Can Implicit Modelling transform the civil engineering industry?

“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
― Abraham H. Maslow

For years the geologists working on civil engineering and environmental projects have grappled with the challenge of building ground models using tools designed for drafting engineering designs.
Traditional engineering design started by drawing 2D sections, plans and elevations to define a 3D structure, which isn’t practical for natural geological structures which are almost never straight and aligned. Geology is a science rather than an engineering discipline because it models the real world instead of designing man-made structures within it. Geology doesn’t come in boxes, triangles, straight lines or even sophisticated Bezier curves. All of these are simply ways of representing the geology on a computer.

Unearthed report for Civil Engineering and Environment industry

Have you ever thought about the science that goes into building a bridge? It’s not all about the engineering – it’s also about the geology.

Geology is a science, rather than an engineering discipline because it models the real world as opposed to building structures within it. By definition, geology is the study of earth’s composition and the methods we use to study it are rapidly changing.

With the global launch of our latest software, Leapfrog Works, we have released the Unearthed Report – a global briefing on the technology and innovation revolutionising the Civil Engineering and Environmental industries.
