This article describes an unprecedented alternative to manual procedures for the application of advanced composite materials, such as Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) and epoxy resins. A complete mobile integrated system is presented for the inspection and maintenance of concrete surfaces in...
The purpose of reliability-based design optimization (RBDO) is to find a balanced design that is not only economical but also reliable in the presence of uncertainty. Practical applications of RBDO involve discrete design variables, which are selected from commercially available lists, and...
Temporary hoist planning is a key factor for successful project completion in a high-rise building construction. Inadequate plans for hoists in the early stages of a project can cause problems such as failing to hoist resources as required or leaving hoists idle. There are two existing...
The main objectives of this paper are to evaluate the modeling effort associated with generating building information modeling (BIM) at different levels of detail (LoD) and the impact of LoD in a project in supporting mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) design coordination. Results show an...
After an eXtreme Event (XE) hits an urban area, well-organized response operations are required to mitigate the chaotic situation. Efficient allocation of resources such as construction equipment is critical to the performance of disaster response operations. This paper presents a Geographic...
Due to the complex nature of the contractor pre-qualification such as subjectivity, non-linearity and multi-criteria, advanced model should be required for achieving a high accuracy of this decision-making process. Previous studies have been conducted to build up quantitative decision models for...
This paper carries out a detailed review of previous studies that employed metaheuristics to address problems/issues encountered in the life time of a construction or engineering project. The review is organized around critical problems/issues including engineering, cost estimation, planning,...
The paper includes automated modeling and experimental verification of corrosion in reinforced concrete construction under the effect of varying oxygen concentration. Various construction corrosion cells with different concrete compositions under four different environmental conditions (air dry,...
Today's construction industry relies heavily on high-performing building information modelling (BIM) systems. By deploying the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) as a description language, these systems offer building information in a widely interoperable format, so that several applications are...
