Lecture Series on BIM in transport infrastructure
In cooperation with the Dresden University of Applied Sciences (HTW Dresden) and the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, A+S is organizing the lecture series “BIM in transport infrastructure” at the Technical University of Dresden (TU Dresden).
Dr. Veit Appelt, managing director of A+S Consult GmbH, was appointed b the TU Dresden as a lecturer for BIM in transport. The lectures will be held together with other BIM experts for A+S and BTU Cottbus, Dr. Klaus Tilger and Jens Bartnitzek, who bring in their specialist knowledge of mathematics and computer science. Practical experience from the fields of geoinformatics, geodesy, geology/hydrology, environment, traffic, KIB, structural engineering, noise, etc. flows from practical projects with numerous partners and a broad software landscape. Due to the current situation, the lecture is held online as a web seminar and is has met with a high degree of acceptance from the students.
The lecture series will first give an introduction to BIM and cover important workflows for digital twin, as-built, planning, construction and maintenance including customer information requirements and BIM execution plan. In detail, the involved technical models and objects of the infrastructure are explained in different workflows. In a practical part, students can create and evaluate their own overall BIM model including road, rail, energy, environment, vegetation, building development and accident data.
A+S is pleased that a number of external experts will also report on practical experience and enrich the lecture series in the form of guest lectures. Mr. Dirk Röder, BIM representative of the State Office for Road Construction and Transport Saxony, spoke about the challenge of introducing BIM technologies in the Saxon road construction administration. Dr. Dirk Ebersbach, managing director of VIA IMC GmbH, will also give a guest lecture as part of the lecture series. Dr. Roland Spannaus will report from the BIM pilot for guidance and security technology of DB Netze, Ms. Simone Eckert and Ms. Susan Müller will report on the overall coordination model for execution planning, construction and as-built model of the Dortmund traffic station.
We would like to thank the participating universities for the opportunity to use our practical knowledge in teaching and to contribute to the training of young engineers!
