Recently, the arbitration system for defect disputes has been introduced to settle the disputes arising from defects in apartment buildings. However, the conciliation system did not reflect the current technical issues of defect disputes and the opinions of each party involved in the disputes. Moreover, it revealed more imperfections in the content and the process of the system itself. Therefore, this study aims to review the technical aspects of defect disputes, and suggest an alternative to the conventional conciliation system. This paper also discusses logical factors that can be addressed for the current subjective judgment. It is recommended that each party involved in the defect dispute build mutual trust in order to meet social needs, which is the underlying support for the revitalization of the institutional level.

DOI : 10.5345/JKIC.2011.06.3.221
This study is on the development of a System Dynamics Model for business feasibility analysis of an apartment house development project. In this study, we analyzed other apartment development projects and research projects, and identified the cash flow items, which consist of revenue and expenditure items. In addition, we made efforts to find the influence relationship among these using the system thinking method and developed a system dynamics model. In order to test the model, a case study was conducted in which it was applied to an apartment development project. Vensim, a System Dynamics Modeling and simulation software package was used to analyze and test the model. The model suggested in this study can help a developer to make decisions on project financing at the initial stage of an apartment house development project.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Building Construction, volume 11, issue 3, 2011, Pages 229~237
DOI : 10.5345/JKIC.2011.06.3.229
The pullout test is a nondestructive testing method certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and British Standards (BS). Research has shown that it is very reliable in terms of evaluating the concrete strength of reinforced concrete members. However, the pullout test is rarely performed on domestic construction sites due to the complex procedures and high costs involved. This study proposes a new pullout test composed of a post installable break-off bolt, an insert nut, and a pullout tester, which satisfy both economical and practical purposes on a construction site. Three different types of special fastening methods, a temporary fixed bolt, a plastic fixed panel, and a fixed bar, have been developed. A pullout tester is proposed that is driven by the circle force introduced into a handle composed of eight gears without a load cell and a hydraulic cylinder. The serviceability and reliability of these instruments were investigated through experiments at construction sites. Furthermore, the sample pullout test with a wall specimen was conducted to estimate the usefulness of the temporary fixed bolt type of fastening methods and pullout devices. Eventually, the developed instruments will be useful on construction sites if minor requirements are met.

Choosing the best-performance materials is a crucial task for the successful completion of a project in the construction field. In general, the process of material selection is performed through the use of information by a highly experienced expert and the purchasing agent, without the assistance of logical decision-making techniques. For this reason, the construction field has considered various artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to support decision systems as their own selection method. This study proposes the application of a systematic and efficient support vector machine (SVM) model to select optimal exterior materials. The dataset of the study is 120 completed construction projects in South Korea. A total of 8 input determinants were identified and verified from the literature review and interviews with experts. Using data classification and normalization, these 120 sets were divided into 3 groups, and then 5 binary classification models were constructed in a one-against-all (OAA) multi classification method. The SVM model, based on the kernel radical basis function, yielded a prediction accuracy rate of 87.5%. This study indicates that the SVM model appears to be feasible as a decision support system for selecting an optimal construction method.

Jung, Young-Chul ; Kim, Sung-Eun ; Jang, Young-Jun ; Kim, Tae-Hui ; Kim, Gwang-Hee ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Building Construction, volume 11, issue 3, 2011, Pages 247~255

Currently, there is database for per unit requirements of major construction materials in terms of energy consumption and
emission based on the input-output table published by the Bank of Korea in 2000, but no database for per unit requirements based on input-output tables was published in 2005 and 2007. The purpose of this study was to calculate the unit requirement values of major construction materials in terms of energy consumption and
emission generated by using the input-output tables published in 2005 and 2007. To estimate the unit requirement values, a database building method with the input-output tables was adopted by selecting 16 types of construction materials in wide use on construction sites. When the study results were compared with existing unit requirement values based on the input-output table of 2000, there were small discrepancies, from which it can be interpreted that the method used in the study is reasonable. Unit requirement values estimated based on input-output tables of 2005 and 2007 tended to decrease, and the highest value of energy consumption and
emission were found in the materials using cement and rebar.

Park, Cheul-Woo ; Her, Jae-Won ; Lim, Nam-Gi ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Building Construction, volume 11, issue 3, 2011, Pages 256~264
DOI : 10.5345/JKIC.2011.06.3.256
By implementing an analysis on the liquid flame proof agent infiltration of microwave-heated wood under soaking conditions (room temperature soaking, heat soaking), its correlation with wood temperature, and the structure of wood and permeating components after soaking in flame proof agent, which was carried out as basic research in order to improve the fire resistance performance of the wood itself, it is found that the infiltration increases as the microwave heating time increases, while for heat soaking, it is found that high infiltration as well as the stable permeability of flame proof agent is achievable. Also, when the wood temperature is more than
, the infiltration by the flame proof agent increased, and a very even infiltration of flame proof agent was observed, which implies that the liquid flame proof agent has a dependency on temperature change of the wood as a condition to penetrate into the wood. As a result of fine structure analysis, the flame proof agent transfer between cells through pits was considered as a cause to increase the infiltration of flame proof agent, and it is also shown that for heat soaking among the permeating component analysis, as the crystallized flame proof agent around the heartwood and sapwood inner pits increases, the flame proof agent can penetrate into the the heartwood part.

