Clean energies for sustainable development for built environment

  The move towards a de-carbonised world, driven partly by climate science and partly by the businessopportunities it offers, will need the promotion of environmentally friendly alternatives, if an acceptablestabilisation level of atmospheric carbon dioxide is to be achieved. This requires the harnessing and use of natural resources that produce no air pollution or greenhouse gases and provides...

Analysis by homogenisation method of structures in reinforced soil and behaviour interfaces of soil/reinforcement

    The reinforced soil is a composite material formed by the addition to a non cohesive soil of steel strip reinforcement which is able to withstand important tension forces. Through friction between the soil and the reinforcement, the ground transmits the tension forces, which develop into the mass that cannot be supported, to the steel reinforcement. The stretched reinforcements thus confer to...

An optimization solution by service science management and engineering (SSME) for using minibuses service as an alternative for private cars around Hentian Kajang in Malaysia

  There are lots of problems in Hentian Kajang: traffic congestion, unnecessary loss of fuel and global warming are only but a few of these problems. This study is an attempt to understand people's behaviour and modal choice and try to influence them, and public transport. A survey was conducted to develop the choice among private cars, minibuses and trains users, and a total of n=250 questionnaires were...
