1. Image-based 3D Mapping of Rebar Location for Automated Assessment of Safe Drilling Areas Prior to Placing Embedments in Concrete Bridge Decks
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 5/23/2012
Authors: Mani Golparvar-Fard, Behshad Ghadimi, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Geraldine S Cheok, Marek Franaszek, Robert R Lipman
Abstract: This paper presents a new image-based approach for 3D mapping the locations of the rebar and embedded components in a railway bridge deck prior to placement of concrete. Our approach enables practitioners to quickly and automatically identify where t ...

2. Augmenting BIM with 3D Imaging Data to Control Drilling for Embeds into Reinforced Concrete Bridge Decks
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 5/22/2012
Authors: Manu Akula, Robert R Lipman, Marek Franaszek, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Geraldine S Cheok, Vineet Kamat
Abstract: Placing embeds into reinforced concrete structures, after concrete is poured, without damaging reinforcement bars (rebar) is an industry-wide challenge encountered across the construction industry. In concrete structures such as containment vessels, ...

3. SteelVis User's Guide
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7822
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 10/3/2011
Author: Robert R Lipman
Abstract: This guide describes how to use SteelVis and its associated programs. SteelVis has two main functions: (1) to translate a CIS/2 (CIMsteel Integration Standards) file into an interactive 3D model in the form of a VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling La ...

5. 3D Imaging Systems for Manufacturing, Construction, and Mobility (NIST TN 1682)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1682
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 12/15/2010
Authors: Geraldine S Cheok, Maris Juberts, Marek Franaszek
Abstract: The National Defense Center of Excellence for Industrial Metrology and 3D Imaging (COE-IM3DI) is conducting research to enable the next generation of manufacturing-centric human/instrument/machine interaction. The generalized goal of the COE-IM3DI r ...

6. Methods for Static and Dynamic Performance Evaluation of Commercially-Available Ultra Wideband Tracking Systems
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 12/15/2010
Authors: Kamel Shawki Saidi, Marek Franaszek, Alan M. (Alan M.) Lytle, Jochen Teizer
Abstract: Locating and tracking resources (e.g., personnel, equipment, and materials) is critical in many industrial applications for monitoring productivity and safety. In construction, various technologies (e.g., global positioning systems (GPS), radio fre ...

7. Fitting Spheres to Range Data from 3D Imaging Systems
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 10/1/2009
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Christoph Johann Witzgall
Abstract: Two error functions used for nonlinear Least Squares (LS) fitting of spheres to range data from 3D imaging systems are discussed: orthogonal error function and directional error function. Both of the functions allow unrestricted gradient-based minimi ...

8. Details of the Mapping Between the CIS/2 and IFC Product Data Models for Structural Steel
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 1/1/2009
Author: Robert R Lipman
Abstract: A mapping between the CIMsteel Integration Standards (CIS/2) and the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) product data models for structural steel has been developed. The development of the mapping takes a pragmatic approach through a manual inspection ...

9. Computer-Based Monitoring for Decision Support Systems and Disaster Preparedness in Buildings
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 7/2/2008
Author: Alan B. Vinh
Abstract: The operation of modern buildings can support a vast amount of static and real-time data. Static information such as building schematics is vital for security and rescue purposes. There is a need for building managers and for first responders to be n ...

10. THE ROLE OF CAMERA NETWORKS IN CONSTRUCTION AUTOMATION
Topic: Construction Integration and Automation
Published: 5/7/2008
Authors: Itai Katz, Kamel Shawki Saidi, Alan M. (Alan M.) Lytle
Abstract: Due to the complexity and variability of capital construction sites, real-time monitoring remains an elusive goal. As unit price continues to fall, camera networks are becoming increasingly viable sensing modalities. The benefits of combining multipl ...
