Intelligent Construction Planning
The intelligent construction planning is a stage of automated building realization process. The building is defined in the design stage by its spaces and functional systems. The automated...

Alternative Decisions for Space-Based Scheduling in Multi-Story Projects
SCaRC (Space-Based and Resource-Based) is a prototype knowledge-based scheduling system that acknowledges work space as a scheduling constraint. The SCaRC system comprises different scheduling...

Time-Space Tradeoff Strategies for Space-Schedule Construction
Space availability on a construction site can have a major impact on the efficiency and constructability of a project. Especially when space is limited, tradeoffs between activity sequencing,...

Development of a Visual Method to Track the Movement of Hydrogen Bubbles in a Laboratory Flume
The current study proposes a visual method for tracking the hydrogen bubbles position with time in a 2-D space. The experiment is filmed from above with a video camera. The obtained movie...

Malaysia's Twins: High-Rise, High Strength
U.S. firms, following the market for new skyscrapers to Asia, are involved in design and construction of twin office towers in the commercial heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that will...

Effects of Hurricanes Andrew and Iniki on Lifelines

An Overview of the Federal Response to Hurricane Iniki

The Variability of Large Alluvial Rivers
Written by river engineers and earth scientists who are experts in river morphology, dynamics, and control, The Variability of Large Alluvial Rivers...

Space-Frame Pyramid
The world's largest space frame pyramid, completed at California State University in Long Beach in late 1994, proved to be a lighter weight and more economical alternative...

Alternative Habitat Concepts for the First Lunar Outpost
The First Lunar Outpost (FLO) Study was a NASA-wide effort to define systems for a near-term, low cost return to the Moon. The FLO habitat must support four crew on the lunar surface for...

Improving Development Characteristics of Reinforcing Bars
Prepared by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation. Sponsored by CERF, This report describes the development and implications of a new concrete...

Bridge to the Future
The experimental Roize Bridge, near Grenoble, France, features an innovative composite space truss and unique modular construction methods for efficiency and economy. The Roize Bridge...

A Decision Support System for the Operation of Joint-Use Parking
A prototype decision support system (DSS) developed for streamlining the operation of a joint-use parking program is discussed. The DSS involves a combined usage of geographic information...

ASTM C666 (A) Freeze-Thaw Durability of Air-Entrained Wet- and Dry-Mix Shotcrete
In order to assess the freeze-thaw durability of shotcrete, six samples of dry-mix shotcrete and one sample of wet-mix shotcrete were mixed outdoors at Hydro-Quebec's research institute...

Aperture Characteristics, Saturated Fluid-Flow, and Tracer-Transport Calculations for a Natural Fracture
We used surface-profile data taken with a noncontact laser profilometer to determine the aperture distribution within a natural fracture and found the surfaces and apertures to be isotropic....

A Model to Quantify Work Space Availability for Space—Contrained Scheduling Within a CAD Environment
In any given process work area, a task or activity requires a specific amount of space for its execution. This required space must be accommodate by the physical space of the work area...

Exchanging Layout and Schedule Data in a Real-Time Distributed Environment
Unpredictable site conditions and unforeseen changes in construction work may result in inefficiencies due to a shortage of work space and difficult access to critical areas on site. This...

Nonlinear Earthquake Response Analysis with Partial Uplift of a Building on a 3D Layered Half-Space Using Dynamic Stiffness in Frequency Domain
Buildings...

Vitalization Policy of Local Region by Port Space Utilization
The present paper investigates policies of decayed local regions by port space utilization in Japan and proposes a new frame to manage risks in order to lead them to success. It contains...

Travel Time Data Fusion in Advance
The ADVANCE project in the Chicago metropolitan area is one of several ATIS operational tests currently underway in the USA and abroad. Fusion of equipped vehicle (probes) travel time...
