air-Kon-Matrizen

The aim of the project is to develop air-Kon-Matrices - inflatable, individually shaped and resource-saving hollow chamber matrices - for the production of lightweight foundations. A sub-goal of the Institute for Construction Management, Digital Engineering and Robotics in Construction at RWTH Aachen University is the development of digital models for the hollow chamber foundations, which are to be used for semi-automated production on the one hand and for on-site use to assemble the hollow chamber matrices on the other. more...

 
 

mdfBIM+

The aim of the project is the (partly) automated creation of digital twins for existing infrastructure structures. The basis is created by merging current measurement data (photogrammetry or LiDAR images) with the existing building documentation. The resulting as-builtmodels form the basis for future-oriented maintenance management and sustainable transport infrastructure. more...

CDE.BStB

On behalf of the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt), the recently launched research project CDE.BStB aims to develop a specific concept for a nationwide, inter-organizational CDE. This standardizes information management and communication in German road construction. The establishment of a nationwide CDE for public administrative bodies involved in infrastructure construction is intended to create a consistent and structured database for public administrative bodies. more...

 
  BIM-LoVe

BIM-LoVe

BIM opens up completely new possibilities for visualization. However, there are neither definitions nor standards for the necessary process steps, interfaces, characteristics and qualities of the visualizations. The goal is a generally applicable guideline that discusses and validates the methods of building visualization based on object-oriented 3D models and defines them for the first time in a step-by-step concept. more...
