Digital simulation of concrete structure construction: practical case-study in Bogota

Diego Echeverry, Holmes Páez, Harrison Mesa

Abstract


Activities are in progress to develop digital simulation of the construction of structural walls and slabs made of concrete, in building projects of a Colombian construction firm. In an initial project, the models that were generated allowed to produce recommendations to reduce the total construction time. At present another simulation process is concluding, applied to two new construction projects of the same firm. With these simulation tools the planning staff can evaluate different scenarios with a probabilistic approach, enabling an improved decision making in uncertain conditions.
