Construction project control through wireless networking

Köseoğlu, Oğuzhan Ozan
In this thesis, the latest developments in mobile telecommunications and mobile devices are investigated in order to integrate wireless connectivity and mobile computing in construction industry core business processes on site. The research includes current technologies and implementation in the construction industry and other industries. Wireless solutions are presented in order to improve information flow, quality of data, control and coordinate business processes in construction companies. The Marmaray project in Turkey is used as a project case study to present the necessary investment and benefits gained by the contractors. This study investigates and seeks to eliminate the barriers on the way to integrate mobile technologies in the construction industry business processes.


Seamless Key Agreement Framework for Mobile-Sink in IoT Based Cloud-Centric Secured Public Safety Sensor Networks
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Ever, Yoney Kirsal; Ever, Enver; Nguyen, Huan X.; David, Deebak Bakkiam (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-01-01)
Recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a significant advancement for Internet and mobile networks with various public safety network applications. An important use of IoT-based solutions is its application in post-disaster management, where the traditional telecommunication systems may be either completely or partially damaged. Since enabling technologies have restricted authentication privileges for mobile users, in this paper, a strategy of mobile-sink is introduced for the extension of use...
Legal aspects of ICT implementation in Turkish construction industry: applicability of eLEGAL framework
Çiftçi, Çağlar; Nielsen, Yasemin; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
With increasing awareness of gains and importance of the strategic use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), the implementation rate of ICTs in construction sector is increasing. However, these technologies have not been covered by legal and contractual practices. The industry needs to implement application frameworks and legal re-structuring of the existing related laws and regulations to use ICT in a legal and contractually valid environment. In this thesis, an EU funded project, eLEGAL; wh...

Recent Improvements in document image systems and their low-cost implementation on networks of microcomputers is leading to the reengineering of many information systems. We describe how document image systems can be applied to information systems. In order to compare the performance of a conventional information system with one implemented with document imaging processing capability we conducted a discrete event simulation. We modeled the conventional information system for processing graduate student ...
Investigation of Au-Ag-Cu Alloy Electrodeposition to Electromechanical Systems
Cagan, Berkay; ERDOĞAN, METEHAN; Karakaya, İshak; Yilmaz, Cemil; Yurdakul, Burak (2020-04-01)
© 2020 ECS - The Electrochemical Society.Electromechanical systems, which provide electrical power and data connection between moving terminals require high conduction and erosion resistant surfaces. Transfers of electrical power and data are accomplished by the contact of drum and brush wires. The simultaneous electrochemical deposition of desired Au-Ag-Cu alloy compositions, which can be used to coat the brush wires, was investigated in this study. In the scope of the study, the static potential and cycli...
Operation assignment and capacity allocation problem in automated manufacturing systems
Bilgin, Selin; Azizoğlu, Meral (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-01)
We address an operation assignment and capacity allocation problem that arises in semiconductor industries and flexible manufacturing systems. We assume the automated machines have scarce time and tool magazine capacities and the tools are available in limited quantities. The aim is to select a subset of operations with maximum total weight. We show that the problem is NP-hard in the strong sense, develop two heuristics and a Tabu Search procedure. The results of our computational tests have revealed that o...
