Description

This guide provides a protocol for the exchange of data related to reinforcing steel between software applications. This guide presents a human-readable list of reinforcing steel entities, attributes, property sets, and relationships, with sufficient specificity so that the format and syntax for machine-readable exchanges based on Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) can be employed, enhanced, or developed. This specific set of exchange requirements is referred to as a model view definition (MVD). Material and geometric attributes, property sets, and relationships, both required and optional, that address most reinforced concrete applications for buildings and nonbuilding structures are presented. This guide is intended to be used by building information modeling (BIM) software developers to assist in the development of consistent and accurate exchanges of reinforcing steel information between applications.

Keywords: attribute; building information modeling; model view definition; Industry Foundation Classes; reinforcing steel.
