Abstract

Growing number of Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications have supported the automated assessment of building design and its quality in the early phase of design. For increasing the accuracy and fineness of assessment, rule interpretations require logical base and standardization of analysis process. Therefore, some governmentfunded research projects have focused on this rule-making process separated from the rule-checking process. Specifically, KBimLogic is a logic rule-based mechanism designed for the building permit related rules in Korea Building Act sentences. As a com-puter-readable definition of a rule, KBimCode has been developed to be executed in actual rule-checking software. The limitation of such code is the visibility to the rule experts who are usually non- or novice programmers. This paper describes much intuitive way of defining and generating KBimCode through KBim Visual Language. User can easily query the building element and method through the immanent connection with KBimLogic database. By using the KBim Visual Language, various types of rules written in design guideline, international standardization, and national acts can be easily interpreted into computer-readable formats such as KBimCode in order to proceed with the automated rule-checking.
