Automated code checking and accessibility
Drogemuller, Robin & Ding, Lan (2006) Automated code checking and accessibility. In Aoud, Ghassan, Lee, Angela, & Wu, Song (Eds.) Constructing the future : nD modelling. Taylor and Francis, United Kingdom, London, pp. 126-141.
This book introduces the concept of nD modelling, which takes the theory of computer modelling of the built environment to n dimensions. nD modelling utilises a decision support tool for systematic assessment and comparison between various design parameters such as cost, accessibility, maintainability, sustainability, crime, energy, whole life costing, acoustics and scheduling among others. Constructing the Future is a comprehensive book which provides a global perspective on the concept of nD modelling and examines its impact on construction, from development to application. The text offers a critique of competing views that seek to justify (or ignore) the role of nD modelling in the future of construction as well as describing developments in this area which are already happening worldwide. Presenting a thorough critique of competing views as well as providing guidance on best practice, Constructing the Future is a bold, well-grounded and illustrated title introducing construction management professionals and researchers to this exciting new development in the quest for a single building and product model.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
