101-0524-00LLean, Integrated and Digital Project DeliveryW4 KP2GD. Hall
KurzbeschreibungThis course is an introduction to innovative construction project delivery through a combination of three strategies: integrated information, integrated organization, and integrated processes. Students will be introduced to innovative construction management practices related to Building Information Modelling, Lean Construction, Relational Contracting and Integrated Project Delivery.
LernzielBy the end of the course, students will be able to plan and manage the lean, integrated, and digital project delivery of a construction project.
Students will know they are able to achieve this overall course goal when they can:
1. Apply the fundamental theories of lean production to the context of construction management. This includes the ability to describe the three views of production: transformation, flow and value generation; evaluate the benefits of a pull production system compared to push production systems; evaluate how production variability and uncertainty contributes to work-in-process and 'waste'; and apply the concepts of lean production to several construction management tools including the Last Planner System, Pull Planning, Target Value Design, and Takt Planning.
2. Understand the fundamentals of Virtual Design and Construction and Building Information Modeling. This includes the ability to prepare a model breakdown structure capable of integrating project information for all stakeholders; describe the upcoming transition to a common data environment for BIM that will use platforms such as Autodesk Forge; and describe the barriers to successful implementation of BIM within construction and design firms
3. Create and operate a basic integrated '5D' scope schedule cost model with parametric logic. This includes the ability to apply parametric logic to the creation of a virtual model for construction production; and evaluate the limitations of the critical path method when compared to resource- and space-constrained scheduling
4. Evaluate benefits of integrated project governance compared to the organization of traditional construction project delivery systems. This includes the ability to evaluate the risks, benefits and considerations for integrated teams using multi-party relational contracts that cross disciplinary and firm boundaries; and explain to others the 'elements' of integrated projects (e.g. colocation, early involvement of key stakeholders, shared risk/reward, collaborative decision making)
InhaltThe construction industry is continually seeking to deliver High-Performance (HP) projects for their clients. HP buildings must meet the criteria of four focus areas – buildability, operability, usability, and sustainability. The project must be buildable, as measured by metrics of cost, schedule, and quality. It must be operable, as measured by the cost of maintaining the facility for the duration of its lifecycle. It must be usable, enabling productivity, efficiency and well-being of those who will inhabit the building. Finally, it must be sustainable, minimizing the use of resources such as energy and water. Buildings that succeed in all four of these areas can be considered HP projects.
HP buildings require the integration of building systems. However, the traditional methods of planning and construction do not use an integrated approach. Project fragmentation between many stakeholders is often cited as the cause of poor project outcomes and the reason for poor productivity gains in the construction industry. In response, the construction industry has turned to new forms of integration in order to integrate the processes, organization, and information required for high performance projects.
This course investigates emerging trends in the construction industry – e.g. colocation, shared risk/reward contracts, lean construction methods, and use of shared building information models (BIM) for virtual design and construction (VDC) – as a way to achieve HP projects.
For integrated processes, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of lean construction management. This course will look at the causes of variability in construction production and teach the theory of lean production for construction. Processes and technologies will be introduced for lean management, such as the last planner system, takt time planning, production tracking, and target value design.
For integrated information, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of virtual design and construction, including how to use work breakdown structures and model breakdown structures for building information modeling, and the fundamentals and opportunities for 4D scheduling, clash detection, and “5D and 6D” models. Future technologies emerging to integrate information such as the use of Autodesk Forge will be presented. Students will have the opportunity to discuss barriers in the industry to more advanced implementation of BIM and VDC.
For integrated organization, students will study the limitations of the construction industry to effectively organize for complex projects, including the challenges of managing highly interdependent tasks and generating knowledge and learning within large multi-organizational project teams. One emerging approach in North America known as IPD will be studied as a case example. Students will explore the benefits of certain ‘elements’ of IPD such as project team colocation, early involvement of trade contractors, shared risk/reward contracts, and collaborative decision making.
The course will also include several guest lectures from industry experts to further demonstrate how these concepts are applied in practice.
SkriptLecture Presentation slides will be available for viewing and download the day before each lecture.

101-0525-00LBuilding Information Modeling for Design and Construction Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen W3 KP4GM. Bonanomi
KurzbeschreibungThis course offers an introduction and overview to Building Information Modeling (BIM), an integrated data-rich 3D model-based methodology. The implementation of BIM is rapidly increasing in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. Several studies show that BIM offers the potential for increased industry productivity, process efficiency, and product quality.
LernzielUpon successful completion of the course, students should be able to:
-To describe the characteristics of a BIM-based work environment, in terms of the technological infrastructure, integrated workflow, and collaborative people management required;
-To assess case studies on successful or 'failed' BIM implementations and use-cases;
-To develop a BIM model;
-To identify future industry trends and opportunities through the lens of the construction industry digitalization.
InhaltThe course will unpack BIM into its fundamentals - technology, process, and people – by showcasing technology platforms and related BIM workflows and workforces required. The course will also highlight future trends for construction digitalization.
The course is organized around a group project carried out in teams of three. Teams will be required to develop a BIM model including design modelling, quantity surveying, basic energy performance simulations and computational design. The teams will be also asked to envision the project management required to support and enable a successful BIM implementation and use.
Part 1: Introduction to the driving factors, opportunities, and challenges for implementing BIM.
Part 2: Explanation of the fundamentals of BIM from the three-fold perspective of technology, process, and people.
Part 3: Application in class of the BIM methodology on example cases.

