Abstract:
In 2014, ACI Committee 131, Building Information Modeling of Concrete Structures, published its first document: “Information Delivery Manual (IDM) for Cast-in-Place Concrete (ACI 131.1R-14).” The report was created through a collaboration between concrete contractors, reinforcing bar fabricators, software vendors, engineers, ready mixed concrete suppliers, and industry organizations. The IDM summarizes the cast-in-place concrete industry by defining design and construction processes and information flow required by these processes.
