dreher-jasonPaper (62): BIM in Structural Engineering: Interoperability and Algorithmically Generated Content

Abstract: As BIM continues to revolutionize the way that buildings and designed and constructed, interoperability between various BIM-related software is critical, particularly in field of structural engineering where design and documentation are no longer discrete activities.  The presenters will discuss how analysis and documentation models are linked to streamline workflows, and how algorithmically generated content can automate much of the modeling process.
