Abstract
Recent advances in Computer Technology applied to practical structural analysis of reinforced concrete building are summarised in this research presentation. The increasing speed of the desktop computers adding the new systems of cluster of PC's with parallel computing allow the structural engineers change the way to solve the analysis of RC structures for building. The effectivity on the new language programming (OOP) and the improvement in the network communications systems may possible to afford the resolution of the non-linear analysis system with a higher level of complexity using high performance computing.
