|Title:||Integrated application of advanced surveying techniques and BIM for inspection and asset management of reinforced concrete bridges|
Matos, José C.
|Abstract(s):||The aim of the work reported herein was to explore the possibilities of integrating new ways of surveying into RC bridge inspection activities and evaluating the possibility of integrating data into a BIM model, as to allow quick overviews to be obtained after each inspection. Efforts were made in regard to modelling strategies, not only of the RC bridge elements, but also of 'damage' information that required special attention, as to allow non-graphic information to be easily retrievable. Special tools (add-ins to the BIM platform) were also developed in order to allow quick introduction of inspection data into the BIM model through Excel spreadsheets. The concepts/methods proposed were put to test in an extensive inspection to a bridge located in the north of Portugal. This work results from a collaboration of the University of Minho with Betar, a consulting office with more than 20 years of experience in Bridge inspection, which has authored a managing system for road infrastructure and actively applies it.|
