3. Augmenting BIM with 3D Imaging Data to Control Drilling for Embeds into Reinforced Concrete Bridge Decks
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 5/22/2012
Authors: Manu Akula, Robert R Lipman, Marek Franaszek, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Geraldine S Cheok, Vineet Kamat
Abstract: Placing embeds into reinforced concrete structures, after concrete is poured, without damaging reinforcement bars (rebar) is an industry-wide challenge encountered across the construction industry. In concrete structures such as containment vessels, ...

4. Building Information Services and Control System (BISACS): Technical Documentation, Revision 1.0
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7466
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 11/14/2007
Author: Alan B. Vinh
Abstract: The goal of the Building Information Services and Control System (BISACS) is to create a computer supported system that will allow external users to be authenticated then logged into the system in order to gain access to building information such as ...

5. Computer-Based Monitoring for Decision Support Systems and Disaster Preparedness in Buildings
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 7/2/2008
Author: Alan B. Vinh
Abstract: The operation of modern buildings can support a vast amount of static and real-time data. Static information such as building schematics is vital for security and rescue purposes. There is a need for building managers and for first responders to be n ...

6. Details of the Mapping Between the CIS/2 and IFC Product Data Models for Structural Steel
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 1/1/2009
Author: Robert R Lipman
Abstract: A mapping between the CIMsteel Integration Standards (CIS/2) and the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) product data models for structural steel has been developed. The development of the mapping takes a pragmatic approach through a manual inspection ...

7. EFFECT OF SCANNING DENSITY ON THE ACCURACY OF LOCATING SPHERE CENTERS FOR REGISTRATION
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 4/9/2008
Author: Marek Franaszek
Abstract: Applications for 3D imaging systems (e.g., laser scanners) have increased significantly in the past decade. Data from such systems often require registration. Spheres are often used for registration because they look the same from each direction and ...

8. Fitting Spheres to Range Data from 3D Imaging Systems
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 10/1/2009
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Christoph Johann Witzgall
Abstract: Two error functions used for nonlinear Least Squares (LS) fitting of spheres to range data from 3D imaging systems are discussed: orthogonal error function and directional error function. Both of the functions allow unrestricted gradient-based minimi ...

9. Image-based 3D Mapping of Rebar Location for Automated Assessment of Safe Drilling Areas Prior to Placing Embedments in Concrete Bridge Decks
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 5/23/2012
Authors: Mani Golparvar-Fard, Behshad Ghadimi, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Geraldine S Cheok, Marek Franaszek, Robert R Lipman
Abstract: This paper presents a new image-based approach for 3D mapping the locations of the rebar and embedded components in a railway bridge deck prior to placement of concrete. Our approach enables practitioners to quickly and automatically identify where t ...
