Dynamic Simulation Of Construction Activities Using Real Time Field Data Collection


Simulation has been evolved to facilitate the process of designing, analyzing, planning and controlling of engineering processes and to aid decision-makers in setting long term project goals. Computer simulation tools thus provide an opportunity for engineers to create models that represent activities, resources, and the environment under which a project is taking place. However, such models would be more useful if they include latest project updates and changes to help engineers in short term decision-making and control, and to assist in taking immediate corrective actions. This paper presents a novel concept in construction simulation and the latest results of an ongoing research that uses dynamic data driven application simulation (DDDAS) and real time filed data collection to create live animations and self-adaptive simulations of ongoing construction projects.
