Applicability Of 4d Modeling For Resource Allocation Of Mega Liquefied Natural Gas Plant Construction

Good Essays
a) I read an article named “applicability of 4D modeling for resource allocation in mega liquefied natural gas plant construction” in Automation in Construction. The authors are Ying Zhou (Huazhong University of Science &Technology), Lieyun Ding Huazhong (University of Science &Technology), Xiangyu Wang (Curtin University), Martijn Truijens (Australasian Joint Research Centre for Building Information Modeling), Hanbin Luo (Kyung Hee University). b) This paper presented that four-dimensional (4D) modeling has gained much potential in improving construction process design and planning. It gave readers a description about the tradition approach in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant construction and the development of it. Then the author described a process of an example where 4D models were applied to an offshore LNG plant construction project. At last the paper made a conclusion that the 4D models played an important tool for LNG construction projects and planning and the scheduling of resources. The focus of this article is similar to a topic covered in CVEN 638. The topic is “Digital Cities”. In the class, the professor gave us the concept of digital cities. A digital city platform allow for heterogeneous 2D, 3D and 4D temporal data to be brought together in a comprehensive format. Here the 4D model means the time streamline will be added in the model visualization in order to improve the efficiency of scheduling, planning and cite communication. It’s
