Abstract: This dissertation investigates the feasibility of integrating construction operations simulation technique called simplified discrete event simulation approach (SDESA) with in-construction structural health monitoring (SHM) technology and finite element analysis approach, with the intention to make a good coordination between resources and real-time structural conditions resulting in a possible expansion of the scheduling methodology. The Guangzhou Television and Sightseeing Tower (GTST) is taken as an engineering paradigm. This dissertation consists of three main parts: Part I is to introduce the background of this research and review the construction operations simulation technology and SHM technology; Part II is to make a combination analysis through integrating the SDESA simulation results and the monitoring data with the finite element model (FEM) analysis results to validate the feasibility of the research; Part III is to conclude the dissertation and suggest the further study. Part I covers the first three chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the background and objectives of this research. Chapter 2 reviews the construction operations simulation technology and application of SHM technology in bridges and buildings. Chapter 3 introduces the in-construction SHM system for the GTST in detail. Part II (Chapter 4) is the core of this dissertation. In Chapter 4, each ring of the steel outer structure is defined as the "connection-resource" between the construction operation simulation and in-construction structural monitoring with FEM analysis. The installation of one typical ring of steel outer structure will be simulated by SDESA, and then the monitoring data and FEM analysis results of one single day during the ring construction period will be used to make a combination analysis with the SDESA simulation schedule results to validate the feasibility of the research. In the end of this dissertation, Part III (chapter 5) suggests some recommendations for the further study.
