Automation in Construction | Year: 2013
Augmented Reality (AR) has the potential to change how people interact and experience their surrounding environment. During the last decade a considerable amount of research has been undertaken within the built environment. With this in mind, this paper aims to provide a state-of-the-art review of mainstream studies undertaken between 2005 and 2011 within the normative literature. We found that a total of 120 articles were published in the normative built environment literature within this period. Articles were classified according to their concept and theory, implementation, evaluation (effectiveness and usability) and industrial adoption. The classification of the literature has enabled gaps in the AR literature to be identified and future research directions to be proposed. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Automation in Construction | Year: 2015
Four-dimensional (4D) modeling has gained much potential in improving construction process design and planning. The integration of three-dimensional model with scheduling information has been shown to enable the effective detection of construction process design and planning flaws. However, the research work in 4D has been predominantly focused on the building construction industry. 4D has been rarely explored in the oil and gas industry, particularly Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant construction. It is very difficult to conceive the scale and complexity of mega-projects in the LNG sector. This paper presents a study with the goal of investigating the feasibility and benefits of 4D in supporting LNG construction projects. 4D models were developed at both the activity level and the operations level, and geometry-based virtual construction was implemented to rehearse the construction process for the purpose of identifying potential risks and safety issues. These models were used for synergistic planning for the whole project and for resource scheduling. It has been demonstrated in this paper, mega LNG construction projects can benefit from 4D in terms of improved process planning and control. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
