Abstract

For the submarine excavation of the anchorage foundation for the Kurushima Bridge connecting Honshu and Sikoku, a computer aided construction system was set up and used to strictly control all the construction processes, including the submarine topography survey prior to excavation, routine excavation, finish and confirmation of the excavated sea bed. The result was savings in time and manpower, and improvement in quality. High quality control of construction was achieved. In this paper we will introduce the computer aided construction system that was developed for the above project. At the same time, we will report on research into computer aided construction, which has shown great promise as a new construction method for marine projects.
