A study on material properties of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) and its complementary wall elements : their compatibility in comtemporary and historical wall sections
Andolsun, Simge; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2006)
Examined in this study were some physical, mechanical, compositional and durability properties of AAC, its neighboring plasters and jointing adhesive, all of which were produced in Turkey. The compatibility of these materials inside the contemporary wall section and within historic fabric was discussed in terms of their material properties. In addition to the literature survey, laboratory studies were conducted on two types of AAC as G2 and G4, its jointing adhesive and exterior finishing layers as base coa...
An investigation on compatibility properties of exterior finish coats for insulated walls in terms of water vapour pemeability and modulus ofelasticity
Örs, Kerime; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2006)
The compatibility properties of some contemporary finish coats together with their complementary layers used in insulated exterior walls were examined in terms of water vapour permeability and modulus of elasticity. Basic physical and mechanical properties of some synthetic-, cement- and polymer-based external finish coats were analyzed in laboratory. Some additional samples, complementing the wall section, were also examined for their water vapour permeability. Results showed that the finish coats were hig...
A Mixed integer programming method for integrated discrete time-cost trade-off and manpower resource leveling problem
Tatar, Ali Can; Sönmez, Rifat; Atan, S. Tankut; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
Construction projects have to meet all of the objectives of scope, quality, schedule, budget simultaneously. These objectives, however, cannot be considered as independent of each other. For example, an increase in direct resources will usually lead to shorter activity durations. A shorter project duration results in lower indirect costs, whereas the additional resources cause an increase the project’s direct costs, in general. This phenomenon is defined as time-cost trade-off problem (TCTP). Nevertheless, ...
A Mixed linear integer model for military facility layout optimization problem
Ece, Hüseyin Bahadır; Sönmez, Rifat; Atan, S. Tankut; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
The positioning and layout of facilities on a construction site has a significant impact on productivity, costs, and duration of construction projects. The main objective of general construction site layout planning problem is to arrange the temporary facilities such as office buildings, residences, and warehouse in such a way that the construction activities can be performed with minimal costs. The military facility layout planning problem which considers layout of military facilities is similar to the con...
A knowledge-based risk mapping tool for cost estimation of international construction projects
Yildiz, Acelya Ecem; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Ercoskun, Kerem; Alten, Selcuk (Elsevier BV, 2014-07-01)
Effective risk assessment and management is critical for success in international construction projects. This paper proposes a knowledge-based risk mapping tool for systematically assessing risk-related variables that may lead to cost overrun in international markets. The tool uses an ontology that relates risk and vulnerability to cost overrun [1] and a novel risk-vulnerability assessment methodology [2] to estimate potential risk paths that may emerge in international construction projects. The tool has b...
