3D City GIS – A Major
A Bentley White Paper Benoit Fredericque, Product Manager 3D City GIS Products Alain Lapierre, Senior Director, Civil and Geospatial Frameworks Introduction Our mission at Bentley has always focused on helping our users improve the world’s infrastructure. We do this by providing software solutions, products, and services that improve the productivity and quality of the work performed by architects, engineers, constructors, and geospatial professionals through the design-build-operate lifecycle of infrastructure. Infrastructure – everything from roads, bridges, buildings, and factories to water, electric, gas and communications networks – provides the basic facilities, services, and installations for a society to function. Creating a sustainable world has become a clear priority for the world’s communities as well as for Bentley. Bentley shares its view on how infrastructure sustains our society, the environment, and the professions in the white paper “Sustaining Infrastructure,” available here. This paper shows examples of the creativity and innovative work of Bentley users that resulted in the successful completion of infrastructure projects that have contributed to this objective. Given that urbanization is accelerating worldwide, the battleground for sustaining infrastructure will be at the local government level. In response to this trend, this paper focuses on how the use of 3D city geospatial information systems can assist in sustaining infrastructure at the local level.

House Ber
heading> House Ber, Midrand- the practical dream home Gone are the days where a house is designed with the intention to remove its occupants from the outdoor environment, and House Ber is an exquisite example of this. Designed by Werner van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects, the house’s striking rectangular structure makes the house stand out from every angle. Between the use of transparent glass, a koi pond and pool surrounding the living room area, and the porch forming part of the interior-this masterpiece invites the serenity of the outdoor environment. Not only does the open plan of the entire house make it a practical and comfortable space to live in, but it also creates unity between all its different spaces, as each room subtly transforms into another as occupants move through it. The cantilevered granite clad wall staircase is elegantly secured between the wall on one side, and glass support on the other. There are handrails on both sides for added support, with the one handrail resting on the glass support structure, and the other neatly cut into the wall. The steps are made from slabs of granite, and steel sheets were used as the dividers between the steps. These steel sheets are barely visible, making the steps appear as though they are floating in the air- this creates an aesthetically pleasing illusion. The steel grating balcony of the main bathroom is located in the north-east corner of the house, enabling it to also protect the kitchen from too much morning sun. The kitchen itself was cleverly designed to be as stylish as the rest of the house, yet simple enough to work in. A bridge that crosses over the living room connects the pyjama lounge and children’s bedrooms to the main suite. The bathroom and bedroom are spacious, yet cosy-the latter being a crucial component in order to maintain the sense of privacy that these rooms should have, in any house. As inviting and open as the home is, security was not compromised-neither was originality. Instead of conventional burglar bars, steel bars were placed in a unique uninformed fashion all around the house. Innovation and originality were the driving concepts behind the design of House Ber, however functionality was never overlooked. As a result, it is impressive enough to be the ultimate dream home, yet practical enough to also be a liveable home. Phia van der Meulen, lead designer of M Square Lifestyle Design used the random patterns evident on the steel facade as inspiration for the interior design. Illuminated ceilings add to the feeling of transparency, whilst the materials used were chosen to complement the contemporary feel. Nico van der Meulen Architects

Bentley software was used to analyze the module for all static and dynamic loads observed during pre-service and in-service conditions. SACS improved design accuracy and visual clarity, which saved on-site construction time and reduced steel consumption by 10 percent. Bentley Systems

RetainWall 2.20
RetainWall is a software mainly designed for the purpose of designing a concrete or masonry retaining wall. The wall may retain soil or other granular material. It analyses the stability of the wall based on the loads and the resulting base pressure, sliding, overturning, eccentricities and restraints. Loads applied on the wall may consist of self weight, soil pressure, water pressure, live and seismic loads. Sliding restraints may consist of passive earth pressure, other structures or a shear key. If the wall is a reinforced concrete structure, the software also supports the reinforcement design. In addition, a soil pressure calculator is also provided. RetainWall is designed to be an easy application, on-screen trial-and-error method and quick solution finding of the design. A familiar designer can design the wall within minutes. Complete outputs can be viewed on screen or printed. Operation of the software begins from the initial dimensioning of the wall, earth surface and water levels by clicking on the given dimensions. Next is inputting material properties of the wall, soil, water and reinforcement bars. External loads given consist of live load on the ground surface, seismic load as a horizontal seismic coefficient and any concentrated loads if required. Results of the wall stability can be obtained immediately. If they are not satisfied then another trial can be made very quickly. There are also options to use or not to use water, seismic or a shear key. You have the possibility to print your final results. Using the internal forces of the wall, reinforced concrete design can also be done very quickly. It requires only bar diameters and spacings of the reinforcements. RetainWall supports metric, SI and British unit systems. JavaSoft

BE&K recently conducted an evaluation of AVEVA's Laser Model Interface to see how it could impact our working procedures. Before using Laser Model Interface, it took us four steps to go from capturing as-built conditions with 3D laser scanning, to being able to use and modify that information inside AVEVA PDMS: a scanner vendor application, a CAD application, and PDMS, with translators back and forth between each one. We implemented Laser Model Interface on a trial project and found that we could reduce this process to a single step.

