Abstract : Presented under this cover are the agenda of the conference, abstracts of the technical presentations, a description of exhibits displayed, a list of attendees, and an evaluation of the conference by the participants. Training and demonstration sessions were in integral part of this conference. The training sessions were conducted to review recently published and draft design guides and manuals. The training was aimed at providing instructions on the use of and receiving constructive comments on these instructive materials. The demonstrations presented as introductions to computer programs developed under the Computer-Aided Structural Engineering Project, created additional interest in CASE. Sponsored by the Engineering Division, Engineering and Construction Directorate of the Office, Chief of Engineers, US Army (OCE), the conference provided for the exchange of structural engineering experience in project design and construction, methods of structural analysis, and remedial measures. A further purpose of the conference was for review of OCE-sponsored structural training and demonstration sessions.
