Description/Abstract

This paper is concerned with the recently published Eurocode 3: Part 1.1: General Rules and Rules for Buildings, the introduction of which has highlighted a problem facing the structural design community: the ability of engineers to quickly locate relevant information from lengthy and seemingly complex codes. Two solutions are proposed: the first involves restructuring Eurocode 3 into sections dealing with specific design tasks; the second applies hypertext software. Hypertext is a facility for creating computer-based documents that contain sophisticated search and reference facilities.
