The Advantages of BIM for Structural Engineers

Construction Tech Review | Monday, May 02, 2022

Using BIM, structural engineers can turn even the most complicated models into reality.

Fremont, CA:Building Information Modelling (BIM) enables structural engineers to efficiently design, visualize, analyze, simulate, and document projects. Structural Engineers can virtually create the building structure using BIM authoring tools. Structural engineers and designers can use 3D modeling software to generate models for documentation and coordination. The key benefits of BIM for structural engineers are the constant model updating in response to changes in the design or general standards and keeping all data as precise as possible. The most significant advantages of BIM for structural engineers include increased productivity, enhanced data coordination and consistency, and improved 3D visualization and simulation of issues and scenarios.

Advantages of BIM for structural engineers are:

Productivity

Structural Engineers devote more time to coordination tasks than to design and value engineering. The use of BIM can reduce the time spent on coordination and allow Structural Engineers to focus all of their attention on issue solutions rather than constantly checking for errors or coordinating the modifications made. Structural Engineers can provide creative solutions to difficulties thanks to the data-driven BIM approach.

Coordination

Including various stakeholders in a construction project increases the effort required for coordination and introduces an additional potential for errors and re-work. If the structural engineer has to make a change to a design element and the drafter does not update it, the documents get out of sync, impacting the validity of the design created. The collaborative nature of the BIM Process not only allows for better coordination of the project team, but it also allows for better design decisions to be locked down utilizing the data-driven business model.

Teamwork and knowledge sharing

Both relational and productive aspects are discussed, and the application of the BIM Process in the construction workflow can provide significant benefits. By sharing models, the interaction between various technical specialists who are able to trade and share knowledge develops, and it boosts skills and productivity for the entire team.

Visualization

The visualization of projects using various tools also aids in the predictability and behavior of a structure. The Structural Stability and Performance Analysis can easily be accomplished utilizing the BIM Process's 3D virtual model. Another important advantage of BIM is the ability to generate simulations and test different structural layouts.
