Abstract:

The development of an open ontology for the design phase of typical heating, ventilating, and air conditioning HVAC systems was documented in ERDC-CERL Contract Report CR-12-2 March 2012. It was developed following Information Delivery Manual IDM and Model View Definition MVD procedures defined by the International Organization for Standardization ISO and the buildingSMART Alliance. The purpose of the work was to promote consistency and quality of content created for Building Information Models BIMs across various disciplines. The HVAC MVD was tested in a separate task, as documented in this report, through its implementation in three example BIMs based on experimental architectural models provided by ERDC-CERL. HVAC equipment and systems were added to those architectural models using a commercial off-the-shelf COTS modeling package. Industry Foundation Class IFC models were then generated using the software s IFC export function and reviewed for compliance with the reference HVAC MVD.
