DEVELOPMENT AND RELEVANCE OF SOFTWARE IN CIVIL ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION

ABSTRACT
A significant revolution with computers’ usage in civil engineering business and construction process has been presented. Computers reduce all the extensive work specifically through the introduction of programs and software. Lately, software development has effectively contributed in various civil engineering disciplines, as it provides engineers with the ability to perform variety of complex calculations, modeling, drafting, designing practice and several analysis processes for civil engineering infrastructure.
 Many commercial companies that provide users with thousands of software are available today in the markets. However, the recent requirement is to select the suitable software that can perform multi engineering tasks efficiently and satisfy more specific users ‘demands. In this regard, this paper presents lists of common software that is used in civil engineering field with their contributions in civil engineering applications.
Keywords: Analysis processes, Civil engineering disciplines, Computers’ usage, Contributions, Software development.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 General Introduction
Software plays a central role in almost all aspects of daily life. It can be defined as the instructions, which provide functional of the program that requires performing a specific type of data processing in a professional manner to accomplish a task, the number size and application domains of computer programs have grown dramatically. As a result, hundred billion are being spent on software development and the live hood and live of most people depends on the effectiveness of this development.
Recently, many software developer companies are available in the international markets such as: Auto desk, Bentley system, S-FRAME software Inc. Geo-slope international limited, Sollvision systems limited etc. These companies provide variety of software packages exclusively for different disciplines of civil engineering that serve design, construction and operation of the world’s infrastructure. Engineers, architects, constructors and owner-operators are practicing their work in specialized subsets in civil engineering like geotechnical, structural, hydraulic, transportation. Environmental engineering project and construction management, land surveying comprehensive engineering and architecture software solution for construction and the sustaining activities.
