Dr. Islam El-adaway, the Hurst McCarthy Endowed Professor in Construction Engineering and Management, and his research team participated in the 2023 I3CE American Society of Civil Engineers – International Conference on Computing in Civil Engineering. The conference is a leading international platform for exploring the latest advancements in computing and their applications to the field of civil engineering. The event, hosted by Oregon State University, took place June 25-28 in Corvallis, Oregon.
During the conference, El-adaway’s team presented several papers. They include:
- “System dynamics modeling for investigating the retention of skilled labor in the construction market,” authored by Tamima Elbashbishy, a doctoral student in civil engineering, and El-adaway and presented by Elbashbishy.
- “Predicting high-impact research in the construction engineering and management domain using computational machine learning,” authored by El-adaway, Gasser G. Ali, a 2023 Ph.D. graduate in civil engineering, and civil engineering doctoral students, Muaz Ahmed, Radwa Eissa, Mohamad Abdul Nabi, Tamima Elbashbishy and Ramy Khalef. Presented by Bahaa Chammout, a doctoral student in civil engineering.
- “Understanding of risky determinants affecting the success of design build airport projects using computational clustering techniques,” authored by Khalef and El-adaway. Presented by Fareed Salih, a doctoral student in civil engineering.
- “Risk-reward allocation among integrated project delivery method stakeholders: a gamified cooperative data simulation approach,” authored by Eissa, Abdul Nabi and El-adaway. Presented by Eissa.
- “Circular economy strategies for reducing embodied carbon in the US commercial building stocks: a system dynamics modeling approach,” authored by Eissa and El-adaway. Presented by Eissa.
- “Agent-based modeling for understanding incentives associated with distributed solar generation,” authored by Ali and El-adaway. Presented by Elbashbishy.
- “Studying contribution of associated stakeholders in risk control of modularized construction under different project delivery methods: a graph restricted cooperative games approach,” authored by Abdul Nabi and El-adaway. Presented by Abdul Nabi.
