An efficient highway infrastructure network is a determining factor in promoting the socio-economic development of countries and regions. Highway planning activities are highly important because their results ensure that projects are delivered within budget, schedule, and scope. Therefore, academics and professionals have promoted various methodolo...
Conference Paper
Construction projects, both in developed and developing countries, are widely affected by cost deviations that arise at the completion of the construction process; these deviations manifest themselves as a difference between the executed cost and the planned cost. To mitigate cost deviation, the first step is to identify the causes that originate t...
Article
Traffic analysis at road intersections is an important activity in the project design and planning phases because it allows selecting the most suitable traffic requirements and site characteristics. Therefore, traffic simulation models are indispensable and useful tools to support collaborative decision-making. The building information modeling (BI...
