“Building Information Modeling” BIM is transforming the way we build. Fitting technologies, people and processes together BIM provides new levels of efficiency and flexibility throughout the building lifecycle.
In the building sector, BIM has already proven that it brings benefits such as higher efficiency and transparency, more collaboration among project stakeholders, significant time and cost savings as well as reduction of the project risks. However, the examples of the rail projects – Metro Green Line in Qatar and Northwest Rail Link in Australia, where BIM is being implemented successfully – show that the infrastructure industry also has potential to benefit from innovative methods such as BIM. The five main components of BIM – technology, people, process, policy and management – are explained. Interest from the public sector across different countries is steadily rising in mandating BIM on a national scale. Education and further education opportunities are in great demand and consequently addressed in this article.
BIM models with five dimensions – three for geometry and two further ones for time and costs – are intended to enhance the construction process and the quality of executing the construction of infrastructure projects. This article explains how innovative intelligent mobile tools from the RIB Software AG further the exchange of information between the construction site and office.
Escape doors are of central importance when tunnel facilities are planned. Apart from functionality and safety, maintenance and service as well as life cycle costs usually extending over 50 years must be taken into consideration. Incorporating these aspects into planning at an early stage by clients and contractors contributes substantially to safe, functional and economic solutions.
The Arlberg Tunnel is Austria`s longest road tunnel. The present general overhaul of this main transport artery designed to enhance traffic safety represents a major logistical challenge albeit it is unavoidable. This report examines the extent of redevelopment and the approach adopted by the ASFINAG to master the challenges posed.
For decades, Sandvik worked with various tunnelling projects around the world. Exemplarily two current case stories using tunnelling jumbos are described briefly. The longtime experience is applied to innovations and has influenced the innovative and enhanced tunnel jumbo type depicted in this article.
Industrie 4.0 – The Industrial Internet of Things Hidden Champion
Highly automated Systems in Underground Mining Operations
Apart from classical fields of application associated with the name Industrie 4.0 (Industrial Internet of Things) such as production and mobility, underground mining is increasingly developing into a hidden champion in this respect. Spurred on by falling prices for raw materials tied to ever increasing demands on humanisation of work the branch soon resorted to approaches to solutions described under “Industrie 4.0”. Fully integrated systems with “part-automated machines, which move through environments without human guidance and make their own decisions, are already reality in mining nowadays. The industry has already succeeded in applying “Mining 4.0”.
SMT Scharf takes over Nowilan
Special Know-how smoothes the Way for providing Systems for Logistics on the Mining and Tunnelling Sector
SMT Scharf AG took over Nowilan Gesellschaft für Antriebstechnik mbH and has evolved further as a provider of logistics systems in the field of mining and tunnelling.
The development of mine rescue towards a higher level of work safety has been successful during the past three decades. Nevertheless, there are still some white spots on the map which include medium to high, and mostly unexplored operational risks. The paper comments on some of these risks and on the related open questions.
The overall objective of underground mining operations is the exploitation and production of existing mineral deposits in an economically efficient manner. Notwithstanding, a safe production is the overall duty of operating companies. To cover these objectives, mining of the 21st century has to move towards an encompassing monitoring and controlling of its operational processes. This article describes the Mine Control System Staircase (MCS©) under development.
