Numerous previous applications have demonstrated the high potential of discrete simulation methodologies in designing and analyzing construction systems. Still, construction simulation applications largely remain software exercises at the academic level because of the time and effort as required in constructing a valid simulation model that matches the real(More)
The present research is intended to address dynamic construction-process simulation methods, with a focus on how to effectively model resource transit among various activity locations in the site system. Following a review of basic simulation paradigms and recent research developments, we propose a new process mapping and simulation methodology for modeling(More)
To maximize the cost efficiency in constructing the sports facilities for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, we applied the state-of-the-art construction operations simulation modeling to plan the operations of installing the steel structure, find the proper installation sequence and formulate the assembling area use schedule. The SDESA platform resulting from(More)
The progress on a bridge construction project is inevitably dictated by construction sequence, resource availability and structural adequacy. Most construction planning exercises consider only time, sequence and resource factors. However, in practice, the structural adequacy of a partially formed permanent bridge along with critical temporary facilities is(More)
