Abstract:
The thesis describes a study of the effects of weather on construction projects using a simulation model. The model uses project data supplied in the form of a network and historical weather data records to evaluate the effects of the weather elements—temperature, rainfall, windchill and windspeed—on the progress of construction work, using threshold limits specified for weather-sensitive activities. The overall effects of weather are measured by the losses in project production time. Thus by simulating a project over a long period of weather it is possible to obtain results which reasonably reflect the effects of weather on the project.
