CAD-BIM REQUERIMENTS FOR MASONRY DESIGN PROCESS OF CONCRETE BLOCKS
Abstract: The masonry constructive technique of concrete blocks is a practice that contributes for a high level of industrialization in construction in addition to achieve the rationalization in this sector. The achievement of these benefits demands some design features such as modular coordination, blocks rows details and well documented and precise specifications. One solution to meet these design features without causing agility reduction during the process is the use of CAD-BIM (Building Information Modeling), which applies modeling and visualization techniques already consolidated in other industry branches. Although the CAD- BIM brings improvements in the design process, it does not provide tools aimed directly to blocks masonry design, what can cause difficulties. The goal of this work is to identify these problems through a case study in a builder office sited in Curitiba, Parana state, Brazil, which is specialized in building design of concrete blocks masonry. Based on the results of data collected in the case study and in the literature available was possible to develop a list of CAD-BIM requirements more suitable for this kind of design.
