A computer-implemented method includes, in one aspect, receiving a request for a spatial analysis of building behavior of an entity within a building facility; retrieving building maintenance information about the entity within the building facility; accessing a building information model for the building facility; identifying a portion of the building information model that pertains to the entity; and based on the retrieved building maintenance information and the identified portion of the building information model, generating the spatial analysis of the building behavior for the entity within the building facility.


Computational modeling of self-assembly in deformable bodies
Bilgin, Koçak; Göktepe, Serdar; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-9)
Self-assembly is a process in which an irregular system transforms into a regular pattern or an organized structure through local interactions between the components of the material without any external influence. Therefore, self-assembly has great potential in the synthesis and manufacture of new materials. Although the main focus in the literature is mostly on self-assembly at the molecular level, there are many exciting applications of the self-assembling processes at larger scales. Space and time-varyin...
Procedure for determining seismic vulnerability of building structures
Gulkan, P; Sozen, MA (1999-05-01)
A rationalization for ranking reinforced concrete frame buildings with masonry infill walls with regard to seismic vulnerability is presented The method essentially requires only the dimensions of the structure as input, and is expressed in terms of where its attributes are located in a two-dimensional plot of masonry wall and column percentages. It is shown that increasing drift at the ground story (which is a reasonable expression of increasing vulnerability) is attained by decreasing either attribute It ...
Coarse-to-Fine Matching of Shapes Using Disconnected Skeletons by Learning Class-Specific Boundary Deformations
Erdem, Aykut; Tarı, Zehra Sibel (2009-05-28)
Disconnected skeleton [1] is a very coarse yet a very stable skeleton-based representation scheme for generic shape recognition in which recognition is performed mainly based on the structure of disconnection points of extracted branches, without explicitly using information about boundary details [2,3]. However, sometimes sensitivity to boundary details may be required in order to achieve the goal of recognition. In this study, we first present a simple way to enrich disconnected skeletons with radius func...
Limitations in structural identification of large constructed structures
Catbas, F. N.; Ciloglu, S. K.; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Grimmelsman, K.; Aktan, A. E. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2007-08-01)
The objective of this paper is to discuss the limitations in structural identification of large constructed structures. These limitations arise due to the geometric complexity, uncertain boundary and continuity conditions, loading environment, and the imperfect knowledge and errors in modeling such large constructed facilities. In this paper, the writers present their studies on developing a mixed microscopic-structural element level three-dimensional finite-element (FE) modeling of a long-span bridge struc...
Investigation of model updating techniques and their applications to aircraft structures
Kozak, Mustafa Tuğrul; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
Mathematical models that are built in order to simulate the behavior of structures, most often, tend to respond differently than the actual structures in their initial state. In order to use the mathematical models and their computational outputs instead of testing the real structure under every possible case, it is mandatory to have a mathematical model that reflects the characteristics of the actual structure in the best possible way. In this thesis, the so called model updating techniques used for updati...
