Numerical, symbolic and heuristic methods

Josip Dvornik

Abstract

An overview of computer use is given and, at that, an emphasis is placed on the use of computers in engineering mechanics and structural design. It is stressed that numerical, symbolic and heuristic methods, but also those based on "artificial intelligence", are mostly suited for computer use. Various graphical representations are also mentioned but are not separately analyzed. It is emphasized that, although numerical methods are still in leading position, an increase has been noted in the use of other methods which are gaining terrain year after year.

Keywords
numerical methods, computer, symbolic methods, heuristic methods, "artificial intelligence" methods