As BIM is now being accepted and broadly expanded in the building industry, the demand for developing, managing, submitting, and checking the BIM models has increased. To meet this demand, it is necessary to develop and spread BIM guidelines, standards, and manuals. Meanwhile, as the number of public construction projects increases, the importance of quantifying the BIM quality checking and evaluation also grows. This study aims to enhance our understanding of the definition and characteristics of BIM quality management, and review the current situation of BIM standards worldwide. In particular, by focusing on BIM quality control and its relevant subjects, the minimum standards for BIM quality management are suggested.

The construction industry has achieved many benefits through the mechanization of the construction. However, due to accidents for construction machinery, the mortality rate has increased rapidly. Thus, the objective of this study is to develop of tilt modules for object detection system of excavator. The modified laser sensor that increase the efficiency of object detection system was tested. Based on these results, tilt modules were developed through the conceptual design and detailed design. Then, this tilt modules can be applied to the safety management system of excavator and using this tilt modules will be able to improve the efficiency of the system.

As the construction industry has recently been transformed by the emergence of ubiquitous and intelligent technology, there have been major changes in the management methods employed. Specifically, next-generation construction management systems have been developed that collect and analyze many pieces of information in real time by using various wireless sensors and networks. The purpose of this study is to understand the current status of Ubiquitous Sensor Networks (USN) in the construction sector, and to gain fundamental data for a system of measuring concrete curing temperature in a construction site that employs a USN. By investigating the application status of USN, it was confirmed that USN has mainly been applied to the maintenance of facilities, safety management, and quality control. In addition, a field experiment in which the curing temperature of concrete was measured using a USN was carried out to evaluate two systems with wireless sensor networks, and the applicability of these systems on site was confirmed. However, it is estimated that the embedded wireless sensor type is affected by metal equipment on site, internal battery of sensor and concrete depth, and studies to provide more stable system by USN are thus required.
The Voluntary Assurance of Quality by Contractors in the Construction Phase
Cha, Sang-Ho ; Lee, Sang-Beom ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Building Construction, volume 11, issue 3, 2011, Pages 292~300

The construction industry in Korea has seen significant improvements in quality management techniques, driven by the dramatic development of new technology through Manhattanization and enlargements, but compared with technical development, the level of building quality improvement is still lagging behind. In the meantime, as the interest in construction quality soars due to changes in user consciousness, the level of quality that is being demanded is rising. The government has reinforced quality systems by implementing responsible supervision requirements and granting overseas companies permission to enter the supervision business in Korea, and private sector companies also are attempting quality improvement through quality assurance approaches like the preliminary qualification screening system and ISO 9000 series. But currently, building constructions are done only according to the construction specifications of project owners, whose design, materials and construction methods are already decided, and do not leave any necessity or opportunity for technical developments for the quality improvement of contractors. Therefore, in this study, a work process and system improvement plan for payment regulations is proposed, with which contractors can secure quality voluntarily in the building construction phase.

Apartment housings that adopt a bearing wall structure design, which account for a majority of the housing units available in Korea, are not free from structural constraints that limit the extension of their service life. The resulting need for reconstruction from the ground up requires a massive consumption of resources and energy, and triggers environmental pollution resulting from construction wastes. As a solution to such issues, the government enforces incentive schemes to promote a remodeling-friendly rahmen structure design. Green Frame, which is a novel concept of composite precast concrete structure to support rahmen structure apartment housing buildings, can address the constraints of bearing wall structure and conventional rahmen structure designs that limit the potential for remodeling projects, while reducing the term of construction. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the characteristics of Green Frame and its absolute term of construction, and compare the terms of frame work construction in apartment housing projects adopting different structural design approaches to illuminate their differences. In the end, Green Frame is found to be capable of reducing the term of construction in apartment housing projects. As the term of construction is a very critical element of a construction project, Green Frame will ultimately prove to be one of the key enablers to ensure the success of apartment housing construction projects.
Quantitative Evaluation of Vibration of Structure by Aircraft Noise and Installation Criteria of Building in Air bases
Ahn, Sang-Whoon ; Lim, Nam-Gi ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Building Construction, volume 11, issue 3, 2011, Pages 310~318
DOI : 10.5345/JKIC.2011.06.3.310
Due to the lack of a noise and vibration survey for military air bases, noise and vibration are not taken into consideration for new installations, which has resulted in a number of problems, including the separation of tiles. Furthermore, it is not possible to establish appropriate counter-vibration plans to minimize damage resulting from vibration on structures, since no standard is in place when location for residence areas, including military quarters, is determined. In this context, this research includes a noise and vibration survey, on which basis a quantitative evaluation model for vibration of structure by aircraft noise is generated, as well as through linear regression analysis, and suggests installation standards by purpose of structure, minimizing the damage due to noise and vibration, and establishing appropriate counter-vibration plans for future installation and repairs of on-base structures in the military bases.

During a construction project, construction managers must be provided with material information to help them to make decisions more efficiently without delaying the delivery of material. Construction work can be smoothly performed with the proper material supply. Construction duration depends on several material-related decisions, including the order, delivery, and allocation of material to the correct work location. Hence, it is worthwhile to introduce data warehouse techniques that generate subject-oriented and integrated data to construction material management. The data warehouse for construction material management can perform multidimensional analysis and then define KPIs (Key Performance Index) in order to provide construction managers with construction material information such as lead time, material delivery rate, material installation rate and so on. This research proposes a method of effectively facilitating large amounts of data in the operating systems during the construction management process. In other words, the proposed method can supply structured and multi-perspective material-related information using data warehouse techniques.
