When, back in 2011, the UK government announced that all public sector projects over Â£5 million would have to use BIM by 2016, they facilitated a change in the construction industry that could not have been imagined. At the time it was announced there was a high level of resistance from the industry, mainly based on the cost of investment required. But as companies adopted BIM they started to see almost immediate cost savings. In particular, main contractors found that they could make significant savings through the anticipation - and hence avoidance - of on-site clashes.
Consequently BIM is being rapidly adopted not just for public sector projects but for private sector ones as well.
Through experimental analysis, James Norman, Joel Ross, Robbie Kirkbride and Toby Hill-Smith outline the damping exhibited in these complex beams.
