Abstract

This project created an alternative support system for the suspended track in WPI’s new Recreation Center. The development of the alternative design primarily addressed structural integrity. A comparative analysis between the existing and alternative design was completed for the design, cost, and schedule. Two Building Information Modeling software applications: Autodesk Robot and Revit were used in supporting the study. Robot was explored as a new program in structural analysis and Revit was used to create 4-D models of both designs.