The detailed hydraulics of surface runoff is considerably complex and varies both temporally and spatially. Due to the multifarious relationships associated with runoff processes, the mathematical functions required to compute and represent these are also considerably complex and so empirical equations and approaches have historically been developed to describe them for various circumstances.

Design Sharing in BIM
Next to a great many benefits, Building Information Modeling (BIM) has also introduced new challenges for the design team. BIM models contain significantly more data and with much tighter integration than traditional 2D CAD drawings. As a result access by teams to projects now contain bottlenecks not known in earlier CAD design methods. Traditional work sharing, by assigning standalone CAD files to individual team members, does not work in case of model-based design since the entire project is incorporated within the BIM model therefore BIM projects require a completely new method of work sharing. To facilitate teamworking in BIM projects software vendors developed file-based model sharing solutions. Team members worked on copies of the BIM project and synchronization of the work of the team was achieved through merging the different versions of the project files. With BIM becoming mainstream and with the recent focus on accelerating construction project completion the clunky, file-based workflow quickly has become “the bottleneck” to timely project delivery. This whitepaper aims to analyze the different solutions provided to the above-described problem and offer recommendations about the most important criteria one should be aware of when selecting an optimal design sharing solution for BIM implementation.

SACS and STAAD Software Optimizes Topside Modules Located in the Santos Basin off the coast of Brazil, the OSX-3 is a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel designed to produce and treat 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil. L&T-Valdel Engineering was commissioned by MODEC International to provide modularization design for the FPSO topside. The challenge was to complete the design of 15 modules and 10 pipe racks within 10 months. The company used SACS for modeling, analysis, and optimization of the FPSO topside structure and STAAD.Pro to design its tertiary steel. Bentley software was used to analyze the module for all static and dynamic loads observed during pre-service and in-service conditions. SACS improved design accuracy and visual clarity, which saved on-site construction time and reduced steel consumption by 10 percent. Bentley Systems

Beyond IECC 2009 Paisano
WORKSHOP8’s high profile Paisan Green Community project, has been presented at several conferences across the US, most notably at HUD’s Going Green: Intelligent Investment for Public Housing conference in Boston in July 2012. Paisano Green Community is the first NetZero, fossil fuel free, LEED Platinum, affordable senior housing project in the United States. This 73 unit project is built on a 4.2 acre site, adjacent to the major border crossing between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico.

To disseminate green design best practices to housing authorities around the country, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is assembling a website with case studies of energy efficiency programs implemented by public housing authorities from around the country. At HUD’s request, WORKSHOP8 and Sustainably Built prepared a white paper outlining the best practices in delivering sustainability and green design in affordable housing.

The 13-page white paper describes the energy efficiency strategies—both passive and active—that are included in the project. Sustainably Built put together a comparison of the building design versus the IECC 2009 code requirement and modeled the energy consumption of a typical one bedroom unit as built at Paisano Green Community versus a unit built to base code standards.

It seemed simple: develop a modern house within the existing frame of an 18th-century cottage and design an addition to provide more living space. The initial intent was to renovate the existing structure and design an extension that reflected the cottage’s traditional lines. But, the design evolved organically from there, and the project proved to be more involved than the architects first thought, according to Brian Messana, principal, Messana O’Rorke Architects.

LeanWall 1.10.40
LeanWall is a software mainly designed for the purpose of designing a concrete or masonry leaning wall. The wall may lean on rock or soil and may retain soil or other granular material. It analyses the stability of the wall based on the loads and the resulting base pressure, sliding, anchor stresses and excentricities. Loads applied on the wall may consist of self weight, soil pressure, water pressure, live and seismic loads. If the wall is a reinforced concrete structure, the software also supports the reinforcement design. In addition, a soil pressure calculator is also provided. LeanWall is designed to be an easy application, on-screen trial-and-error method and quick solution finding of the design. A familiar designer can design the wall within minutes. Complete outputs can be viewed on screen or printed. Operation of the software begins from the initial dimensioning of the wall, earth surface and water levels by clicking on the given dimensions. Next is inputing material properties of the wall, soil, water and reinforcement bars. External loads given consist of live load on the ground surface, seismic load as a horizontal seismic coefficient and any concentrated loads if required. Results of the wall stability can be obtained immediately. To meet a stable wall, rock or ground anchors may be provided. If they are not satisfied then another trial can be made very quickly. Final results can be printed. Using the internal forces of the wall, reinforced concrete design can also be done very quickly. It requires only bar diameters and spacings of the reinforcements. LeanWall supports metric, SI and British unit systems. JavaSoft

Adding it All Up at Durham
Like most public educators, the people of Durham District School Board in Ontario, Canada, aren't in it for the money. However, over the past couple of years they've seen what a little extra cash can do.

