Civil Engineering BIM Education & Consulting

  1. Civil Engineering BIM Concept
  2. Civil Engineering BIM means a business process that builds a 3D BIM model from basic planning to basic design, implementation design, construction, and operation / maintenance and applies consistent and systematic information to the overall business with 3D model as its base.
    3D BIM model here means the data model made from 3D design software and according to its business area, it can be categorized into civil engineering, urban infrastructure, structure, equipment, and project collaboration management.
    3D CAD system and collaboration system in each civil engineering, urban infrastructure, architecture, structure, and equipment to which BIM is applied must be composed of commercial 3D design software specialized for each field. And the generated information must be compatible with all objects existing in each 3D BIM model without conversion or omission of information.
    This is based on data consistency and integration aspects for efficient BIM model data utilization and for data interoperability, it should be able to create and modify through the provided GUI.
  3. Definition of BIM in each nation
  4. Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs(Korea) A digital model that provides a reliable basis for decision making during the life cycle of a facility due to the physical or functional characteristics of the facility object in all areas of construction, including architecture, civil engineering, and plants, and the work procedures for its creation
    GAS(USA) Development and utilization of various software data models to document building design and examine the construction and operation of new capital or reinvested capital facilities
    NIBS(USA) Virtual computing expression with physical and functional characteristics of life cycle information as a shared information storage for collaboration during the facility life cycle
    NBS(UK) A rich information model consisting of multiple data sources that can be maintained and shared with all stakeholders, from the initial design of the building to the use of regeneration, throughout the life cycle of the building

  2. • Preliminary BIM Modeling
    - Creates the basic model at the initial stage of project design. By performing rough mass and volume calculations, the basic earthwork volume(storage volume, fill volume), structure quantity, and more must be directly extracted or referenced from the 3D BIM Model, and reviews various design alternatives.
  3. • Basic Design BIM Modeling
    - It is a BIM model at the stage of finalizing the basic design, the basic design drawings(ground plan, cross-sectional diagram, elevation drawing, longitudinal section drawing, cross-sectional view) must be extracted directly from the BIM Model.
  4. • Construction BIM Modeling
    - By reviewing the construction project, it is able to identify errors that may occur in construction and process management through 4D simulation.
  5. • Visualization / Simulation BIM Modeling
    - It is easy to visualize or simulate design at any time from BIM Model data generated at each project stage such as basic design, detailed design, or construction stage. It should be used as a tool and report for quick decision making and also to minimize possible design errors before the construction stage.
