Investigation of Geotechnical Interfaces for Building Information Modelling in Tunnelling
Digitalisation is now an essential part in the construction industry. One of the latest and most innovative feature in this field is Building Information Modelling (BIM). BIM in tunnelling and geotechnical engineering differs significantly from structural engineering, as the geology has an important impact. This paper shows different approaches on how to create interfaces between 3D geological models, 3D geotechnical codes and numerical codes as well as their compatibility with a BIM model. For this two methods are investigated with different software packages. A clear workflow on how to achieve an automatized import between the models is shown. In addition, a method to generate a code to create a fully automatized optimization model is discussed in the paper.
