Abstract

A general scheme is presented for the representation of structural design codes in the form of hypertext and expert systems. This scheme is employed for Eurocode No. 8, which contains the requirements for designing and erecting seismic-resistant structures. The main features of the system are presented with emphasis on the additional requirements for steel structures. The techniques employed can be generalised for other code-type documents and specifications. Moreover, such systems can be developed in parallel to the code document, providing a valuable tool to expert committees.
