Structural engineering and BIM
Structural engineering and software: welcom to the BIM ( Building Information Modeling)
What is the interest for these tools?
Regarding concrete engineering:
BIM tools allow companies to perform load-descending calculations, column calculations, beam calculations, and footing calculations at a much faster rate than manual calculation.
Regarding steel engineering:
BIM tools allow to better represent and calculate the metallic connections, as well as to optimize the weights of the constructions;
Regarding wood engineering:
Wood engineering is much more optimized because bim tools allow for quick simulations and to check how the structure behaves under these conditions.
In any case, the engineering of the structure rests nowadays mainly on digital tools. These digital tools are very powerful. But users must keep in mind that the accuracy of the results is relative to the precision of the operators who handle the software.
