ACBM is poised to disrupt a $300T real estate industry. Obviously, a project this ambitious can be highly technical. For those readers who wish to dive into a few details without all the jargon, this is for you.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
FEA is the simulation and analysis of any given physical phenomenon using the numerical technique called Finite Element Method (FEM). Engineers use FEA to lessen the building of excess prototypes. This reduces trial and error to quickly create better components during the design stage. FEA relies on mathematics to resolve the impact of separate particles, elements and objects interacting with each other within a simulated environment. For each construction project to be undertaken FEA can be used to determine how to create a complex architectural design. The designer works more efficiently, saving a lot of trial and error. Resulting costs are less, while accuracy is maintained.
According to Siemens, “To simulate the effects of real-world working environments in FEA, various load types can be applied to the FE model including nodal (forces, moments, displacements, velocities, accelerations), elemental (distributed loading, pressure, temperature and heat flux), as well as acceleration body loads (gravity). Types of FE analysis include linear statistics, nonlinear statics and dynamics, normal modes, dynamic response, buckling and heat transfer.” FEA is one Universal System with multiple benefits.
Monetized /Modular Building Units (MBUs)
MBUs hold unique value because they divide the construction process into self-complete units. These units provide surface finishes, plumbing, heating, electrical installation, structural integrity and seismic preparedness and more. Each MBU is a uniquely identifiable NFT that ties into block chain through IoT. MBUs can be quickly assembled by robots. Specialization of construction tasks and division of labour allow any size building to be constructed by the new AECR Operating System. Fintech enables these MBUs to be traded on the Block Exchange as a ERC 721 or an ERC 1155 token (NFT). Thanks to the Block Exchange, Blocks can be efficiently traded and supplied as a commodity. Members can us MBUs to borrow, finance, flip, buy and sell units.
MBU self-complete building units can also be disassembled later for reconstruction at new building locations. Re-use saves time, material, environmental and resupply cost. Temporary structures can be assembled quickly for purposes such as rescue housing.
Overall, the system will enhance efficiencies across multiple fields to benefit the world in many ways.
