BIM Use in the Construction Process

2009 International Conference on Management and Service Science, 2009

Building Information Modeling or BIM, is a new approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. With BIM technology, an accurate virtual model of a building is constructed digitally. When completed, the computer-generated model contains precise geometry and relevant ...

  • BIM Use in the Construction Process

    Building Information Modeling or BIM, is a new approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. With BIM technology, an accurate virtual model of a building is constructed digitally. When completed, the computer-generated model contains precise geometry and relevant data needed to support the construction, fabrication, and procurement activities needed to realize the building. In this research we describe a practical application of the BIM use in the construction process.

  • Project and Quality Management at Politecnico di Torino

    The profitable collaboration between Building Service and DISET -Building Engineering and Territorial Systems Department- applied to last works concerning some redevelopment areas of the Politecnico di Torino had brought to test the latest technologies in order to improve the quality of the whole design process, from the conceptual phase to the facility management one. In this regard, two case studies drawn up using Building Information Modeling technology are analyzed: they constitute the basis for further experiments in terms of software interoperability, that means the ability to exchange information automatically, without loss of data between different applications (structure, cost evaluation, building physics) that develop specific domains.

  • The Introduction and Operation of Distributed DC Power Systems into the British Telecom Switched Network

    In 1982 a decision was taken to discontinue for new exchanges, the provision of traditional dc centralised power plant which had been in vogue for the previous 20 or so years. It was argued that with the modernisation of the switched network, with the digital switch replacing strowger, the opportunity should be taken to adopt a dc power system which would be compatible with the emerging equipment practice image, and be capable of enhancement as power electronics technology changed. A system was designed based on the philosophy of integrating and distributing relatively small and very reliable "blocks" of dc power, on dedicated racks, within exchange equipment area's. Hence the complete dc power rack was introduced and made its international debut at Intelec '82 in Washington DC. This paper will review the period since 1982, and describe the introduction of the new dc distributed power policy into an operating environment with its well established planning and service operating experience of large centralised power plant. This involved the re-education of local field planning, installation and service staff, the organisation of new and modern maintenance techniques, and the review of existing repair policies. The paper will go on to discuss the operating experience of the distributed power system and how an acceptable level of confidence was achieved prior to commissioning equipment for public service.

  • Application of Response Surface Methodology in Finite Element Analysis of Deflection of Pretensioned Inverted T-Beam with Web Openings Strengthened with GFRP Laminates

    A precast, prestressed concrete girder with circular web openings allows building service systems (mechanical, electrical, communications, and plumbing) to cross the girder line within the memberpsilas depth, reducing a buildingpsilas floor-to-floor height and the overall height of the structure. These height reductions have the potential to improve the competitiveness of total precast concrete structures versus other types of building systems. The experimental program reported in this paper tested three inverted-tee girders with circular web openings strengthened with GFRP to failure to evaluate the openingspsila effect on girder behavior. The test girders were designed using available recommendations in the existing literature. Using ANSYS, finite element models were developed to simulate beam deflection behavior. Accuracy of the model is assessed by applying it to prestressed beam tested in this research. Comparison of analytical results with the available experimental results for load-deflection relationships show good agreement between the finite element and experimental results. Polynomial mathematical model, generated using various combination parameters using multiple regression analysis were found to be statistically significant. Parametric study using response surface methodology through finite element analysis may form efficient approximation to immediate deflection.

  • Natural ventilation potential analysis of rural residential buildings in China

    This paper presents the method of natural ventilation potential analysis of rural residential buildings based on the relationship between the building external climate and the indoor acceptable thermal environment, and the basic theory of natural ventilation. The natural ventilation potential of rural buildings was calculated in ten different areas covered five climate areas in China. Finally, the different effective factors of natural ventilation potential such as acceptable indoor air temperature, building orientation and heat gain were discussed.

  • Cooling Requirements for Small Telephone Exchanges

    This paper reviews the principal cooling requirements and techniques for small, and very small, local telephone exchanges (SLE and VSLE). The requirements described are the `whole-life' requirements. These requirements comprise the cooling methods; costs; equipment; manpower; materials; data and time factors associated with the cooling systems throughout their useful life. The environmental reliability requirements are described along with active and passive means of achieving thermally robust cooling systems. In this paper a small exchange is one of 2000 lines or less.

  • An automated approach for identification and resolution of spatial clashes in building design

    Designing a building is a complex task involving specialists from different domains. The current method of overlaying 2D Independent Services Drawings (ISD) to identify collisions between building services and structural framing is prone to errors, causing ad-hoc rework, and reduced headroom and maintainability issues.

  • Applying a Tradeoff Model (TOM) to TACT

    In a software system, it is inevitable that components will occasionally fail to produce acceptable results and become unavailable to serve its clients. Replication is the technique often used to increase the availability of a system. But replication introduces the issue of inconsistency among the replicas. TACT is a middleware toolkit for building services that can make a controlled and systematic tradeoff between the availability and the data consistency in the system. This paper presents a tradeoff model TOM that gives various properties and constraints that apply to a tradeoff situation. Using this model we show that the tradeoff in TACT is essentially 4 dimensional rather than just 2. The capacity and demand of the system adds additional dimensions to the basic availability and consistency tradeoff. We also show how TOM can be used to fulfil the QoS goals of the system with dynamically changing load and failure characteristics
