Heavy Metal Removal from Wastewater using Novel Adsorbent
Heavy metals, when in abundance, can be very toxic to the medium in which it is dissolved. Adsorption has been used as a suitable water treatment process to remove heavy metals. Many studies have been conducted to remove ...
Human Errors in Structural Design and Construction in the United Arab Emirates
The construction sector in the United Arab Emirates has witnessed an unparalleled growth in the past decade. In spite of recent challenges due to global recession, this sector remains strong in the Gulf region. Experience ...
Phosphorus and Algae Removal via Adsorption
Algal bloom, commonly known as Red Tide in coastal areas, has become one of the major problems facing desalination plants due to the high biomass concentration of microalgae associated with it. It causes operational problems ...
A Framework for Project Time-Cost Optimization Considering Float Consumption Impact
The main objectives of construction projects include completing the project on time and within budget. There is always a tradeoff between time and cost. Time loss is costly and time savings can provide benefits to all the ...
Behavior of Concrete Filled Steel Tube (CFST) Under Different Loading Conditions
Concrete Filled Steel Tubes (CFSTs) were used in construction in the early 1900's. However, the research into CFSTs did not begin until the 1960s. From that time onwards, several studies were conducted on the CFSTs to fully ...
Non-Linear Finite Element Analysis of Steel Base Plates on Leveling Nuts
Base plates are used to connect structural members to their foundations. They are routinely used in cantilevered structures supporting traffic utilities like overhead cantilevered direction signboards, traffic signals, ...
