Advances in Digital Engineering, Computing, and Simulation for the AEC Industry

Special issue call for papers from Engineering, Construction and Architectural Management

The world is now in the early stages of the 4th industrial revolution, with technologies fusing to blur the line between digital and physical systems. This represents the opportunity to develop highly integrated and situationally-aware management systems for effective decision making. In addition, the complexity of construction and engineering problems has increased significantly over the past few years. Due to the rapid recognition of construction automation, future workforces and researchers need to understand how construction and engineering assets can be managed intelligently by integrating advanced equipment, computing and simulation platforms for asset monitoring, real-time planning, collaborative supply chain and automated site execution.

The aim of this special issue is to investigate recent advances in the development of digital engineering, computing and simulation for the AEC industry so that a traditional experience-based decision making process can be usefully improved to a data-driven one. Themes of the special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Building Information Modelling
  • Information Technology
  • Sensing and Tracking Technology
  • Construction Robotics
  • Visualization
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Digital Engineering
  • Information Management
  • Mathematical Optimization
  • Data Analytics
  • Applications
