INTRODUCTION TO DESIGN
 
Lecture 1B.1: Process of Design
OBJECTIVE/SCOPE 
T
o introduce the challenge of creative design and to explain approaches by which it may beachieved.
PREREQUISITES 
A general knowledge of basic applied mechanics is assumed and prior encouragement should begiven to read J E Gordon's three books [1,2,3].
RELATED LECTURES 
Since this lecture deals with the process of design in general terms almost all other lectures arerelated to it in some way.
T
hose sections which are most closely associated with it are1B:Introduction to Design,14: Structural Systems: Buildings,15A: Structural Systems: Offshore,15B: Structural Systems: Bridges, and15C: Structural Systems: Miscellaneous 
SUMMARY 
T
he lecture begins by considering a definition of design and some objectives. It discusses how adesigner can approach a new problem in general and how a structural designer can develop astructural system. It concludes by considering differences of emphasis in design approach for different classes of structure.
1. DESIGN OBJECTIVES
T
he results of successful design in structural engineering can be seen and used by everyone, seeFigure 1.
 
 
T
he question is: how can professional designers be developed and eventually produce better designs than those previously encountered, to benefit and enhance the performance of humanactivities? In particular how can steel be utilised effectively in structures for:
y
 
travelling more easily over awkward terrain, requiring bridges.
y
 
enabling basic industrial processes to function requiring, for example, machinery supports,docks and oil rig installations.
y
 
aiding communications, requiring masts.
y
 
enclosing space within buildings, as in Figure 2.
