Structural Engineering for the Physical World

Advances in Building Information Modeling (BIM)
As BIM becomes pervasive in all types of engineering projects, structural engineers are adjusting their workflows and software tools to adapt to the challenges and opportunities that this technology brings. But what should structural engineers keep doing, and what should they do differently? And, most importantly, what outcomes and benefits can they expect if they are able to take full advantage of a structural BIM workflow? This white paper examines approaches to structural modeling that can yield significant benefits to structural engineering teams. New technologies, such as Bentley Systems’ STAAD CONNECT Edition structural analysis and design application, implements these approaches. As a result, engineers can maintain model quality while responding to changes and consider more design alternatives in a timely fashion.

Building Information Modeling Q+A

Saturday, July 12th, 2014
  1. What is BIM?

BIM is most recognizable as a product and collaborative process.

As a product, BIM becomes a Building Information Model – a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility, forming a reliable basis for decisions during the facility’s lifecycle from inception onward[1]. A Building Information Model includes 2D and 3D computer graphics enriched with non-graphic attribute information describing the components of the design. It may be requested as a project contract deliverable, provided during facility handover, and used for operations.

As a collaborative process, BIM becomes Building Information Modeling – a process by which a group of designers, contractors, material suppliers, and facility owners work together, sharing information about the project. Advanced BIM offerings provide a collaborative process featuring an increased depth of information modeling – beyond design visualization to performance simulation, optioneering, and operational immersion – and increased breadth of information mobility, facilitating collaboration among multiple project disciplines from design through construction and operations.
