Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to develop a computer system which will enable designs to be checked for conformity with design and test codes of practice before or after an analysis with a Finite Element program. The system will accept data from three different sources:

Specifications will be developed enabling the implementation of new codes, suitable quality assurances, knowledge bases, standard databases and expert systems. A set of international design and test codes of practice will be incorporated into the system, covering a wide spectrum of applications, including construction, mechanical engineering, transport, capital goods manufacturing (pressure vessels, boilers, etc) and civil engineering (large dams). Mainly, the European Design Codes of practice (EUROCODES) are considered.

Exploitation

The project partners plan to use and exploit the commercial products developed from the results of the project by marketing them to users of finite element modelling programs; they also plan to increase the number of designs and test codes of practice included in the system. Furthermore, procedures and specifications developed in the project will be suitable to be used in the other development and/or departments.
