Expert Systems in Structural Safety Assessment: Proceedings of an International Course October 2-4, 1989, Stuttgart, FRG

Overview

The volume combines tutorials covering basic elements of expert (or knowledge based) systems and practical building of the expert systems to be applied in structural engineering, with the lecture dealing with the various particular application sub-domains like corrosion, stress analysis, high temperature and other pressurized components, use of hypertext, etc. The book thus leads the reader from fundamentals of the theory to the very practice, offering him an opportunity to learn both what contribution can the ...

Overview

The volume combines tutorials covering basic elements of expert (or knowledge based) systems and practical building of the expert systems to be applied in structural engineering, with the lecture dealing with the various particular application sub-domains like corrosion, stress analysis, high temperature and other pressurized components, use of hypertext, etc. The book thus leads the reader from fundamentals of the theory to the very practice, offering him an opportunity to learn both what contribution can the expert system technology bring to the structural safety assessment and how it should be practically implemented. The book is primarily designed for engineers interested in expert systems, but readers from other fields will surely find there a useful summary of theoretical background and practical experience gathered by introducing expert systems into engineering practice.
