Facility Management: Erfolg in der Immobilienbewirtschaftung

Der Management-Leitfaden zur Einführung und Umsetzung von Facility administration erscheint bereits in der 6. Auflage. Die Neubearbeitung der Themen reicht von der nachhaltigen Gebäudebewirtschaftung über die Problematik bei der Einführung einer elektronischen Gebäudeakte, bis hin zur Produktionssteigerung mit Hilfe eines CAFM-Gebäudeinformationssystems und trägt damit dem heutigen Stand der Technik Rechnung.

However, if samples of sensitive clays in particular are significantly disturbed, then reconsolidation may well lead to changes in moisture content, and hence a suffer structure, with Eu determinations which are on the high side. Factors which should be considered when using consolidated undrained tests to estimate the deformation are: type of consolidation, that is, whether isotropic or anisotropic; the stress level; consolidation period; the stress path followed; the rate of strain; the elapsed times between opening up a test pit or drilling a borehole, taking a sample, and then testing it; the size of the sample; orientation of the sample.
