Determination of Creep Properties of Clays from VRS Oedometer Tests
The determination of creep properties still relies almost entirely on the incrementally loaded oedometer test introduced about 100 years ago. Although the simplicity of the test assures a robust evaluation of soil parameters, ...
Combination of permanent and variable loads
This paper concentrates on the combination of permanent and variable loads in the structural probability theory and its implementation in codes. In the current codes, the permanent and variable loads are sometimes combined ...
Corrosion of steel in carbonated concrete : Mechanisms, practical experience, and research priorities – A critical review by RILEM TC 281-CCC
Carbonation of concrete is in the concrete and cement research community often assumed to lead to reinforcing steel corrosion. This mindset has long dictated the research priorities surrounding the developments towards ...
Development of an integrated game theory‑optimization subground stratifcation model using cone penetration test (CPT) measurements
The continuous cone penetration test (CPT) measurements provide an advantageous liable rapid tool for stratifcation and soil behavior classifcation that can be employed in the sustainable design of the infrastructures. ...
Implementing Lean Construction : A Literature Study of Barriers, Enablers, and Implications
The challenges of adopting and implementing lean construction (LC) have led to substantial but isolated research studies concerning the relevant barriers, enablers, and implications, which lack a comprehensive approach and ...
Deterministic and Probabilistic Risk Management Approaches in Construction Projects : A Systematic Literature Review and Comparative Analysis
Risks and uncertainties are inevitable in construction projects and can drastically change the expected outcome, negatively impacting the project’s success. However, risk management (RM) is still conducted in a manual, ...
Using GPS Probe Speed Data to Estimate the Attribution of Speeding on Casualty Crashes : A Case Study in Queensland
While the relationship between vehicle speed and crash risk and severity are well understood, precise quantification of the attribution of speeding to casualty crashes remains elusive, due in part to the lack of reliable ...
A Review of Non-Residential Building Renovation and Improvement of Energy Efficiency : Office Buildings in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Germany
Existing buildings are a source of great potential for energy efficiency through renovation. In this study, the national energy requirements equivalent for the major renovation of existing non-residential buildings using ...
Rehabilitation of aging urban water systems : Strategic thinking required
This paper highlights the fundamental and invaluable role of water services in human settlements and community development. The paper aims at revealing the reasons behind aging infrastructure, the major challenge of the ...
