ISM

Bentley’s Integrated Structural Modeling (ISM) is a technology for sharing structural engineering project information among structural modeling, analysis, design, drafting and detailing applications.

ISM is similar to Building Information Modelingprocess of modeling and communicating the structure of a building in detail to benefit the entire construction life cycle

BIM facilitates the exchange and use of building information in a digital format.

), but focuses on the information that is important in the design, construction and modification of the load bearing components of buildings, bridges and other structures. Full product details can be found on their website.

The ISM link is different form the other analysis and design links in that the physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built

is also transferred at the same time as the analysis and design modelstructural model that is created from a physical model and used on the one hand for analyzing structural behavior and load bearing, and on the other hand for design

Analysis model can be viewed in Tekla Structures in a model view.

Analysis model that is made with Tekla Structures can be worked on in other analysis and design software or application.

and the ISM model can be imported into an empty Tekla Structures model. The round-trip of model informationinformation stored to the model

Model information covers, for example, model objects, and drawing and project information.

is also controlled by a synchronizer.

If Tekla Structures and an ISM enabled Analysis & Design applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation

or Bentley Viewer v8i are installed on the same computer then a direct link can be used.

In order to use the link, the ISM Structural Synchronizer version 3.0 needs to be loaded before the link.
