  • Abstract


    The assessment of soil parameters in construction holds significant importance for refining building information modeling (BIM). Our study aimed to investigate the adaptive utilization of pressure sensor data as a dynamic and computationally efficient tool for this purpose. The results reveal a significant correlation between the pressure sensor readings of the hydraulic cylinder in the excavator bucket and the total load during static-dynamic penetration tests conducted in both homogeneous and heterogeneous soil. This correlation holds true across a 100% range of torque, with values recorded at 0.60 and 0.93, respectively. A key strength of this methodology lies in that it enables near real-time detection of verified boundary levels. This feature streamlines the adoption and development of BIM-based excavation methods that seamlessly align with current practical conditions.
