The demolition activities produce a huge amount of waste that have negative effects on the environment. In the current demolition practices, most of the waste are recycled or landfilled. Only a small percentage is retrieved and reused again. Reuse is preferred than recycling since it better for the environment. To increase the reuse, more...

The infrastructure gap is defined as the gap between investment requirements of infrastructure and the public funds available. Due to these gaps, not enough new infrastructure is developed and this puts a constraint on economic growth. This study looks at the impact that pension funds can have on closing this infrastructure gap, and thereby aid...

An increase in air traffic demand, aging pavement infrastructure, and limited funds make pavement management decision making a difficult process. Pavement management systems (PMS) are essential for pavement management. PAVER, the most common airport pavement management system (APMS) assists pavement managers by identifying the surface condition...
