THE USE OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY AND COMPUTER SIMULATION FOR LOADER-TRUCK PRODUCTION STUDIES

This paper illustrates how a combination of 2 relatively new analysis techniques for the construction industry- computer simulation and time-lapse photography-may be used to provide a construction estimator and planner with additional tools for determining the optimum method of earthmoving with loaders and trucks. The paper discusses the method of data collection using time-lapse photography and the production results obtained. It also discusses the development of the SIMSCRIPT computer simulation program based on the results of these field observations and indicates how a program of this type may be validated. The authors conclude that the results obtained should be helpful to contractors in their decision-making responsibilities.
