The paper describes work done in developing an expert system for conceptual form design of load-bearing machine parts. Design of this nature can be done without calculating stress magnitude. The knowledge base is built from case studies of form design, starting with simple structures and gradually increasing the complexity. It was found that this method of case studies was a convenient way of gradually building universal rules for designing. Several types of constraints were considered. It has been demonstrated that knowledge bases for such design problems are not just knowledge intensive but procedure and analysis dependent.
