Abstract

This paper describes the use of property graphs for mapping data between AEC software tools, which are not linked by common data formats and/or other interoperability measures. The intention of introducing this in practice, education and research is to facilitate the use of diverse, non-integrated design and analysis applications by a variety of users who need to create customised digital workflows, including those who are not expert programmers. Data model types are examined by way of supporting the choice of directed, attributed, multi-relational graphs for such data transformation tasks. A brief exemplar design scenario is also presented to illustrate the concepts and methods proposed, and conclusions are drawn regarding the feasibility of this approach and directions for further research.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Additional Information:

"These electronic proceedings include the 44 papers which were presented at the 2012 EG-ICE workshop hosted by Technische Universität München in Herrsching, Germany. The papers discuss ongoing research in the field of engineering informatics, i.e. the development of computer science methods and technologies for better supporting engineering activities, particularly focusing on applications in construction engineering and architecture. The topics addressed range from advanced numerical simulations and methods for formally analyzing geometric properties of engineering models, to the simulation and optimization of construction processes. All papers have been reviewed by an international committee of experts with the aim to ensure high quality contributions.
