A 2 - day Advanced Technical Training Program on “BIM Software Tools”, for Fresh Civil Engineers and Students is happening at Vasireddy Venkatadri Institute of Technology, Nambur, from 08th March 2018 to 09th March 2018.
Sri K.Srinivasa Murthy, Director (Engineering), Vigilance and Enforcement Department in this regard informed that there is a need of awareness to upcoming civil engineers about various tools and technologies which were adopted by developed countries in order to serve society in a fruitful manner by applying their knowledge in Engineering with the help of various tools and technologies. He also suggested students to get aware about various disciplines in civil engineering by concerning experts and fix their aim at graduate level and work hard to reach their goals. Sri Srinivasa Murthy commended the efforts of VVIT for organizing this kind of advanced training programs for the faculty and students and for providing a conducive environment for training. He also appreciated the participants for being active learners.
Dr.Y.Mallikarjuna Reddy, Principal of VVIT addressed that various software tools are used in different disciplines of Civil engineering in this decade. He also addressed that upcoming Civil engineers must have expertise in various related software in order to compete with competitive world.
Dr.T.Sreedhar Babu, Head of the Department, Civil Engineering informed that a shift in process and expectation is happening in the Indian construction market following the economic bloom and gloom, and architects are stepping up to the challenge. The focus is shifting from traditional 2D based to a practical reality with respect to functional, economic, energy, etc. All disciplines involved with a project can share a single database. Architecture, structure, mechanical, electrical, infrastructure, and construction are tied together and challenge to coordinating them is unprecedentedly possible. Energy analysis can be done at early stage of design, and construction costs are becoming more predictable. BIM allows use of a parametric 3D model to auto generate traditional building documents such as plans, sections, elevations, details, and schedules. Drawings produced using BIM supported Software, are not of manually coordinated lines, but interactive representations of a model. The changes made in this Model are automatically coordinated throughout the project, which eliminate the coordination mistakes, improve overall quality of the work. Dr.Sridhar Babu, said every Civil Engineering student must be aware of this technology for integrating their core knowledge with it.
Convener of this Training program Prof. N.Kumara Swamy, Dean of Academics,VVIT, in this regard informed that the program will have four technical section, the first technical section on morning section of first day will consist of Basic concept of BIM, Evolution of BIM, Advantage of BIM, Role of Participants in BIM process. The noon section on first day will consist of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in India, Barriers in implementation of BIM, BIM standards, BIM Tools. On the second day the first section will deal with Architecture and Structural tools, Revit Architecture and Structures, Revit structural analysis and the concluding section will have Robot structural analysis, Energy analysis tools, Shadow analysis tool Lighting analysis tool.
Management members Sri Badari Prasad, Secretary, Sri M.SreeKrishna, Joint Secretary and Dr.Y.Mallikarjuna Reddy, Principal, Dr. T.Sreedhar Babu, HOD, Civil Engineering, Prof.N.KumaraSwamy, Dean Academics, felicitated the Chief Guest Sri K.Srinivasa Murthy, as a token of respect for his scholarly sessions.
All the Civil Engineering Students, Faculty of Civil Department of VVIT and registered candidates from nearby institutes were participating in this Two days Advanced Technical Training program on the BIM Software Tools.
