  • Sh, Umer Khayyam (2019-11-13)
    Maximum linear feedback shift registers (LFSRs) based on primitive polynomials are commonly used to generate maximum length sequences (m-sequences). An m-sequence is a pseudorandom sequence that exhibits ideal randomness ...
  • Karperien, Lucas (2019-11-08)
    Wound treatment is a significant field in healthcare, but one with huge potential and need for advancement. Infection monitoring, in its current state, is a largely primitive affair, relying on visual and olfactory inspection ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Russell, Alan (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1995)
    This paper examines integrated computer systems for the construction industry—in particular, for “medium-sized” contractors who carry out much of the construction work performed in this country. The main focus of the ...
  • Rankin, Jeff H.; Froese, Thomas M.; Waugh, Lloyd M. (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 1997)
    Computer Assisted Construction Planning (CACP) facilitates development of initial comprehensive construction plans, which the user can customize to suit current needs. Comprehensive suggests plans that include work schedules, ...
  • Zhang, Changli (2019-10-30)
    In spite of the ever-growing technology in information security, organizations are still vulnerable to security attacks due to mistakes made by their employees. To evaluate organizational security vulnerability and keep ...
  • Froese, Thomas M. (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    Product and process model data standards are required to provide the unifying language through which integrated computer systems for architecture, engineering, and construction can converse. STEP, the Standard for the ...
  • Yu, Kevin; Froese, Thomas M. (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    Computer-integrated Construction (CIC) must rely on the project information being shared among various computer applications used by many project participants. This information sharing is based on the development of AEC ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Waugh, Lloyd (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    The Internet is the most rapidly growing technology in society today and it is changing the way people work and communicate. This impact includes changes to the practice of engineering, and these changes will continue as ...
  • Yu, Kevin; Froese, Thomas M.; Vinet, Bruno (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 1997)
    Facilities Management (FM) covers a broad range of industry functions and processes involving large dollar values. However, the use of Information Technology (IT) in FM has, to date, remained slow. Due, in part, to the ...
  • Halfawy, Mahmoud R.; Froese, Thomas M. (Congrès annuel de la Société canadienne de génie civil / Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 2002)
    This paper presents a component-based framework that provides a set of reusable components to facilitate the implementation of distributed AEC/FM integrated project systems. The framework addresses the specific characteristics ...
  • Pouria, Arezou; Froese, Thomas M. (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 2001)
    This paper presents an ongoing research project that aims to define transaction and implementation standards for data exchanges within the Architectural, Engineering, Construction, and Facility Management (AEC/FM) industry. ...
  • Hassanain, M.A.; Froese, Thomas M.; Vanier, D.J. (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 2001)
    This paper discusses the required functionality and architecture for a distributed, model-based, integrated asset-management prototype system. The prototype serves to evaluate and test a proposed generic framework for ...
  • Halfawy, Mahmoud; Froese, Thomas M. (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 2001)
    The architecture, engineering, construction, and facility management (AEC/FM) industry in Canada has been facing an unprecedented level of competition. To stay competitive in today’s marketplace, the Canadian AEC/FM industry ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Waugh, Lloyd; Pouria, Arezou (Conference of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, 2001)
    This paper describes the results of a survey that examines speculations about how information technology will be used to support project management 20 years from now in the year 2020. The paper reports and interprets the ...
  • Staub-French, S.; Froese, Thomas M. (5e Conférence spécialisée sur le génie de la construction de la Société canadienne de génie civil / 5th Construction Specialty Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 2003)
    Much of the current research and development in the area of information technology for architecture, engineering and construction is in the area of model-based tools and interoperability (also known as building information ...
  • Froese, Thomas M. (6th Construction Specialty Conference / 6e Conférence spécialisée sur le génie de la construction, 2005)
    New information technologies for the construction industry are emerging that emphasize the integration of project information and the ability to work with comprehensive, computer-based building models. These hold the ...
  • Fan, T.; Froese, Thomas M. (6th Construction Specialty Conference / 6e Conférence spécialisée sur le génie de la construction, 2005)
    Simulation games are a proven technology to enhance and supplement education and training in construction management. Integration of simulation games into the civil engineering curriculum helps bridge the gap between ...
  • Halfawy, Mahmoud; Froese, Thomas M. (6th Construction Specialty Conference / 6e Conférence spécialisée sur le génie de la construction, 2005)
    Integration trends in the Architectural, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry are increasing the demands for the implementation and deployment of integrated project systems. Much of the research throughout the last ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Aranda-Mena, Guillermo; Chevez, Agustin; Crawford, John (Congrès annuel 2008 de la SCGC / CSCE 2008 Annual Conference, 2008)
    Building Information Model (BIM) technology has received much attention in research, commercial software, and industrial practice. Yet its use in practice represents only early adopters, as most potential users remain ...
  • Save, P.W.; Froese, Thomas M. (2014-11)
    Any group that creates challenging goals also requires a strategy to achieve them. In the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) case, the goals are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 33% below 2007 levels by 2015, and ...
