Procedural 3D reconstruction and quality evaluation of indoor models
Building Information Modelling (BIM) plays an important role in the digital transformation of the construction sector and built environments. BIM promises to achieve better quality infrastructures and to shorten the duration ...
Seismic hazard analysis and management for low-to-moderate seismicity regions based on ground motion simulation
Seismic hazard analysis and management for low-to-moderate seismicity regions is equally important as that for tectonic active regions of high seismicity. However, ground motion modelling for low-to-moderate seismicity ...
A quantitative evaluation of the effectiveness of groundwater management plans
Groundwater is the world’s largest freshwater resource, constituting 96 % of available freshwater. However, overexploitation due to poor or absent management in many regions of the globe has resulted in adverse environmental ...
Optimisations of a seasonal solar thermal energy storage system for space heating in cold climate
A number of seasonal solar thermal energy storage (SSTES) systems have been investigated for heating in cold climate locations due to the utilisation of solar energy. The system overcomes the drawback on the intermittency ...
Analysis of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions from Fragranced Consumer Products
Fragranced consumer products—such as cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and personal care products— emit numerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), some classified as potentially hazardous. In addition, emissions from ...
Investigating the relationship between groundwater depletion and groundwater dependent agriculture on a global scale
The global food requirement has increased by 70% over the last century and the challenge of feeding an additional 2 billion people by 2030 is further intensifying the pressure on food production and irrigated agriculture. ...
A novel Experimental-Computational-Data Driven framework for advancing the understanding of lightweight concrete
The construction sector has recently witnessed a substantial rise in the popularity of prefabricated construction technology. Prefabricated construction, also called modular or off-site construction, has been pushed to ...
Measurement of ground thermal properties for shallow geothermal applications
Human induced climate change is causing global temperatures to rise at an alarming rate. This is caused by greenhouse gas emissions, particularly CO2, and much of this pollution comes from burning fossil fuels for energy. ...
Performances of alkali-activated materials exposed to sewage aggressive environments rich in phosphoric acid
The acidic aggressive environments in sewage system constitute a severe chemical threat to alkaline cementitious concrete, which is one of the major construction materials. It is known that acids especially sulphuric acid, ...
Irrigation informatics: addressing poor irrigation decision support system uptake
Irrigation Decision Support Systems (DSS), in the first decade and a half of the 21st century, suffered from a lack of uptake by their target audience, namely farmers, according to a number of researchers in Australia and ...
