Managing Construction Operations Visually: 3-D Techniques for Complex Topography and Restricted Visibility
Rodriguez, Walter; Opdenbosh, Augusto; Santamaria, Juan Carlos
Engineering Design Graphics Journal, v70 n2 p7-16 Spr 2006
Visual information is vital in planning and managing construction operations, particularly, where there is complex terrain topography and salvage operations with limited accessibility and visibility. From visually-assessing site operations and preventing equipment collisions to simulating material handling activities to supervising remotes sites and underwater salvage and recovery efforts, project managers rely heavily on visual cues and 3-D data gathered from the site and, preferable, before actual site construction or underwater recovery efforts begin. This paper presents the background and state-of-the-art in the development of construction visualization techniques for dynamic 3-D modeling, rendering, manipulating, evaluating, collaborating, and managing construction sites and underwater operations. (Contains 5 figures.)
