Abstract

The design of a steel frame structure and its subsequent construction are coupled activities that both derive benefits from regular communication between designer, fabricator, and erector. This presentation describes plans for a software system that fosters this communication by integrating the activities of structural design and construction planning within the framework of a single genetic algorithm. The software is designed to offer incremental improvement suggestions that lower overall cost, considering initial material costs, fabrication and erection costs, and estimated lifetime seismic damage costs.
