Natural disasters such as bushfires, wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods cause significant socioeconomic losses with associated damages to communities. From 2005 to 2014, the worldwide damage caused by disasters has been more than US$1.4 trillion, with 0.7 million deaths and 1.7 billion people affected. In order to reduce the negative impacts of disasters and strengthening communities, the disaster resilience topic has been receiving increased attention to maximize the ability of communities to adapt and recover fast. Disaster resilience can benefit from Building information modeling (BIM) as an effective tool to facilitate informed decision-making. This article provides a comprehensive review of the existing literature on BIM applications in disaster resilience. Past research studies are categorized by the year of publications, type of disasters (fire, earthquake, flood), phase of the disaster (mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery), and target groups (buildings, infrastructures). The paper aims to provide a holistic review of research trends and patterns, emerging technologies, benefits, challenges and limitations, and research gaps.trends and patterns, emerging technologies, benefits, challenges and limitations, and research gaps.
