Paper Abstract

The Chinese traditional architecture belongs to an experience type construction system with strict standardization. In wooden structure design and construction, the modulization and standardization is required, which just corresponds to the requirement of standardization and precision of CAD in nowadays. Therefore, CAD can be applied to measure and record historic architecture. In the 2D imaging, the single members such as dou (bracket set) gong (bracket arm), beams, columns and other basic units can be recorded accurately through CAD to build up a relative database system as well as to provide basic data platform for studying the whole wooden frameworks. Meantime, such data can be used again while redesign. Furthermore, area models could be also applied to the urban conservation arrangement of ancient imperial palace, imperial city and capital city. The 3D mathematical model shows the scene of single building, groups of building and their details directly. According to the various types of buildings, with the different precisions, parameterized model base is established for further research and application.
