Abstract
There is a notable trend within the building industry to move from traditional two-dimensional drawing
tools towards three-dimensional design tools in order to make the design process more effective with a
quicker and more rational way to produce blue prints and other documents. Parallel to this trend it is
also become more common for structural engineers to use three dimensional tools for structural
analysis. It is the same type of information which is used to create the blue print as well as the
structural building model therefore making this an incentive for software developers in trying to come
up with a way to automatically transfer building models between different types of applications as this

There is a notable trend within the building industry to move from traditional two-dimensional drawing
tools towards three-dimensional design tools in order to make the design process more effective with a
quicker and more rational way to produce blue prints and other documents. Parallel to this trend it is
also become more common for structural engineers to use three dimensional tools for structural
analysis. It is the same type of information which is used to create the blue print as well as the
structural building model therefore making this an incentive for software developers in trying to come
up with a way to automatically transfer building models between different types of applications as this
is an obvious way to save expensive engineering time.
This Master‟s Project has been carried out with the purpose of analyzing the potential of a BIM design
process for bridge structures with focus on hands on strategies for automatic transfer of building
models between design tools and tools for structural analysis. Compared to a two dimensional CAD building model, a parameterized three dimensional BIM model
is composed in a entirely different and more sophisticated way as it rests on an object oriented data
structure which opens up for a broad spectra of new technical applications such as automatic
construction scheduling, billing of quantities and collision control. This new technique also opens up
for an inter-disciplinary work in a shared building model making the design process more effective.
However, discipline specific applications are generally not compatible with each other as software
vendors usually employ proprietary file formats within their software environment. This report
presents a method that enables automatic file transfer of building models via the neutral IFC file
format. (Less)
