Developing a multimedia courseware in structural engineering

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A project is underway to develop a courseware for a typical first course in structural steel design in civil or architectural engineering programs. The software, called Steel Design Educational Module (SteelDEM), is a Windows-based intelligent tutor and teaching aid that utilizes the state-of-the-art in multimedia to enhance teaching/learning of design and development of steel structures. The module integrates full motion video, computer graphics, animations, text, and audio to allow users to investigate different structural steel members and their behavior, limit states, and design. The online database of structural steel shapes, and the design specifications and aids from the American Institute of Steel Construction manual are available to users.
