In Vietnam, project cycle management (PCM) of road investment projects consists of investment preparation, implementation, construction, and operation processes. The postevaluation of projects during operation has not yet been considered through PCM in a systematic and effective manner. This paper discussed project management issues of road infrastructure projects in Vietnam. Then the paper introduced the post-evaluation process for integrating into Vietnam’s PCM using the PCM methodology developed by Foundation for Advanced Studies on International Development (FASID).

Or you can use following load combinations with the parameter ALSTRINC to account for the 1/3 allowable
increase for the wind and seismic load.Comparison is between Table 1 of the AISC ASD 9th Edition on Page 1-7 versus Table 2-1 of the AISC LRFD 3rd Edition on Page 2-24.
A superstructure can be thought of as the conduit which carries a roadway over a crossing. Like any other bridge component, the superstructure is comprised of many elements. In the bridge design profession, no other component elicits so much discussion, and even downright controversy, as to the type of elements to be utilized in construction. The structural and geometric complexities of the superstructure component make it one of the most challenging design problems in a bridge engineering project....
At APEC Summit2 in Bogor (1994), APII was introduced as a
cooperative framework of APEC member economies
- in response to G7’s GII, Clinton Admin’s NII etc.
At APEC TELMIN1 in Seoul (1995), the five objectives of APII
1) construction of information infrastructure
2) technological cooperation
3) free flow of information
4) human resources development
5) creation of policy and regulatory environment
APII Testbed Project, as a sub-policy for realization of APII, was
co-proposed by Korea and Japan at APEC TEL12 (Shanghai,
Representing nearly fifty years of cooperation between Wiley and the Structural Stability Research Council, the Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures is often described as an invaluable reference for practicing structural engineers and researchers. For generations of engineers and architects, the Guide has served as the definitive work on designing steel and aluminum structures for stability.
Vancouver’s green economy is growing more than twice as fast
as traditional sectors. he green economy includes jobs in clean
technology and products, green building design and construction,
sustainability consulting and education, recycling and composting,
local food, green transportation, and much, much more.
Green jobs can be found across traditional and new industry sectors.
Alongside cohesion policy, the Connecting Europe Facility5 will be one of the EU's most
obvious contributions to cutting through these obstacles by stimulating infrastructure. 2013
should see the facility up and running and key choices made on targeting. It should also see
project bonds being rolled out to help harness private sector investment.
This will go hand in hand with consolidating regulation.
As with every hypothesis test, inference based on alpha estimates can lead to the detection
of a lucky fund, namely a fund with a significant estimated alpha, while its true
alpha is equal to zero. When a single performance test is run on the estimated alpha
of one fund (or one portfolio of funds1), luck is easily controlled by setting the significance
level γ (or alternatively the Size of the test). For instance, if γ is set to 0.05,
the probability of finding one lucky fund under the hypothesis that its alpha is zero
amounts to 0.05, by construction.
All plans of central and local governments focus on the infrastructural construction, such as
energy, transportation and communication, and food processing plants. These developments
require new technology, new equipment, new machinery, and new materials, but at present
these needs cannot be met internally, either in terms of quantity or quality; they must be met
This morning I have reviewed the outlook, the Federal Reserve’s response, and its
policy options for the future should the recovery falter or inflation decline further.
In sum, the pace of recovery in output and employment has slowed somewhat in
recent months, in part because of slower-than-expected growth in consumer spending, as
well as continued weakness in residential and nonresidential construction. Despite this
recent slowing, however, it is reasonable to expect some pickup in growth in 2011 and in

Minimalism continues to be among the most popular themes in interior design. Inside MNM: Minimalist Interiors explains minimalist concepts and concentrates on private interiors. This guide includes dozens of sophisticated photographs and introductions to each chapter written by leaders of this extraordinary, contemporary design movement. All the examples featured in the book have one thing in common: they feature the essential, but use the minimal.
Is an autonomous and independent foundation with the objectives of safeguarding life, property
and the environment, at sea and onshore. DNV undertakes classification, certification, and other verification and consultancy services relating to quality of ships, offshore units and installations, and onshore industries worldwide, and carries out research in relation to these functions.
There is a debate on the sugar production of the classical methods of analysis are in fact different methods or different simply to develop essentially the same method. In this paper proposed two methods which, without invalidating the previous ones, actually correspond to two different ways of analyzing the yield and thus create favorable conditions for a better understanding of the general problem of the failure of the plate. These methods are almost abandoned "method at the normal time" and a "new method tilt time.
A national infrastructure council should also be tasked with collecting and dis-
seminating best practices pertaining to project selection, preventative mainte-
nance, and construction cost reduction. It would also promote the use of common
objective measures to evaluate the progress of ongoing and completed infrastruc-
ture projects. The council would work to identify opportunities for innovation
and help develop new mechanisms for leveraging private investment.
The term ‘the Grid’ was coined in the mid-1990s to denote a proposed distributed computing infrastructure for advanced science and engineering . Considerable progress has since been made on the construction of such an infrastructure (e.g., [2–5]), but the term ‘Grid’ has also been conﬂated, at least in
