Construction of bridges is associated with uncertainties that rise due to unavailability of resources, equipment breakdown and/or working environment. Bridge construction techniques can be grouped into six main categories: 1) castin-situ on false work, 2) cantilever carriage, 3) stepping formwork, 4) launching girder, 5) pre-cast balanced cantilever, and 6)(More)
The aim of this research is to develop a system for estimating cost contingencies during a tender preparation. The proposed system is composed of a causal belief network and a risk-contingency model. A survey was conducted to evaluate the significance of twenty two factors affecting residential projects' cost overruns. The results were employed to define(More)
Simulation modelling and Lean principles have both been applied in the construction industry to improve work processes. The outcomes from their implementation are outstanding and have motivated construction researchers to seek means by which other aspects of construction production could benefit from this development. Therefore the aim of this research is(More)
Simulation models are well known to be one of the most effective tools that are used in the development of the construction industry. One of the newly introduced terms in this industry is the term "Lean Construction". It was inspired from Lean production, which had been long known in the production field for its ability to reduce waste in different process(More)
