(2014-05-30)The sustainability of housing units can be improved by optimizing their social, environmental, and economic performances. The integration of green building equipment and systems such as geothermal heat pumps and water-efficient ...
(2012-02-01)Accurate estimation of road pavement geometry and layer material properties through the use of proper nondestructive testing and sensor technologies is essential for evaluating pavement’s structural condition and determining ...
(2013-05-24)Large-scale groundwater management problems pose great computational challenges for decision making because of the spatial complexity and heterogeneity. The major output of this thesis is a modeling method to solve large-scale ...
System reliability analysis of structures subjected to fatigue induced sequential failures using evolutionary algorithms (2011-01-21)In the past, many catastrophic failures have occurred due to lack of redundancy and managerial oversight. For example, it was found that local failures due to improper welds that connected the suspended truss to the anchor ...
