Automation of the digital information workflow in the geotechnical design process

Keywords: digitalization, OpenBIM, AGS, soil structure interaction, parametric modelling, automation

The geological and geotechnical data are currently extensively digitized on a wide scale. One of the reasons
for this is the facilitation of data exchange using a digital version of geoengineering documentation as well
as the lack of sufficient information on soil and ground water conditions of the given structure in the BIM
models being developed. The article describes various possibilities of using digital information about the
ground obtained from the field investigation in macro and micro scale and laboratory tests, recorded in one of
the digital formats – AGS. The statistical analysis of research results and its interpretation, geological cross-
-sections, generation of soil model described by mathematical relations (Mohr-Coulomb model, hardening
soil) to be included in a FEM 3D numerical model are just a few possibilities which are made available to
us thanks to the geotechnical platforms that are currently created by the design offices. The second part of
the work describes an example showing the use of tools in the automation of the geotechnical design of the
interaction between a structure and the ground using the parametric modelling technology. The paper presents
an example of the application of the ready-made BIM models in geotechnical tools using the Rhino-Grasshopper
environment. Block diagrams presenting the information flow between the BIM modelling programs
(Revit, ArchiCAD), construction calculations (ARSA), and geotechnical analyses (Plaxis, ZSoil) show wide
possibilities of applying these tools in accordance with the concept of OpenBIM.
