During the building design phase, the quality and construction costs of buildings can be significantly influenced by finding the optimal structural shape. With the introduction of Building Information Modeling (BIM), three-dimensional design models are increasingly used. This opens up new possibilities. Utilizing parametric and automated derivations of analysis models, different supporting structure options can be evaluated in terms of ultimate limit state and serviceability, but also according to architectural criteria. This Master thesis aims at developing the basic procedure of this parametric BIM workflow and at implementing it utilizing a specific example.

The thesis is divided into the following parts:

  1. Introduction to parametric model creation using Autodesk Revit and Dynamo as an example.
  2. Development and presentation of a basic concept to include Revit/Dynamo - RFEM/RSTAB
  3. Programming a simple example utilizing Dynamo and RFEM/RF-COM
  4. Evaluation and review
  5. Possible extensions and synergy potentials
  6. Discussion and documentation of the results

With the free student license, I can familiarize myself with the software and use it during my studies

"RSTAB is a software program that I recently discovered and which is very helpful for the calculation of steel structures. With the available webinars on the Dlubal website, I have familiarized myself with the various functions of the program. With the free student license, I can familiarize myself with the software and use it during my studies. I especially recommend it to civil engineering students."