101-0187-00LStructural Reliability and Risk Analysis Information W3 KP2GS. Marelli
KurzbeschreibungStructural reliability aims at quantifying the probability of failure of systems due to uncertainties in their design, manufacturing and environmental conditions. Risk analysis combines this information with the consequences of failure in view of optimal decision making. The course presents the underlying probabilistic modelling and computational methods for reliability and risk assessment.
LernzielThe goal of this course is to provide the students with a thorough understanding of the key concepts behind structural reliability and risk analysis. After this course the students will have refreshed their knowledge of probability theory and statistics to model uncertainties in view of engineering applications. They will be able to analyze the reliability of a structure and to use risk assessment methods for decision making under uncertain conditions. They will be aware of the state-of-the-art computational methods and software in this field.
InhaltEngineers are confronted every day to decision making under limited amount of information and uncertain conditions. When designing new structures and systems, the design codes such as SIA or Euro- codes usually provide a framework that guarantees safety and reliability. However the level of safety is not quantified explicitly, which does not allow the analyst to properly choose between design variants and evaluate a total cost in case of failure. In contrast, the framework of risk analysis allows one to incorporate the uncertainty in decision making.

The first part of the course is a reminder on probability theory that is used as a main tool for reliability and risk analysis. Classical concepts such as random variables and vectors, dependence and correlation are recalled. Basic statistical inference methods used for building a probabilistic model from the available data, e.g. the maximum likelihood method, are presented.

The second part is related to structural reliability analysis, i.e. methods that allow one to compute probabilities of failure of a given system with respect to prescribed criteria. The framework of reliability analysis is first set up. Reliability indices are introduced together with the first order-second moment method (FOSM) and the first order reliability method (FORM). Methods based on Monte Carlo simulation are then reviewed and illustrated through various examples. By-products of reliability analysis such as sensitivity measures and partial safety coefficients are derived and their links to structural design codes is shown. The reliability of structural systems is also introduced as well as the methods used to reassess existing structures based on new information.

The third part of the course addresses risk assessment methods. Techniques for the identification of hazard scenarios and their representation by fault trees and event trees are described. Risk is defined with respect to the concept of expected utility in the framework of decision making. Elements of Bayesian decision making, i.e. pre-, post and pre-post risk assessment methods are presented.

The course also includes a tutorial using the UQLab software dedicated to real world structural reliability analysis.
SkriptSlides of the lectures are available online every week. A printed version of the full set of slides is proposed to the students at the beginning of the semester.

KurzbeschreibungFundamentals of structural dynamics are presented. Computing the response of elastic single and multiple DOF structural systems subjected to harmonic, periodic, pulse, and impulse is discussed. Practical solutions to vibration problems in flexible structures under diverse excitations are developed.
LernzielAfter successful completion of this course the students will be able to:
1. Explain the dynamic equilibrium of structures under dynamic loading.
2. Use second-order differential equations to theoretically and numerically model the dynamic equilibrium of structural systems.
3. Model structural systems using single-degree-of-freedom and multiple-degree-of-freedom models.
4. Compute the dynamic response of structural system to harmonic, periodic, pulse, and impulse excitation using time-history and response-spectrum methods.
5. Use dynamics of structures to identify the basis for structural design code provisions related to dynamic loading.
InhaltThis is a course on structural dynamics, an extension of structural analysis for loads that induce significant inertial forces and vibratory response of structures. Dynamic responses of elastic and inelastic single-degree-of-freedom and multiple-degree-of-freedom structural systems subjected to harmonic, periodic, pulse, and impulse excitation are discussed. Theoretical background and engineering guidelines for practical solutions to vibration problems in flexible structures caused by humans, machinery, wind or explosions are presented.
SkriptThe class will be taught mainly on the blackboard.

InhaltFibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites are increasingly being used in civil infrastructure applications, such as reinforcing rods, tendons and FRP profiles as well as wraps for seismic upgrading of columns and repair of deteriorated structures. The objective of this course is on one hand to provide new generation of engineering students with an overall awareness of the application and design of FRP reinforcing materials for internal and external strengthening (repair) of reinforced concrete structures. The FRP strengthening of other structures such as metallic and timber will also be shortly discussed. On the other hand the course will provide guidance to students seeking additional information on the topic. Many practical cases will be presented analysed and discussed. An ongoing structural health monitoring of these new materials is necessary to ensure that the structures are performing as planned, and that the safety and integrity of structures is not compromised. The course outlines some of the primary considerations to keep in mind when designing and utilizing structural health monitoring technologies. During the course, students will have the opportunity to design FRP strengthened concrete beams and columns, apply the FRP by themselves, and finally test their samples up to failure.
