Visualisation and evaluation of structural characteristics and problems of a classical Ottoman bath
Visual documentation has been accepted as an important phase of architectural heritage conservation. Visualisation of structural characteristics and their problems, however, has gained importance in the last decade. In ...
Effect of some surfactants on SO2-marble reaction
In the polluted atmosphere, sulphur dioxide (SO2) reacts with calcite (CaCO3) in marble producing calcium sulphite hemihydrate (CaSO3·0.5 H2O) and gypsum (CaSO4·2H2O). Gypsum develops crust at rain-sheltered surfaces and ...
Energetic and exergetic design evaluations of a building block based on a hybrid solar envelope method
To achieve sustainable development, there needs to be a focus on decreasing use of non-renewable energy sources and greenhouse gas emissions. In this regard, many studies focus on the strong relationship between energy and ...
A neural network approach for early cost estimation of structural systems of buildings
The importance of decision making in cost estimation for building design processes points to a need for an estimation tool for both designers and project managers. This paper investigates the utility of neural network ...
Investigation of the pozzolanic properties of bricks used in horasan mortars and plasters in historic buildings
(Trans Tech Publications, 2004)
Crushed brick used in historic brick-lime mortars and plasters (Horasan) were characterized for understanding their properties to develop intervention mortars for conservation. Brick powders were separated from original ...
