Abstract : The decision process in structural design becomes increasingly important with the introduction of new materials. Starting from a consideration of present problems in structural design, an outline is developed for the decision process with particular emphasis on interaction between materials, structures, and design. This outline, however, still lacks the details which are required for an analytical model of the decision process. These missing details are identified and a practical approach toward their solution is shown. (Author)
