The authors propose a knowledge-based framework for assisting users in setting up, interpreting, and hierarchically refining finite-element models in a structural engineering domain. The central mechanism for providing modeling assistance is the explicit representation and incremental activation and refraction of modeling assumptions that operate on functional descriptions.
