    In many agricultural catchments of Europe and North America, pesticides occur at generally low concentrations with significant temporal variation. This poses several challenges for both monitoring and understanding ecological ...
  • A fuzzy model and algorithm to handle subjectivity in life cycle costing based decision-making. 

    Kishk, Mohammed; Al-Hajj, Assem (Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2000)
    KISHK, M. and AL-HAJJ, A., 2000. A fuzzy model and algorithm to handle subjectivity in life cycle costing based decision-making. Journal of Financial Management of Property and Construction, 5(1-2), pp. 93-104
    A life cycle costing (LCC) algorithm that can effectively deal with judgmental assessments of input parameters is proposed. This algorithm is based on the fuzzy set theory and interval mathematics. The development of the ...
