A risk management course offers a systematic solution to train engineering student’s critical and creative thinking in identifying, assessing and controlling project risks to minimize the impact on both project and organization. Most of the past literature focused on the importance of risk management implementation in the construction industry, but little attention has been given to the integration of risk management course in engineering education towards students’ career readiness and advancem...

Concreting operations commonly utilize a large range of equipment that generates a considerable amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Equipment idle time is considered as a non-productive time that it increases the fuel use and emissions without any production. Reducing idle time in operation implies the opportunity to improve productivity, cost efficiency, and emissions reduction. Continuous efforts have been made to determine the efficient solutions in reducing emissions of construction op...

Design thinking (DT) is a robust framework to creatively identify and solve various human problems. It offers a systematic solution to train engineering students in critical and creative thinking to solve complex engineering problems. The DT method is integrated with the Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) approach with the objective of developing problem-solving skillset amongst engineering students. This paper presents the implementation of CDIO-DT towards achieving the program outcome re...

ABSTRACTThe reduction of emissions within construction is seen as an agreed direction worldwide. In this light, the paper examines unit emissions in concreting operations, and provides guidelines for their reduction. Unit emissions and unit costs are calculated through a queuing model for concreting operations where trucks cycle between a batching plant and site. A time-production constraint exists. Sensitivity-style analyses are used to evaluate the influence of truck capacity, unloading policy...

Abstract The construction industry is a large contributor to global emissions, though it is becoming more aligned with sustainability practices. Historically, the industry has focused on cost, production and time, but now adds emissions to this list. Industry attitudes to emissions have been the subject of a number of surveys, but these necessarily only give qualitative information. This paper takes a quite different tack and establishes, for the first time, quantitative measures of industry att...

Purpose The performance of earthmoving operations, in terms of emissions, production and cost, is dependent on many variables and has been the study of a number of publications. Such publications look at typical operation design and management, without establishing what the penalties or bonuses might be for non-standard, but still observed, practices. To fill this gap in knowledge, this paper examines alternative loading policies of zero waiting-time loading, fractional loading and double-sided ...

Heat treatment is one of the environment-friendly ways to treat timber that will lead to the improvement of timber natural quality and equip the timber with new properties by modifying the timber. It is an eco-friendly and alternative treatment method that will modify the properties of timber by using high temperature instead of using chemical preservatives. This paper presents the overview of heat treatment effects on physical, chemical and mechanical properties in the case of heat treated timb...

This paper reports the investigation made on the suitability and the optimum ratio of quarry dust in replacing river sand for brick production. A series of mix proportions for different ratio of cement:sand:quarry dust were prepared. Five types of mix proportions were practiced in the production of brick specimens were 1:10:0, 1:7.5:2.5, 1:5:5, 1:2.5:7.5 and 1:0:10 (Cement:Sand:Quarry Dust) and denoted as B1, B2, B3, B4 and B5 respectively. The curing method applied in this study was air dry as ...
