The influence of heat transfer and storage in structural precast building components on indoor environments
Knowledge about the heat transfer and storage in concrete components of the building envelope is vital in evaluating the environmental and energy performance of buildings. Providing sufficient thermal mass of the building ...
The environmental performance of a reinforced precast concrete slab with void forming system
In some climates people spend approximately 90% of their lives indoors. Thus, it is very important to maintain healthy and comfortable conditions in buildings. The building sector is responsible for about 40% of the ...
Real-time monitoring of a hybrid precast and in situ concrete flat slab system
This paper presents a scheme developed for instrumentation and monitoring of the structural performance of a hybrid precast and in situ concrete flat slab system employed in an educational building. The system contains a ...
Real-time monitoring and performance of retaining structures
(NUI Galway, 2014-08)
The advent of reliable real-time monitoring devices has changed the way we monitor the construction of geotechnical infrastructure. This paper presents a case study where Shaped Accel Arrays (SAA) were employed as part ...
