... C-1   A P P E N D I X C Emerging Inspection Technology Applications C.1 3-D/4-D/5-D Modeling What Is It? It is visualization and image modeling technology that provides a virtual representation and visualization of project components and work progress.
From page 72...
... C-2 Risk-Based Construction Inspection: A Guide • "66% savings for grade checking, up to 85% for reduction of stakes, 3% to 6% by volume for improved material yields, and 30% to 50% for uninterrupted earthmoving production. These results can equate to a savings of 4% to 6% of total project costs by using 3D models.
From page 73...

From page 77...
... Emerging Inspection Technology Applications C-7   Table C-4. Use of sensor technology.
From page 78...
... C-8 Risk-Based Construction Inspection: A Guide Why Use It? These electronic devices and their applications increase the productivity of field-generated data, decrease the cycle time of data available to other construction staff, and decrease the time required for contract administrative duties.
From page 79...
... Emerging Inspection Technology Applications C-9   Additional Resources Yamaura, J., and Muench, S
From page 80...
... C-10 Risk-Based Construction Inspection: A Guide Table C-6. Use of LiDAR technology.

From page 88...
... C-18 Risk-Based Construction Inspection: A Guide When to Use It Electronic field books can help with data organization, data documentation, data exchange, and data access. Table C-11 summarizes project types and works where electronic field books can be used to support inspection and alleviate staffing shortages.
From page 89...
... Emerging Inspection Technology Applications C-19   should not be confused with digital surface models, which may include objects on the ground's surface. DTMs are produced via multiple methods but often through remote sensing modes, such as photogrammetry, in lieu of traditional surveying methods.
From page 90...
... C-20 Risk-Based Construction Inspection: A Guide Table C-12. Use of digital terrain models.
From page 91...
