  • An investigation on fire hazard and smoke toxicity of epoxy FRP composites
    • First page: 230
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose The use of FRP strengthening strips has been found rapid growth in construction industry of Iran and many other countries. However; the fire and smoke hazards of these materials in both construction and use phases need to be determined and the appropriated measures against fire should be taken. Design/methodology/approach The fire hazards of two types of fibre reinforced epoxy composites (GFRP and CFRP) were investigated in bench-scale using cone calorimeter test method. Time to ignition, heat release rate, total heat release, smoke release and Carbon monoxide production were measured and analyzed. Time to flashover of an assumed room lined with the tested FRP was analyzed with Conetools software. Smoke production and toxicity of the considered composites were also analyzed and discussed, using the fractional effective dose (FED) parameter. Findings The results showed that the tested FRP products had a high fire hazard and a potential high contribution to fire growth. The tests also proved that the used epoxy resin had a low glass transition temperature, around 50°C, therefore; the mechanical strength of the product could be drastically reduced at first stages of a probable fire incident. This also showed that a regular thermal barrier, typically used for protection of plastic foams against fire, couldn’t be sufficient for the protection of strengthening FRP composites. Originality/value This research was carried out for the first time for the materials used in construction industry of Iran. The results and achievements were very useful for safe use and development of proper details of application of the system.

  • The experimental behavior of CFRP-strengthened reinforced concrete slabs
           with fire protection systems subjected to standard fire exposure
    • First page: 238
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose Fire resistance of CFRP-strengthened concrete slabs were evaluated in two forms of unprotected and protected against fire. Design/methodology/approach In order to achieve the objective, an unstrengthened and two CFRP strengthened concrete slab were firstly subjected to increasing gravity loading until failure. Subsequently, the unstrengthened concrete slab was placed on a furnace and was subjected to a constant service gravity load and then, the temperature of the furnace was increased according to a standard temperature-time curve until the failure of the slab occurred. This slab was strengthened by CFRP with two different amounts and then, in two cases of unprotected and protected against fire were tested in accordance with the aforementioned method. Findings The gravity test results revealed that CFRP strips bonded to concrete slabs increased the load-bearing capacity considerably. So, this method can be suitable for flexural strengthening of concrete slabs. The fire test results showed that because of more load-bearing capacity and subsequently increase in service gravity load, the strengthened concrete slab failed in a short time due to the lack of CFRP resistance against fire. By contrast, the protected specimens resisted the fire in a considerable time. In addition, it was revealed that details of fire protective coating had an important effect on fire resistance duration. Originality/value It is notable that in the literature, there is a lack of data on the fire endurance of FRP-strengthened concrete slabs alone without any fire protection system. Furthermore, the applicability and effectiveness of a new kind of spray mineral fire protective coatings was evaluated.

  • A new demountable seismic-resistant joint to improve industrial building
           reparability
    • First page: 251
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose In seismic-prone areas, post-event operability is an important issue for steel warehouses. Even if surviving earthquakes with minimal probability of collapse, these structures might suffer so much damage, that their repair costs would be prohibitive. Strategies for limiting the building's damaged zones to specific parts (or "fuses") can reduce repair costs. However, the replaceable part is limited to a small portion of the structure, whereas the rest cannot be disassembled. This is an issue for structures whose life span depends more likely on economics rather than on structural performances. Therefore, making them easily disassembled would be an advantage not only in seismic areas but also in any industrialized area. The aim of this paper is to explore the Design for Disassembly (DfD) approach to complement seismic design and find a compromise between them. Design/methodology/approach In this work, one single type of structures was analyzed (the moment resisting frame), focusing on the design of a “disassemblable” seismic-resistant steel connection. The design process involved several iterations until an “optimum” compromise between seismic design and DfD was met. Findings This study shows that a compromise between seismic design and DfD is possible. In this case, the compromise was achieved at the expenses of more complex design calculations and a greater number of components than standard connections. However, this would be compensated for by a higher residual value for the entire structure. Originality/value Eventually, it was proved that a metric for assessing DfD steel connections is possible, but structural analyses are needed to validate it.

  • Built asset management climate change adaptation model
    • First page: 263
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose Climate change continues to pose major challenges to those responsible for the management of built assets. The adaptation required to address long-term building performance affected by climate change rarely get prioritised above more immediate, short-term needs (general built asset management needs). This paper, thus presents results of an action research addressing climate change adaptation of selected social housing stock in the UK. Design/methodology/approach The study adopts an in-depth participatory action research with a London based social landlord and integrates climate change adaptation framework and performance based model established through author’s previous research projects. Findings A staged process for including adaptation measures in built asset management strategy is developed along with metrics to analyse the performance of the housing stock against climate change impacts of flooding. The prioritisation of adaptation measure implementation into long term built asset management plans was examined through cost based appraisal. Research limitations/implications The research was carried out with a singular organisation, already acquainted with potential climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptive capacity assessment. The process adopted will differ for similar organisation in the sector with different settings and limited working knowledge of climate change impact assessment. Practical implications The paper concludes with a 10 step process developed as an aide memoir to guide social landlords through the climate change adaptation planning process. Originality/value In addition to the practical results from the study the paper outlines a novel process that integrates resilience concepts, risk framing (to climate change impacts) and performance management into built asset management (maintenance and refurbishment) planning.

