Building Information Modeling - Civil Engineering Software

Buildin Information Modeling (BIM) and its benefits for future work and jobs
BIM Software

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides the 3D object library of the physical building. In essence, BIM is a way to construct building virtually, before building in the real world. While it has its root in architecture, the principles of BIM apply to everything that is built, including roads and highways, and the benefits of BIM are being experienced by Civil Engineers in the same way they enjoyed by Architects.
The use of powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Infrastructure tools even at the conceptual design stage allows infrastructure designers to map out a variety of schemes from the outset to maximize land usage and at the same time minimize environmental impact across the range of Civil Engineering disciplines, including Road, Rail, Utilities, and GIS. BIM allows engineers more easily to predict the performance of the project before they are built, respond to design changes faster, optimize designs with analysis, simulation, and visualization, and also deliver high-quality documents. The most immediate benefits of BIM are for the road and highway projects and it is particularly important for transportation agencies because it can shorten the time to contract to let, resulting in projects being complete sooner and within more predictable timetables.
By investing in BIM for infrastructure civil engineering businesses will be able to increase the efficiency and profitability within the company as well as being more competitive in the marketplace. And at many places for completing projects, fast BIM will no doubt be the first call for supply.
BIM expands significantly the design decision matrix, facilitating collaboration among the various disciplines and systems, identifying clashes before construction begins. Also the design and construction teams, modeling can greatly aid owners in managing projects through their useful life.


  1. I would say this is one of the best articles I’ve read. From beginning to end you nailed it totally. To write this you might have worked hard for research. Thanks for sharing this good article.Structural engineering services

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be

DDSS - Roof Truss

Design Of Roof Truss: If load from purlin, false ceiling etc are applied in between the nodes, then principal rafters or main ties are designed for combined stresses from bending and axial loads. IS 800 - 2007 provides general design procedure for the angle Purlins conforming to steel grade of Fe 410 of O, S, W  and not exceeding slope more than 30 degree based on live load of 750 N/m2. Loads on Trusses: Dead Load, Live Load, Wind Load and Snow Load are types of loads on the truss. The main in Design of Truss in small truss and some Industrial Truss. Dead Load (DL): If spacing of Truss is 4 m and pitch of truss is 1:4 then self weight of the truss is taken as, w = (l/3+6) of plan area .... in kN/m2. Then add all the dead loads with this such as GI sheet, AC sheet and Purlins weight. Then multiply with the plan area to get the actual DL. Live Load(LL): If the angle is less than 10 degree, then the LL will be directly taken as 750 N/m2. If slope of truss is more than 10 degree, live load

Timber Buildings !?

 Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for the old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high-rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Tim
