Estimating and Interpreting Results
A complex structure can be designed either by a strict calculation or by good fortune, or by implementing a traditional project. When manual methods of design were common, the strict calculation used to be hardly possible. The good fortune is not a thing to rely upon, it seems. So one used to adopt traditional approaches the reliability of which had been tried by a long lasting experience. But now the situation is quite different.
