Delta systems, characterized by their dynamic nature and high population densities, are crucial for food and water security. However, they face significant challenges as they are on the forefront of climate change impacts, including sea level rise, river and coastal flooding, and coastal erosion. Among them is the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, where...

Concrete made with Portland cement has good behaviour under compressive stress, but it is weak in tension. Cracking caused by tension is a typical problem in concrete practice. High autogenous shrinkage at early ages is one of the causes of cracking, especially in high/ultra-high performance concrete. In that stage shrinkage is strongly related...

Climate Change continues to pose a considerable threat to the well-being of people and economies. Today, to avoid catastrophic and irreversible damage, decision-makers and policy advisers need to explore possible scenarios and enact mitigation and adaptation policies to curb the rise of global temperatures within the thresholds set by the Paris...

This research aims to explore policy venues to encourage the use of data from Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) at a national level or National CORS (NCORS). Thailand, among many countries, has established NCORS to observe and process the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals to improve the accuracy of positional data...

This article uses Sentinel-1 satellite images to identify rice fields in Rwanda from 2017 to 2021 in an attempt to derive the current status of rice in Muvumba catchment, in the northern part of Rwanda. The timing of rice cultivation in each season in that area was identified as not homogeneous, but generally aligned with the local rainy season....

Humanity faces the unprecedented global challenge of climate change. The sheer complexity and uncertainty of this problem renders mere intuitive reasoning insufficient. To aid global climate negotiations, Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) are used to analyze the interplay between climate and the economy. More specifically, IAMs account for how...

Nanoindentation is widely used to investigate the surface-mechanical properties of biocomposites. In this study, polypropylene random copolymer (PPRC) and biowaste rice husk (BRH) were used as the main raw materials, and glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene and talc were also used with BRH to enhance the mechanical characterization of the...

One-part alkali-activated slag (AAS) as a binder material has a promising application in the construction industry. The properties of one-part AAS incorporating agricultural wastes have been seldom studied. In this paper, the fresh and hardened properties of one-part AAS with the addition of rice straw powder (RSP) were investigated. The...

In this paper, fresh (setting and rheology) and hardened properties (strength and shrinkage) of one-part alkali-activated slag (AAS) with and without rice straw ash (RSA) are comprehensively investigated. The reaction kinetics and microstructure of the mixtures are characterized by a series of experimental techniques. The results reveal that...

Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) are widely used tools for estimating climate change's impacts on the socio-economic system. However, IAMs possess a limited ability to represent the impact on vulnerable populations. Influential IAMs use highly aggregated outcomes masking significant relative differences in impacts across heterogeneous...

Diverse applications of polymeric materials have prompted development of eco-friendly, efficient, and economical materials. These characteristics can be obtained by incorporating appropriate fillers in the polymeric matrix. The objective of this work is to investigate impact of aqueous glycerol (Gly) treated rice husk (RH) on surface mechanical...

Numerical analyses incorporating appropriate damage models provide an opportunity to predict the strength and deformation capacity of steel structures. This paper presents a practical calibration for the ductile damage model of S355 and high-strength steel S690Q, S700MC, S960Q based on tensile coupon test results. A combined linear and power...

Concrete production utilizes cement as its major ingredient. Cement production is an important consumer of natural resources and energy. Furthermore, the cement industry is a significant CO2 producer. To reduce the environmental impact of concrete production, supplementary cementitious materials such as fly ash, blast furnace slag, and silica...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

It is well recognized that the high risk of early age micro-crack of HPC/UHPC is attributed to the large magnitude of early age autogenous shrinkage caused by self-desiccation in binder hydration. Over the years, several methods have been proposed to mitigate autogenous shrinkage based on internal curing theory, and a better internal curing...

In the Osaka area in the 1880s, rice was grown mostly in dry fields in upland areas, and a few paddy fields were situated on the natural wet landforms along the major rivers and streams on the Osaka Plain. As the area developed, dry fields became irrigated, and the lowland fields were filled and converted to urban land uses. For the Osaka city...

Ultra High Strength Concrete (UHPC) is generally made with low w/c mixtures and by adding silica fume. Low w/c mixtures, however, exhibit high autogenous shrinkage, while a high amount of silica fume increases the price of these mixtures. For designing ultra high strength mixtures with low autogenous shrinkage and lower costs the possibility of...

Rice husk ash is an attractive pozzolan. Due to its low cost and high activity it has a promising perspective in sustainable construction. In combination with lime, its effect in soil improvement can be equal to cement treatment but its production process consumes much less energy. The main component of the rice husk ash is silica, which is the...
