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 uses AVEVA Laser
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. We expect this streamlined process to save more than three hours per pipe modelled and to significantly reduce the risk of error.' Aveva Group Plc

2D Runoff Modeling -
The advantages and disadvantages of different approaches to the modeling of surface runoff have long been debated by the water industry and academics alike. 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.
