Planning and Analysis of Construction Operations
Focuses on the use of simulation techniques to model and evaluate repetitive construction operations. Based on the CYCLONE and MICROCYCLONE software developed by the authors and used at 38 universities nationwide, it uses a variety of examples from all areas of construction to demonstrate the application of simulation to analyze construction operations.
