INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
ON
THE USE OF COMPUTERS IN ENGINEERING


9-10 NOVEMBRO 1998


FACULDADE DA CIDADE

IBERO-LATIN AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR
COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING


RIO DE JANEIRO, BRASIL



OBJECTIVES

Computer technology is used extensively in engineering today, performing
from very simple analysis to very sophisticated design tasks. The
continuous improvement in capacity and power and the reduction in costs,
related to computer technology certainly contribute to that effect. A
similar contribution is due to the proliferation of low-cost engineering
software.

Productive use of computers in engineering started during the 1960s,
with the introduction of third generation computers and the development
of effective computational methods, such as the finite element
technique. Initially most computer usage was performed at universities,
mostly in research activities. Computers were very expensive and
commercial software practically non- available. Professional
applications were few, usually performed by specialists, as partial
tasks of the design cycle. Then, during the 1970s and 1980s the price of
computers started to decrease rapidly, commercial software was developed
and offered and computational techniques were introduced in the academic
curricula. As a result, the use of computers grew considerably. However,
engineering applications were still mostly in the hands of engineers
with specific training, using mainframes and workstations.

During the l990s a drastic transformation in the application of
computers in engineering takes place, particularly due to the personal
computers becoming a device having the capacity and power necessary to
develop professional applications. The cost of hardware becomes very
low, the cost of engineering software is considerably reduced and
man-machine interaction takes place through colorful menus orienting the
user how to proceed. In addition, there is a clear tendency towards a
strong automation of the computer engineering design process, from
initial conceptual design to automatic preparation of fabrication
drafts.

As a result of the developments outlined above, the use of computers in
engineering has become standard, adopting a universal character. It is
to be noticed, however, that children to play electronic games at home
using the same machines employed by their fathers to develop engineering
design! But engineering is not a game; it is a very serious activity,
which must be carried out by knowledgeable and responsible engineers,
applying adequate techniques through the use of effective and reliable
hardware/software tools. Is that really the case now?

This International Seminar will focus on the danger of improper
application of computers in engineering, and will attempt to propose
some basic solutions to the current problems. lt is oriented to the
educator responsible for engineering curricula, to the developer
responsible for the quality of engineering software, and particularly to
the practicing engineer, who must be able to identify proper and
efficient hardware/software tools for his job, acquire adequate
training, and possess the relevant knowledge both for effective modeling
and solution validation.
