dc.description.abstract Immersive Virtual Environment (VE) technology has found varying applications in different fields of science and engineering. While there exist several areas in structural engineering that can benefit from the use of Immersive VE technology there is a general lack of these applications in the structural engineering domain. One of the main reasons for this is the high degree of familiarity with a host of low level hardware and software technology required on the part of the designer. In this work we have developed a conceptual framework for developing tools that present Immersive VE designers in the structural engineering domain with a high level interface that hides the low level details. A sample implementation of this framework designed to use the CAVE/ImmersaDesk systems was also developed. Finally the effectiveness and applicability of the implementation was tested by designing two trial implementations.
