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 ...

Recent globalization era has great consequences to the construction industry worldwide and it is frequently transforms into creation of new emerging markets. Going international is commonly understood as a strategic process of market entry decision through which a firm moves from operating purely in its domestic market into the international market. Focusing on the entry timing is one of the important dimensions in the process of internationalization of Malaysian construction firms. It involves ...