  • Does the post-disaster resilient city really exist' A critical
           analysis of the heterogeneous transformative capacities of housing
           reconstruction 'resilience cells'.
    • First page: 275
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to advance the understanding of 'resilience' by disentangling the contentious interactions of various parameters that define and guide resilience trajectories – such as the physical infrastructure, socio-spatial inequalities, path dependencies, power relationships, competing discourses and human agency. This socio-political reconstruction of 'resilience' is needed for two reasons: a) the concept of resilience becomes more responsive to the complex realities on the ground, and b) the discussion moves towards the promotion of more dynamic recovery governance models that can promote socially-just allocated redundancy in housing actions; which could be seen as a key to incubating resilience. Design/methodology/approach This is a conceptual paper that mobilizes the theories of urban political ecology, social innovation and housing with the aim to a) to examine the tensions between the various discourses that steer housing production during post-disaster recovery processes, and b) to put a spotlight on the heterogeneity in the transformative capacity of the various actors, institutions and visions of housing systems that preexist or emerge in the post-disaster city. This heterogeneity of actors (growth coalitions, neighborhood associations, housing cooperatives), consequently leads the discussion towards the investigation of ‘new’ roles of the state in formulating relevant disaster governance models and housing (re)construction systems. Findings The initial stress produced by a natural event is often extended due to long-term unmet housing needs. The repercussions of this prolonged stress is a loss of social progress partly due to the reiterated oppression of alternative housing production propositions. In our paper we conclude that an asset-based community development approach to recovery can provide an antidote to the vicious cycles of social stress by opening up diverse housing options. This means that the recovery destiny is not predetermined according to pre-set ideas but is molded by the various bottom-up dynamics who democratically sketch the final socially desirable reconstruction outcome(s). Originality/value The contribution of the paper is two-fold. By using theoretical insights from urban political ecology, housing studies and social innovation, the paper first builds up onto the current reconstruction of the notion of disaster resilience. Secondly, by identifying a heterogeneity of 'social resilience cells', the paper leads the discussion towards the investigation of the ‘new’ role of the state in formulating relevant recovery governance models. In this respect, the paper builds a narrative of social justice in terms of redistribution of resources and cultivation of empowerment across the various housing providers who struggle for their right to the reconstruction experiment.

  • Analysing community needs and skills for enhancing disaster resilience in
           the built environment
    • First page: 292
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose A better cooperation among all the stakeholders working towards enhancing the disaster resilience of societies can only be achieved if the expectations or the needs of each stakeholder are understood. This study attempts to outline the needs of communities affected by disasters for the purpose of aligning the needs and skill requirements with the abilities of built environment professionals serving these communities. Therefore, the study aims to identify and describe community needs and skill requirements for enhancing disaster resilience. Design/methodology/approach The study adopted literature review and semi-structured interviews. The semi-structured interviews were conducted with key members of some communities affected by disasters as well as some of the professionals that participated in the restoration/reconstruction of those communities. Data obtained were analysed using Nvivo 10. Findings The study revealed the current and emerging needs and skills of communities related to the built environment professionals towards enhancing disaster resilience. Thus, twenty nine classifications of skill and needs were derived and classified under five major disaster resilience dimensions to include social, economic, technological, environmental and institutional. Research limitations/implications This study focuses only of the needs and skills of the ‘community’, which is the major stakeholder that are basically the receiver of all what other stakeholders in disaster resilience have to offer. Practical implications This study would be beneficial to the built environment professionals involved in disaster resilience to be aware of the specific needs and skills of the communities affected by disasters for the purpose of developing their competences. Originality/value The study findings would be useful for both the built environment professionals and higher education institutions (HEIs). Since it is important for professionals to update and upgrade their knowledge towards enhancing their capabilities and meeting the expectations of stakeholders towards enhancing societal resilience to disasters across all domains of resilience.

  • An owner-driven reconstruction in Bihar
    • First page: 306
      Abstract: International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, Volume 8, Issue 3, June 2017.
      Purpose To identify ‘key processes’ during the owner-driven reconstruction (ODR) process, by implementing agencies, to enhance the long-term disaster-resilience of housing and for community autonomy. Design/methodology/approach A mixed methods methodology and ‘case-study’ approach is adopted to compare good practice reconstruction projects in India in the last 15 years. This paper discusses empirical investigations conducted in two settlements of Bihar - Orlaha and Puraini, after major flooding in 2008. The sites were visited during 2012 and 2014. Findings One of the key processes that lead to the success of the ODR process and its effect on the long-term disaster-resilience in Bihar is community mobilization; which functions primarily as an information and communication device promoting the success (or otherwise) of the reconstruction process. Originality/value The findings are based on empirical evidence gathered during in-field investigations and interviews during 2012 and 2014, to post-disaster reconstructed villages. While these findings represent a snapshot of diverse and complex disaster experiences in the Indian context, the comparison offers insight on how to turn the rhetoric surrounding ‘owner-driven’ or ‘built back better’ into positive long-term community outcomes.
