Semantic Bridge Community Group

No matter in research or in industrial practice, the implementation area of Building Information Modelling (BIM) has extended from ordinary buildings to infrastructure, of which obviously bridges are an indispensable component. Thus, this group gathering the experts from BIM globally aims at establishing a semantic reference standard. This standard will cover the entire aspects in the life cycle of a bridge for the purpose of representing important elements and the logic relations among them in the phases of, e.g. design, construction, structural analysis, monitoring, renovation, facility management, etc.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.
