Toma de decisiones multicriterio en el análisis sostenible del ciclo de vida de los puentes

Acaban de publicarnos un artículo en la revista Journal of Civil Engineering and Managament, indexada en Q2 del JCR. Se trata de una revisión del estado del arte de la toma de decisiones multicriterio en el análisis sostenible del ciclo de vida de los puentes.

El trabajo se enmarca dentro del proyecto de investigación DIMALIFE que dirijo como investigador principal en la Universitat Politècnica de València.

El diseño sostenible de las infraestructuras se ha convertido en un importante tema de estudio desde el reciente establecimiento de la Agenda 2030. En este artículo se ofrece una revisión sistemática de la bibliografía sobre la utilización de las técnicas de toma de decisiones basadas en criterios múltiples utilizadas hasta ahora para el proyecto sostenible de puentes. También se presta especial atención a la forma en que los estudios evalúan el comportamiento sostenible de los diseños de los puentes a lo largo de su ciclo de vida desde las perspectivas económica, ambiental y social. Aunque SAW y AHP se utilizan de manera recurrente en la evaluación sostenible de los puentes, el análisis de los artículos más recientes muestra que la aplicación de las técnicas TOPSIS y PROMETHEE están adquiriendo cada vez más relevancia para tal fin. La mayoría de los estudios se centran en la investigación de la construcción y la etapa de mantenimiento de los puentes. Sin embargo, se identifica la necesidad de un análisis más profundo cuando se trata de evaluar los impactos resultantes de la etapa del fin del ciclo vital de los puentes desde un punto de vista sostenible. Se ha detectado el uso de la lógica intuitiva y neutrosófica como alternativas emergentes al enfoque difuso de los problemas de toma de decisiones.

ABSTRACT

Sustainable design of infrastructures has become a major matter of study since the recent establishment of the Agenda 2030. This paper provides a systematic literature review on the use of multi-criteria decision making techniques used so far for the sustainable design of bridges. Special attention is put as well on how the reviewed studies assess the sustainable performance of bridge designs along their life cycle from the economic, the environmental and the social perspective. Although SAW and AHP are recurrently used in the sustainable assessment of bridges, the analysis of the most recent articles show that the application of TOPSIS and PROMETHEE techniques are gaining increasing relevance for such purpose. Most of the studies focus on the research of the construction and the maintenance stage of bridges. However, a need for further analysis is identified when it comes to the assessment of the impacts resulting from the End of Life cycle stage of bridges from a sustainable point of view. The use of intuitionistic and neutrosophic logic have been detected as emerging alternatives to the fuzzy approach of decision making problems.

Study of criteria used to obtain a sustainable bridge

Abstract. The sustainable development of bridges is mainly based on meeting the three pillars of sustainability (economic, social and environmental factors) which have different goals. Each main criterion groups a large number of subcritera. Therefore, achieve a sustainable bridge is a complicate problem that involves a high number of factors in each stage of bridge life-cycle. For this reason, decision-making is a helpful process to solve the sustainability problem. The objective of this work is to review the bridge life-cycle decision-making problems that involve criteria that represent the pillars of the sustainability. While some works only consider criteria related to one or two of these pillars, the most current works consider criteria that involve all the pillars of sustainability. Furthermore, most of the works reviewed only study one stage of bridge life-cycle. This study shows the criteria used in some revised journal articles in each bridge life-cycle phase and, the multi-attribute decision-making used to achieve the sustainability. In addition, a small explanation of the obtained information will be carried out.

Indicators for Serviceability for Low-Carbon Building Slab Types

ForjadoMultistorey and high-rise buildings imply a considerable amount of carbon intensive material in their structure and slab floors. The latter are the scope of this paper. Not only structural efficiency and construction cost need consideration, but also energy efficiency, emissions, resource extraction and building flexibility along time. Besides functionality, slab floor components may respond to resource depletion and GHG minimization whilst ensuring cost-effectiveness. As there is not a unique solution for an optimal type of slabs thus we provide a suite of criteria and subcriteria. Accordingly, a multicriteria decision matrix is needed to select the best choice. A group of experts will rank and validate the proposed structure to know how much relevant each one it is for the decision maker.
