—The Korea Institute of Construction Technology
(KICT) developed the K-slip form system by improving radically
the previous slip form system for the erection of the tapered
concrete pylon of super long span bridge. This innovative K-slip
form system adopts the latest tapered slip form design technology
using BIM, lightweight GFRP module favoring the early strength
development of concrete owing to its outstanding insulation,
electromotive spindle for the sectional adjustment, estimation
system of concrete strength using ultrasonic wave, remote control
system of the hydraulic jacks for the raising of slip form, and
GPS-based configuration management system. A 10 m-high
concrete pylon was erected successfully within 5 days using the
K-slip form system as a mockup test. This paper focuses on the
KICT Integrated Configuration Control System (KICS)
developed for the configuration management of the tapered
concrete pylon during its erection. The performance and
applicability of KICS are validated through comparison of the
measurement results provided simultaneously by the GPS-based
KICS and the monitoring system traditionally adopted on site.
