Knowledge Representation issues in structural engineering: a framework for application in the case of structures in healthcare

0
We survey the literature on Applications of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Techniques to Structural Engineering. We focus on the aspects related to healthcare: Hospitals and Structures related to accidents and emergencies, which are actors of the healthcare system. The conclusions of the review are three: focus is necessarily on actual systems for industrial uses; there are three trends emerging in recent investigations in the field: ontological foundations, collaboration management and soft computing; these are the basis for the a 'new' discipline: Structurotics. The investigation is ended with an example in a concrete application in the field of Tunnel Upgrade.

Keywords: knowledge representation, knowledge management, data mining, ontology, healthcare structures, hospitals, solid mechanics, structural engineering, reasoning techniques, accident and emergencies, A&, amp, E, collaboration management, soft computing, tunnel upgrading
