Advances in Computational Design: Advances in Computational Modelling and Data Analytics for Civil and Building Engineering

Guest Editor: Changbum Ryan Ahn, Texas A&M University (Ryanahn@Tamu.Edu)

Aim & Scope

The vast amount of high-resolution data obtained from smart sensors and devices offers significant opportunities for advancing computational modelling and data analytics for the design and construction of buildings and infrastructure. Already, various performance data have been integrated into N-dimensional building information modeling (BIM), foreseeably transforming the way society designs, constructs, maintains, and operates buildings and infrastructure. Additionally, recent advances in data analytics when processing structured and unstructured data present interesting opportunities to extract meaningful information from existing and new data sources in building and infrastructure projects.

This special issue of Advances in Computational Design will review and discuss advances in computational modelling and data analytics for the design and construction of building and infrastructure projects. Though we will consider related topics outside these areas, we invite shortlisted articles from ICCCBE 2018 as well as other relevant articles in the following broad research areas:

         Building information modelling

         Information modelling and data analytics for construction management

         Design visualization & construction visualization

         Asset and facility management

         Design management and collaboration

         Case studies in BIM and data analytics for construction projects

Submission Information

This special issue is in conjunction with ICCCBE 2018. Manuscripts should be submitted to the guest editor via email ( no later than September 30, 2018.

A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts can be found here. For any questions about this special issue, contact with Dr. Ryan Ahn.
