Article
Sustainability issues are of growing concern in the world, as the effects of human activities on the planet become more visible. The environmental impact of dredging activities has been a point of discussion for a long period. Over recent years more emphasis is put on sustainability by different stakeholders in answer to the climate change effects...

Energy consumption of a single story rammed earth low cost house has analysed in this paper. The building has designed using rammed earth in the exterior surface for architectural purpose and thermal comfort in summer season. The climate at Purbachal, Dhaka can be characterized as hot and dry, so the challenge of providing comfortable living with m...

: The Construction sector is the largest global consumer of materials, and buildings are the sector with the largest single energy use worldwide. Consequently, buildings are also responsible for 19% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The buildings accounts for 39% of CO2 emissions in the United States per year, which is more than any other s...

Thermal comfort and energy consumption of a single storied house has analyzed in this paper. The building has designed using rammed earth in the exterior surface for architectural purpose and thermal comfort in summer season. The climate of Dhaka can be characterized as tropical wet and dry, so the challenge of providing comfortable living with min...

Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is one of Asia's fastest growing cities, with a population currently around 20 million. Safe water supply is a major challenge from the very beginning of the city. Much of Dhaka's water problem centers on its over-dependence on ground water, and water specialists say the city needs to increase its usage of surface...

The commercial and residential building accounts for 39% of CO2 emissions in the United States per year, which is more than any other sector. Most of these emissions come from the combustion of fossil fuels to provide heating, cooling and lighting, and to power appliances and electrical equipment. By transforming the built environment to be more en...

Global warming is caused by the emission of greenhouse gases. 72% of the totally emitted greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide (CO2), 18% Methane and 9% Nitrous oxide. Carbon dioxide emissions therefore are the most important cause of global warming. CO2 is inevitably created by burning fuels like e.g. oil, natural gas, diesel, organic-diesel, petrol...

EnergyPlus energy simulation program was used to determine the effects of rooftop garden on the annual energy consumption, heating, cooling load and roof thermal transfer value of a four-story ready-made garments factory industrial building in Bangladesh. The thermal resistances (R-values) of shrubs, turfing and trees were estimated using data from...

Masonry infill panels are often used as interior partitions and exterior walls in buildings. They are usually treated as non-structural elements, and their interaction with the bounding frame is often ignored in design. A three story reinforced concrete frame structure consists of RC frames, RC floor slabs and URM infill walls is analyzed for stron...

Retrofit measures are important considering recent events of devastating building failures, especially in the ready-made garments sector in Bangladesh. This paper will be assessing retrofit measures on existing structures with respect to realistic case studies. According to different codes and engineering practices retrofit measures may vary consid...

Performance-based design using nonlinear pushover analysis, which generally involves tedious and intensive computational effort, is an elastic design methodology done on the probable performance of the building under input ground motions. In this Study, a ten story commercial building is designed using ETABS and the performance based seismic design...
Thesis
The primary objective of this dissertation is to study the coefficient of permeability, void ratio of fine and course sand mixture. The research program commenced with a literature review on the coefficient of permeability and void ratio. Void ratio and permeability of soil bear a great importance in designing superstructures. It has a great impact...
