrete structures are based on working stress design methods and ultimate strength methods. The first part presents the purpose, implications, and scope of this study and the methodology used for this study. The next part presents the assumptions used for estimating member section sizes of reinforced concrete structures, structural analysis of frames, member design and cost estimation for frames, analysis of economic sizes of individual elements of R.C. structures, and the methods of preparing structural drawing for R.C. structures by utilizing CAD system.
