Abstract [en]

Information transfer between structural design programs

This report examines whether the synchronization tool ISM is useful for structural engineers when transferring structural data between structural design programs AECOsim Building Designer and Tekla Structures.

The report is written in collaboration with Byggnadstekniska Byrån, who see the need to streamline the modeling process. In their present workflow, a constructional object is modeled separately in AECOsim Building Designer and Tekla Structures. The time required for modeling can be reduced if ISM can be used to transfer a model from one program to another.

The utility of ISM is decided from certain evaluation criteria. Each criterion represents data of a constructional component that is controlled for correct synchronization. The information consists of the component profile name, geometry, coordinates, material quality and fire class.

The implementation of the evaluation follows a specific workflow, where various steel and concrete components are synchronized between the structural design programs. The component data is controlled and documented in four steps. Further, it is determined whether the data is judged to be correct or not.

The result show synchronized building components that do not meet the mandatory evaluation criteria. For synchronization of structures containing building components of steel, the unfulfilled criteria leads to certain limitations in the technology. However, with a few adjustments to the designer modeling techniques, ISM can be useful in the synchronization of structures in concrete.
