隨著現代科技之進步，行動裝置的技術趨於成熟與穩定，普及率愈來愈高的時代，人們仰賴行動裝置的程度也相對提升許多。因此，衍生出了許多具有功能性的應用程式（Mobil Application，App），提供給使用者使用。 在土木工程的領域當中，有部分的工作皆是透過電腦技術支援來輔助完成，如同結構之計算與分析，而這些分析的依據皆來自於各式各樣的規範。土木工程師在進行設計時會參考許多規範的內容，不過規範通常皆為數百頁之多，工程師在有需求時無法逐一的進行翻閱。 因此，本研究將內政部建築研究所所頒佈之「2014建築物耐風設計規範與解說」以應用程式之型態呈現，希望以此提升土木工程師在翻閱規範時之便利性。 本研究以Apple公司所提供之整合式開發平台Xcode為開的主要工具，並且使用新推出的程式語言Swift為其開發iOS 系統之語言，整合「2014建築物耐風設計規範與解說」後完成一個功能性較完整的應用程式。 最後，透過Xcode進行實作之後，於Apple Device上實測，藉此了解在iOS系統上開發與土木工程相關App的程序與技術，以及評估在使用上之優缺點，以此為未來進行後續相關的App開發及改善的標準。 With the advance of science and technology, mobile devices are tending towards much more stability and maturity. It penetrates into our life with a fast speed that we don’t even notice. As we can see that people rely on mobile phone more than ever. Therefore, there are many mobile applications with different functions available for users to install.
Regarding the field of civil engineering, it’s a profession that highly needs assistance with computer technology when it comes to the calculation and analysis of structures. All of these depend on variety of codes and specifications. Civil engineers refer to all these documents when doing their designs. However, it would be hard for them to cite material while they only need a few thing inside hundreds of pages of design code.
As the research shows, this mobile application (App) is based on Wind Resistance Design Specifications and Commentary of Buildings, announced by Architecture and Building Research Institute, Ministry of the Interior. We seek to provide more convenience for civil engineers when they need to read over the specifications.
The goal of the research is to combine all the material into a functional mobile application. Not only Xcode was used as the integrated development platform, the new iOS programming language Swift, provided by Apple Inc., was selected at the beginning of the project.
Last but not least, we developed this application using Xcode and tested the App using the simulator as well as several Apple devices to realize the technology and process about developing an application for civil engineering on iOS system, and to evaluate the pros and cons for improving the App in the future.
