Wanted: A larger, different kind of box

Abstract [en]

To have the ability to "think outside the box" is generally regarded as something positive. At a moment in time when resources are scarce, and the problems facing us are many, innovation and professional excellence becomes a requirement, rather than a matter of choice. At the core of our attempts to come up with new, and better solutions are the digital technologies. Within the structural engineering context, the different types of off-the-shelf packages for finite element analysis play a central role. These "black-box" types of software packages exemplify how user friendliness may have harmful consequences within a field where knowledge and the successful mastery of relevant skills is key, and consequently- ignorance may lead to fatal results. These tools make any effort "venturing outside" difficult to achieve. A technical paradigm shift is called for that places learning and creative, informed exploration at the heart of the user experience.
