The objective of this study is to evaluate surface characteristics of commercially manufactured particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF) panels in Thailand. The surface roughness of both type of panels were measured using a fine stylus technique. Average roughness ( R a ), mean...
In this paper, a mathematical model was developed to determine the standards of a unit park area per person in a neighbourhood park based on social–cultural and economic conditions of a town or a city in a country. This way, a different dimension was given by the issue of looking at the unit...
This paper presents the results of a larger study on application of acrylic plasters as external coatings in the passive heating systems. The efficiency of the heating system strongly depends on the physical and optical properties of the used materials, especially those used for the finishing...
Atmospheric corrosion of building materials is an enormously complex and interdisciplinary process. It affects not only the ability of building to perform over the prolonged period of time but also the overall energy consumption. The presented paper is a part of a larger study on application of...
This study forms part of an in-depth investigation of the critical issue of earth-contact heat transfer to and from buildings. The overall research project involved in situ measurements, extensive simulation work and design guide calculations of heat loss through the ground from different real...
The design of a building should cover necessary investigations to provide comfort conditions, in terms of physical properties such as light, sound and heat. The acoustical comfort conditions in an architectural space significantly depend on the sound insulation performance of the building...
More than half of the population of Turkey is women. However, although there is an increase in the number of population, they have still been under-represented in the labour force. The conceptual and empirical elements related to the understanding of women's labour in societies like Turkey that...
Building-related health complaints and symptoms represent a significant occupational health problem. Elevated concentrations of various types of indoor pollutants, frequently associated with inadequate ventilation, have been implicated as a potential cause. The objective of this research is to...
This paper applies the back-propagation network (BPN) model incorporating genetic algorithms (GAs) to cost estimation. GAs were adopted in the BPN to determine the BPN's parameters and to improve the accuracy of construction cost estimation. Previously, there have been no appropriate rules to...
