Modeling Civil Engineered Systems

In this module students will get an introduction into product modeling theory, which not only forms the basis of state-of-the-art Building Information Systems, but is also required to organize and structure any complex engineering effort within the realm of civil engineering. The module will shed a light on ontologies and information models based from the viewpoint of semiotic theory and logic. Related concepts such as level of detail, abstraction, and interpretation are introduced to provide insights in how to best computationally model engineered systems to support knowledge intensive engineering work. Students will here gain the required skills to represent and describe all type of civil engineering objects with their components, functions, and properties ranging from buildings to infrastructure. To ground the theoretical part of the module, students will also gain practical hands on experiences modeling complex infrastructure and building systems using state of the art ontology modeling software. Additionally, rich practical case studies and advanced topics from the field of systems engineering will be introduced to show the need for adequate models to support the engineering of complex civil infrastructure and building systems. Among these concepts are for example ontological reasoning, parametric modelling, requirements management, configuration management, information management, cost and risk engineering, or control engineering.
