Abstract

The publication describes the possibilities of using hypermedia for supporting engineering design systems. The application selected to test the hypermedia ideas was fatigue analysis. The first prototype of a fatigue handbook was developed. In addition the possibility of combining hypermedia and expert system ideas into a fatigue expert system is reported. Hypermedia is an electronic document in which information is stored in a network of nodes connected by links. Nodes can contain text, graphics, photos, music, speech, animation and video. References between nodes are possible through links. Links need not to be in sequential order so nodes can be accessed in a non-linear fashion. Hypermedia's underlying notion of linking nodes of information and its capability to handle these information entities stored in various forms appear to be well suited for engineering design support systems. Especially in those engineering design systems where exists a great demand for representing graphical information in a convenient way. This can be realized using hypermedia tools that are based on hypermedia techniques. Applications created this way are called hypermedia applications.
