Abstract

Recently a microcomputer version of CALPAS 1 known as MICROPAS has been developed by the State of California. This paper describes an enhanced version of MICROPAS which we are calling QUIKPAS. This program uses the core algorithms of MICROPAS but the input and output sections have been restructured to facilitate user friendliness. The program was developed around a set of full screen input menus, where design parameters can easily be created, stored, replaced or changed to determine the effects of design alternatives. At any time during the input process the designer can ask for help if any entry is not understood; thus, program documentation is available on the screen, not just in a support manual. The program output, like the input, is menu driven so that the designer can select only that part of the output that is of interest. (Edited author abstract. )
