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

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

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

What is Hybrid
The term hybrid denotes a combination of both raster (scanned) and vector (CAD) drawings. "Hybrid editing" means accessing both raster and vector data simultaneously in the same drawing . Changes can be made within either environment. Information can be exchanged back and forth between the two distinctive formats. This approach offers the most efficient method for modifying the old drawing within the new drawing. Open Archive Systems

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

Due to Orbits strong desire to provide great support and the powerful features and functions of ZWCAD, Zamil not only decided to integrate the software in Saudi Arabia, but in their branches around the world as well. Zamil is continuing to purchase additional seats of ZWCAD given that they are unifying the solution in all units and sub branches and receiving positive end user feedback along with continuous improvements in the software. Truman Du, CEO of ZWSOFT commented, “Zamil and Orbit are a great example of the partner relationship that we promote here at ZWSOFT. Outstanding product performance and support are the core values that we have been continuously delivering to our customers.
