This work enunciates the effect of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTs) as an addition to concrete subjected to normal environment and adverse environment. The MWCNTs are dispersed in water in the range of 0 to 0.25 % by weight of cement. The dispersed MWCNTs are added in concrete during its manufacturing process, and get cured for 28 days. Then...
Chapter
An extensive application of project network analysis in construction project management has been observed in the last few decades. The scheduling of construction projects is generally carried out using the conventional project scheduling methodologies such as Critical Path Method (CPM), Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM), Programme Evaluation and...

The structural integrity of composite structural elements is very significant. This corroborates for RCC modular reinforced concrete structural systems as well. In this research, a detailed 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of commonly built RCC modular concrete system is perceived. The FEA of RCC modular concrete structure is carried out using an i...
Article
This research lays out the foundation of constructability analysis of Cast in-situ, Precast and Modular RCC Structures using Building Information Modeling (BIM). This research documents three different construction techniques, which are vital components in this modern construction industry. The theory is to predict the usability of the features dur...
Article
Full-text available
This research seeks to develop a comprehensive framework for the design of Half-Tunnel Concrete Formwork System (HTCFS). HTCFS are highly efficient systems that are used for the construction of modular RCC structural systems. Additionally, HTCFS are significant in terms of higher reuse in constructing modular units. Despite these advantages, the ac...
Article
The prime objective of this research is to develop a comprehensive framework for the static analysis of crane-dependent climbing formwork system. In this research, one of the climbing formwork systems that are commonly used for the construction of high-rise buildings known as crane-dependent is contemplated. Initially, suitable design intends of th...
Article
Full-text available
Most of the multi-storey buildings are analysed based on an assumption that the structure is subjected to whole load after modelling the entire structure. But in reality, each storey is subjected to some assumed loads to act during construction period itself as they are constructed in stages as storey wise. Sequential analysis in a structure is ign...
Article
The quality of concrete construction mainly depends on the factors like concrete constituents, degree of supervision, method of curing, etc. Hitherto, one of the most influencing factors is the mix design or proportioning that contributes major parts directly to the quality of finished product. Unlike conventional concrete the mix proportion of Sel...
Article
Full-text available
The main objective of this research is to develop an automated constructability rating framework for different concrete formwork systems that are commonly used for the construction of reinforced concrete residential buildings. Initially, various constructability criteria (cost, time, quality, safety and environmental sustainability) that are analog...

In an educational perspective, unlike other disciplines, hands­-on practice is difficult to come by in Civil Engineering. By providing a student with a realistic 3D simulation, we propose a concept that improves the understanding of the individual and eliminate guess­-work entirely. Our platform that makes education fun and interactive by eliminati...
Conference Paper

Article
Self-Compacting Concrete does not require any kind of external vibration for its placing and compaction. It possesses the ability to flow under its own weight and to fill the formwork completely which will result in full compaction even in the case of congested reinforcement. The pore structure of the self-compacting concrete is different that of t...
Conference Paper
It is well known that the post­tensioning technique is ruling the bridge industry for so many decades. Although considerable research works have been carried out by various researchers, still there are issues, which need to be addressed for understanding the ultimate flexural behavior of post­tensioned concrete members with in­depth knowledge. They...
Conference Paper
- Self Compacting Concrete is a special type of concrete which has the inherent characteristics to initiate high workability, reduced water content and more importantly its ability to pass through or consolidating even in the congested reinforcement nature. These properties of SCC are achieved only by the proper mix proportioning of its constituent...
Conference Paper
Waste printed circuit boards comprises of valuable resources along with plenty of hazardous materials, which are considered both as well as an attractive secondary resource and an environmental contaminant. Use of these materials not only helps in getting them utilized in concrete and it helps in reducing the cost of concrete manufacturing along wi...
Article
Full-text available
This paper discusses the integrated whole-building process of achieving the most economic and energy efficient design of a common residential building through the sustainable design. This involves positioning and orientation of the building with respect to the annual sun path, adjusting the percentage of openings in the building, usage of the low e...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
More than 40% of the Indian construction projects are facing time overrun ranging from 1 to 252 months, the reasons for which are being studied to suggest possible remedial measures. In order to keep the projects within the time schedule and budget, various urbane project management techniques are adopted in most of the construction firms in India....
Chapter

This chapter focuses primarily on Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT), one of the intriguing techniques used for network-based management. It is a stochastic network technique and has many advantages over the conventional Critical Path Method (CPM) and Programme Evaluation and Review Techniques used for project management. The formulat...

Vertical development is the ideal solution to meet the demand of land for the fast growing urban population in India. It is the construction of tall structures such as high-rise buildings, sky scrapers and sky towers etc., rather than constructing laterally to accommodate large population in quiet a lesser area. However the construction of high-ris...

The drafting of formwork systems for concrete structures is one of the most complex tasks in the formwork construction than the design and selection of the formwork systems. The 2D Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) is the most commonly used tool for drafting, however custom made programs such as ELPOS, ForCAD and Tipos 7.0 was used later as...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current methods and techniques for running energy simulation of buildings are time consuming, difficult to perform and lack high interoperability between the theoretical and the actual energy data. Thus an intriguing technique known as Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be used as an alternative. The BIM is the parametric change concept al...
Conference Paper
Conservation of natural resources, reduction of environmental pollution and utilization of waste resources are among the basic consideration for sustainable development. In case of semi rigid pavement construction these are fulfilled by choice of proper binders systems and aggregates. Particular attention is drawn for mix design method which is a c...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The major factors which affect the success of the construction projects are the cost over-run and time over-run. These factors arose mainly due to the improper coordination among the construction personnel besides the inefficient project management methodologies and inadequate project planning. Thus, an intriguing project management technique known...
