Abstract

Objective of highway agencies is to develop rational and defensible specifications for the acceptance of highway materials and transportation structures. Such specifications are often coupled with a pay schedule that rewards higher and penalizes lower quality levels. This study had as objective the development of a methodology examining the production population characteristics and assessing the effectiveness of pay schedules to award appropriate levels of monetary rewards for desired target quality levels. The proposed approach uses the distribution of production quality to generate alternative lots through Monte Carlo simulation and examine the impact on pay factors (PF). Then, the probability of receiving a certain level of PF is estimated for assessing the rationality of the pay schedule in relation to the achieved quality..............

Abstract

This paper presents the design optimization, sensitivity analysis and optimal system types of the hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) for health care clinic building. Sensitivity variables are evaluated on these parameters to verify how variances in this load would change standalone wind/PV/diesel/battery hybrid system costs and optimal system configurations, and also was found to have very huge significant impact on OST configurations, although slightly less fuel was consumed on a yearly basis. The result eventually shows that benchmark system has almost 75% times higher COE where the COE came out of all sensitivity value. Important proof exists in increase of the COE by sensitivity analyses in diesel price. Final conclusion from this section is that COE has significant decrease by sensitivity analyses..

Abstract

High-Rise Buildings are one of the major aspects of modern urban society. In the modern urban land use where there is a continuous pressure of population and human activities, the demand for vertical expansion or multiple utilization of land has become necessary. High-Rise Buildings can fully utilize the potentiality of land. On one hand, they are very useful in terms of multiple uses of land and on the other hand it plays a significant role in the changing facets of urban people. In the wave of globalization at present, these modern aspects are coming into small cities and playing a significant role in the daily life of the urban dwellers. The specific objectives of the study are to examine the distribution of High-Rise Buildings in the study area, the impact of High-Rise Buildings over.......
