Interface for geotechnical calculations


I am writing a masterthesis about BIM in geotechnic.

I created a subsoil model (Imported in Revit as .dwg) and a model of the shoring of the building pit in Revit (without geotechnical verifications).

Now I want to model the reinforcement and do the geotechnical calculations. I will model the reinforcement with Sofistik in Revit.

So I have one question and I couldn’t find a good answer for that on your website:

Is it possible to directly import the geometries from Revit into Sofistik and make the geotechnical calculations there?

I only found the application WALLS-Verbau, but I didn’t see, that there is a good interface to Revit there.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hello Sauerbrey

You can export walls with the SOFiSTiK analysis and design tool. Apart from that it is not possible to export subsoil elements from Revit to SOFiSTiK. You can try to open the subsoil model (.dwg) with SOFiPLUS(-X) and define the shoring of the building there.
Aside from these tips, I don’t think there is a suggested BIM-workflow for geotechnical analyses.
