10.30am Presentation: Elevating the Open BIM Process for Structural Engineers to the Next Level

  • Discover how the structural engineer becomes one with the BIM workflow - A new approach for collaboration between modeler and structural engineer within a federated model
  • Transfer any geometrical model into an analysis model with a time saving of 30-50% compared to a traditional workflow
  • Use newly defined standard for exchange of analysis models called SAF
  • Transfer from CAD model to analysis model steered by structural engineer, giving him control over the creation of the analysis model, while the modeller can focus on the geometrical model
  • No more loss of data: changes in geometrical models are managed, and related analysis models are updated, all while keeping additional input
  • Bi-directional changes: adjustment in the geometrical model will be automatically updated in the analysis model. Changes in the analysis model will create tasks to be executed in the CAD system

Speaker: Herman Oogink, Head of Strategic Alliances, SCIA
