A Hybrid Fuzzy Discrete Event Simulation Framework for Analysis of Stochastic and Subjective Uncertainties in Construction ProjectsDownload
Discrete event simulation (DES) has proven to be an indispensable tool for planning and analyzing construction projects. Appropriate consideration of uncertainties of the inputs of DES results in more realistic outputs. Uncertainty in general can be categorized as stochastic and subjective....
A fuzzy consensus building framework for early alignment of construction project teams on the extent of their roles and responsibilitiesDownload
This thesis presents a Fuzzy Consensus Building Framework (FCBF), which enables construction project parties to align their teams on their roles and responsibilities early on in their projects. The framework introduces a model that (1) incorporates consensus of construction project teams in...
Simulation has been used extensively for addressing probabilistic uncertainty in range estimating for construction projects. However, subjective and linguistically expressed information results in added non-probabilistic uncertainty in construction management. Fuzzy logic has been used...
Construction is a risk-filled, uncertain, and dynamic environment. Contractor default is a critical risk that can influence the outcome of projects in the construction industry. Construction project owners and other stakeholders look for methods to predict the potential of contractors to default,...
The simplest form of induction motors, known as AC squirrel cage motor, is the universal workhorse of industrial and commercial premises. For many years it was restricted to constant speed applications while DC motors were preferred for high-performance variable speed and servo drives. With...
