Analytical and Conceptual Perspectives toward Behavioral Elements of Collaborative Delivery Models in Construction Projects
Collaborative models and working practices have considerably contributed to the evolution of construction project delivery in the last four decades. The promising performance results of construction projects with collaborative ...
CIB W040: International surveys considering moisture safety in buildings during design and construction
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2021-12-02)
We conducted comparative surveys of design consultants in three countries to determine current knowledge and experienced moisture problems. The study is part of the CIB W040 research roadmap needs analyses for realigning ...
Advancing Railway Asset Management Using Track Geometry Deterioration Modeling Visualization
Railway tracks need to be monitored to ensure safe operations and cost-effective maintenance. The monitoring is commonly conducted using a track recording car that describes deviations from an ideal track geometry. Over ...
Service Life of Concrete Pedestal without Air Entrainment
Service life of nine wind power unit pedestals, which concrete grades between C45 and C55, were studied with four different service life models. The exact service life could be calculated only with two of them with the ...
Decreasing Carbon Footprint of Block of Flats - Concrete Technology Possibilities
Construction business along with other businesses have set carbon neutrality goals in the following years. To reach these goals a lot needs to be done fairly quickly. The high impact of concrete production on carbon emissions ...
Estimating maximum shear modulus (G0) using adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS)
Realistic estimation of soil behavior is dependent on considering very small and small strain domains. Lengthy formulas proposed in the literature have limited predictive power for estimation of maximum shear modulus, G0. ...
Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls Using Nonlinear Layered Shell Approach
This study discusses nonlinear modelling of a reinforced concrete wall utilizing the nonlinear layered shell approach. Rebar, unconfined and confined concrete behaviours are defined nonlinearly using proposed analytical ...
Use of Beta Regression to investigate the link between home air infiltration rate and self-reported health
The UK has introduced ambitious legislation for reaching net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Improving the energy efficiency of homes is a key priority in achieving this target and solutions include minimising ...
Improving indoor thermal comfort, air quality and the health of older adults through environmental policies in London
In this work we evaluate the potential of selected environmental strategies in reducing air pollution and summertime indoor overheating. Associated changes in mortality rates are also calculated for older adults in London. ...
