Environmental impact as a parameter in concrete construction parametric associative models

By M Dijk, I Blom, TAM Theo Salet and PCP Patrick Marinus


A practical engineering tool is being developed for structural engineers. The tool allows for an engineer to quickly evaluate structural element design variations for structural performance, while adding information on environmental performance. This paper explains the structure of the tool and uses the design of a concrete beam element as a case to demonstrate its functioning. The tool is to be expanded to include more materials, building costs and complete building structures in its intended environment
