    Interactive computer graphics for computer aided design in civil engineering



    Interactive computer graphics can be an effective and efficient aid in the analysis/design cycle of engineering problems. The vistas of much engineering research and design can be expanded with the tools and methodology available with the introduction of an interactive computer graphics (ICG) system into an academic or industrial environment. Specific attention is given in this paper to new areas of application of ICG in civil engineering; guidelines for the planning of ICG systems; practical applications in bridge design and shipbuilding; and economic considerations involved in using ICG systems.
