Often, a traditional design procedure is used wherein a designer sketches results which are based on computer applications and transmits this information via hard copy to a drafter, who re-enters it into a CAD system. The inefficiencies are clear and an obvious opportunity exists for productive gain. Recently, an existing design application, BRASS-GEOMETRY, used for the computation of screed elevation and horizontal geometry for straight bridges and curved bridges. The technical aspects of this program were written and are maintained by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Using the UWGRAPH library, the University of Wyoming linked the program with additional procedures to automatically produce CAD files. UWGRAPH links to three graphic formats commonly used in engineering: DXF (AutoCAD), MICRO-CSL (Intergraph), and GKS (screen graphics) in one application program. The information required to use BRASS-GEOMETRY is described.
