Parametrization and BrIM in large infrastructure projects – project study from RV3/25 Norway

Svein Erik JakobsenTrond E. Eggen


RV 3/25 is a large infrastructure project consisting of a new 25 km highway in Hedmark County in Norway. The project is organized as a PPP-project and includes 20 concrete bridges and 8 timber glulam arch bridges. In the project the use of BIM-models and parameterization has been significant and has evolved greatly throughout the project. The work ranged from macro BIM with large coordination models with all disciplines included, to micro BIM-models for bridges including all details needed for construction. For 5 concrete bridges, the BIM-model was the only product delivered to the contractor without producing design or construction drawings. For the 8 glulam arch bridges in timber, parameterization was employed for establishing both the BIM-models and the analysis models. This was vital to achieving the goal of following the strict design schedule with a small design team. It also proved very valuable in the shaping phase of the bridges. Between 80% and 90% of the objects in the finalized BIM-models were included in the parameterization. The product delivered to the contractor was design drawings, most of which were generated directly from the BIM-model, thus benefiting from its advantages. The use of BIM has proved to be cost...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
