summary The decisions made at the early stages of design that generally take place in the architectural office have phenomenal effects on many aspects of building, including the structural form, the mechanical and electrical services, the construction planning, and the overall cost of the project. It is of prime importance that the effect of decisions which an architect makes in the initial stages of building design can be assessed; particularly vital is the influence of changes made in the spatial arrangement of building floors. The earlier in the design process these effects are studied, the better the later difficulties can be avoided.

A programme of research is in progress to provide a computer-aided learning tool for students of architecture so that they become familiar with the process of structural design, and examine the effects of the decisions they make at the initial stages of design on the structure of the building. It is also educative to observe how the architectural design of a building may be influenced by its structural arrangement. It is intended that the user acquire a general understanding of how steel structures behave.
