EXPAN--An Integrated System for the Generation of Prefabricated Panel Wall Layout Design
Department of Architectural Science, University of Sydney
This thesis develops an integrated system to demonstrate the capabilities of those systems in aiding preliminary design. An existing CAD system, the Eagle modeling system, is used to control the graphic generation of the preliminary design. Some knowledge is written in a macro language conforming to the Eagle syntax requirements. An expert system shell written in C, the EXBUILD expert system shell, is used to control the expert system. The knowledge used by the expert system is written in production rules and frames conforming to the EXBUILD syntax requirements. The control over the whole system is primarily through Eagle with the integrated system running within the Eagle environment.
