Structural modeling (SM) refers to those modeling activities in which the intention of the modeler is to embody the geometric rather than the algebraic, and of describing form rather than calculating or measuring quantitative output. A structural model is a diagram which consists of a set of nodes and connections between the nodes. A number of tools have been developed to assist in building and analyzing stuctural models. An overview of selected structural modeling tools is presented. The… CONTINUE READING
