Facing a new reality in the computerazationN of the industry
Abstract: The introduction of computers in the management of building
projects has gone on since the early sixties. In recent years the
use of personal computers has increased and will soon become
widespread within the organizations of the industry. This
development has followed the mechanization of manual work on
building sites and in component factories in the fifties. The
mechanization of information processing is a logical consequence
of the ongoing industrialization of the society, because
mechanized production requires adequate and efficient management
of activities, In this situation organizations will undergo
changes and will collaborate according to new patterns in order
to profit by the new technology [ref 11. In Europe the
introduction of the Inner Market will have effects which will
require measures to ease communication between the parties of the
industry. Therefore, the idea of a common artificial language has
gained increasing interest. It has become necessary for technical
reasons but also in order to facilitate communication among
nations that use different natural languages. This paper outlines
some of the problems related to formalization of co-ordinated
communication in an industry facing a new reality [ref 21.

Process oriented numerical simulation of mechanized tunnelling using an IFC-based tunnel product model
Abstract: The use of underground space is a prerequisite for maintaining mobility and infrastructure in today’s crowded urban areas. In order to minimize risks and mitigate hazards, reasonably accurate numerical simulations of the tunneling process are required. The authors have previously proposed a comprehensive process-oriented 3D finite element simulation model. Information on tunnel projects, however, is usually only available in a heterogeneous and dispersed form, preventing complex simulation models from easily being employed in practice. In this contribution, an IFC-based product model for mechanized tunneling is presented that is used to automatically create a complex numerical simulation model. A model mapping procedure is proposed that links IFC representations of the ground, the tunnel, and the shield machine with the corresponding input of the parametric simulation model. The proposed approach is demonstrated by means of a parameter study for a metro tunnel excavation in Düsseldorf, Germany.
