    Volume II of this project report contains an evaluation of the performance of aeration slabs in promoting water and oxygen flows into the root zone and in reducing temperature of the root zone. Installation of aeration ...
  • Applications of smart materials in health monitoring of civil infrastructures 

    Soh, Chee Kiong. (2004)
    The last few decades have witnessed the construction of vast infrastructural facilities in Singapore and other parts of the world. Now, the ageing of these structures is creating maintenance problems and increasingly ...
  • Durability, repair and maintenance of concrete structures 

    Chan, Kin-Seng.; Yip, Woon Kwong. (1995)
    Deterioration of reinforced concrete structures is caused by the attacks of destructive processes of chemical, physical or mechanical origin, acting externally or arising internally. It is the ease of transportation of air ...
  • Analysis and design of reinforced concrete deep beams 

    Guan, Ling Wei.; Kong, Fung Kew. (1994)
    Concrete deep beams, referring to beams having span-to-depth ratio of about 5, are structural members with useful applications ranging from pile caps to transfer girders in tall buildings. Deep beams have significant ...
  • Computer-aided design for continuous prestressed concrete box-girder bridges 

    Fan, Sau Cheong (1989)
    This paper presents the concepts of using CADD technology in the preliminary design of concrete box girder bridges. The preliminary design procedure, which is traditionally a manual process based largely on the experience ...
  • Test of a variable-depth post-tensioned flat slab 

    Hurst M. K.; R. Ganeshalingam (1988)
    Nearly all the prestressed concrete flat slabs so far constructed have utilised uniform depth slabs with tendons of varying eccentricity. The behaviour and design of these slabs is well-understood and documented.
  • Use of glass fibre composite bars in prestressed concrete 

    Fan, Sau Cheong; Goh, Peng Khoon (1994)
    Composite materials has offered a new range of products to the prestressing industry. Synthetic materials such as glass, aramid and carbon fibres can be manufactured into high strength composite rods or tendons for ...
  • Customising computer-aided design using macros and languages for engineering application 

    Yap, Sook Foong. (1993)
    Although more than 35 organisations of the local construction industry have been using CAD systems since 1987, they express difficulty in exploiting CAD systems to their fullest potential. The "potential" cited by the ...
  • Characterization of wastewater sludges for ultimate disposal 

    Robert Northrup Jarnis; Vickridge, Ian Gordon (1984)
    During the Project, ninety-two digested and dewatered sludge samples were taken from four representative MOE Sewage Treatment Works and characterized with respect to potential for incineration. Analysis of the samples ...
  • Development of techniques for the analysis of aircraft movements at Changi Airport 

    Fan, Henry Shing Leung (1988)
    This report presents a suite of computer models for the analysis of aircraft movements at Singapore Changi Airport. The models come under three major categories: (1) a runway capacity model and an annual delay model for ...
  • Development of an intelligent CPM scheduling system for building construction management 

    Soh, Chee Kiong. (1992)
    Construction scheduling essentially entails the generation of a 'map' of operations of how the project is to be carried out. The construction schedule, or the 'map', consists of a breakdown of the project into a series of ...
  • Reliability study of non-destructive testing techniques 

    Lim, Ewe Chye.; Wong, Siu Tee. (1993)
    The determination of insitu concrete strength is an integral part of structural appraisal. Non-destructive tests play an important role in determining insitu concrete strength, though there is some uncertainty as to the ...
  • Evaluation of repair materials 

    Jahidul Alum; Tan, Man Hoi (1993)
    Improving the mechanical properties of existing concrete members is often difficult and costly. The use of materials not compatible with concrete, require regular maintenance, incurring additional costs.
  • Automated phototriangulation of premarked targets 

    Aw, York Bin (1994)
    This report presents an attempt to automatically recognize survey targets captured on digital images using a pair of charge-coupled device cameras. Two different types of target were used, circle and rectangle. After ...
  • Ultimate capacities of multiplanar tubular joints 

    Soh, Chee Kiong.; Chiew, Sing Ping.; Fung, Tat Ching. (1996)
    This report presents the experimental and numerical study of the ultimate capacitiesof multiplanar XX tubular joints. The experimental test was used to verify the numerical results and the numerical analysis was used to ...
  • Instrumentation of geotechnical works and studies on behaviour of soils around deep excavations 

    (1984)
    An applied research project was initiated under the Nanyang Technological Institute's Applied Research Scheme under the above title. When massive earthworks began for the Phase II construction of the new NTI campus an ...
  • An investigation of slope stability on the NTI campus, Singapore 

    Pitts, John. (1985)
    Over seventy landslides have been recorded on the NTI campus, many of which are first-time slides. Re-failures are found relatively infre-quently. The classification of the slides shows that non-circular rotational or ...
