This draft paper describes the preliminary outcomes of a model-based investigation of longterm strategies to reduce the impacts of coastal flooding in Bangladesh. Specifically, a system dynamics model was constructed to simulate the effect of flood mitigation methods on the population, rural economy, housing and welfare of Bangladeshis in the...

This paper explores the concept of adding value to corporate performance by real estate, and how this concept could be applied in decision-making processes for new hospital infrastructure. A literature review forms the starting point for interviews carried out with hospitals‘ CEOs on how real estate added value is perceived and used in design...

the function-behavior representation language FBRL was originally devised for modeling and knowledge management of intended product behavior. This paper explores its potential for application to other-than-intended behavior in a use context, introducing consideration of the user and the environment. We found that slightly adapted building blocks...

In positioning the design school versus the business school, the management game as an educational module in the last semester of the architectural bachelor in Delft is illustrative for the possible synthesis between real estate and architecture. The explicit approach of design, as applied in Delft and many other institutes for architecture, and...

At airports, the turnaround process of aircraft is crucial for a timely and efficient handling of air traffic. During this process, a number of services need to be provided during the time the aircraft is at the gate: e.g., de-boarding, cleaning, catering, fuelling, and boarding. These services are provided by different service providers (agents...

Design formulas for bed protections in the port of Rotterdam were investigated. Using depthsoundings, the actual level of stability of a quay wall can be compared with the design formulas. The loads on a bottom protection differ, because of diversity in shipping and tidal motion. Therefore a better comparison can be made by resembling the...

Gross Floor Area (GFA) concession scheme, as a planning incentive, is developed from the notion of “make developers pay” in UK in 1990. It rewards developers additional GFA in exchange for public amenities so that government could save that amount of money. This paper carries out a review of GFA concession scheme in Hong Kong and Singapore to...

The focus of the paper is on the performance of an approximate 'zonal' near- wall treatment applied within a LES strategy to the simulation of flow separating from a three-dimensional hill at high Reynolds numbers. In the zonal scheme, the state of the near-wall layer of the flow is described by parabolized Navier-Stokes equations solved on a...

This study aims to investigate the relation between evolving graphic representations and due to new digital tools and how they affect architects’ approach to design process. In order to do this, Yap_ Magazine being published since 1973 in Turkey will be retrieved and data related to types of architectural design representation used will be...

In this paper, an integrated computational procedure for simulation of two-phase flow as well as floating and submerged body motions is presented based on a Volume of Fluid (VoF) - fractional step coupling. Two fluids are modeled as a single continuum with a fluid property jump at the interface by solving a scalar transport equation for volume...

The complexity inherent in construction project environments can lead to emergence of informality and vice versa. This paper suggests that studying informalities in projects could lead to identifying paradoxes. Informalities in construction could be conceptualised through an economic or social perspective. Informalities may be explicit and...

A novel approach to the evaluation of time resolved particle-based tomographic data is introduced. By seizing the time information contained in such datasets, a very fast and accurate tracking of nearly all particles within the measurement domain is achieved at seeding densities comparable to (and probably above) the thresholds for tomographic...

The present work quantified the laboratory geotechnical variability by repeatability direct shear test (DS) on alluvial fine-grained soils. The effect of laboratory variability of geotechnical parameters (cohesion c' and friction angle ϕ′) on slope stability was investigated. A mixture of compacted fine sand (40%) and clayey silt (60%) taken...

Geophysical methods are able to contribute significantly to geotechnical site characterization. In-situ parameters are collected and gaps between boreholes or other direct tests are filled with information. However the limited resolution has to be considered and the indirect geophysical parameters have to be translated into something...

Research in the field of smart materials that exhibit self-repair mechanisms has greatly expanded over the last few years. This is especially true for polymers and polymer composite materials. One class of self-healing polymer materials is the reversible polymer network systems that use dynamic covalent bonds as a means to repair sustained...

Shallow slope failures are one of the most frequent geological hazards in mountainous areas, which pose great danger to people and properties in affected areas. This paper presents a cell-based platform for quantitative risk assessment for shallow slope failures at a regional scale. There are five components in this platform; namely, a digital...
