Chapter
COVID-19 has changed the world overnight and the question arises as to how much the course of the construction industry has changed since this industry largely depends on the dynamics of work, teamwork, but also the daily meetings of different teams. The objectives of this study are to learn about the impact of the pandemic on the construction indu...
Chapter
Virtual Reality has been acquired in certain fields where the interaction is important such as the Architectural-Engineering-Construction field. This paper aimed to investigate the impact of using Virtual reality in Designing Process on improving the communication between Designers and Users. Using Qualitative research methodology, the findings agr...
Chapter
This paper focused on determining the effect of the design phase on the construction project success and to investigate the awareness of construction project participants about the values and benefits gained by using green materials and buildings. Results gained by using qualitative research method demonstrated that the design has a significant imp...
Chapter
This paper aimed to explore factors that may have significant impact on the decision-making process for engineering at construction site, to analyze the existing decision-making methods for the construction industry worldwide, to gather the factors affecting the decision-making process at construction site, and to list these factors according to th...
Chapter
The success of any construction project is measured by covering the scope and quality and finishing on time and budget. Many factors affect the delays in construction projects and this topic is the subject of many researches worldwide. Generally, factors can be sorted into those that we can predict and avoid them happening, and others which we cann...
Chapter
Motivation of engineers in the construction industry is the subject of many researches, due to the effect of lack of motivation on the work delays, and the tendency to not remain in one company longer than few years. This paper investigates what motivation factors are significant for engineers in construction Industry in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Qua...
Chapter
Biofilms are microbial mono-specie or multi-specie (consortium) communities that play a significant role in the clinical, industrial and natural settings. Biofilm formation can be determined by using qualitative and quantitative tests, where the latter are considered more reliable. The prominently accepted result interpretation procedure for quanti...
Article
Various studies of a number of human diseases in the past few decades have made the role of chromosome analysis widely recognizable in the detection of anomalies, as rising chromosomal changes are not unusual. Chromosomal aberrations have been detected in conceptions, early spontaneous abortions, and mental disorders and many forms of cancer. Due t...
Poster
Most of the construction materials utilized in common construction have small or no recyclability potential. The construction industry has a larger portion of wasted by product than many other industries due to a loose regulatory environment when compared to the transportation, energy and agriculture industries. Overall it is known that environment...
Book
The search about the motivation systems and methods started earlier in the 19th century, as they tried to connect motivation and productivity. Engineers in construction industry in B&H and surrounding region suffers from the lack of motivation, which generally cause late in project submission, conflicts in work, and depression, as well as tending n...

Porozni asfalt je predstavljen kao novi savremeni materijal davnih 1970. Tamo gdje su velike padavine, i gdje su temperature iznad 0, pokazalo se kao dobro rješenje za propuštanje kiše kratkog trajanja i velikog intenziteta kroz trupe ceste, do kolektora oborinske vode. Dosadašnja istraživanja su dokazala da upotreba poroznog asflata povećava se si...

Materials carried by a flow, such as bed load, in a suspension form, and settled at the bottom by lowering the fluid velocity and the carrying power of the flow is called sediment. Any material that could be carried by the mention process are called Sedimental loads. The process of transporting sediments in the rivers or streams is called Sediment...
Article
The site engineer is the one that has to make crucial decisions that can help the project or harm it. This paper aims to connect and find the relation between behavioral characteristics of site engineer and the process of decision making. By reviewing the literature related to the process of decision making and behavioral characteristics, a model i...

For countries and regions enriched with water surfaces such as rivers and lakes, the cheapest source of power is water. Hydro power is called also “pure power” as it has minor pollution effects on the environment and health if compared with other types of power sources. Surge tanks have important role in the functionality of HE plant as they balanc...
