This volume covers the proceedings of a conference which provided a forum for the coherent examination and exchange of ideas on aspects of automation of the design and manufacture of complex systems important in heavy industries. Subjects covered included aspects of sculptured shape representation and interrogation in a computer environment, automated analysis, procedural modelling of objects for design and fabrication, tolerances and forming of plates with adaptive control. Also discussed were issues of design and fabrication of composite materials. The following papers are included in this publication: 1. Automation of design and manufacturing in heavy industries. M.J. Wozny pp. 3-36. 2. Shape representation of sculptured objects: the fairness of curves and surfaces. G. Farin and N. Sapidis pp. 39-57. 3. Generalized cylinders and their use in design and fabrication. J. Pegna pp. 59-79. 4. Shape interrogation. N.M. Patrikalakis pp. 83-103. 5. On discretization in adaptive finite element analysis. K.-J. Bathe and S.-W. Chae pp. 105-146. 6. Procedural models for design and fabrication. J. R. Rossignac, et al. pp. 147-175. 7.
