Modern computer facilities have provided a different approach to the design of reinforced concrete buildings. The design of cross-sections can be represented graphically, with interaction diagram. The whole process is therefore quicker, clearer and more economical. Parallel to this different way of cross-section design, the typization of cross-sections and simple reinforcement optimization is also provided.

This different design approach has been applied to a prototype of an interactive program system for the design of a frame-wall reinforced concrete building. The different stages of the analysis and cross-section design, linked within the system, are described. The output of system components is organized in such a way that it call be directly included into the design document.
