An Integrated Simulation-Based Methodology for Considering Weather Effects on Formwork Removal Times

Larsson, Robert LU (2019) p.415-422
Abstract
This paper presents an integrated simulation-based methodology for considering the effects of weather on formwork removal times. An expert tool for estimating formwork removal times and weather data with high resolution are integrated into a discrete-event simulation model containing a process model of in-situ concrete wall operations. In addition, operational measures (denoted as curing strategies) and their ability to shield concrete curing against various weather conditions are also studied. From the simulation results, it can be concluded that weather conditions and curing strategies may have a significant influence of construction duration. The proposed simulation-based approach facilitates systematic analysis of formwork removal... (More)
