Saimaa University of Applied Sciences (SUAS) [email protected] +358405801752 Civil engineering education/BIM in SUAS Master level 60 cu 20 students - 2 years -Final thesis 30 cu Double degree 60 cu Using BIM in Civil Engineering 3 cu 20 russian students Basics of Tekla as a part of structural engineering course Three years work experience Bachelor level 240 cu About 200 students Construction management 210 cu -Structural engineering 70 students -Infra engineering 3,5 years -Construction management Basics of BIM 3 cu -Final thesis 15 cu BIM Structural Design 3 cu Courses • Construction management 215 cu – Basics of BIM 3 cu: The main target is to give general knowledge of BIM and learn to use one BIMsoftware (Archicad) • Bachelor level – BIM Structural design 3 cu: The main target is to understand basic principles of BIM based structural design process and learn to use Tekla Structures software – Basics of Archicad is one part of basic CAD-course Courses • Master level 60 cu – Using BIM in Civil Engineering 3 cu: The main target is to understand total BIM process in Civil Engineering projects Courses • Double degree programme: – Basics of Tekla Structures as a part of structural engineering course How ? • Own teachers • Teachers from companies • Many BIM softwares are available for students, but only most common softwares are included in BIM courses Future • • • • BIM will be integrated to ”normal” courses BIM tools will be normal tools BIM thinking will be normal thinking COBIM (Common BIM Requirements) is a new basement • Basic tools will be educated as early as possible (Archicad, Tekla Structures) • Also in infra education BIM will be important Learning outcomes and BIM in different education levels ? • • • • • • Remembering Understanding Applying Analysing Evaluating Creating Table 1. Levels of learning and verbs. Level Responds to question Verbs Remembering Can the student explain ideas and concepts? identify, list, define, name, present, write, reproduce, repeat, match, extract, organise Understanding Can the student use his or her interpret, exemplify, summarise, judge, knowledge in another familiar context? reformulate, report, find, name, classify, distinguish, paraphrase, explain Applying Can the student use his or her practice, operate, apply, resolve, show, knowledge in another familiar context? prepare, explain how, select, compute, modify Analysing Can the student identify the essential points? compare, break down, contrast, differentiate, divide, examine, categorise, analyse, evaluate, justify Evaluating Can the student make a justified assessment or conclusion? judge, conclude, compare, justify, explain, interpret, rate, comment Creating Can the student create new products, ideas, viewpoints? design, devise, produce, suggest, develop, generate, derive, enlarge, modify Final Thesis and BIM 2010-2011 • Ville Leikas: Column joint designing and modeling, WSP Finland • Jani Paappanen:Comparison of design in building information model and conventional structural,Pöyry Finland Oy • Marko Hovi:Benefits of using building information modeling on construction site, Skanska • Alexey Krishtalevich: Custom Components in Tekla Structures , Finnmap Consulting • Column joint designing and modeling Context • Steel joints • Creating Tekla Structurescustom components • Mathcad-calculation • Creating the connection with Tekla Structures and Mathcad Results • Good calculation tool inside the Tekla Structures • Connection with Tekla Structures and Mathcad is working.