This is more than just money in the bank - it's money that directly impacts the quality of children's education. ARCHIBUS, Inc.

Make Better Decisions
Project profit analysis management is a process of periodically reviewing, usually weekly, the changes in each project’s profit margin. Knowing how much and why the profit margins change allows management to preview the financial finish line throughout the project. It gives management a heads up and allows more time to address problems at earlier construction stages.This process usually results in improved profits. HeadsUp Technologies

Profit Maximization Through
To maximize project profits, managers need to have knowledge of jobsite activities that may cause a project to be late or cost more than planned. This information needs to be passed on in a timely way so managers can take corrective action as soon as possible. The more time that passes before corrective action is taken, the more likely a project will be late and the profit margin eroded. HeadsUp Technologies

Delivering P2P Process
Arnold Laver Timber World processes 500,000 purchase orders each year from 28,000 customers. Like most suppliers in the construction sector, Arnold Laver needs to reduce the proportion of poor quality purchase orders (PO’s) it receives as well as being able to meet ‘Next Day’ and ‘Just in Time’ delivery requirements. Poor quality or inaccurate PO’s introduce a real risk that Arnold Laver might deliver the wrong products or materials. Construction Industry Solutions (Shaker) Corp.

C.S. McCrossan Increases
C.S. McCrossan Inc., a diversified heavy highway contractor with locations in New Mexico, Arizona and Minnesota, performs over one hundred million dollars in airport, structural and heavy highway work every year. With a workload of this volume, it is no surprise that C.S. McCrossan has a large number of estimators. Before purchasing BID2WIN Estimating & Bidding in 1999, C.S. McCrossan was using spreadsheets for estimating and bidding, and a lot of estimators were doing bids by hand. The company knew that a standardized system was needed to get everyone on the same page.

BID2WIN's Versatility
As an ISO 9000 registered company, BA Blacktop believes that continual improvement is the key to providing superior quality products and services. This belief is applied to every aspect of their business, and the estimating department is no exception. However, estimators at BA Blacktop were finding it difficult to continuously improve their estimating and bidding process while using spreadsheets. “The spreadsheets were too time-consuming and any changes that needed to be made were very cumbersome,” says estimator Martin Logan-Hill. The company needed a solution to increase the speed, accuracy and ultimately the quality of their bids. BID2WIN Software, Inc.

BID2WIN is Instrumental
Daniel DiCarlo, President and founder of Ohio-based civil construction company Equipt, Inc., knows firsthand the importance of a streamlined estimating and bidding process. As a small company, Equipt Inc.’s profitability is dependent on its estimators’ ability to get consistent and accurate bids out the door in the same timeframe as its larger competitors. In today’s increasingly competitive bidding environment, this would pose a challenge to any small company—and seem virtually impossible for one with only three estimators. However, Equipt Inc. has no problem keeping up with BID2WIN Estimating & Bidding on their side. BID2WIN Software, Inc.

Problem with piping "Liftoff"
Contemporary commercial piping analysis programs deal differently with the problem of apparent lift-off of an operating pipe at a rod hanger or a one-way vertical support, such as a pipe on a support rack. A few programs provide error messages; others show a vertical movement with a possible increase in sustained (weight) stress (see NOTE below for CAEPIPE). A proper understanding of the standard piping design practice is the key to correct interpretation of these results from different programs. Such standard piping design practice was generally understood when the sustained and flexibility analysis rules were introduced in the 1955 Edition of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Pipin SST Systems, Inc.

Located in the Bay of Tokyo, the USD 6 billion offshore runway is comprised of a 1,100-meter pier section and a 2,020-meter reclaimed section. NSENGI completed detailed design of the jacket-supported pier structure in just 18 months. This is the first application of a jacket structure for an offshore airport runway, and it could not have been designed in this timeframe without the use of Bentley’s SACS software to perform fatigue analysis of the structure under the most severe of conditions. The pier’s 100-year service life is 70-80 years longer than the standard for offshore structures. Bentley Systems

New One-Stop Permit Center
Catawba County is an innovative jurisdiction that regards technology as a powerful tool for improving service. In the mid-90s, Catawba County Manager Tom Lundy and the County commissioners decided to completely revamp the County’s technology instead of simply upgrading existing systems for Y2K. As Mick Berry, Director of Information Technology, explained, “The County leaders recognized that we had ‘maxed out’ the investments in our old systems. It didn’t make sense to spend more money on dead systems.” Accela, Inc.

Cleveland, Ohio Transforms
Like many jurisdictions across the U.S., Cleveland, Ohio was in need of a major technology upgrade if it wanted to improve how it delivered services to its citizens. City departments that worked closely together were using more than 15 disparate systems and manual processes to manage activities including permit issuance, license renewals, inspection management, and plan reviews. The City sought to implement an enterprise e-government solution that would bring multiple departments under a common database, provide online access to government services, and empower inspectors with tools to access information in the field using wireless PDAs powered by Intel® XScale™ technology.
