The objective of the validation process was to have industryexperts participate and to compare the tall building design alternativesgenerated by Tall-D to those designed in actual projects. Two expertscompared test-cases with the designs produced by Tall-D system. Thesedesign sessions also enabled the experts to critique the individual cases aswell as the overall performance of Tall-D. The overall performance wasevaluated through a comprehensive questionnaire on the different featuresof Tall-D as an automated design tool.
