  This study describes the development of statistical models to predict strength and slump of silica fume incorporated High-Performance Concrete (HPC). Experimental data of silica fume incorporated HPC mixes were used to develop and validate models. The HPC having compressive strength range of 40-113 MPa and slump range of 180-250 mm were used. Statistical models were developed by regression analysis. The results of prediction by the models showed good agreement with those of experiments and other researchers. The developed models can be used to predict slump and 28 days compressive strength of silica fume incorporated HPC.

  Shophouse is one of the important architecture elements in Malaysia. It has been exist in the country, since the colonial era and still survive until today. Shophouse got it evolution because has been past many years and through many decades so the design, pattern and style are adapted in current situation. The facades, the ornament, the layout, the typology and material have been change from any style to others style but there still has one important element of the shophouse that is not got any attention that is the back-lane. Most of the people know the existence of the back-lane but they do not realize the needs and the functions of back-lane, especially toward shophouse. Although back-lane is the necessity in town planning, its look neglected. So, this writing is about to give the clear statement about the back-lane in shophouse so that researcher could understand the needs of the back-lane and its functions, especially at the shophouse in Malaysia.

  This study highlights the topics of productivity monitoring and measurement in constructing sector. To develop the productivity, several measures have been done in some area of construction projects. Concreting process is taken as case study. The finding pointed the relative importance of this activity in terms of time and cost. Three methods of concreting process were examined; manual method, semi-mechanized method and full-mechanized method. For small size works, the manual method was the best for concreting work less than 50 m3 for work more than 50 m3 and less than 260 m3, the Semi Mechanized Method was the best and finally for work size more than 260 m3, the full mechanized method was the most suitable. A comparative model has been developed to determine the best method of construction, its cost and duration. This model can also be used as a predicting tool for selecting the method during the planning phase of project.

  In this study, the potential for utilising properties of concrete as a powerful tool to predict its compressive strength at different ages has been realised. Novel mathematical models were proposed and developed using multiple non-linear regression equations to predict the concrete strength. The variables used in the prediction models, such as the mix proportion elements, were statistically analysed. According to the analysis, the models provided a good estimation of compressive strength and yielded good correlations with the data used in this study. The correlation coefficients were 0.995 for the prediction of 7- and 28-day compressive strength. Moreover, the proposed models proved to be a significant tool in predicting the compressive strength of different concretes despite variations in the data used to validate the model.

  Indigenous house form is a kind of vernacular architecture typical of valuable heritage sites like core Tripoli in Libya. These habitats are blessed with considerable traditional housing stock. A case study research approach qualitatively evaluates adaptation factors associated with traditional Arab family residences as at the year 2010 in Core Tripoli neighborhoods. Exclusively, physical and social housing typology characters were measured. Qualitatively, housing environments generate user adaptation from a combination competing social and physical requirements like thermal comfort. A double single storey Arab housing type, shared by multiple families seems to dominate Tripoli landscape. Here, spatial hierarchical order separates public from private zones with strong sense of neighborly interaction and social cohesiveness internally. The research findings suggest the congruence of social value of privacy and physical factor of natural ventilation. From these findings, it is evident that social and physical environmental determinants coincide hence, enhancing the sustainability housing total adaptability.

  Back-lane is a need for the municipality, particularly in the development of shophouses. However, the safety of the back-lane is still at an alarming level. This is not consistent with the Safe City concept emphasized by the Department of Town and Country Planning Peninsular Malaysia. Therefore, this study has been done to measure the safety level of shophouse’s back-lane by taking the views of the public, as well as owner/occupant/employee of shophouse.
