Research on upgrading the collapse resistant capacity of building structures based on BIMAuthor(s): Liwen You
For a long time, the aseismatic capacity of engineering structures has always been a major research direction of architecture. As is known to all, building collapse is one of the major earthquake devastating consequences. Damages of buildings generally reflect the degree of earthquake disaster. As a result, the aseismatic capacity of building structures, especially their capacity to prevent collapse, is of great importance to the overall earthquake defense system of the society. During the long term of research, some researchers have provided several excellent ideas. However, on account of lacking of the data summarization, a great many of studies have been stagnant. The ice is not broken until information technology represented by computers is widely used in architecture. On three major phases (design, construction and management) of building life cycle, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is of great importance to promote the data information exchange and sharing, accelerate decision speed, reduce the project cost and improve the production quality. On the basis of introducing BIM development, this paper elaborates the functions of BIM on the research on upgrading the collapse resistant capacity of building structures, hoping to promote the application of BIM on the research on the collapse resistant capacity of building structures.
