    Abstract : Improving productivity in construction has been a lengthy battle. Several debates, articles, reports and books have acknowledged that productivity in construction must be improved. Numerous theoretical and practical solutions to improve productivity have been developed over time both in academia and in practise. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reinforcement in Tailor-made Concrete Structures

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : David Fall; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadsteknik; Building engineering; Byggproduktionsteknik; Building manufacturing engineering; Övrig samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Other civil engineering and architecture; Konstruktionsteknik; Construction engineering; Tailor-made concrete structures; Geometrically complex structures; Reinforcement alternatives; Steel fibre reinforcement; Automated production;

    Abstract : In tailor-made concrete structures of complex geometries, the formability of concrete is an asset. To use this formability in load-bearing structures, the concrete needs to be reinforced. During the past century steel bars were used; however, in recent decades, alternative reinforcement methods have been introduced. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical Simulations of Flows around Trains and Buses in Cross Winds

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Hassan Hemida; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Övrig samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Other civil engineering and architecture; Farkostteknik; Vehicle engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik; Mechanical energy engineering; Strömningsmekanik; Fluid mechanics; winds; LES; DES; Trains and buses aerodynamics;

    Abstract : When cruising in strong winds, ground vehicles can experience strong aerodynamic forces and moments that may increase drag, reduce their stability, generate noise and induce accidents in the case of strong side winds. However, prevention of the unwanted influences of side winds requires that the flow structures around vehicles are fully understood in both the instantaneous and time-averaged flow. READ MORE
