The Parametric design of adaptive joints

Building information modeling (BIM) has had a big impact on modern engineering. Through the information contained in the models, engineers are able to interpret and organize a vast amount of data. During a conceptual design phase, a digital platform based on a Knowledge-based engineering (KBE) model helps in eliminating poor designs, enhancing the process. This paper examines the possibility of direct contact between a computer aided three-dimensional interactive application (e.g. CATIA) and a Finite Element Software. The goal is to create a method for quick export of building information model from common CAD-software to an advanced finite element analysis. An approach is derived in which the necessary data from the pre-processor phase is generated for a finite element simulation.
